Bahrain issues guidelines on dual nationality

(Manama) – The guidelines for applying for a permission to keep the dual nationality were announced. According to the Assistant Undersecretary for Nationality, Passports and Residence Affairs, Shaikh Ahmed bin Isa Al Khalifa, the initiatives by the Ministry of Interior are in line with the implementation of the relevant laws enabling the applicants to apply online on the GDNPR website.

“The step is in line with the laws on dual nationality and all applications will be sent to the Minister of Interior, who will decide the suitability of each applicant,” Shaikh Ahmed informed at a press conference.

“At present the applications for dual nationalities can be had in Arabic only while in near future they will be made available in English. Given the relevance of the dual nationality subject, English language applications will be helpful for the naturalised Bahrainis,” he said.

The naturalisation process and allowing dual nationality to naturalised citizens are a very important step, which speaks volumes of the Kingdom of Bahrain’s openness and commitment to serving the all segments of the society.

“The final say in this entire process is with the Minister of Interior’s office,” Shaikh Ahmed added.
