1 Recognition as a Filipino Citizen on Thu Sep 09, 2010 1:29 pm

I gave birth t my daughter in the USA almost 15 yrs ago and we brought her back here in the Phil. before she turned a year old. My husband and I are both Filipino citizen and our daughter is carrying an American passport. We failed to register her in our Philippine Consulate in California. How can my daughter be recognized as a Filipino citizen? Can we travel abroad with my daughter? I'm planning to take her back to the USA. A friend of a friend with the same situation was stopped at the airport and asked to pay a huge amount telling her that her son who was born in Guam was an overstaying alien. Is that legal? Can I just late register the birth of my daughter so she can have an NSO birth certificate? Hope you can advice me. Thanks

i think late registration is your best remedy. aside from getting a philippine birth certificate, you can also get her a philippine passport. it is her entitlement as a dual citizen.

We're planning on going on a tour in Singapore at the end of the year, will she be stopped at the airport from leaving?

continuation of my earlier reply... will my daughter be stopped at the airport if she still uses her US passport when we leave for Singapore for a tour?

I cannot predict what the BI will actually do, but if a person came up with a foreign passport and without a visa, then the presumption may be that person is an overstaying alien.
