How to apply dual citizen? 

You don't usually apply for "dual citizen". You become dual citizen usually because you acquire another citizenship and still retain your origin's country citizenship or you one of your parent passes on their citizenship to you.

Not in the PI.  You acquire and you lose.  You need to apply to get it back
