Dear @Denny28

Welcome back to the Wefugees Community and thank you for reaching out to us. 

I am actually not aware of any new regulations on naturalization in Germany. As far as I know, a child born in Germany will get the German citizenship if at least one parent is German or one parent has a permanent residence (“Niederlassungerlaubnis) in Germany since many years (I think it was minimum 8 years). 

But maybe one of our experts can add to that. 

All the best, 


Withholding citizenship from children
The German government's plans also have a direct impact on children of foreign nationals — even if they were born in Germany.
Until now, babies born in Germany to two non-German parents can typically become citizens if one of their parents has been living in the country for eight years.
Under the new rules, children would only be granted German citizenship if their parents prove their identity and nationality.
The Interior Ministry's draft law is currently being reviewed by the other ministries and must gain their approval before moving on to parliament.
