I am confused about the Malaysian Constitution which says something like 'by virtue of marriage, you can have another citizenship?  Can someone help clarify?  Many thanks and kind regards.

by virtue of marriage, you can have another citizenship?

Can you quote that section of the Constitutional Law.

Malaysia do not allow Dual Citizenship. Period.

Federal Constitution

28A. Deprivation of citizenship of persons becoming citizens on Malaysia Day
(3) Where a woman is under this Article to be treated as a citizen by registration, and the status in consequence of which she is to be so treated was acquired by her by virtue of marriage, then for purposes of Clause (4) of Article 24 and Clause (2) of Article 26 she shall be treated as a citizen by registration under Clause (1) of Article 15.

Malaysia do not allow Dual Citizenship. Period.

If  a woman holds citizenship of another country, she can apply for Malaysian citizenship after marriage.
To be eligible, she must surrender the citizenship of the other country.

Section 28A refers to Citizenship on MALAYSIA DAY. Now is 60 years later..!!
Still have to apply.
