Dual Citizenship in Phil LA Consulate During Covid

hi everyone! 

 

I have filled for my n400 under ina 319b and once i get my noa1 and my receipt number i'll be calling the military hotline to expedite my n400 citizenship process. Most of the people are taking 1.5 -3 months for this process for the past few months. I'm about to pcs this december. But i'm thinking at the very earliest i might get my us citizenship within the end of october or november.  So its soo little time to apply for a us diplomatic passport even if i rush it. Cause i'm leaving in dec and i have to have a valid passport to enter japan. So i'm considering to just do my dual citizenship instead so i can use my new philippine passport in my married name that was issued last feb 2019 to me. 

 

My question is:

1. Is it hard to schedule dual citizenship in the la consulate the past few weeks/months? 

2. Anyone here did the dual citizenship process during covid? How was the process? Any tips you have? Which consulate/embassy did you do it at? Are there extra things i should be preparing/aware of? 

3. If i do my dual citizenship, can i still use my current philippine passport or will i need to apply for a new one again? Cause i really don't know how that will go. 

 

Thanks so much!

Once you receive us citizenship,  it will be much faster to apply and receive a US passport than going through the Philippine dual citizenship process 


YMMV

2. Anyone here did the dual citizenship process during covid? How was the process? Any tips you have? Which consulate/embassy did you do it at? Are there extra things i should be preparing/aware of? INFO IN THE LINK BELOW

Thanks so much! 

IMHO - you will have your U.S. passport much quicker than the time it would take to obtain you dual citizenship and new Philippine passport.
