TBILISI, July 11 (Itar-Tass) - Georgia’s President Mikhail Saakashvili has taken a decision to “restore citizenship to natives of Georgia living abroad who lost it upon obtaining the passports of other countries,” the Presidential Press Secretary Manana Manjgaladze told reporters Thursday.
“According to the conclusions that the Justice Ministry has submitted to the Presidential Administration, the citizenship of more than 10,000 people - both ethnic Georgians and representatives of ethnic minorities residing in Georgia - has been cancelled recently, as /they received the citizenships of other countries,” Manjgaladze said.
“The President voices the readiness to restore citizenship to these people without impediments,” she said. To do this, the aspirants are welcome to file applications addressed to the President with the offices of the Georgian Justice Ministry /Houses of Justice, the Agency for the Development of State Services/, as well as Georgia’s diplomatic missions and consulates abroad.
Georgian legislation requires that a person seeking citizenship of a foreign country should cancel his or her Georgian passport as a first step.
Along with this, the President has the power to grant Georgian citizenship to the nationals of other countries who retain dual citizenship nonetheless.
