 Gassasinia 1979
(Last revised 1984)
According to the Gassasinian Constitution, all individuals born to at least one permanent resident parent, along stateless and orphaned children, are subject to Gassasinian citizenship. When a parent naturalises or registers are a Gassasinian citizen, that citizenship is passed on down to their children.

According to the Citizenship Act 1984, individuals who have spent at least half their childhood within Gassasinia, previously held but since renounced Gassasinian citizenship, and those who have lived within Gassasinia continuously for at least 30 years can seek citizenship through registration rather than through naturalisation, waiving their requirement to pay a fee, seek sponsors and fill a citizenship test.

For other conditions one must seek Gassasinian citizenship through naturalisation, meaning one must be able to list any five Gassasinian citizens as references who can sponsor their Gassasinian citizenship, complete a citizenship test and prove their ability to speak and write in Gassasinian and English language. Furthermore, they must fill at least one of the following criteria:

  • Have lived in Gassasinia continuously for at least ten years.
  • Are a stateless individual, but not because of renunciation of citizenship.
  • Have a child who is a citizen of Gassasinia.
  • Have been living in Gassasinia with a child for at least five years.
  • Married to a citizen of Gassasinia for at least two and a half years.

For individuals diagnosed with certain disabilities which reasonably affect one's ability to function socially, the needed amount of references is reduced to two. The cost of starting the naturalisation process is $7,500.
Gassasinian law recognises multiple citizenship and those who renounce their citizenship because their other citizenship does not allow multiple citizenship are entitled to the right to abode, diplomatic protection and the right to register as a Gassasinian citizen.
