|Iraqi Citizenship Act|
|Parliament of Iraq|
|Enacted by||Government of Iraq|
|Status: Current legislation|
Iraqi nationality is transmitted by one's parents.
The first nationality law was passed in 1924, and that year, on 6 August, all people within the bounds of Iraqi jurisdiction automatically acquired Iraqi citizenship. According to Zainab Saleh, "The 1924 Iraqi Nationality Law and its amendments bring to light the haunted origins of Arab nationalism" by defining Iraqis of Persian descent as second-class citizens.
Iraq recognizes dual nationality.
