Maltese nationality law is based primarily on the principles of Jus sanguinis, although prior to 1 August 1989 the principle of Jus soli was the basis of the law. Dual citizenship was severely restricted under Maltese law from independence in 1964 until 10 February 2000, when all restrictions were removed.
In 1946, Law No. 3, the first Indonesian nationality law was promulgated. It based nationality upon birth in the territory and required that a married woman have the same nationality as her husband. Wives were prohibited from individually obtaining nationality and derivative nationality for children was through their paternal relationship.
