Covid-19: Moroccans among the 12,000 naturalized workers in France


More than 12,000 foreign workers, including Moroccans, have been naturalized in France since the start of the pandemic. These are workers who remained on the “front line” during the health crisis, the French interior ministry announced Thursday (September 9th).

From five years, the length of residence required before obtaining French nationality has been increased to two years. Since September 2020, the Ministry of the Interior has streamlined the procedure for acquiring nationality for foreign health professionals, security or maintenance officers, cashiers or home helpers mobilized during the health crisis.

Since this relief, 16,381 cases have been filed with the prefecture throughout France and 12,012 foreigners have become French, informs the office of the Minister for Citizenship at the Ministry of the Interior, Marlène Schiappa.

“These frontline workers have responded to the nation. It is normal for the nation to take a step towards them. I would like to welcome our new compatriots to French nationality and say thank you on behalf of the Republic: the country has also stood firm thanks to them, ”declared Marlène Schiappa.
