Reading this question about Plutarch Heavensbee got me thinking about permitted citizenship.

Are citizens of other districts allowed to permanently move to, or become citizens of the Capitol?

My gut says, "No." The citizens of the other districts are being punished, so it makes little sense to allow them a true, legal escape from their punishments. Even victors are only given new homes in their own districts, keeping them there.


Mockingjay makes clear in Finnick's revelations about Snow that Finnick, at least (and presumably other Victors, too, for Snow to offer out for sexual favours) certainly lives in the Capitol, but I don't recall any mention of whether he has or owns a permanent home there; presumably he has a house in District 4's Victor's Village but it may have been seldom used if at all.
