CRBA, Passport and SSN - Philippines

5 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone,



Has anybody done the following recently, CRBA, Passport and SSN, can you please walk me through the process.



I just gave birth to our 3rd child here in the Philippines. I went to the US embassy manila website, but the requirements are a bit confusing and this my first time doing it. I am a dual citizen (american - filipino) and my husband is american. I did call the embassy but i did not get much info from the agent and was told to just submit what's on the website.



TIA

For two American citizens it's very easy.

Print out the checklist on the embassy page and gather the documents. As I recall you need the child's birth certificate, your marriage certificate, prior divorce certificates for each of you if applicable, proof of us citizenship (passports suffice), the application for the CRBA, and the fee.

I do not believe physical presence proof is required if both parents are US citizens, but proof of 5 years physical presence in the US is required if only one parent is USC and the other is not.

When we got our daughter's CRBA they asked us if we wanted to apply for SS card and we did. You'll need it for filing taxes. We also submitted the US passport application at the same time we applied for CRBA.

Fill out and gather all the documents and submit them together. For our kiddos we also and as a bonus got them Indonesian passports so they're dualies.

Good luck!
