Citizenship for spouse of Indian

Dear member,

 

Article 5(1)© of the Indian Citizenship Act of 1955 states that an individual can obtain Indian citizenship by registration if s/he is or has been married to a citizen of India and has been a resident of India for at least five years prior to making an application for registration. However, Article 9 of the Indian Constitution states that Indian citizenship is lost if a citizen acquires citizenship of a foreign country.

 

Response to Information Request IND18870.E of 2 November 1994 provides general information on the citizenship acquisition procedures that would apply to a foreign national married to an Indian national.

 

For information on the procedures and requirements for obtaining residence permits for foreign nationals who are married to Indian citizens, please refer to Response to Information Request IND17524.E of 6 June 1994. For information on their rights in India, please refer to Response to Information Request IND18870.E of 2 November 1994
