Kathmandu, October 17

Prime Minister Pushpa Kamal Dahal distributed the first citizenship to Non-Resident Nepalis (NRNs) on Tuesday.

Dahal handed over the NRN citizenship to Kul Acharya and Badri KC of the NRNA International Coordination Council in the Prime Minister’s Residence in Baluwatar.

Nepali non-residents (NRNs) are now eligible for citizenship following the government’s amendment to the Citizenship Act, which has opened the doors for them.

Individuals with NRN citizenship will not be permitted to engage in politics, hold governmental positions, or exercise voting rights. However, they can conduct business and own property in Nepal.

Furthermore, the law includes a provision for citizenship revocation in cases where activities are found to be contrary to the independence, sovereignty, geographical integrity, or national interest of Nepal.

Non-resident Nepalis must provide evidence demonstrating that either the applicant, parents, grandparents, or great-grandparents held Nepali citizenship to acquire Nepali citizenship. For those who have previously held Nepali citizenship, documentation confirming its renunciation, along with proof of citizenship in a foreign country, will be necessary.

Additionally, a commitment to adhere to the Constitution and laws of Nepal is obligatory, and there exists a legal provision for taking an oath.
