In Germany, the coalition government took action for a comprehensive reform of the citizenship law. Under the amendment, the requirement to have resided in the country for 8 years, which is required to apply for German citizenship, will be reduced to 5 years.
SPECIAL SUCCESSFULS WILL BE CITIZED IN 3 YEARS
Immigrants who show “special success” economically and socially in adapting to Germany will be able to become naturalized in 3 years.
SIGNIFICANT CHANGE ABOUT DUAL CITIZENSHIP
The right to dual citizenship, which is included in the reform, is especially important for Turks in Germany. After that, the person who will acquire German citizenship will not be required to renounce the citizenship of the country they came from. Preparations for the amendment are expected to be completed before the end of the year.
HOW TO ACCESS TO GERMAN CITIZENSHIP?
Many criteria must be taken into account in the transition to German citizenship. Citizenship can be obtained by blood ties, and individuals whose parents are both foreign nationals can benefit from the right of citizenship within the same conditions. Although the right to citizenship is in the free will of every individual in Germany, there will be procedures to be followed for the country as well.
8 YEARS OF RESIDENCE
If your mother and father are citizens of the country, you are automatically entitled to German citizenship without being subjected to any additional processing. If everyone in your family is a foreign citizen, you need to perform different procedures. You and your family must have resided in the country for at least 8 years. You will be asked to provide documents to prove your German language proficiency and your ability to adapt to the country’s democratic and social order.
