Emirati nationality law

Emirati nationality law governs citizenship eligibility in the United Arab Emirates (UAE).[1][2][3] The law is primarily jus sanguinis. Foreigners may be naturalized and granted citizenship, but the process is limited due to the declining share of the Emirati population and fears of national identity loss.[4] Gulf Cooperation Council citizens are allowed to live in the UAE without restriction and have the right of freedom of movement.[5]
