I am a dual citizen by birth, as my mother is a Filipina and I am currently holding a valid Filipino passport. However, due to the laws of my current country of residence, I am required to use my secondary passport to enter/exit the country and as such I usually apply for a temporary visitor visa whenever I travel to the Philippines.
During my last visit to the Philippines, I was advised by the immigration officer at the airport that I do not require a visa and to just present my valid Filipino passport to be granted entry and upon inquiring with the Philippine Embassy in Saudi they advised the same. As such, I would just like to confirm if this would be a viable option for me when traveling to and from Manila and if I would be able to get both passports stamped upon entry to the country.
Secondly, for anyone who has experience traveling with dual passports from Saudi Arabia, do they require you to show a visa upon check-in? And if they do should I present my Filipino passport when they request my visa?
Any advice on this would be greatly appreciated.
I didn’t specify that I am not a Saudi citizen, I hold a Pakistani passport as well as a Filipino one. So, as a Pakistani, when using that passport I am required to apply for a visa to enter Philippines.
