The 2006 Nationality Law amends previous versions and outlines the process of naturalization for non-Iraqi spouses and, among other things, allows dual citizenship. In particular, the Law echoes the Iraqi Constitution of 2005 that allows both Iraqi men and women to pass on their nationality to their children but newly limits the ability of Iraqi women married to a foreigner to confer nationality to children born outside the country.
