Dual citizenship reforms in Germany

In a decision that will end a decades-long ban, the German government intends to permit immigrants to hold dual citizenships.

Three changes sum up the new citizenship laws.

Instead of the current eight years, immigrants who are legally residing in Germany would be able to seek for citizenship after five years.

German citizenship is automatically granted to children born in Germany to at least one parent who has been a resident of the country legally for five years or longer.
