I am a US citizen but a naturally born Filipino. I will apply for a dual citizenship at the Philippine Consulate General in LA. I would just like to ask if it will revoke my US citizenship if I apply for a dual citizenship? What are the advantages and disadvantages? Thank you and God bless!!!
Repeat question. Already asked in slightly different format. Please read my previous answer. Your newly derived or acquired US citizenship will NOT be revoked because you apply for a Philippine passport at the Philippines consulate, the same way that my own US citizenship is not "revoked" each time I renew my Italian passport at the L.A. Consulate.
Applying for citizenship with the Philippines Consulate General will not cause your American citizenship to be revoked. The advantages and disadvantages for having dual citizenship will depend on why you want to have dual citizenship. Its best if you consult with an immigration attorney especially one who understands issues surrounding having dual or multiple citizenship.
