Do you have a link to this? I suppose if it can be shown that you acquired said citizenship through questionable means, otherwise I don't think so and certainly wouldn't be easy.

but if your married to a Filipina you don't need a workpermit so the foreigner can work also if you have kids you can put company shares and property in their name, not sure if it falls under the Anti Dummy law but its possible

I just realized something. To become a citizen I must either own real estate worth at least 5000 php, or a business that makes money.

 

However- a non citizen cant own real estate !! lol

I've noticed that oddity as well. When buying property in your wife's name both names appear on the title so I guess that would work there but since you don't have to me married (10 year rule) I don't know how that would be satisfied. Edited by SkyMan

The fact that its only 5000 pesos and they havent bothered to change the amount gives me the impression that owning real estate isnt really taken that seriously anyway
