Naturalisations doubled to 4 865 in the first quarter of 2022; almost 40% of the newly naturalised are descendants of Nazi victims

In the first three months of 2022, Austrian citizenship was granted to 4 865 persons, including 1 925 persons residing abroad. This means that there were more than twice as many naturalisations as in the same quarter of the previous year (2 402 naturalisations). Compared to before the Corona pandemic (first quarter 2019: 2 764 naturalisations), there was also an increase of 76%. This rise is primarily due to naturalisations under §58c StbG. Under this legal title, descendants of victims of the Nazi regime have since September 2020 the option of naturalisation, without having to give up their previous citizenship.
