There is some misunderstanding here either the lawyers And agents are talking nonsense or Denzil has got it wrong. The idea behind this is to cut the number of applicants applying for nationality it's not about grandparents or parents being registered.

my agents has told me the same thing that the rule can be applied anytime and it's for the third generation only.

There's no issue to learn a language but according to the rule my process in 2nd generation and not 3rd! and also as u said earlier even if its 3rd generation and already in process then it wont be affected. it applies only for new applications which will enter the CRC

Hi Denzil,

My dad was born before 1961 and we registered his birth without registering my grandparents. The CRC only asked for my grandparents births and marriage certificates. With all this my dads birth was registered, and then marriage and now my process is ongoing. so will it affect with new rule?

New Rules
I think people have misunderstood.

This rule will most likely not affect Goans.
From what I understand, this is only for Grandchildren of Portuguese citizens.
Meaning, if a grandchild is directly applying for citizenship without first registering his parents or his parents can't be registered due to some problem. Or the parents don't want to be registered.

So if every single generation is registered it shouldn't be an issue.

Just make sure if you're third generation, you first register your parents.

You should know that when you apply as a child of Portuguese citizen born abroad, there is no way you can be refused. You don't have to prove additional links. Portuguese citizenship is your birthright.

With due respect Shayne n Denzil I am sharing information provided by my agent. You guys can add or correct any context provided by me if u feel it's incorrect or missing.


My case is Pre 1961.
There are two queues .
1 CRC ask for verification - currently handling June 2016
2 CRC don't ask for verification -Currently handling Feb 2017

Depending on the documents you have sumbitted they decide which queue they put your case.

Many a times agents don't care n just forward the documents with correction, It took me a year in total
to get my father in laws documents n make corrections.

My agent did not take my case till all documents matched n she guided me very well.

Hope this helps!!

It's still in the process of implementation so it can be applied anytime and we cannot challenge it the decision has already been done and the bill has passed. So it's a matter of time when...

When it gets implemented it will affect all 3rd generation new applicants. They will have to prove that they know the language and by showing ties to the country.
