TOPIC: Application for Dual citizenship

Application for Dual citizenship 2 years 6 months ago #17349


I was asked to represent by mvery old aunt, Vicdtoria Gochoco, to facilitate her application for Dual Citizenship (DC). The complete documents was submitted and received last June 17, 2016 by the Bureau of Immigration in Intramuros. Up to now we are still in the dark as to whether the application would be approved or denied. We were told repeatedly on almost every 2 weeks follow up that the case is still under study. Victoria, formerly a natural born Filipino citizen with Filipina mother and a naturalized Filipino father acquired American citizenship sometime in the 60's when she went to the States as a Registered Nurse. She is now retired and applying for DC for her convenience. According to BI we need to present proof that the citizenship of the father was acquired before the birth of Victoria who happens to be the youngest. Unfortunately, NSO does not have any record earlier than 1930's.

My question, why is the citizenship of the father be a major issue when the applicant has documents to prove she was natural born Filipino. In the above mentioned condition, is it fair to let the applicant wait that long?

Thank you for your response.
