  1. Suriname - Migrant workers - Law, Act

    Nationality and Residence (Amendment) Law, 2014. - Legislation on-line

    Adoption: 2014-07 | SUR-2014-L-96934

    The Law makes various amendments to the Law on Nationality and Residence, 1975 in particular by removing discriminatory provisions concerning the right to obtain Surinamese nationality which in the 1975 Law differentiated between the rights of men and women to pass on their nationality. Under the new Law,
    - a child is now granted Surinamese nationality automatically if their father or mother is Surinamese at the time of their birth (article 3(a) as amended). The explanatory note to the Law states that this amendment ¿demonstrates the full equality of the man and woman (father and mother) before the law in the establishment of the nationality of the child at birth¿.
    - all differentiations between men and women with respect to the acquisition and loss of nationality have been removed, including from article 12.
    - Surinamese nationality will not be lost where this would lead to statelessness (new article 11(a)).
    - Article 3(c) of the Law retains the provision of the 1975 law which grants Surinamese nationality to any child born on the territory who would otherwise be stateless, and article 4(b) retains the provision which grants Surinamese nationality to foundlings or abandoned children found in the territory, whose parents are unknown.
