Germany Plans to Ease Citizenship Rules to attract Foreign Workers

Become German Citizen in 5 Years! Germany face Shortage of Skilled Workforce!! Apply now!!!

Germany wants to ease their citizens rules to help immigrants become part of the country and also help the economy, which needs more skilled workers.

With the new rules that were agreed upon on Wednesday by the cabinet, People can apply to become citizens after living in the country for five years. If they do special things to integrate well, they can apply after three years. This is shorter than the old rule of eight or six years.

Additionally, the new rules will allow people to have dual citizenships at the same time. This is important because Germany needs skilled workers and this change will help bring more skilled workforce, especially since Germany has the biggest economy in Europe. This change will also help fill job gaps in different areas where there aren’t enough workers.

The Government states that many people who live in Germany are not citizens of the country. Over 12 million out of 84.4 million people don’t have German citizenship. Around 5.3 million of these people have been living in Germany for at least ten years. The Government thinks that not many people become citizens compared to other European countries.

Last year, about 168,500 people became German citizens. This was the highest number since 2002. Germany is making these changes to deal with its population and economic issues. It also wants to be more open and diverse as a country.
