As we approach the 200th Anniversary of the Hellenic Revolution of 1821 next year many people in the diaspora are very interested (or have considered it) in seriously pursuing Hellenic Dual Citizenship. For some having been born in Greece, but been in the diaspora for many years, they may want to now obtain their passport, etc. or for their children for various reasons. For others it may be they want to obtain their dual citizenship as part of their birth right under the principle of jus sanquinis the nationality law of Hellas or Hellenic citizenship acquired by descent, or by other approved means. For many the process has been and can be daunting, complex, and very time consuming. As such EMBCA in association with AHEPA’s Hellenic Cultural Commission and because of the very strong interest around this subject is having the “Hellenic Dual Citizenship Initiative on the 200th Anniversary of the Hellenic Revolution” Panel Discussion to help demystify the process with experts in the field. The panelists will include Hellenic immigration attorneys, Hellenic government officials and others, to discuss the various issues and aspects involved in obtaining Hellenic Citizenship. This event is among the many that are planned by AHEPA’s Hellenic Commission, EMBCA, and others for the upcoming 200th Anniversary of the Hellenic Revolution of 1821 by EMBCA’s American Hellenic Revolution of 1821 Bicentennial Committee.
