Lightbulb Czech Republic - Dual Citizenship

Consulate General of the Czech Republic in New York

New Czech nationality legislation will take effect on 1 January 2014.

The long title of the new act is “Act No. 186/2013 concerning the nationality of the Czech Republic and amending certain acts”; the short title is “Czech Nationality Act”.

The Czech Nationality Act replaces all previous nationality legislation (Act No. 40/1993 concerning the acquisition and loss of nationality of the Czech Republic as amended, and Act No. 193/1999 concerning the nationality of certain former Czechoslovak nationals as amended).

Czech nationals will be permitted to have dual and multiple nationality. In line with the trend prevailing in the EU, the Czech Republic will no longer insist on single nationality.
Loss of Czech nationality

Czech nationals will no longer automatically lose their Czech nationality upon obtaining foreign nationality. Starting from 1 January 2014, dual and multiple nationality will be permitted.

Czech nationals will be allowed to make a declaration renouncing their Czech nationality. The declaration will have to be approved by the competent Regional Office. There is no other way to take away nationality status from Czech nationals (Section 40).

Default Re: Czech Republic - Dual Citizenship

The same applies to Canadians since 1980. A Canadian can take citizenship of another country without his Canadian citizenship being revoked or surrendered.
