My father was a French citizen while Djibouti was still colonized by France. My father’s passport was expired on 1978 and it was not renewed and canceled. He then used the Djibouti passport to move to the Middle-east where my siblings and I were born. My question is, can I apply for the French citizenship through him? Sadly my father passed away, so I don’t know whether he had the right to claim it or not.
