Who are natural-born Filipinos?

Generally, natural-born Filipinos are those with one or both parents who were Filipino at the time of their birth. For more specific cases, you may inquire directly with the Embassy.

If you are not a natural-born Filipino, i.e. if neither of your parents were Filipino when you were born, then you may not file for dual citizenship under Republic Act No. 9225.
