Non-EU passport to EU passport (B student permit)

Hi all,

I know this question was probably asked before but I cannot find the right information.

I have a non-EU citizenship from a country in Balkans and there is a chance that I might get a Greek (EU) citizenship due to finishing my bachelors in Greece (duration of 3 years). The issue is that when I started my masters at UZH I had only the non-EU passport (B-permit on this passport) and now I am aware that if I get my Greek passport I must inform the Migration office.

Will that affect my permit, or will they be doing any verification or how the whole procedure will go?

Any information or previous experiences are really appreciated

They will just change your permit to an EU one. No worries!

On what basis will you become Greek after 3 years only? Are you married to a Greek and have a common child with them or are you responsible for a Greek child?

Based on the time there I spent during my studies, I believe they will make an exception of the usual 5 year period. It is all legal and valid, I was just worried that they would start validating and checking stuff and probably make up a reason or something to cause troubles.

But you don’t live there anymore? You live in Switzerland? I’m not saying your wrong, but I’d be super surprised if any country granted citizenship when you are no longer living there (apart from some exceptions). Unless you have big bucks to invest there?
