Jugo-slavia Government Aids Jews to Citizenship

(Jewish Telegraphic Agency)

The Ministry of the Interior has issued an order regularising the naturalization procedure in those districts which formerly belonged to Hungary.

The acquisition of citizenship under the new order is made dependent on the following conditions: Five years’ unbroken residence in Jugo-Slavia since 1918, good character, and the recommendation of the local authorities. Large numbers of Jews in these districts who are not yet Jugo-Slavian citizens are now able to acquire citizenship more easily than under the old regulations which involved much expense and difficulty.
