Naturalisation and citizenship in Senegal

Hello everyone,

What are the requirements for acquiring citizenship in Senegal? For example, length of residence, language requirements, employment etc..

What formalities are involved in the process?

What is the policy on dual-citizenship in Senegal? Do you have to give up your former nationality?

What are the advantages and benefits of acquiring Senegalese citizenship, in your opinion?

Thank you for sharing your experience.


Trying to obtain citizenship in Senegal is very hard it might take about two to five months depends on if you are connected to someone who knows the process and also very honest because it can cost a lot of money because of corruption it cost me over 600.000 cfa if not more.
