Dual nationality is typically allowed in Egypt since 2004, as long as authorization is given by the government. Typically, if someone acquires dual nationality and does not have governmental permission, there is no automatic consequence; however, if the Cabinet of Egypt has rendered a decision on the case, the effected individual is legally denaturalized.
