In Nepal, a citizenship certificate is required for everything, from getting a driving licence to getting a passport. There are more than four million people in Nepal who do not have citizenship papers.
So far, at least constitutionally if not in practice, a mother or father can give citizenship to their children. But the new constitution being drafted says that both parents have to be Nepalese citizens.
