Hi guys, I would like to ask if it is really necessary to do the report of birth of my son in the philippine consulate?
I will also do the report of marriage, can I send it together with my son's report of birth in the same envelope or do I need to separate?


Thanks so much!

It is a good idea to do a "Report of Birth" for the child, as it may open doors for him in the future to claim rights of a Filipino citizen. For children born of mixed nationality parents, I've seen this establishment of nationality to be useful, or of absolutely no benefit, depending on the child. I know such children, now young adults, who have gone back to the Philippine to go to school or to conduct business, and having Philippines citizenship has been a benefit to them. I haven't done a Report of Birth for my boy, now 18 years old, and don't see to be of any particular need or advantage to him.

It's really not much bother, and it's for a possible benefit to your child, not you.

Having more than one citizenship can never hurt and might give them a leg up down the road in life or business, so I would say best to report it.

I would guess they both can be done at once and do not see why not, but I usually call the local Philippine embassy whenever we have done things in the past, such as to what we needed to send to have my wife's passport changed to her married name.

People nowadays are lucky, back when we did it if I remember correctly I had to also supply a copy of our US tax return and my wife used to have to file a Philippine tax return yearly and give them a copy of our US tax return each time, boy I am glad that is no longer necessary for many years now.

Retired, happily married since 94 & live part time in Cebu City and the rest of the time in Florida, USA.

Thanks a lot Sir Ray and Mr. Lee!
I will do the report of birth then it's up to him to decide when he grows up whether to study/stay/ buy/invest in the Philippines.
God bless us all!

Exactly. Also get him both passports once that is done (both U.S. and Philippines). You never know when it will be useful, and better to have and not need than to need and not have.

To add to Mark's rcommendation ("get him both passports..."), you simply don't know how useful his proof of Philippines citizenship will be later on. I know several Fil-Am families whose children, born here, later went to the Philippines, from teenage years through adulthood, for a variety of unexpected reasons:

1. Child gets into trouble during teenage years and parents send him to Philippines to be away from bad influences for a couple of years;
2. Parents send child to school in Philippines to take advantage of cheaper school costs or to get nursing basics (that's another issue, and wouldn't be my recommendation). But to spend a year or two or more in school in the Philippines is a great way for the child to become acquainted with his parents' country and culture;
3. Child later decides to buy a condo or get involved in business activities in the Philippines.
