Draft child citizenship law critiqued | NEWS | POLITICS | Draft child citizenship law critiqued

In the Philippines it is simple, if your parents are citizens of the Republic of the Philippines you gain Filipino citizenship.

I don't know the reason why New Zealand and other nations have citizenship gained by birth? It just makes other problems like birth tourism (pregnant women giving birth in other countries so that their babies gain the citizenhip of the nation of birth).
