Permanent QUOTA (13) visa in the Philippines

7 posts in this topic

Hello!

 

Does any of you have some knowledge about those quota visas?

Is there anybody who has been through this process?

Or do you know someone who got this visa?

 

Seems to be a good choice for people who are not married to

Filipinas, but bought some condominium in the Philippines, for example.

Is it easy to obtain if you indeed invested more than 40 thousand USD?

Especially if your nationality is less popular, not American, Australian,

Canadian etc. Are there more than 50 applicants from most countries every year?

 

Moreover, what is the procedure if someone wants to start in the Philippines, not abroad?

Thank you in advance for describing your experiences in this field.

institution which certifies that the applicant is not infected with any serious or contagious disease; and, is mentally healthy

I looked into this a few years back,apparently even though 50 Quota Visas are issued for each qualifying country every year,the full quota is never fulfilled.

I feel the stumbling block is the $investment,who wants to invest in a country,before they know they have been accepted for that Visa.

If it was a bank deposit that could be withdrawn easily,then that would be a different story.

Although I don't have the necessary contacts myself, I have helped several people obtain this visa over the past 6 months by putting them in contact with a very trustworthy agent.

Why not simply apply for a retirement visa?

Mark

 

Quota visas seem to be much better. You have the right to work, you do not freeze a lot of money in the bank.

Many people want to OWN one condo or more, so this should be the right solution for them.

As you do with a Retirement Visa.

 

you do not freeze a lot of money in the bank.

Only for one month, after then a SRRV holder can withdraw to invest in a condo or business. True, there are penalties for doing so but this may change.

The retirement visa seems to have many fans on various forums, but I do

not share this enthusiasm. One more argument - this visa is only for those

who are 35 or older. Most people do not have a problem with that, but some do.

 

Anyone who had some experience with quota visas?

      Very strangely this is not being reported anywhere in the mainstream news. Last nights (Sat) 7.50 from Ormoc to Cebu collided with another vessel not too far from the port of Cebu. Wife's parents were passengers. MIL texted us at home around 9.30pm that they had just hit another vessel while still out at sea. Sadly the collision was at full cruising speed and apparently "rear ended" another vessel, a barge or similiar sized vessel. Almost all of the passengers which appeared to be not numerous, sustained some injuries, but no deaths. The response of 2Go is being slammed by all aboard, with not telling the passengers any updates, to not giving out where berthed info to making the walking injured walk to waiting relatives outside the port. A large proportion of the passengers were asleep at the time of the collision and have sustained injuries consistent from being thrown from a seat, cuts, abrasions, missing teeth, severe bruising etc. It has been said that the 2Go vessel rode up and onto the other vessel. Quick thinking crew on the other vessel tied the two together to prevent the 2Go cat from becoming adrift or possible sinking.

      I'm driving to SFO later today (Sat) and will land in Cebu Monday morning... pretty damn excited, not looking forward to that long ass flight. I will take a small hit at currency exchange at the airport for some quick cash, then go to a Bank by the mall later on. I am bringing some cash and trying to avoid the fees for using my CC in Cebu. Lots of tee shirts, shorts have been packed, flip flops, sandals, and a pair of comfortable slip on's and short socks for the slip on's (not for the sandals  ) some American snacks, protein bars, and I plan on buying a ton of bottled water... no tap. I had a few trips scheduled but the weather looks like it will cancel a couple of them... just going to play it by the seat of my arse.  This will be my first visit in what I hope will be many. This is a precursor to possibly living there in the coming years once my mom (who I take care of) passes... I am so out of this chit state of Cali!!!. On paper I am planning on 3 visits this year, next in July, then at the end of the year, probably Christmas time (only if I am good with the first visit) I will be meeting the woman I have been talking with for half a year, and I will be meeting a member from LINC who befriended me after I got blasted by a few on here when I mentioned meeting a woman, and how I was supposedly doing it all wrong. (Thanks to Shadow for giving me some pointers) If I don't like the Phils then my next targets are Belize and Chiang Mai (possible business op with a friend) Nothing carved in stone, but I hope the Phils works for me. I'll probably be silent for about the next 2 weeks... but no promises if I feel I need to share some pics or something. In regard to pics... I noticed on here there are very few photos of of the members or things they are doing etc... shy? Scared? Protective? Too ugly?    Peace

      Is this normal in the Philippines ? Is this wacko or am I living in an altered state ? My long term girlfriend is getting ready to sign a contract for an unbuilt half of duplex of 26 sq. meters for half a million p. in a small city in Mindanao. Nice fight ensued on Valentines Day. I have visited but will not be moving there for a year and have no idea about buiding costs in the area. This seems way off the chain to me, but what do I know? Any knowlegeable input would be appreciated.

      A friend has an Iphone 5 and it needs a screen, can anyone recommend a reasonable and reliable place to have it done? I may bring it with me to get it fixed for him if it can be done for a reasonable amount
