Obtain-Citizenship-in-Croatia.jpgThe citizenship in Croatia can be obtained through naturalization in complete agreement with the international and local laws. The Ministry of Interior of the Republic of Croatia oversees the citizenship procedure which is made at the consulate or embassy in Zagreb. The citizenship can be obtained by foreigners who have been living for at least 5 years in Croatia with a legal residence status. Foreign investors who fulfill the eligibility criteria can easily obtain the citizenship. As for the company registration in Croatia, we suggest you address to our Croatian specialists in company incorporation.

Necessary documents when applying for citizenship in Croatia

Besides the mandatory forms found at the consulate or embassy, foreigners must consider other several documents necessary for citizenship applications, such as:
a copy of the valid passport which contains information about the current nationality;
the birth certificate;
the residence permit for Croatia;
the marriage certificate, if it is the case;
a criminal record copy;
a biography which must provide your knowledge about Croatia, its culture, the language and the Latin script.
Please bear in mind that the authorities might ask for other types of documents, but these are usually announced on the official website of the ministries in charge. For support in company formation in Croatia and help offered to investors who want to obtain the Croatian citizenship, you may get in touch with our company formation agents in Croatia

Foreign investors and citizenship in Croatia

From the start, we mention that the Croatian citizenship offers the same legal rights for both nationals and foreigners. Investors from abroad who run their activities in Croatia can solicit the citizenship after five years of residence in this country and are granted the permanent residence if they are married to a Croatian citizen. Before obtaining the naturalization status in Croatia, foreigners can apply for permanent residence through the Croatia Residence Investor Programme, without having to consider minimum investments.
If you would like to know more about the citizenship in Croatia, and about the company incorporation in this insular state, please feel free to contact our team of advisors as soon as possible.
