This study deals with the special and general requirements for the acquisition of a foreign woman married to an Emirati citizen in accordance with the amendments to the Nationality Law of 2017. The study is divided into two sections: The first devoted to the special requirements for obtaining the UAE nationality, and the second to the general requirements for acquisition and loss of nationality.

The study ended with many results, the most important of which are: The wording of the texts on the subject of the study is inaccurate and needs to be reviewed, these provisions did not include some cases that might be in practice, and it did not include some of the necessary conditions for the nationality of a foreign wife. The study concluded with several recommendations, drafting legal texts related to the subject, re-wording the concerned text and explaining the reasons for each proposed re-wording.
