Hi Guys,
† † † †  matter of interest-are Europeans permitted to hold Philipine citizenship when married to a Filippina? What\'s involved in this and how do we go about it if it\'s possible?

As I understand it, even if you become a Philippine citizen you still cannot own land. That is for \'natural born Filipinos\'. There seems to be no good reason for a foreigner to take up Philippine citizenship. I bet someone will come up with a reason now† ;D

agh yeah you likely had a point...i just thought it might allow us to forego visas and red tape in the longer run going back and forward.. I\'ve plenty of time to worry about that..

The 13a visa is your best bet, most likely.† Less running around and no outbound trips necessary.†

I know this is an old topic and I was researching the subject of foreigners becoming a citizen of the Philippines when I ran across this post. Is this a fact that even though you are now a Philippine citizen, you still can\'t own land. Does anyone have a link to show this?

Thanks

No, you mis-read that. †That rule applies to those who are not \"natural born\" Filipinos. In other words, foreigners who become naturalized Philippine citizens.

According to the Philippine Constitution, only natural born Filipinos can own land, under normal situations such as we are speaking of here.
