Chapter Summary

The Palestinian Citizenship Order of 1925, as in many other states regulated the question of expatriation in four ways. The first was general and related to all Palestinian citizens who acquired another nationality by naturalization. The second concerned naturalized Palestinians. The third and fourth cases of expatriation dealt with married women and minor children, respectively. This chapter addresses these four forms of expatriation. The person who expatriates himself became a foreigner. However, according to Article 17 of the Citizenship Order, expatriation does not release such person from any obligation, duty, or liability in respect of any act done before he ceased to be a Palestinian citizen. Any Palestinian citizen would cease to be a Palestinian citizen if he, by his voluntary action abroad, acquired another nationality. Persons who became Palestinian citizens by naturalization could cease to be Palestinian in three cases of nationality revocation: fraud, absence, and disloyalty.
