BRUCE McTavish, 75, a citizen of New Zealand who has been residing in the Philippines for the last 48 years, was given the Referee of the Year award in the recent WBC annual convention in Kunming, China. “I was awarded as Bruce McTavish from the Philippines,” he stated in a text message on Sunday. McTavish, a former high school teacher in England and New Zealand, was both proud and happy for his achievement. At the same time though, he has remained puzzled at his failure to gain Filipino citizenship. He applied two times, was turned down twice. He’s married to Carmen of the famous Tayag clan in Pampanga, who bore him two children, now grown-ups, both masters degree holders.
McTavish, a competent and popular boxing official, has stopped counting the number of world championships he has worked. He was scheduled to leave for Australia last night for the WBC silver belt fight, after having worked the WBC youth championship last week. He came to the Philippines in 1967. “Am still waiting for my becoming a Filipino,” he said.

He needs to bribe some employees at the immigration. If he does that, I'm sure he will get his citizenship very soon.

Grace lee said before that she's still not given her filipino citizenship.nag apply na siya long,long,long time ago.
gilas player blanche , ang bilis na approve.

and I knew personally some chinese and I believe that many chinese who cannot speak tagalog/english na may philippine passport meaning ....citizen sila ng 'pinas.

ano nga kaya ang dahilan?

Depending on your situation there are three main routes to becoming a naturalized Filipino citizen.

1. The courts - if you are a foreigner who has married a Filipino then a judicial process will allow you to become a Filipino citizen.
2. The Office of the Solicitor General - the OSG has the power to approve petitions for naturalization. The processing fee is around P40,000.
3. An act of congress - if you have made a significant contribution to public life in the Philippines your application to become naturalized can be sponsored by a senator or congressman.

and Bruce Mctavish use the routes of congress...

sino nga ba ang masisisi? immigration?, OSG? Court?
