  1. In the recent 3 weeks, two persons I know of have allegedly been threatened by Cebu / Mactan airport BI officials upon arrival to get their permanent visas or risk not being able to return to the Philippines again. They have both lived here a number of years, look and dress responsible, and have lovely fiances or GFs. The officers allegedly also told them they are marking their passport info in the computers with remarks saying they won't be able to come back into the country if they don't have permanent residency. That would mean SRRV of $15,000 up to $50,000 to be deposited into a bank he
  2. I must apply/purchase my first visa extension of 30 days. Many years ago, in order to any gov't office, you needed to wear your big boy pants, not shorts, and wear shoes/sandals but no flip-flops. Are all or any these rules still in place?? To obtain the 59 day visa upon entering the country, YOU MUST NOT GET IN THE LINE TO HAVE YOUR PASSPORT STAMPED. YOU MUST BOLDLY GO DIRECTLY TO THE OFFICE ON YOUR RIGHT, CROSSING ANY BARRIERS IN YOUR WAY. ONCE THEY STAMP YOUR PASSPORT, YOU ARE F....D! THEY WILL NOT HELP YOU; and, like me, you will have an extra trip to immigration within 29 days
  3. I have heard that when a filipino leaves the country, say , with a US Visa in hand to visit the USA, the Philippine immigration at the airport requires the filipino to prove they are coming back by providing a round trip airfare ticket, certificate of employment (if possible) or other proof they will return. Is this for real? makes no sense to me, but need clarification. Perry
  4. Just flew from Boston to Hong Kong and finally into Cebu-Mactan yesterday via Cathay Pacific, and wanted to share my APEC experience as a US card holder. Mentioned this in another thread a while back but it is worth repeating: the USA - APEC card that just started being issued last summer does not list any pre-authorized visa countries on the back due to the US not having reciprocal visa and interviewing policies with asian countries. Basically the US version is only supposed to be good for using the APEC / Diplomatic lanes in immigration to countries, but I had heard reports online of pe
  5. Good day people, I came here to find some answers regarding the VCU form (philippines immigration) which is downloadable on internet on this link https://www.pdffiller.com/en/project/37556930.htm?form_id=28389995 I'm actually applying from abroad (to know if im not blacklisted or whatever after threats), so i'll have someone there in Phils bringing my passport copy plus VCU form filled out. The issue is that i have no idea on what to put for ''PURPOSE". Immigration may find weird my request from abroad ? hope to find some help, thanks for the reading
  6. Hi everyone, In 2013, i was holding a 9G visa (non immigrant) and left for Singapore for 2 weeks holidays. The day I was about to go back to the Philippines, I had hard time with the Singapore immigration lady asking me a proof that I was living in the Philippines ! After showing many papers, she was in fact looking for my 9G visa card and let me board. It was a stressfull situation and heard lately that a 13A visa had the same encounter. So my question is, what would happen if i couldnt show my 9G visa card ? Singapore immigration are aware about all those non immigrant and im
  7. Like the topic title says. I went to the office this morning, and it was apparently being inspected by safety officials. I was told it would be open for business as usual on Friday. Anybody heard any different?
  8. This Year 2013 is the Year of ANTI Human Trafficking. A very laudable effort which involves and coordinated multiple Government and Non government organisations such as this : http://www.malaya.com.ph/index.php/news/nation/21748-86-rescued-in-trafficking COAST Guard elements last week rescued 86 human trafficking victims in separate operations in Zamboanga City. Coast Guard spokesman Cmdr. Armand Balilo said their Special Operations Group conducted the operation last Thursday following a tip that two vessels along Petro Bay Wharf in Zamboanga City were carrying human trafficking vict

BI Commissioner Ricardo David Jr. disclosed that aliens arrested this year rose three-fold over the 153 foreigners arrested in 2011. “All of them were detained at the BI detention center in Bicutan, Taguig and subsequently charged for violating our immigration laws,” David said.
