German Passport

Postby Randal » Sat Nov 19, 2016 3:16 am

My grandmother has been married to a german citizen for over 40 years and lived in germany for 7 years. Her husband died a couple of years ago and she recieves a german pension. She also owned property in germany, wich she has recently sold. My grandmother has permanent residence in germany but she lives in South Africa.My grandmother wants to help my sister and I get german passports so we can leave South Africa.I would like to go to the UK. Do we qualify or would we qualify if she gets a german passport?

Dear Angelique,

I am sorry, but you and your sister do not qualify for German citizenship based on ancestry.

One of your parents(not grand-parents) would have had to have German citizenship at the time of your birth. So even if your parents were to become German citizens now, it would be too late.

Please also see my FAQs about German citizenship: http://www.moser-law.com/faq.htm#citizenship
