Determination of citizenship status

What is the determination of citizenship status?

The Determination of Citizenship Status for South Africa is the process of verifying an individual’s South African citizenship status. This procedure is crucial for those who may have questions about their citizenship due to various circumstances, such as being born to a South African parent but not registered in South Africa or being born in a previous part of South Africa (e.g., Namibia) while it was still part of South Africa.

We facilitate the Determination of Citizenship Status process by guiding you through the necessary steps and documentation required by the Department of Home Affairs. Our experts ensure that your application is prepared accurately and submitted efficiently for timely resolution.

Retention of South African citizenship

Before acquiring citizenship in another country, South African citizens must apply for the retention of their South African citizenship. This process is essential to avoid unintentional loss of South African citizenship when applying for foreign citizenship.

We ensure that your application for retention is processed smoothly to maintain your South African citizenship.

Renunciation of South African citizenship
