Changes Expected for Georgia’s Law on Dual Citizenship from Spring 2018

(TBILISI)--Georgia’s Parliament Chair Irakli Kobakhidze announced last week that changes to the country’s current law on dual citizenship will change in the first half of 2018 and allow certain individuals the right to hold two passports.

The change meets the demands of Georgians living abroad, many of whom had lost their citizenship in their homeland after being giving a passport of the country where they currently reside.

At present, dual citizenship is granted very rarely via an executive order issued by the office of the president.
