The doors of Germany open to the Turks

An agreement was reached on the reform of the citizenship law in Germany. The coalition government, the Social Democratic Party (SPD), the Green Party (Grüne) and the Free Democratic Party (FDP) said they had agreed on changes to the law that would make dual citizenship easier.

According to the Süddeutsche Zeitung, with the help of a bill prepared by the German Ministry of the Interior, the government aims to significantly simplify naturalization procedures, thereby facilitating the integration of immigrants into the country.

Under the 49-page bill, immigrants who have lived in Germany for many years will be able to become citizens faster.


The current 8-year requirement for naturalization in Germany will be reduced to 5 years. For persons over 67 years of age, an interview is sufficient instead of a written examination as a precondition for naturalization.

A child of a foreigner who has lived in Germany and legally worked for 5 years will also be able to become a German citizen earlier. The nationality law, which is planned to be updated in Germany, is also closely linked to the Turks, who make up the largest foreign population in the country.
