How long does it take?

Today, Rae wrote in with a question regarding her Dual Citizenship application.

Here is Rae’s question:

How long does it take to process an application for re-acquisition of Philippine citizenship? I am leaving the country in 16 days, and I am trying to decide whether to apply here in the US or wait until I get to the Philippines.

Hello Rae,

Rae needs her dual citizenship quickly

Unfortunately, I really cannot answer your question, to be honest.  The amount of time it takes depends on the workload at the time at the place where you apply. I have heard of it being done the same day the application is submitted, and I have heard of it taking up to 3 or 4 months.  My advice to you would be to call the place where you intend to file the application and ask them how long it is currently taking.

Good luck to you.
