    I will have my oath taking po kc sa Jan 26, 2019. And may planned travel po ako ng Feb 8. Baka po kasi invalid na ang Philippine passport ko nun.

    Hindi po na-i-invalid ang philippine passport hanggang wala pa sa expiration date. You still can use it kahit australian ka na. Mas ok nga na may valid philippine passport ka kasi pag uwi mo sa pinas, unli-stay ka pa rin kasi may valid philippine passport ka pa. Napaka-lenient ng Phil law for pinoys na naturalized in other countries kasi ini-encourage ng govt. na mag-dual citizen.

    Totoo po ba talaga ito? I became AU citizen recently and got Australian passport and is planing to have 6 weeks vacation sa pinas. Am I allowed to stay that long? My Philippine passport is still valid till 2022.
