Philippine Passports for Pinoys with Dual Citizenship

Passport for Dual Citizenship

In yesterday’s blog, we talked about the possibility of re-acquiring Filipino citizenship after becoming a naturalized citizen of another country. Such Pinoys have dual citizenship.

Today’s blog will focus on how a Filipino with dual citizenship can apply for his Philippine passport. Yes. They can have two passports – one from the country where they were naturalized and one from the Philippines.

Here’s how:

  1. Prepare the documentary requirements you will be needing; below is the list as published in www.passport.com.ph:
    • Duly accomplished passport application form
    • PSA Birth Certificate in Security Paper (SECPA) or
    • Certified True Copy (CTC) of Birth Certificate issued by the Local Civil Registrar (LCR) and duly authenticated by the PSA. Transcribed Birth Certificate from LCR is required when entries in PSA Birth Certificate are blurry or unreadable.
    • If born abroad, Report of Birth Duly Authenticated by PSA.
    • Valid picture IDs and supporting documents to prove identity.
    • Identification Certificate of Retention or Re-acquisition.
    • Oath of Allegiance
    • Order of Approval
  2. List of acceptable IDs (at least 1 of the following):
    • Government –issued picture IDs such as the following:
      • Digitized SSS ID
      • Driver’s License
      • GSIS E-card
      • PRC ID
      • IBP ID
      • OWWA ID
      • Digitized BIR ID

      • Unified Multi-Purpose ID (UMID)
    • Other acceptable picture IDs such as the following:

      • Alumni ID
      • Old Employment IDs

You may proceed to the DFA Aseana for your Philippine passport application. Their address is: ASEANA Business Park, Bradco Avenue corner Macapagal Boulevard, Paranaque City. Best to inform the guard of the building that you are applying for a Philippine passport as a dual citizen so they can direct you to the office where you may transact.

      You do not need an appointment as your case is different from regular passport application and renewal.

  2. 2 Questions:

    1. How about renewal of Philippine passports for dual citizens (i.e. already have a PH passport and also in possession of a US passport)? Is the process the same as ordinary Filipino citizens?

    2. I am currently using my US passport for international travel (to avoid visa applications) however my PH passport still gets stamped at NAIA to and from in order to credit me as a permanent resident (not tourist). Since the PH passport is secondary, does it still need to undergo renewal even if the US passport is the primary document being stamped?

    1. 1. Amount of passport is the same.
      2. Its up to you if you want to renew it. The purpose of your Phil. passport as you said is you can stay here in the Phil. for a longer period of time with out being an over staying tourist.

  3. Magkano po magagastos kung magpa dual citizen.u.s passport po anak q.at wla pang birth certificate s pinas.marianas Saipan u.s.a po xa pinangalingan.1996.kya nagkaroon po xa u.s passport.

  4. Sir, your site is very informative. I wish to know what are the benefits of having dual citizenship. Does it allow a ownership of real properties like ordinary Filipinos or just limited to some size? Likewise, what are the rights and responsibilities of having a dual citizenship. Thank you and regards.

    1. Master Citizen Sirs, I found the answers of my questions in some section of your blog site. Thank you.

  5. Hello MC

    Salamat sa reply. Dito na ako nakatira sa Sweden.
    So hindi pala automatic ang dual kahit both countries ay
    Ina allow eto.
    So need ko pa pumunta sa Philippine Embassy sa Oslo Norway para mag oathtaking? Eto ba yung Republic Act 9225? Akala ko kasi na dual na ako.

  6. Hello

    Yung mga kilala ko na naging Swedish citizen year 2014-2016 ay sinasabi nila magpapa Dual pa daw sila… which i googled and found out na both Sweden and Philippines allow dual citizenship.

    Ngayong taon na approbahan na ang s
    Swedish citizenship ko…sa pag kakaintindi ko hindi mawawala ang Philippine citizenship ko kahit may Swedish Citizenship na ako kasi Sweden allowed dual….pero bakit yung mga kilala ko sinasabi na hindi daw kami dual???…🤔🤔🤔
    Philippines allow dual so i have dual citizenship right???
    Tried to call and email Philippine embassy in Norway no answer at all

    Thank you

    1. H Sheryl,

      Kailangan niyo pong mag pa recognize sa Philippines (DFA) na gusto ninyong magpa dual citizenship. May process po yun and documents na kailangan ninyong i-accomplish. Kailangan i-recognize ng Philippines yung Swedish citizenship ninyo para maituring kayong dual citizen dito sa Pilipinas.

      1. Dito po ako pinanganak sa Pilipinas at hindi pa ako nakakarating ng America. Magrerenew po ako ng Philippine Passport ko soon kasi pa expired na this December 2017, pero last December 2016 Nareceive ko U.S Passport ko (American kasi tatay ko), So kailangan ko pa kaya mag apply as dual? or Mag apply nalang ako ng Philippine passport at i uncheck ko nalang yung tanong na “Are you a holder of a foreign passport?” Pag umalis kaya ako ng Pilipinas hindi ako magkakaproblema? Yung kapatid ko kasi Feb 2017 niya nareceive yung U.S Passport niya pero nag apply siya Philippine Passport eh nitong April lang at makukuha niya daw sa May, inuncheck niya lang daw yung tanong sa application form na kung may foreign passport siya. Hindi kaya kami magkakaproblema pag umalis ng bansa?? Thank you. Please reply.

      2. Pwede naman yung ginawa ng kapatid mo eh. Hwag mo na lang i check yung part na yun para wala ng complications. hahanapin lang naman yun dahil sa tatak ng immigration kung nagamit mo na eh.

      3. “hahanapin lang naman yun dahil sa tatak ng immigration kung nagamit mo na eh. ” – Sensiya na po po pero hindi ko po naintindihan yung part na yan. Ano po yan? thanks.

      4. Hinahanap lang naman yung passport kung galing ka na ng ibang bansa kasi may tatak ng arrival ang immigration doon. Since hinid mo pa naman na ibi byahe yung passport na yun so hindi pa yung kailngan.

  7. Mag Kano ang gagastusin pag kukuha Ng dual Kong sakali lang ang hirap kasi pag nag kuha da ganyan Ma dami chichi burichi ok Lang sana Kong isang building Lang ang pagkukuhanan Ng mga paper ang hirap kasi ubos na budget dipa makuha lahat Ng paper kasi da lalayo Ng Punta duon Punta dito yang ang laki husle

  8. I wanted to apply for a Philippine passport when I re-settled back here in the Philippines in late 2013. The problem is, I married here in 1993 and although have been divorced overseas after 6 years of marriage, the DFA still requires me to get a certificate of attendance from the Commission on Filipinos Overseas. I asked why when I’m already divorced and showed them my divorced papers, but they said they cannot attend to me unless I go to CFO and attend the seminar for couples and get the certificate. This seems unnecessary attending the seminar as does not apply to my situation anymore. Please advise on this, thank you.

      1. My question is ,,is it OK if I’m going to laminate my CFO certificate? Wait for your response thank you;)
