Last friday, government has submitted a bill in parliament to allow dual citizenships for the people of Norway and outside norway who are willing to apply for Norway’s citizenship.
“As we allow double citizenship, we are ensuring that Norwegian law follows developments in a more globalised world, with more and more connections to more countries,” said Jan Tore Sanner, Minister of Knowledge and Integration.
This could be a sigh of relief for people who are native of Norway and who have settled in different countries seeking to retain their citizenship. Most of the illegal immigrants and suspected people could be easily traced out if the dual citizenship bill is passed.
This bill will be debated and voted by the people of norway and members of parliament in autumn.
