Citizenship issues

The Constitution of the Kyrgyz Republic recognizes the institution of dual citizenship. The introduction of the institution of dual citizenship was a reflection of the migration processes taking place over the last decade in Kyrgyzstan. In this regard, the introduction of the institution of dual citizenship is, first of all, nothing more than the opportunity to adapt and improve the integration of the unclaimed labor force in Kyrgyzstan in the respective countries, as well as to provide Kyrgyzstanis with the opportunity to return to their historic homeland.

It should be noted that in accordance with the provisions of the Law of the Kyrgyz Republic on Citizenship of the Kyrgyz Republic, the Kyrgyz Republic recognizes other citizenship, provided that the Kyrgyz Republic has entered into force interstate agreements on foreign citizenship in accordance with the procedure established by law.

At this stage, the Kyrgyz Republic does not have bilateral agreements on dual citizenship.
