Children of Emirati women to foreigners will soon be granted Emirati citizenship, according to an announcement by The Federal Authority for Identity and Citizenship on Monday.
Thousands of children, precisely 3,254 sons and daughters of these Emirati women, will soon get their passports following the process of each paperwork.
YES to this!
This is incredible and speedy work- all thanks to the directives of HH Sheikh Khalifa bin Zayed Al Nahyan.
The process of applying for citizenship anywhere in the region takes a while, and so to be able to assist such a high number of people is quite impressive.
WAM confirmed that the procedures taken on by the Federal Authority were directives of the President of the UAE, His Highness Sheikh Khalifa bin Zayed Al Nahyan.
The achievement shows His Highness’ efforts in making sure those that need the granting of citizenships get it done on time, and that these children “are included in the UAE’s social fabric.”
