Double citizenship is not an option
ONE of the problems of double citizenship came this weekend when folks told The Independent that the Citizenship Bureau employees told the foreigners that they had to give up their former citizenship in order to obtain Vanuatu citizenship. There is a single fact that the Treaty was amended a few years ago to allow double citizenship - from 2014.
Because of whatever reasons, the information that came from this position was totally wrong, and the only amendment that came to the Bill was the costs of becoming a Vanuatu national, which, notably, are being slashed. Ralph Regenvanu insisted that double nationality was admissible after the changes made some while ago.
On Friday, he said to The Independent that he would look into why this misinformation is being spread. There was a spelling mistake in today's issue of The Independent in which Mr Regenvanu said that you could not have double nationality, although he should say that you could now have double nationality.
Mr. Regenvanu and the general public are apologized to The Independent for the editor's mistake and any unintentional disorientation he has created. It will also examine why this agency either lies or ignores the changes to the constitution after a few years.
