We got a question from Marina today,
Here’s what Marina had to say:
My children and husband are natural born u.s citizen I would like to apply for them a dual citizen in the Philippines is that possible.
I am sorry, Marina, but in your husband’s case, he is not eligible for Philippine Dual Citizenship. The Philippine Dual Citizenship law applies only to people who used to be Philippine Citizens, but gave up their citizenship to become naturalized in another country. As for your daughter, if you were a Philippine Citizen on the day she was born, then all you need to do is file a report of birth abroad for her. It should be filed with the Philippine Embassy or Consulate that serves the area where she was born. Once that is filed, she will be recognized as a Philippine Citizen (and keep her US Citizenship), due to the fact that she was born to a Philippine Citizen mother.
Good luck to you.
