How long can i stay outside germany with German citizenship ?

10 posts in this topic

Hi,

 

What things to consider if I want to move back to a non-EU country for 5 years and come back to Germany? 

 

How long can a non-EU person stay outside Germany after he/she got German citizenship? 

 

Thank you,

My bold. After you get citizenship, you are German (and so not a non-EU person).

There are some circumstances where you can lose your German citizenship but living in another country is not one of them.

They can't take away your German citizenship just for living somewhere else.

Thank you pappnase. As I would be working for a non-EU employer in a non-EU country with German citizenship, No need to pay taxes or insurance or registering a house in Germany to retain my German citizenship?

your dutch anyway, so under FOM you can always just come to Germany, you would have to do something pretty bad to lose citizenship

 

Under EU rules, you have the right to move and work anywhere in the EU, and its not lost by living or working outside the EU, unlike the Brits who have just thrown all of that away

I'm getting more confused with each post. A non-EU Dutch national with German citizenship through naturalisation? I thought the NL didn't allow dual citizenship through naturalisation anyway?

Like in Germany, there are exceptions. For example, a great one is that you can take the nationality of your spouse (and a non-Dutch spouse can naturalise as Dutch) without giving up the other nationality. This makes huge sense, and something the Germans ought to take note of.

Are you suggesting that foreigners married to Germans should be allowed to keep their original citizenship, but all others foreigners should have to give up their original citizenship to become German?!?!?

 

That is even more ridiculous than the current rules.

Wow, how you got that out of what I said, I can never begin to understand.

 

I am CLEARLY talking about ONE of the exceptions to the requirement to give up your other nationalities that makes a lot of sense, as a transnational couple would benefit from having the nationality of both if they so choose (and of course, their children would subsequently also be dual/multiple nationals).

 

The current rules in that they are full of holes are indeed ridiculous. Multiple nationality for all would obviously be the most rational rule.

 

Have some coffee.

Taxation isn't linked to citizenship (unless you're US or Eritreian citizen) but to your residence status and the source of your income.
