  1. Good day,   Are there any South Africans who have gained German citizenship? I've been scouring the forum for months now, looking for some specific information:   In the requirements to get German citizenship, it clearly states that the applicant needs to prove that they have renounced their citizenship (if possible) In the requirements to renounce South African citizenship, it clearly states that the applicant needs to prove that they already have a new citizenship before being able to formally renounce their SA citizenship. (Not allowed to be stateless)   Seems like a bit of a chicken or the egg situation.   South Africans do automatically lose citizenship if no application was made to keep citizenship, but if Germany requires this proof before new citizenship can be given, then I am a little lost.   If there's any South Africans there who have solved this riddle, or anyone who have a similiar process to renounce citizenship, assistance (or fancy guesswork) would be greatly appreciated.   Have a nice day!
