    Unless they have a deteriorating disease, are too old, etc.

    Not exactly an easy question. What if you're a multimillionaire (and you no longer work) and you want to apply for citizenship somewhere? You're already mentioning several exceptions yourself too.

    Should citizenship be given to anyone who agrees to contribute to it's countries economy and well being ? i would have to say yes. But that would also mean giving up your own sovergnity  as a free man/woman on the land.

    that makes sense to me.  if you want to change citizenship you should work or bring enough money (or have someone who will take you in) so you will not be a burden on society.

    Unfortunately, it isn't quite like that in the real world, but it makes sense financially and morally

    Citizenship should be available as long as the country benefits from you staying in that country. For example people who work for charity are not generating revenue for a company but do something good for the country.

    Basically getting a certain citizenship should be simplified so that everybody can choose where he wants to live and then everybody is supposed to do something good for that particular country.
