Infant visa question
« on: February 12, 2008, 05:01:09 AM »
I,m a believer in preparing for the future, and just thought,... if, when the time comes, and I,m no longer here, would my wife be able to take our kid back to the Philippines and live there if she should wish to do so ? My wife has Indefinite leave to remain in UK, and kid was born here, so will be classed as a UK citizen. Do Philipina women need to go through all the visa proccesses that I read about on these posts to allow their \"foriegn\" kids to live permanantly in Philippines?
Just a though !

if you wife is a Philippine citizen then your children can become registered as Philippine citizens and hold Philippine Passport (as well as British passport).
We did this for our children before the dual nationality law came in.
This means they can own land in the Philippines, and inherit land.
It is a straight forward matter to register their birth and obtain a Philippine passport.
Contact the Philippine consulate at the Embassy.
All the forms and details are on their web site.
