  1. So, yesterday (Friday 4 Sept) I got up early to catch the bus from Sibonga to South Terminal, and then a cab on to J Mall to pick up my ACR card, and add some time to my visa. A couple of side notes, or observations.... Firstly, the bus route has changed. It used to divert off South Cebu Road at Talisay and go via SM Seaside, before rejoining South Cebu Road, a couple of K before the terminal. Never quite understood why.... until yesterday. Now it goes straight up South Cebu Road, through Tabanok, etc. The trip used to take about a hour.... Yesterday it was over two hours. I am
  2. I always found Immigration a pleasure to deal with. Always polite and friendly. Maybe a question or two if one is married or not, and thats it. Can't remember any incident like this reported before. On one of my returns to Ph, I went to the side office at arrival where the high ranking IO is located. I presented my passport and 3000 and asked if it was possible to get a extension to 59 days. Immigration Officer took my passport and went thru page by page. Yearly trips to Thailand for a couple of months, between my PH visas. Also retirement visa for Thailand. That alone should had been a clue o
  3. I am currently getting the paperwork together in preparation for acquiring an exit certification. While going through the checklist provided me by the local BI, under passport requirements, it said I needed a photocopy of the biopage, arrival date, CRTV STAMP, latest extension. I have all the documentation prepared, but for the life of me, I have no idea where this CRTV STAMP is located in my passport. Personally, I think this is a rather inconvenient hassle, especially having to travel to Cebu for certification. They have everything about me in the computerized system, including all
  4. Hi, anyone can give me some info about how long does it usually takes to downgrade a work visa (9g)? I already cancelled my work visa and wondering how long does it takes to downgrade it. And what should i do after downgrading? Get an ECC? Thanks
  5. When i lived in Cebu i had to go to the immigration department every 2 month and pay a fee to live there, can i still do this ?. The reason i ask is we will be coming over from the beginning of December to the end of January and the notary signature on the extended visa is at least £90. Also can i just enter the Philippines on a British passport tried phoning 3 numbers at the London embassy but they don't answer the phone.
  6. Seeking helpful advice from members who have gone thorough this process: 1) My wife has an interview scheduled in Manila in late October for a spousal visa (green card). I am trying to pay NVC fees as per the NVC website prior to the interview. To do so I need an "invoice identification number", which I do not have. Two emails to 2 different "Contact us" invitations on first the NVC then the Manila Embassy websites were useless. Finally I called the "Contact us" telephone number for the embassy and was told by the rep who answered to just pay the fees on the day of the interview. Any advic
  7. My fiance has an approved U.S. K1 VISA. We would like to go to the U.S. and get married then come back to the Cebu and get married. We plan to continue living in Cebu after we are married. We would like to travel to the U.S. at least once a year for short 1-3 month holidays. What are the best option(s) based on the above as well as keeping our options open for future. Options? * Marry then Apply to Extend/Change Nonimmigrant Status and stay in the US for 6 months min.? * Once married in US apply for an Approved Parole? so we can go back to PH * Apply for extension? * Ma

  9. Straight to the point,my friend is planning to apply a fiancée visa to the USA and she's keep asking me if what is the steps she needed to do and what are the fastest way to get visa approved, fiancée visa or spouse visa? But I can't answer all her question it's because I don't know about those type of visa, I'll been in USA California for visiting my family only and that's all I know. Is anyone here, a wife or a gf that been applying a visa going to the USA? What are the fastest way? It is possible for her to bring her son to USA ? Her fiancée is not the real father but willing to let my fri
  10. We are getting married in Cebu in July. I am from UK, she is Filipina. We are both over 18. I meet the rules for spouse sponsors income. She has had 4 previous tourist visas to UK.

  11. Looking for a step by step on procedures to obtain a visa for my partner to enter and stay in the UK and European Union countries, for a few weeks starting April next year, returning June to the Phills.

  13. University "offer" me two types or visa - student and SSP, can you explain what's a differences between them. Of course SSP is 'easier' to get but anyway I wanna make a driver licens eon Philippines and not get problem if I will go out from country and come back(last time they pushed me to buy return ticket..).

  14. went yesterday for my extension then ask how many months left before i have to get out ?then they told me 3 years just do the renew every 2 months that all wowww that good but will go out before to get some fresh air hahahahahah
  15. I come and go from here to the US about twice a year. I am married but I travel alone. When I come into PI, they give me a 30 day visa. But if I were to come in with my wife, they give me a year. Now I am being told that it is a two year visa if I come into PI with my wife. The problem is that if I travel alone, they put a new 30-day Visa stamp onto my Passport. Can this be avoided? I was also told that I can bring along a copy of my Marriage Certificate and that they will not cancel my Balakbayan Privilege. Can anyone verify the new Balakbayan Privilege rules and also the validity of
  16. I lived in Dumaguete for three years and was able to go to the local BI Office with shorts and slippers. It was usually a painless experience and took from 20-40 minutes from arrival to departure with my new 2 month extension in my Passport. However as they had to send many things to Manila for completion or approval, at times it was a long waiting experience. Especially when I was applying for my extension to 20, 22, and 24 months, needed an ECC or to renew my ACR-I Card. Point in fact, I renewed my ACR-I Card on May 17th and as of July 15th, it still had not arrived back in Dumaguete. They s
  17. I have a question about getting an extension vs paying a penalty when leaving the country. Usually I am able to get an extension to 59 days upon arrival (usually in MNL) however this time arriving Clark at 11 pm if there is an office there it was closed. The holy week closings complicated getting an extension while in cebu city. My 21 day tourist visa expires April 6 so there is plenty of time but would like to leave cebu city Sunday rather than wait around to do the extension on Monday. I will leave Phills on April 19 or maybe a week later, undecided at the moment. This would put me at 1
  18. I'm interested in how I can work for myself legally. I work online (webdev and SEO) but will also be communicating with customers abroad and marketing to potential customers by VOIP (mainly in Australia, possibly US). Other people do this sort of thing under the radar, but I'm interested in dotting my i's and crossing my t's. One reason is that I would like to work in a call center, so more publicly than most. Another is that want to employ locals; also that I don't want to risk the consequences of getting busted working illegally. From what I've learned elsewhere, one of my options i
