OK???? :unsure: My other answer was on the "money" $$$$$$$$

Difference = MONEY $$$$$$ , that's it. Born in the USA, born in the Phils ... just money. $$$$$$$$$$$$$

The original question you asked about K2 STILL begs an answer .... what is meant by K2??? Is the baby NOT the petitioners??

If the baby is born in the Philippines there is no K2 process as Hank indicated. They would need to file for CRBA that's assuming the baby is from the US citizen petitioning the fiancée. If the father is not a US citizen, then the K2 applies.

Another advantage of being born in the Philippines is automatic dual citizenship. The baby can have a Philippine passport and during the CRBA process will obtain a US Passport.

The decision may come down to timing of the K1 if the application if already in progress. If K1 gets fully approved (interview and all) and she is still pregnant and safe to travel, then there may not be enough time to wait for the baby and then go through the CRBA process without her K1 expiring...know what I mean?

Dual citizenship is automatic no matter if born in the USA or the Philippines. Simply do a report of birth at the consulate representing your state.

Difference is, it is a heck of a lot cheaper in the PI, unless you got some unheard of good insurance in the USA
