    To who it may concern,
    I hope you could help me to find someone, someone who could help me get a Philippine citizenship. I was born and raised in the United States and have never been married and have no kids and would like to sell everything I have and own in the United States and move to the Philippines permanently. I have been to the Philippines in the past and would like it to be my permanent residence. I noticed your site and I’m not sure about the difficulty in doing such a thing but if you could help me, it would be much appreciated.
    I’m 43 year old single male in fine health.

      Getting citizenship in the Philippines is very difficult Michael; I understand that you have to be continually resident in the Philippines for a period of eight years without leaving the country even once…and let’s face it…very few people could manage that, so it’s a policy designed to prevent foreigners from becoming Philippine citizens. However, it is relatively easy to reside in the Philippines on a permanent basis without having citizenship…thousands do it! Bob Martin, of this site, is very knowledgeable on the subject, (as are most of the other writers), and you could consult directly with him on the subject for more information.
