What rights and privileges am I entitled to once I reacquire my  Philippine Citizenship?


Once you reacquire your Philippine citizenship, you will once again enjoy full civil, economic and political rights under existing Philippine laws.

Among these rights are:

1. the right to travel with a Philippine passport;
2. the right to own real property in the Philippines;
3. the right to engage in business and commerce as a Filipino; and
4. the right to practice one’s profession, provided that a license or permit to engage in such practice is obtained from the Professional Regulation Commission (PRC), or the Supreme Court in the case of lawyers.

You may also vote overseas in Philippine national elections (for President, Vice President, Senators and sectoral representatives) in accordance with the provisions of the Overseas Absentee Voting Act of 2003.
