Next steps after Issuance of Dual Citizenship Papers

Principal Applicant and Dependent Child*
*Dependent Child born to Filipino parent/s and became naturalized citizen of another country.
(Optional) Apply for Philippine passport.

As a dual citizen, it is not mandatory to apply for a Philippine passport.  You may use your foreign passport when travelling to the Philippines. You simply have to present your dual documents to the Philippine Immigration Officer as proof of Philippine citizenship, per the Bureau of Immigration’s Operation Order No. SBM-2014-045 dated 30 September 2014 which is in force and still in effect.  Incoming Filipinos may present a valid PHL passport, Identification Certificate or a Certificate of Re-acquisition / Retention of Philippine Citizenship to be admitted as Filipino citizens.

Individuals who have just retained/reacquired their Philippine citizenship and who wish to apply for a Philippine passport will need to make a separate application.

Requirements for application for a new passport may be found here: https://tokyo.philembassy.net/consular-section/services/passport/#nav-cat. To secure an appointment for passport application, visit www.passport.gov.ph.
