    I have a buddy na galing USA and is an american citizen.

    Ang visa pala nila is only for 3 weeks per visit?

    Ang tanong ko eh parang gusto niya tumira dito at bumili ng bahay pwede ba yon? MAgaasawa siya ng Filipina does this allow him to have dual citizenship para makaputok din daw?

    HEhehe amoy pulbura din siya

    Dual citizenship is dependent on whether his country of origin allows this. (presuming he is a natural american born)

    Ang higpit ng immigration natin ano, 3 weeks lang...

    My wife is an American citizen but actually falls under the category of being a natural born Filipino, and here's what we learned as we filed for her dual citizenship...

    If he is a foreigner that has Filipino lineage, then he can apply for dual citizenship.

    Only natural born Filipinos may own firearms. If he's not natural born Filipino, then he can apply for citizenship here, but cannot purchase firearms.

    If he does marry a Filipina, she must be the one to purchase and possess the necessary permits for a firearm, he may only borrow it, i.e. he can't use it without her.

    Establishing that a foreigner is a natural born Filipino but with foreign citizenship is a long and complicated affair, but not impossible if he has enough documents to prove it.

    na scramble yata yung brain ko, ano nga ba ibig sabihin ng natural born pinoy?
    brown colored person born locally?
    If i was born sa US, I cant own a firearm ba?

    Under the Philippine Constitution, a natural born citizen is a person born of one or two parents who are Filipino citizens at the time of birth, ex. my wife was born in Subic to an American father is an American citizen, but since my mother-in-law was still a Filipina citizen at the time of her birth (not naturalized yet) my wife still falls under natural born Filipino (so she can also own firearms! :supergrin: )

    He can apply for permanent residency and later apply for Filipino citizenship if he wants.

    Bro, I am not sure if this still works but I believe if he can provide legal employment to at least ten (10) Filipinos in the country, then he can stay here indefinitely. There is a process though that he has to go through.
