Új Szó (Slowakei) - Slovakia | 05/02/2015

Slovakian or not Slovakian, that is the question

As of February 1, Slovakians who have lost their citizenship by becoming citizens of other countries may now become naturalised once again. The Hungarian-language Slovakian daily Új Szó points out difficulties in the procedure: "In 2010 the first Fico government passed a law stipulating that those people who take on the citizenship of another country would lose their Slovakian citizenship. The law was a reaction to the simplified procedures for conferring Hungarian citizenship to ethnic Hungarians living in in other countries. 970 people are affected here. ... Those wanting to regain Slovakian citizenship must fulfil strict requirements: they must not only be domiciled abroad, but must also have a Slovakian residence permit. And it must be in Slovakia's interests to nationalise them."
