Team Rynkeby Faroe Islands becomes ‘Team Rynkeby Iles Faroes’, after all participants have been granted French citizenship in order to “go home” to Paris this summer.

On Thursday evening, the entire Faroese Team Rynkeby team gathered at the French consulate in Torshavn to take the French citizenship test.

After dialogue with the French Honorary Consul in the Faroe Islands, the team has decided to apply for temporary French citizenship – the so-called ‘nationalité provisoire en république française’.

This means that for a maximum period of five years, the participants formally change their nationality from Faroese to French.

This allows the team to circumvent any corona-related travel restrictions because the participants are formally allowed to “go home” to Paris.
