A similar situation also affected the children who applied for citizenship on the basis of the citizenship of the parents.
In cases where your passport or passports of your children did not pass the test and were found not reasonably issued, the passport is withdrawn. From a legal point of view, such a situation is serious, complex and has the only way to resolve it – through the courts in Chile.
In 2018, the Constitutional Court of Chile expressed its positive opinion on the recognition of citizenship by kinship, but if you turn to the practice of the court when considering such cases in cassation proceedings, the situation does not look so good. There are examples when the court agrees with the arguments of the claimant and overrules the decision on recognition of the passport as illegally issued. But unfortunately there are also opposite cases, because in the courts to prove their case is not so simple. After all, the court needs to clarify the following aspects: consistency of residence, recognition of citizenship by kinship and the validity of the withdrawal of a passport, because if there has been citizenship for many years, you cannot suddenly recognize it as illegally issued.
