The acquisition, loss, deprivation and resumption of South African citizenship is regulated by the South African Citizenship Act 88 of 1995 and the Regulations issued in terms of the Act.

There are three main forms of acquisition of South African citizenship:

• Birth
• Descent
• Naturalisation

Citizenship by birth or descent are legal rights based on factual accounts pertaining to birth and parentage and this requires a series of factual supporting documentation. Citizenship by naturalization is not a legal right and thus needs to be carefully prepared to ensure that the legal requirements have been complied with.
