France: COVID-19 migrant workers eligible for accelerated naturalisation procedure
The French government wishes to recognise the commitment of key migrant workers during the pandemic
Migrant communities are home to some of the people most severely affected by COVID-19 in Europe. They are also home to many of the key workers who have played a crucial part in Europe's response to the pandemic.
In France, the government has announced that it wishes to recognise the commitment of key migrant workers who have constantly put their own health on the line in order to protect and support others throughout the pandemic. It plans to do so by facilitating and accelerating the processing of these individuals' applications for French citizenship. Proof of work completed during the pandemic will be required.
