President Abdel-Fattah El-Sisi has ratified amendments to the Egyptian Nationality Law of 1975, allowing foreign minors born in Egypt to either a man or a woman born in the country or with an Egyptian origin to acquire citizenship

The amendments, approved by the House of Representatives, were published in the official gazette on Wednesday.

The amendments allow foreign adults born in Egypt to either a father or mother of Egyptian origins to acquire Egyptian citizenship after establishing regular residence there.

They also allow foreign minors born in Egypt to either a foreign man or a foreign woman born in Egypt and hailed from an Arab-speaking or Muslim country to acquire Egyptian citizenship.
