Living in The Philippines > RA 9225, Citizenship Retention and Re-acquisition

Dual Citizenship

(1/3) > >>

DDastardly:
Hey people, My name is Aaron i'm 27 years old, My mother is Pinay and my father is English, at some point in my life i would like to live permanently in the Philippines and have been thinking it can only be an advantage if i get British / Filipino dual citizenship. My question is whether or not i will be able to achieve this or is there certain requirements that must be considered. Any help on this subject would be fantastic! Please ask any question's if needed.

Thank you in advance
Aaron.

I am no expert but I believe it will matter what passport your mother held at the time of your birth, it appears from the below that if she was a Philippine citizen at the time of your birth and you can prove it, then you could apply for dual citizenship, the Philippine embassy for the area you currently live would tell you if you qualify, if you fit into the below and she still has her old passport proving she was a Philippine citizen at the time of your birth.

WHO ARE NATURAL BORN FILIPINOS ?
Those who are citizens of the Philippines from birth without having to perform any act to acquire or perfect their Philippine citizenship. These are persons:

Born after January 17, 1973 ,whose fathers or mothers are citizens of the Philippines at the time of their birth;
 Born before January 17, 1973 to a:
Filipino Father; or
Filipino Mother and that person elects Philippine citizenship upon reaching the age of majority; or

Thank you for the information, I do believe she was still a Philippine national at the time of my birth, I am wondering if there is a language requirement for dual citizenship, will i have to be able to speak fluently in tagalog?
