MANILA, Philippines (The Adobo Chronicles, Manila Bureau) – Natural-born Filipinos who lost their Filipino citizenship through naturalization in a foreign country may re-acquire Philippine citizenship by virtue of Republic Act 9225. Re-acquiring Philippine citizenship under the said law does not require a person to renounce allegiance to any other country.
Dual citizens enjoy many benefits including the right to own real estate in the Philippines.
Now, in an unprecedented move never before seen in the international community, the Philippines is offering triple citizenship under Republic Act 9994.
In addition to being both a Filipino citizen and a citizen of the foreign country in which he or she has been naturalized, dual citizens can now enjoy the benefits of senior citizenship.
From free movies to discounts at restaurants, hotels, supermarkets and transportation venues, senior citizens can now enjoy the fruits of their hard work. They also enjoy priority status ing day-to-day activities.
No oath is necessary to be a triple citizen. One just needs to show proof of age — from 60 and above.
Imagine having a blue passport, a brown passport and a yellow passport! (Well, at least if your Philippine residence is in Quezon City.)
