Comments This act enters into force on 1 July 2001, when the Citizenship Act (1950:382) shall cease to apply. Consequent upon this, Section 13, paragraph 1 of the Act concerning the Acquisition and Loss of Swedish Citizenship (1924:130) shall also cease to apply. Until 1 July 2002, Section 7 of the 1950 Act shall be applied in cases concerning Swedish citizens who become citizens of another country bound by the provisions on reduction of cases of multiple nationality (Chapter I) in the1963 European Convention on Reduction of Cases of Multiple Nationality and Military Obligations in Cases of Multiple Nationality. This Act has since been amended by Swedish Citizenship Act (with amendments up to and including SFS 2006:222).
