The Egyptian law grants the foreigner wife of an Egyptian the right to acquire the Egyptian nationality while keeping her original nationality. You will have to submit a request stating the wish to acquire the Egyptian Nationality along with the husband’s consent. The Egyptian authorities have to verify the continuation of the marital relationship between the couple for two years before granting her the nationality.The Minister of the Interior is the only authority concerned with matters relating to nationality as proof, gain,change and recovery.

If the wife acquires the Egyptian nationality, she should not lose it at divorce unless she wants to recover her foreign nationality or marries a foreigner and enters into his nationality.

This law does not apply to a foreign spouse who is married to an Egyptian female. He is not entitled to apply for naturalization of Egyptian nationality, whatever his current nationality is.
