Over 22,000 Palestinian Refugees from Syria Granted Swedish Citizenship

Palestinian activists in Sweden said more than 22,100 Palestinian refugees from Syria have obtained Swedish citizenship until the end of 2018.

Referring to studies and statistics conducted by the Swedish Migration Office, the activists said as many as 14,450 Palestinians from Syria were granted Swedish citizenship from 2015 to 2017. From January to October 2018, another 5,674 Palestinians from Syria received citizenship documents from the Swedish authorities.

Palestinian refugees from Syria who have stayed in Sweden for four years are eligible to apply for citizenship 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.
