The United States does not recognize dual citizenship.

You can keep your Philippine passport and get your US passport but you will be required to enter and exit the U.S. on your U.S. Passport.

The renouncing of ones previous citizenship is part of the oath that new US citizens must take, and failing to honor that oath could result in the loss of citizenship in the United States.

Nope. ABSOLUTELY NOT. The Oath does not mention "citizenship" or "nationality" at all. The US has NEVER expected people naturalizing to go and renounce other nationalities.

Also, the Philippines recognizes dual citizenship.

My wife reacquired her Philippines citizenship. She used the information on the Philippines Consulate's (San Francisco) web site to get it done. We both thought the information was straight forward and clear.

Would u pls share her experience on how did she obtained her dual ? Thank you

She simply followed the steps on the Philippines Consulate's web site.

Since Chiook was a K-1er, she reported our marriage, and followed the steps for reacquiring Filipino citizenship and getting another passport.

She completed everything in less than an hour at the Consulate's outreach event in our area. A couple of months later, her new passport arrived on our doorstep.

I know a few that have, my wife will be doing that in a few months. It is very simple to do actually and can be completed at an outreach event.

Mods should have moved this to the Philippines forum.. that would have helped you much more.

Totally not true, except for the entering and exiting the USA part.
