Benefits of Comoros Citizenship


The Comoros Economic Citizenship Program is a legal naturalization program established in 2001 in accordance with the Constitution. The Program is regulated by the Law On Economic Citizenship as of 27 November 2008 and has been guaranteed by the federal government since 2008. The relevant legislation has been recently amended to reflect a clearer focus on citizenship by investment.

The local public authority responsible for processing all applications under the Program is the National Independent Committee (NIC).According to the law, citizenship is granted solely by decree of the President of the Republic. The official confirmation that you were granted citizenship is the Certificate of Naturalization and passport of Comoros Union.

However processing times may vary depending on each individual case and the government policy, nationality  of applicant, his residency. Also the term may depends on the quality of documents and information completeness.
