HELP! Traveling to the Philippines as a Taiwan/US Dual Citizen

Postby goldieee » 13 Jul 2012, 02:14

I have a pretty complicated situation here. I'm a dual citizen of Taiwan and the US. I left the US with my US passport and entered Taiwan with my Taiwan passport. I have a trip booked to go from Taiwan to Manila. My question is whether or not I can leave Taiwan with my Taiwan passport and enter the Philippines with my US passport. I want to avoid the process of having to get a visa on my Taiwan passport to visit the Philippines. I'm just not sure if I'll get in trouble because the US doesn't stamp you leaving the country and I don't have a stamp on it showing that I entered Taiwan. I'm just afraid the Philippine immigration will wonder where I came from since my US passport will show nothing.

They wont care. My husband has Taiwan passport but new Australian passport. When we arrived in Manila together a few weeks ago and they only wanted his Australian passport as no visa on the Taiwan passport. It was a brand new unused passport and they just asked how come no stamps. He just replied too many secret missions lol.

Bring both Taiwan and USA passport, they did look in my husbands Taiwan passport just to check where he departed from to get to Manila.

Nice! I just wanted to make sure the Philippine immigration was chill about these kind of things. I know it's illegal in some southeast countries like Indonesia. Thanks!
