The government proposes to reduce the review period for applications for Armenian citizenship. Deputy Chief of Police Ara Fidanyan stated this during Tuesday’s parliamentary debates on the bill on amendments and addenda to the law on Armenian citizenship.

According to him, the administration proposes fundamentally new rules for obtaining and terminating Armenian citizenship.

"The bill, in particular, envisages a change in the term for reviewing [Armenian] citizenship applications. Thus, it is proposed to set 90 working days instead of the current 6 months. The bill also proposes to introduce the possibility of obtaining the republic’s citizen's passport when obtaining citizenship at Armenia’s embassies and consulates in foreign countries," Fidanyan explained.
