hi sherry. what did your daughter have to do to formalize her japanese citizenship and when did she turn 22?

Philippine dual citizenship law allows retention of filipino citizenship even after acquiring another citizenship. to be sure, what year was she born, and is at least one of her parents a filipino? does she have a Philippine birth certificate and/or passport?

Philippine law is clear. She will retain her Philippine citizenship even if she chooses to be Japanese. Her birth certificate is evidence of her Philippine citizenship. The medical school and PRC should recognize that she is a Filipina.

As for Japanese law vis a vis her retention of Filipino citizenship, I'm not competent to comment on this matter.
