My grandmother came to the United States from Germany in 1881/1882 at the age of 7. She became a citizen through her father (my great-grandfather). She married my grandfather in 1896 with a German citizen. Has she lost or retained her citizenship? She has never left the United States since her arrival in 1882. My grandfather never applied for U.S. citizenship and stayed in the U.S. as a German citizen. Thank you very much. On July 14, 1952, the Israeli parliament passed the Israeli Citizenship Law. [17] The Nationality Law naturalized all citizens of Mandatory Palestine, residents of Israel on July 15, 1952, and those legally residing in Israel between May 14, 1948 and July 14, 1952. The law further specified that naturalization was possible for immigrants who arrived before the creation of Israel, for immigrants who arrived after the granting of statehood, and for those who did not come to Israel as immigrants but have since expressed a desire to settle in Israel with restrictions. Applicants for naturalization must also meet the following requirements: be over 18 years of age, have lived in Israel for three of the last five years, have settled in Israel or intend to settle permanently in Israel, have knowledge of the Hebrew language and have renounced previous citizenship or have demonstrated the ability to renounce citizenship, after becoming Israeli citizens.

[17] Once naturalized, your children automatically receive citizenship, even if they were born abroad. If your child was born outside the United States, be sure to inform the U.S. Embassy or Consulate. Information about renouncing or losing your U.S. citizenship is also available. All applications for citizenship are approved by the President of Indonesia. The massive increase in population flows due to globalization and the sharp increase in the number of refugees after the First World War created many stateless people, people who were not citizens of a State. In rare cases, mass naturalization laws have been passed. Because naturalization laws were suitable for the relatively small number of people who had voluntarily moved from one country to another (expatriates), many Western democracies were unwilling to naturalize large numbers of people. These include the massive influx of stateless people that followed the massive denationalizations and expulsion of ethnic minorities from newly created nation-states in the first half of the 20th century, but also the mainly aristocratic Russians who had escaped the October Revolution of 1917 and the period of war communism, and then Spanish refugees. As Hannah Arendt pointed out, internment camps became the “only nation” of these stateless people, as they were often considered “undesirable” and stuck in an illegal situation where their country had expelled or stripped them of their nationality when they had not been naturalized and therefore lived in a judicial no-man`s land. Being a naturalized South African citizen is a privilege, not a right.

Even after meeting all the requirements and going through the naturalization process, the minister has the right to refuse citizenship. [29] Foreign spouses of South African citizens may apply for naturalization after two years of marriage, but may be refused by the Minister. The Minister may also grant citizenship to minors if their parents so request. [28] On May 9, 1918, Congress passed legislation (40 Stat. 542) that any alien who had been a member of the armed forces for 3 years or more could apply for naturalization without proof of the 5-year residency requirement and that any applicant who served in World War I was exempt from the requirement to make a declaration of intent. This Act consolidated the earlier Acts of 17 July 1862 (12 Stat. 597), which permitted the waiver of a declaration if the applicant had a favourable discharge from the army, and of 24 July 1894 (28 Stat. 124), which extended this provision to applicants who had been discharged from the Navy or Marines. My grandfather and grandmother were both born in Italy and married in the United States in 1915. My grandfather was naturalized in 1920. I can`t find any record of my grandmother`s citizenship.

My question is whether my grandmother would have become a citizen because of my grandfather`s petition. The naturalization fee is €55, except in French Guiana, where it is €27.50.
