Go directly to the spec which describes the case.
TS 3GPP 23.401, subclause EUTRAN Initial Attach.

Or here is a copy of it

Copy&Paste below:
For an Emergency Attach the UE shall set both the Attach Type and the Request Type to "Emergency" and the IMSI shall be included if the UE does not have a valid GUTI or a valid P-TMSI available. The IMEI shall be included when the UE has no IMSI, no valid GUTI and no valid P-TMSI.

I have seen many wireshark logs and found mainly two types of attach request, one is known as "EPS attach" and another one is known as "Combined attached". I want to know, how does UE nas layer decide on "attach type" in attach request ?
