One of the follow-up questions asked during the Q&A was about using two passports for ID verification if you have more than one passport. The answer is, yes, dual citizens will be able to use their US passport and their non-US passport - they would select Passport and Foreign Passport as their two primary document types. They may, however, need to still upload a secondary document for proof of address.
