To sum it up in somehow understandable way:
I would have gained the nationality very easily if one of the followings were true:
1- If I was born after the Independence Day of Cyprus 1960 (only one year between my birthday and the Independence Day)
2- if my father was Cypriot

Wouldn´t that be good enough for the OP? What´s the difference in practical terms between permanent residence and citizenship except that you can´t vote or be elected?

My case is:

I was born when Cyprus was a British colony and not an independent country
From female side
So therefore according to the law I am not eligible to acquire the citizenship as back then when I was born 1959 Cyprus was not independent country + I come from Cypriot mother not a Cypriot father


I don't believe that is the case.

If you were born in Cyprus then you are probably entitled to citizenship by law even if you were born pre 1960, otherwise there is potential for Statelessness.

At the end of the day, no one here will be able to help you because we don't really know the law well enough to answer your questions.

You should get in contact with the District Attorney in Cyprus. They are called Ebarho in Greek. They will be able to advise you better. I am sure your relatives in Cyprus will be able to help you too.

If you got major issues and hit a brick wall, you might want to consider calling that lawyer I gave you.

Hi Ashino,

Have you thought about contacting local newspapers about your story. Contacting an English language publication (since you mentioned you're not fluent in Greek) such as the Cyprus Mail may be a good option.

Thanks for providing me with the link I will save it and leave contacting the media as the last resort if talking to the district attorney and the lawyers was not fruitful

Ashino, there are endless of enemies of Cyprus that would suggest things to you to make Cyprus look bad. But all countries have immigration rules that are set up for various reasons. In your case, there are outdated rules that stem from when Britain kept records of males (for political reasons) and so it's easier to track Cypriot-father details pre-1960.

Remember, this is the country your children call home and the country that you want to settle down in problem free.

Follow the righteous path ...

:roll: That’s a stupid idea. The CM has a bad reputation and a very small foreign circulation.

Side with them and you’ll NEVER get citizenship!

It's interesting to see a Turk opt for war instead of the rule of law.

No, she is actually correct on this occasion. You're the idiot who can't even spell.
