I don't understand your question. You say your son has gotten citizenship by descent, and if his country of birth allows dual citizenship he should now have this. But he'd need to check with his country of birth what they allow.

If you're asking about dual citizenship for yourself, then you'd need to apply for a PR visa if you are eligible for one, and then meet the criteria for citizenship such as the residency requirement of living 4 years in Australia including 1 year on PR visa.

Im not sure what your concern is? If your son was born in the Philippines to a Filipino Citizen then just get him a Philippines Passport.
Then he can enter Australia on his Australian Passport and enter the Philippines on his Philippines Passport.

In saying that i do believe the Philippines has a rule that once a citizen has required citizenship in another country they lose Filipino Citizenship however you can reaquire Filipino Citizenship by filling out a form and paying a fee therefore becoming a dual citizen

I think Sammy has answered this question. Australia will allow him to have multiple citizenships, so you need to look into what's required for the Philippines to allow him to maintain his Filipino citizenship.

If your son was granted citizenship by descent then he is an Australian citizen. He either has or will have an Australian passport.

When you both come to Australia he will enter on his Australian passport and you on yours from the Philippines, you doing so with a visitor visa.

That's what I've gathered so far.

Now, I believe you're asking if your son, now an Australian citizen with an Australian passport can return to the Philippines with you at the end of your holiday? Is that right?

From what I understand, people from the Philippines once granted a citizenship from another country would then surrender their citizenship/passport from the Philippines.

www.immigration.gov.ph/services/cit...-retention-re-acquisition-of-phil-citizenship

From my understanding your son would need to apply to re-acquire his Philippine citizenship. That link should help you.

I am not sure about the Philippines but other countries allow children (up to an age) to hold dual citizenship, after that age is reached they must decide what citizenship they wish to hold.

For your son to travel out of Australia you may need the permission of the father to allow the travel out of the country.

You will not qualify for dual citizenship - your son will.

You would need to obtain a Permanent Resident Visa and meet the qualifying requirements to apply for citizenship.

There maybe a restriction on you departing Australia with your son, as generally both parents need to give consent for the child to travel overseas.

When you apply for your sons Australian passport, his father must fill out a section.

I do not recall if in this section - they agree for travel with a single parent or not.??

But I do know that there is restrictions on children travelling with only one parent, I have travelled many times with kids as a single parent and never been questioned - so I expect it is in the passport application stage.

If the father gives consent for travel there are no issues - regardless for how long or for what reasons travel is required.

It seems the father would give such consent, so you should not have much to worry about for your son.
