Upon the directives of H.H. Sheikh Khalifa Bin Zayed Al Nahyan, President of the UAE, to review the situation of UAE nationals born abroad to foreign women, and under the follow-up of Lt. General His Highness Sheikh Saif Bin Zayed Al Nahyan, Deputy Prime Minister, Minister of Interior, the Special Committee for UAE nationals born abroad to foreign women carried on its tour in Asia, headed by Major General Nasser Al Awadi Al Menhali, Assistant Undersecretary for Naturalization, Residency and Ports, where it conducted interviews with a number of children born to Emirati fathers and foreign mothers in the Philippines.

Major General Al Menhali said that the committee visited the Philippines to examine the applications brought forward by a number of its citizens over there, where the necessary tests were carried out to promote the national identity of nationals’ children born abroad, and strengthen their integration in society.

He pointed out that the return of nationals’ children to the UAE reflects the UAE President’s attention to the country’s children wherever they were, in the UAE or abroad, to provide them with a decent life, reaffirming the country’s solicitude that national identity, customs and traditions are strengthened and integration in UAE society achieved.

Al Menhali praised the efforts of the UAE embassy in the Philippines to facilitate the committee’s tasks, by providing data and information and giving it the opportunity to meet with the children. The committee will be heading next to Pakistan as part of its Asian tour to complete its tasks.
