Around 200,100 people were naturalized as German citizens in 2023, the highest number in a single year since the turn of the millennium, according to new government statistics released on Tuesday.

The figures come just one month before new relaxed rules on German citizenship and dual citizenship are due to come into force in Germany at the end of June. The total number of naturalizations increased by around 19% compared to 2022's total, a slightly smaller increase than the approximately 28% recorded in comparison to 2021.
