Egyptians Flock To Apply For ‘Liberland’ Citizenship

Egyptians Flock To Apply For ‘Liberland’ Citizenship

flag

Earlier this week, the ‘newest country in the world’ was established, sandwiched between Serbia and Croatia.

“Liberland”, an “independent sovereign state” established by Vit Jedlicka, a Czech Republican politician and the self-appointed President of the 7 square-kilometre nation, has promised to accept citizenship requests from all across the globe.

The new ‘country’ has thus-far received more than 20,000 applications for citizenship, with more than 100,000 expected by the end of the week, said Jedlicka.

“We have the busiest immigration office in the world,” said Jedlicka, who said only up to 5,000 people would be granted ‘citizenship’.

The new nation has taken Egypt by a storm, with Liberland trending on both Facebook and Twitter the day it was featured on numerous Egyptian newspapers. According to Liberland’s website, as long as applicants are not Nazis, have not been punished for criminal events and have respect for other people regardless of race, religion, orientation and more, then they may apply for citizenship.

In fact, Liberland had been so popular when it was announced, that according to Google, it was one of the most popular websites among readers of Egyptian Streets.

Nevertheless, concerned about Egyptians being ‘scammed’, Egypt’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs announced that there is no country called Liberland, and that no nation in the world has officially recognized Liberland.

Foreign Ministry spokesperson Badr Abdel-Atti told CBC that the project may result in Egyptians being scammed. More importantly, Egyptians may be providing sensitive information to the ‘country’, which can then lead to forgery of personal identification and other scams.

Despite the criticism, Liberland’s self-declared President maintains that he is serious about creating the new nation, where taxes will be optional and military conscription is non-existent.

    Hi!
    I’m Saeed Ahmad from Pakistan, I want to become a citizen of Liberland.

  • welt;woeht;owhpwehwht;woh

    Majority of Egyptians are muslims, and therefore will be ineligible for applying liberland citizenship. Muslims are extremists and they won’t tolerate your kind there. So, stay where you are.

    • JENNIE NO

      I think you sound like the extremist. Or, maybe you are a seer. How do you know who will be ineligible or not?

  • Mohamed

    I am mortified when I hear about Egypt’s current situation. Do you think all of that money coming to Egypt from the Arabs is going into certain military soldier’s pockets? Is Sisi another crooked president?

    • Commander_Chico

      We’ll find out in 30 years, when there’s another revolution throwing 90 year old President Sisi out of office after years of stagnation and oppression.

    First of all I am Egyptian 29 years old guy who is going to marry on 12th of July, 2015, I assure that I feel worried about my new family’s future in this awkward ‘Egypt’, so I applied for immigration to Quebec as well as preparing to apply to immigrate to Australia and perhaps work few years in one of the gulf countries as oil & gas engineer, all these plans to escape my stupid reality.

    Please all commenters you have to know how miserable is the life here and whatever country accepts Egyptian’s immigration, we will apply as happened before with Georgia .. it is now far from fixing up things, it is all about ruining our past memories for enjoying our prosperous future elsewhere.

    This territory was already claimed by the sovereign state of Paraduin on March 5. The illegal Liberland flag has been removed.

    • Nico Di Castello

      is this true? what is your source?

    • Tom W.

      Anyone can back-date a post on a blog. That claim is unsubstantiated.

      • Guido den Broeder

        Are you going to post this everywhere? The date has been recorded by both Google and Facebook.

  • Tom W.

    They should set up their own LIberland in the Hala’ib Triangle or Bir Tawil. Why not?

    • Minymina

      They can’t because Hala’ib Triangle is Egyptian territory.
      Better yet, why not actually help fix Egypt as opposed to starting a new nation?

      • Tom W.

        Good point, but the Egypt military is back in control. I doubt they would allow that. They should allow the creation of free enterprise zones, but with the military and their cronies in control of the economy as well, that would be difficult. I don’t blame Egyptians for wanting to look for more opportunity
