I am German and living in the UK with my British husband for around 15 years now. Could he apply for a German passport without ever having lived in Germany? As a background: We are looking to move to the EU (France) but that will likely only happen after Brexit. Whilst my German passport is handy, it would be easier if he could also remain a citizen of the EU.
There are several conditions that should be fulfilled for granting the German citizenship (§10 StAG). One of htem is that the applicant must have lived in Germany for at least eight years. And even fulfilling this condition alone would be not enough.
