nope, dual citizenship. i was born in nz but my parents were still filipino citizens by birth so apparently I'm considered as re-acquiring citizenship.
problem is, they didn't register my birth with the philippine embassy in nz, but we're not sure if there was one here back in the 70s. now we're working on the registration of birth paperwork which is marriage certs, birth certs, philippine passports etc all from the 70s.
so once the documentation requirements are fulfilled, the embassy says i can just apply for my philippine passport and that's it
