If a person formally renunciates his or her citizenship via written documents filed with this country's Secretary of State or other stated process, he or she loses his or her citizenship in this country and unless that person has citizenship in another country, that person may be "stateless". This would affect a person to travel internationally and set up residence in another country. See section 349(a)(5) of the Immigration and Nationality Act.
