No. His father (your grandfather) should have been a Cypriot citizen (assuming you still have the documents to prove it) to be eligible to apply and even then there's no guarantee he would be approved.


Your case most probably falls within the M121 or M126 criteria.

I have a perplexing question too...

My great grandfather’s cousin’s nephew is said to be an ancestor of Tutankhamun’s second uncle from his estranged mother’s side.

What are my chances of getting Egyptian citizenship and ultimately laying claim to pharaoh-hood? :?

so what you are saying is men can pass down nationality but women can't. The same is true with refugee status right. 43 years later they are still passing refugee status to only through the male line and in the eu too. i mean what the hell is the eu doing about sexism in the griik lands ghamoda.

Zero, because he is not your father.

You would need your fathers / mothers official documents to claim citizenship.

Does it only work on the fathers side?

Why not the mothers side, if you have the official documents to prove it.

By the time the RoC immigration office processes such an application, he’ll be dead.

Because most laws that changed after 1999 (harmonization with the EU) are not retroactive.

Fine, but the law at the time your grandfather was born did not permit it.
