97 Children Have Just Been Given Emirati Citizenship


This month will be pretty special for some part-Emirati families.

The UAE Ministry of Interior confirmed that 97 children, born to Emirati mothers and non-Emirati fathers, were finally naturalized at a celebration organised by the UAE’s General Administration for Citizenship.

This was done following a decree from UAE’s President His Highness Sheikh Khalifa bin Zayed bin Sultan Al-Nahyan.

According to reports on Emarat Al-Youm, the UAE Ministry of Interior said the 97 met all requirements for citizenship to be granted.

Congratulations to the families!
