Today we got a comment and question from Mary.
Here is what Mary had to say:
hi! bob. i want to know if you have any idea on how to apply for resident visa for my 2 years old daughter, me and my husband is living here at indonesia as i am a former filipino citezen and now became a indonesian citizen coz i have to follow my husband. I want to left my daughter in my mum as we are too busy at work. My first child is in the philippines and he is filipino citizen coz that time, me and my husband is still not yet married then later on we married here at indonesia and have my 2nd child daughter here at indonesia. Hope that you could help me to have some some info on how to work her resident visa there at philippines.
Thank you and God bless!
And this is Bob’s response to Mary:
Hi mary- My recommendation would be for you to go to the Philippine embassy or consulate nearest you, and apply to become a dual citizenship. You can keep your Indonesian citizenship, and also re-acquire your Philippine citizenship. When you re-acquire your Philippine citizenship, any kids you have will also become dual citizenship. Once you accomplish this, you won’t have to worry about a resident visa.
