With regard to the attempt to restrict multiple citizenship, a child who acquired German citizenship iure soli and also possesses a foreign citizenship has to lodge a written declaration with the German authorities before reaching 23 years, stating whether she or he wants to retain the German or the foreign citizenship (GER 29). If the target person chooses in favour of the foreign citizenship, German citizenship is lost. If no declaration is made before the twenty-third birthday German citizenship is lost as well. Before the 21st birthday an application can be made to receive a permit of retention of the foreign citizenship next to German citizenship. This permission must be granted if the renunciation or loss of the foreign citizenship is impossible or unreasonable, or if the other citizenship is of a member state of the European Union or Switzerland (GER 12). This ground for loss potentially severely restricts the German ius soli provision: after having possessed German citizenship for her or his whole life, a person can lose German citizenship even in cases where the person involved continues to live in Germany (see for a further discussion De Groot and Vink 2010: 19).
