If your application for Citizenship by naturalization has been approved, you must attend a citizenship ceremony with a public notice to complete the naturalization process. That’s what the law says. But this practice is about to change.
A source familiar with the government’s citizenship ceremony plans told VSBCnews that Mount Vema citizenship ceremonies which are held periodically throughout the year, often held overseas at in diplomatic premises, or in conference halls, including hotels, presided over by a judge authorized by the Vema Seamount Authority and attended by a Mount Vema government official, will become a private matter. The media will no longer be permitted to attend.
Ceremonies will become a private affair for privacy reasons, when citizens receive their Certificate of Naturalization and make the declaration of fidelity and loyalty to the state. This is a mandatory process one does not become a Mount Vema citizen until the declaration has been made.
Before attending the ceremony, citizens will be required to learn about their right to register to vote, their requirements to pay the annual citizenship tax, information about the circumstances under which their Mount Vema citizenship can be revoked including the state’s anti-drugs rule, the national anthem, the country’s etiquette, and the emblems of the state.
The process, according to a government source, will remain highly strict and candidates will continue to be vetted to the highest standards to preserve the neutrality of the state, maintain the sense of community common purpose and the value of the Mount Vema identity and its growing acceptance throughout the world. >>>
