    All good news then! congrats in advance!

    Your wife might want to consider dual citizenship in which case she will need to visit the Philippine embassy for a day to swear in and get a new Philipiine passport (if required).

    Hi Lordna, for dual citizenship and new passport what exactly are the required documents? because I've heard that quite a number of people have had to attend the Philippine Embassy more than once due to being given wrong information by the Embassy and for us it's 150 miles each way, we would be grateful for accurate information from one who has been successful recently

    Wow, how time flies.
    Congratulations to you both. You've almost completed that immigration journey.

    Yes I do agree with Lordna in that consideration of following the reaquisition of Philippine Citizenship might be a benefit.
    It's for you both to decide and to research properly before making the decision.

    I say that because if all papers and documents are strictly in order of ALL regulations then it's pretty straight forward.
    Stuff like having a different name on the UK naturalisation/pssport to that on the Philippine passport can become a real problem. Do check.

    Again....many congrats.

    It would be a couple of years ago at least when my wife and step daughter got dual citizenship and new passports so things may have changed since. I do remember getting to the embassy early and we took all the identification documents we had with us. We didn't finish there until after 4pm having got there about 11:00am. I seem to remember taking loose change for the photocopier, plenty of cash, a pen and pre paid special delivery envelopes so you can get the new passports sent to you. Sorry can't remember much else, maybe someone else on here has done it recently.

    Hi. If you search for the Departmenr of foreign affairs website then you can apply online and book an appointment and also choose from there the nearest branch to apply for her passport. Just bring all the necessary requirements then if you pay for the fast tract, i think it is roughly Php1200 for an express processing for 7days and Php950 for regular processing which takes up to 15days. I might just apply for the passport of my 2 little boys when we get there in the Philippines as it cost a fortune to get in the Phil embassy and on top of that is the train tickets and other fares...I hope this will help you.

    I wish it were that simple.Its easy to apply for the new passport office in CDO but the queues there are unbelievable!

    Last time we went they also told us they are not doing fast passports anymore due to there being too many applicants and other excuses so it took a month.
    I will look into the online thing though.

    Thanks
