Involuntary loss of Cyprus citizenship

Immigration blog reminds that there are a few ways to lose Cyprus citizenship involuntarily (for those who got it via naturalization):

  • Citizenship was gained under fraud or false statements.
  • Person commits acts of disloyalty to the government of Cyprus.
  • Person, within five years of being naturalized, begins to live continually abroad without registering with the Cypriot Consul.

It’s good to keep in mind, just in case…

Citizenship update

I went to Nicosia today to check upon my Cyprus citizenship case. It appears that it arrived to the final destination only yesterday (“Coinsedence? I think not!”). The kind lady, to who I spoke, will have to prepare the final report for the ministry and the minister to base the final decision upon. (How many times did I use the word “final” here?) The report preparation should take less than a week. Then – who knows?

I managed to get her name and phone number to get in contact directly, so, hopefully, I won’t have to travel back and forth between Limassol and Nicosia.
