This chapter discusses how the state has reconstructed meanings of nationalism and national belonging with respect to overseas migration, resulting in the so-called migrant citizenship. It examines laws and other legal-juridical instruments to track shifts in citizenship, in addition to ethnographic research, interviews with migration bureaucrats, and examinations of government documents produced and circulated within migration agencies. It also explains how the Philippine state’s multiple shifting and overlapping ways has come to construct and reconstruct the meanings of Philippine citizenship that resulted in various kinds of nationalist duties, particularly those pertaining to migrants.

Keywords:   nationalism, national belonging, migrant citizenship, overseas migration, Philippine citizenship, nationalist duties
