The proposal submitted by MP Khaled Al-Otaibi regarding exception of Gulf and Bedoun wives of Kuwaiti men is likely to be approved for inclusion in the new law on naturalization of Kuwaiti wives.

It stipulates extending the period for obtaining citizenship from 5 to 18 years, referring to the wives from these two groups as becoming part of the social fabric and enjoying Kuwaiti customs and traditions, reports Al-Rai daily.

The issue of naturalizing the wives of Kuwaitis has returned to the forefront of the parliamentary scene. The new government project, which extended the period of citizenship of a Kuwaiti citizen’s wife from 5 to 18 years from the date of marriage, takes seriousness and approval.

It was scheduled to be discussed on Sunday by the Parliament’s Interior and Defense Committee in the presence of the Minister of Interior Anas Al-Saleh.

This was before an announcement was released to declare that government departments would be suspended for three days in mourning over the passing away of the Sultan of Oman Qaboos bin Said (May God have mercy on him).

This is especially necessary since the previous session witnessed a parliamentary protest against the rising number of naturalized women.

The draft law referred to the Parliament by the Council of Ministers provides for the amendment of article 8 of the Amiri decree No. 15/1959 in the matter of the nationality law in terms of granting Kuwaiti citizenship to the wife of a Kuwaiti citizen after 18 years of marriage.
