Yet another question about citizenship.

Postby eacar » Fri Nov 03, 2017 10:07 am

Hello everyone. I know you get a lot of these questions but it's really really hard to find an answer out there.

My grandfather was born in Paphos, 1922.
He left the island around 1930-1932 because his family (my great grandfather) didnt want to get British citizenship. They immigrated to Turkey. He was deceased in 80s.

My father was born in Turkey in 1954. Married a Turkish woman, then me (1991) and my brother (1981) was born in Turkey.
My whole family has dual citizenship (Turkish and TRNC (I know, there is no such country :)).

We have the following documents;

- My grandfather's Turkish id, which indicates he was born in Baphos.
- Our heritage document from Turkish government, starting from my grandfather. It includes birthplace, date, etc.
- My grandfather's birth certificate from TRNC government.

I've researched a lot, and i think M72 may can apply to us.

It's really hard for me to go to Paphos and search for my granddad's citizenship documents but i will definitely do it if there is a possibility.

Me and my brother arent muslims so that makes it really hard for us to live in a country like Turkey. I'm a computer engineer, my brother is a country lead of a company. We're both MsC level educated people.

I'm researching a lot about this and i'm almost desperate. Please help us.

They immigrated to Turkey.

Your grandfather was respectable enough to go back to where he belonged when prompted to forfeit his Turkishness unlike the dishonorable cockroaches (calling themselves “Turkish Cypriots”) who happily signed and stayed behind only to destroy Cyprus some years later!

You should know that your grandfather was a respectable Turk so stay in your country, make him proud and quit looking for adventure where you don’t belong.

And not to mention that we don’t really want you here because we’re just too small to absorb foreigners without it having an impact on our culture.

Please respect us so that we may respect you.

I forgot to mention something important…

It doesn’t matter if you have 6 PhD’s because if you’re not one of us and don’t speak the local lingo then you don’t stand a chance getting a decent job here.

NB: We are as RACIST as they get and not afraid to show it, and you’d better believe it!

After the Lausanne agreement of 1924 , which ended the Turkish ''sovereignty '' over the Island the Muslim population was given the option of British citizenship or take Turkish citizenship and leave the Island.

It would seem from your post your great grandfather took the 2nd option.

These people were GIVEN land and properties in turkey.

So it seems your great grandpa , your grandpa , your father were quite happy with this agreement!

And now for some reason 3 generations down the line you suddenly want to become a Cypriot citizen!!

You say you have DUEL Citizenship Turk and trnc? Well as you said the trnc is not a recognised country ...so apart from in turkey you only have one recognised citizenship (Turkish)

I think you are looking for a back door entrance into an EU country

Of course i am looking for a back door entrance into an EU country. I've never denied it.
Wow guys. Just wow. I've never been a nationalist, and i wouldn't believe there are such kind of people exists in 2017. It makes me cringe to see this organized childish behavior.

By the way, racial slurs and accusations don't offend me. I'm not proud or ashamed of what my grandfathers did. I have enough successes of my own to be proud of. Seriously, how small your world is ?

Have fun in your island.

Sotos had the answer in 2009

There is no known procedure for direct inheritance based on your Grandparents: It only comes through parentage: Firstly at least one of your parents, your father, as your claim would based on his parentage, would have to try to claim Cypriot Citizenship, and only once they have it might you be able to claim.

Oh and you might have to do military service.

I wouldnt mind doing military service there. I have zero nationalism in me. I know i should get it from my father, but the problem is im not sure that if i can find any documents about my grandfather in Paphos. Do i have to go over there or there is some other way that i can check it ?

eacar, Turks are born nationalists!

I doubt very much you will get this citizenship you seek, since they will see straight through you and what you are after.

It always amazes me, when people want nothing to do with their parents and G.parents, but when they need them suddenly they are related.

Give it up, you will be wasting your time. If you are a Turk (ie no a TC and can prove it. Not by some illegal 'trnc' card) you will even need a visa to get into the country. trying then to get citizenship, they will laugh you all the way to Constantinople. :)
