In a bid to eliminate discrimination and achieve equality within the framework of international human rights standards, the parliamentary committee for legal and legislation affairs has approved a proposal to amend Nationality Law No.15/1959 in a manner that allows non-Muslims to obtain Kuwaiti citizenship.

A committee member revealed the amendment is related to item No. 4 of Article 5 of Kuwait’s nationality law, which states the Kuwaiti citizenship may be granted by decree – upon the recommendation of the Minister of the Interior – to any person of full age who satisfies the required conditions … and that he must be an original Muslim by birth or converted to Islam according to prescribed rules and procedures, and at least 5 years must have elapsed since he embraced Islam before naturalization.

“Nationality, thus acquired, is by itself lost and the decree of naturalization rendered void at the beginning if the naturalized person expressly renounces Islam or behaves in a manner that clearly indicates his intention to abandon Islam. In such case, the citizenship of any dependent of the apostate is also rendered void,” the source explained.
