When a Priest is Ordained, Does He Become a Citizen of the Vatican?


When a priest is ordained, does he become a citizen of the Vatican?


No. He might eventually become a citizen of the Vatican at some point (e.g., if he works in the Vatican for an extended period), but he does not automatically obtain Vatican citizenship upon ordination.
