Iraqi nationality law
Iraqi nationality is transmitted by the parents.
As per the 2006 reforms, Iraq recognises dual nationality. Prior to then, Iraqi nationals who acquired another citizenship lost their Iraqi citizenship automatically. 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.
