Fair enough, but then you need to go trough the citizenship test (know the language), give up your current nationality (if possible), not having a criminal record, i.e. you need to show some suitability and sufficient connection to the Netherlands. Most countries (except maybe Ireland) have criteria you need to fulfill to regain your citizenship. Very few countries accept that you just send a mail whenever you feel like becoming a citizen again.

Hello openCV, you're in luck, I like helping people:

http://www.migrationsverket.se/info/499_en.html

Scroll down to the very bottom of the page, where it says Exceptions from period of residence requirement.

Seems quite straightforward! Good luck! Don't know if you can trust a website though, so try contacting a Swedish embassy?

When you are in a hole, stop digging. Somebody being a former Dutch citizen, born in the Netherlands to a Dutch parent demonstrates the connection and effectively exempts one from the citizenship test.

The citizenship test is a piece of right-wing politics aimed at immigrants from third world countries and is not applied to people called Janneke and Henk returning from Canada (even if they only speak English).

You really can just decide to become Dutch again when it suits you.

Yup I wrote a "declaration of citizenship request" to the Swedish Embassy yesterday, seeing as that seems to be the only way to be sure. I will post the results so in the future it might help someone else looking for the same information.

Fingers Crossed! =)

Just as a "semi-update". Apparently there is an very good chance that i did not "lose" my Swedish citizenship, because before 2001, there exists a special condition to legally have dual citizenship.

" Swedish citizens were still able to legally hold dual citizenship in certain circumstances, for example, if the other citizenship was acquired automatically at birth." from wikipedia therefore its not reliable so i looked deeper...

From http://www.migrationsverket.se/info/283_en.html

Dual citizenship
A child who acquires the Swedish citizenship of their mother or father at birth may receive dual citizenship. This applies in the following circumstances:

1) The child is born in a country where the law stipulates that all children born there automatically become citizens of that country.
2) The child receives the foreign mother's or father's citizenship at birth.

So my mother is Swedish, and father is Canadian, and since i was born in Sweden, i aquired Swedish Citizenship through birth, as the following applies:
"The child of a Swedish mother will always become a Swedish citizen."

And to meet the second requirement
"Every person born outside Canada after 15 February 1977, who has a Canadian parent at the time of birth, is automatically a Canadian citizen by descent.."

So in i guess a weeks time i will hear back from the Swedish embassy and hopefully confirm above "research"

Hello openCV,

Did you get the reply?
We have similar situation where child was born in Sweden to Sweden father and Russian mother, and then was moved to Russia before 2001.
Now she is 18 years old and we thought about sending "declaration of citizenship request" to Sweden consulate.
