Dual Citizenship in the Philippines
Under the Citizenship Retention and Re-acquisition Act of 2003 (Republic Act No. 9225), natural-born Filipinos who lost their citizenship due to naturalization in a foreign country are given the privilege to retain or re-acquire their Filipino citizenship.
Once Filipino citizenship is re-acquired, individuals can enjoy full civil, economic, and political rights in the Philippines, as if they never lost their citizenship. However, please note that dual citizenship (Filipino and foreign citizenship) is not automatically granted upon obtaining foreign citizenship. Filipino nationals will have to follow a specified process to re-acquire their Philippine citizenship.
The processing for re-acquisition of Filipino citizenship typically takes around 3 to 4 months.
Eligibility for Dual Citizenship
Only applicants who had Filipino parent/s at the time of their birth are eligible for dual citizenship.
