Iraqi nationality is transmitted by paternity (father). However, this gives the right to Iraqi to transmit citizenship to their children and foreign wives.

The code[edit]

The first nationality law was passed in 1924, and on the 6 August that year, all people within the bounds of Iraqi jurisdiction automatically acquired Iraqi citizenship.[citation needed]

Dual citizenship[edit]

As per the 2006 reforms, Iraq recognises dual nationality. Prior to then, Iraqi nationals who acquired another citizenship lost their Iraqi citizenship automatically.[citation needed] Some country's nationality laws (among them Japan's) nonetheless require their nationals to choose between keeping that country's citizenship or keeping their Iraqi citizenship.


In 1963, 1975, 1980, 1990, 2006.[citation needed]
