Sylvi Listhaug of the Progress Party (FRP) also wants to make it more difficult for children of ISIS members to obtain Norwegian citizenship. Listhaug is the head of FRP’s immigrant committee.
The immigration committee will present its work on Sunday, the day after the FRP’s national meeting.
According to newspaper VG, up to ten years of residence and very strict language requirements are among the committee’s proposals.
“It is not a requirement that one must adapt to Norwegian society to become a Norwegian citizen (today). That must be tightened sharply,” Listhaug said.
C1 level Norwegian, eight years of temporary residence, value test…
Among the proposals, there is also a request that children born abroad by a Norwegian mother or father must have a permanent connection and contact with the biological parent who holds Norwegian citizenship.
Other requirements include eight years of temporary residence before you can get permanent residence, requirements for impeccable conduct, language proficiency at a minimum C1 level, passing a test of Norwegian and basic universal values, an oath of allegiance, and demands for self-sufficiency in the last five years (and not having received social assistance).
