Sa mga beterano at matatagal na sa Australia at naging AUstralian Citizen na. Ano ba ang pros and cons ng pagkuha ng dual citizenship (Philippine and Australian)? Would you advise this or ok na ung Australian Citizenship nalang?

    Gusto ko rin malaman ito. Nagtataka kasi ako sa madaming kababayans natin sa AU na mas piniling maging full AU citizen samantalang meron namang option ng dual citizenship. Baka meron nga talagang disadvantages kapag dual.

    Wait ko din mga sagot ng veterans. hehehe..

    this is a personal choice naman eh... :)

    aussies are visa free in pinas so they can be able to stay for a certain number of days...

    if you want to stay for a long time; using the philippine passport is certainly advantageous.

    just to add; cguro at this point, marami cguro sa atin nag-iisip na uy dapat dual citizen ako kasi proud to be pinoy, etc, etc...

    but in reality when you get there i believe, cguro tatamarin ka to process dual citizenship. others baka manghinayang on the fee to get a pinoy passport or for whatever reason...

    @TasBurrfoot Oo nga naman, especially considering yung hassle at bagal ng proseso ng pag-renew ng passport natin, malamang nga tatamarin na lang. Hehe :)

    Nabanggit lang sa pdos last time advantages daw ng dual citizenship is pag australian passport ka lang you can only stay daw for 21 days. Unlike ph passport you can stay whenever you want, you can vote and no need for special permit kapag gusto mo ulit mag work pnas. Mas marami din options for investments. Also you can have 3 passport daw, nz au and ph at the same time.

    ^True, useful lang ang Ph citizenship if:

    1. Magnenegosyo ka
    2. Bibili ng bahay at lupa, or papatayo ka ng building (bongga!)

    Kung condo lang gusto mo pwede kahit foreign passport, may mga quota naman sila usually.

    Yup foreigner can own up to 40% ng property. No wonder maraming koreans at ibang lahi sa pinas na may condo. For natural born pinoy na naging foreigner, pwede pa din Magmayari ng lupa hanggang 1000sq meter yata. Nabasa ko lang sa isang websites

    Sa mga Single pa na Australia Citizen na walang immediate family sa Australia o malayo sa relatives sa Australia maganda mag dual citizenship for your own security purposes. Kapag every year naman umuuwi na Single pa maganda din option mag dual citizenship. Cheers

    @TotoyOZresident - mate I am curious as you already have the Au passport, did you go to the hassle of applying for dual citizenship?

    I am just curious because amongst my Filoz friends ko dito, easily more than 3/4 of them did not bother getting dual.

    2. Bibili ng bahay at lupa, or papatayo ka ng building (bongga!)

    Kung condo lang gusto mo pwede kahit foreign passport, may mga quota naman sila usually.
    as far as i know you could still own a property kahit au citizen ka, pero it will be limited to how big you can buy, but for small lots yes you still could, i know this kasi nag research ako dati, ang restriction ang alam ko yung inde sa pinas pinanganak

    Sakto na yan 1,000 sq meter na residential lot. 200sq mter nga eh malaki na. Condo owning not a problem sa pinas as long as you have budget. So konti lang tlaga ang pros ng dual with pinas. Another problems na nbabasa ko sa dual citizenship is tax implications. As two countries can make a claims if they wanted depending on your status and its current laws/ regulations.

    How about retirement? Wala ba dito ang nag iisip bumalik ng Pilipinas to retire for good?

    Well, ako, 2 weeks pa lang naman sa Au. So what do I know diba? Pero in foresight, hindi ba most sa atin would still want to go back home at some point and die there? Or baka ako lang yun kasi bago pa ako dito. Although, my relatives who have lived in Canada or US for almost 40 years e nagpplano ngayon mag retire sa Pilipinas. So maybe, feelings change as time goes.
