The increasing movement of people to a country other than the one where they were born has given special importance to the law of nationality. Citizenship is the link between a State and an individual. Each state defines by its own rules of law who and under which conditions acquires or loses its nationality. Acquiring citizenship entails obligations, but mainly leads to complete equity with nationals of the country where a person has his/her new residence.

A key issue is the acquisition of citizenship by refugees coming from outside the EU, who have been compelled to leave their country of origin. The acquisition of citizenship in Greece requires the fulfillment of the relevant conditions and compliance with the procedure.
