Hallo
My Sister gave birth in Germany and the child received citizenship by birth since she has stayed in Germany for 8 years .
She received a letter from Standesamt that if the child will not be independent at 21 years old then German Authority will take her citizenship back.
She was also asked to bring papers from her country of birth claiming the child has nothing to do with Rwanda.
1.Does it mean the citizenship is temporary if it will be taken back?
2.What does my sister country of Birth has to do with a child born and raised in Germany?

Hello @Pan123, your niece or nephew will keep its German citizenship after her 21st birthday, if she is raised in Germany, Problems with the citizenship arise only if a child goes to another country for a longer period, e.g. if he or she decides to live with the grandparents or to attend high in Rwanda. The case is not completely clear to me, so if you like, you can submit the letter via MBEON, which is a safe channel to convey confident information. The registry office doesn't interfere in citizenship matters, so I suppose the letter was sent from the immigration office? Please feel free to contact me again. My name is Christine, I#m working in Munich and I would be happy to answer your further questions.
