    I am in the exact same boat as you.

    Canadian passport with country of birth listed as Jamaica.

    There is no problem at all! I sometimes get a smile and a "welcome home" from the immigration agent at the airport upon arrival in Jamaica.

    Enjoy your visit!!

      if you are returning to Canada...den there is no problem. If you are going as a visitor, how they even going to know that you are JA born? And im sure it doesnt matter!

          yes they do list your country of birth...the only problem i had using my US passport was that I had a barrel waiting on the wharf and the customs officer refused to stamp my bill of lading claiming that I was not a Jamaican citizen anymore

          other than that you should not experience any problems.

                  this is true!!! but does not apply to ppl who naturalize from one contry to the next!

                  so a person who come to US from foreign and NATURALIZE as US citizens...will no longer be recognized as anything other than American.

                  and i was speaking specifically to the young lady who said she was told she was no longer a citizen of her county of birth

                    Well, that's not completely true either:

                    Rules against dual citizenship still apply to some extent -- at least in theory -- to people who wish to become US citizens via naturalization. The Supreme Court chose to leave in place the requirement that new citizens must renounce their old citizenship during US naturalization. <span style="font-weight: bold">However, in practice, the State Department is no longer doing anything in the vast majority of situations where a new citizen's &quot;old country&quot; refuses to recognize the US renunciation and continues to consider the person's original citizenship to be in effect.</span>

                    and furthermore, this is a public forum; anything you post here is open to public scrutiny....if you want to direct your statements to one particular person, I'd suggest you do so via private message.

                        If that was the case, we'd have a whole heap of stateless people.

                        However, you can't be an MP if you're a dual citizen. Unless you're a good MP in which case you can still be an MP if you promise to get rid of extra passports.
