Over 850,000 people granted Hungarian citizenship since 2010

Budapest, July 8 (MTI) – More than 850,000 people have been granted Hungarian citizenship since the introduction of a fast-track procedure six years ago, Deputy Prime Minister Zsolt Semjén said in a summer camp on Friday.

A total of 780,000 people will have their oaths of citizenship taken by the next week, Semjén said in the camp organised by the Christian Democratic Youth Federation in Kisvárda, in northeastern Hungary.

He said that by the end of the current government term in 2018 there will be one million new Hungarian citizens which was a goal set by the government when introducing the scheme.

    Perhaps as a public service you could outline just how someone overseas can apply for citizenship?
