Multiple NationalityEdit

As Iran almost never frees its citizens from their Iranian citizenship (see Article 989 Iran. Civil Code [3]), which is inherited through the father (or descent), there are many German-Iranian (multiple nationality). The still existing German-Iranian agreement of 1929 [4] regulates in no. II of the Final Protocol that government approval is required prior to the naturalization of nationals of the other State.
