More Palestinian Refugees from Syria Granted Citizenship in Sweden, Netherlands

A number of Palestinians from Syria have been granted citizenship in Netherlands and Sweden.

The Dutch law stipulates that a Palestinian refugee from Syria be entitled to apply for citizenship rights after a three-year stay in the country and the acquisition of the Dutch language.

In Sweden, eligibility for citizenship is granted after a four-year stay in the kingdom. No other prerequisites have been set by Sweden for citizenship applications. Children of Palestinians from Syria who were born in Sweden and one of whose parents has got a permanent residence permit are systematically granted citizenship.

However, the time-span allocated for examining applications for visas or family reunification submitted by refugees from Syria is often estimated as being very long.

According to estimates by the Swedish Migration Office, more than 22,100 Palestinian refugees from Syria obtained Swedish citizenship by the end of 2018.

Activists, said over 7,000 Palestinian refugees from Syria have been granted citizenship in the Netherlands.

According to AGPS data, over 85,000 Palestinians from Syria have reached Europe, fleeing the war-stricken Syrian territories.
