Dual Citizenship Law in Germany

German Citizenship Lawyers

Increasing numbers of foreigners who have settled permanently in Germany would like to express their affiliation to Germany without renouncing their original nationality. And vice versa: many Germans who live abroad permanently would like to take on the nationality of their new home country without cutting ties with their home country. With the proposed reform of the German citizenship law, multiple citizenship will no longer be an exception but will be generally permitted. This means the need to apply to retain German citizenship (retention permit, “Beibehaltungsgenehmigung”) and the so-called “option regulation” will no longer apply.

In this context, the German law firm Schlun & Elseven Rechtsanwälte offers skilled and committed legal advice.
