FAQ: How do you become Romanian?

One thing you should keep in mind, is the whole point of this process is to prove that you are in fact a Romanian citizen from birth. You aren't becoming a Romanian citizen; Romanian law made you a Romanian citizen from birth by virtue of the fact you were born to a Romanian citizen parent. The fact that you were born outside Romania (and never even lived in Romania) makes no difference insofar as Romanian citizenship law considering you a Romanian citizen from birth. All you are doing is documenting and proving the fact that you were always considered a citizen under Romanian law.

I agree with you. I do. Try convincing the authorities otherwise. They're saying that my mom is no longer a citizen. They've told her to have her father go to the embassy and swear he never gave up citizenship. He died more than 10 years ago. The fact that I don't speak Romanian, nor have even stepped foot in the country isn't helping the matter. They, like most countries, are saying that a birth cert isn't proof of citizenship, but a passport is.
