Citizenship

Hello everybody,

I've got some questions regarding the GVA citezenship procedure:

1. Citizenship test is taking place before or after submitting the documents? What is the waiting time for this test?

2. Regarding the docs from the country of origin (mariage certificate, birth certificate) - originals are required? what does it mean "taken within 6 month before the application", is it for translation or it is required to take all originals?

Thank you for your replies.

Thank you for your replies.
It means that you need to apply for new birth certificates, marriage certificates etc., unless the ones you currently have were issued within the last 6 months. They must originals. Usually they must either be legalised or have an Apostille affixed (if that country is a signatory to the Apostille Convention).

Re: Citizenship

How long have you lived here?

For number 2, it means you need to get new copies of all the documents before you submit them, providing translations/apostillations where required. They can't be more than 6 months old when you submit them. Crazy, but true, don't ask me why.

Thanks a lot for your replies.

Should it be a copy or original? I'm not sure if it's feasible as if I come to my country and tell that I've lost the originals, it will be kind of a copy or a "proof" document. That's why I'm asking.

Re: Citizenship

It's a new original as far as I know. Is it not possible to get more from your country? In the UK you can simply order them online or from the local registry office. Certainly not a photocopy or anything like that.

Don't think so, but it least I'm clear how it should look like. Thanks a lot for your help.
