1 Illegitimate child/citizenship on Fri Oct 08, 2010 6:47 pm


Arresto Menor
Hi, magandang araw po.
I have a daughter who is 23yo & her father is 74yo japanese citizen. Hindi kami kasal kasi may family siyang iba sa japan pero noong nanganak ako he was there and he signed the birth certificate and ung ung affidavit of acknowledgement. My question if my daughter is eligible for japan citizenship. or if she can just file for dual citizenship? gusto niya kasi magtrabaho doon ng hindi gumagamit ng working visa at ayaw din naman niyang humingi ng tulong sa papa niya baka daw kasi magulo pa iyong family doon. Thank you po.

i'm not competent to answer your question because i am not knowledgeable in japanese citizenship law. what one of the posters here said is that she has to choose japanese nationality by age 22.

attyLLL is correct. I have a friend who is a Japanese national also holding a foreign nationality. According to him, when he turned 20, he was required to choose one sole citizenship (Japanese or foreign) within 2 years (ie, before the age of 22) as it is not allowed to have Japan Dual Citizenship.
