Ok my plan is to try being an ex-pat in Cebu. I want to go for one year to start and then extend if I want. Not sure if I can.  I am coming from U.S. I was also figuring to make a month long return visit to the states in May. I am near D.C. so embassy is sort of convenient. What kind of visa and how long would you do it for in this case ? Maybe get another visa in May ?

 

thanks

I'm afraid the last visa was given out a week ago...  

Have you seen the list of requirements the Embassy wants before granting the 59 day visa ??? ....easier to just arrive and get the 30 days ....

Any work visa (e.g., 9(g)), free zone visa (e.g., 47(g)) can be 1 year or longer... or a retirement visa (you can get out of retirement later if you want to)... so it is not impossible...

I think I got it. 2 month visa , 2 month extension, U.S. for a month, new 2 month visa, extend, extend, extend, extend, extend. So then I am supposed to leave country after year from original visa right ? and apply for a new visa right ?

You are wasting your time applying for any visa if you intend to stay in the Philippines as a tourist. There are tourists who have lived here for decades without ever having a visa. It is a visa waiver that you receive on arrival. 

 

I can't believe Im taking the time to type this when its readily found on multiple websites including this one.

You'll save a little money if you go to the embassy and buy a 9a visa before you come.  It can be used 90days from issue and gives you 59 days on arrival.  Then you start doing 2 months extensions.

Anyway, just apply for a single entry at the embassy. It will give you a 3 months window to enter the country. Upon entry, you will have two months to stay, before needing to extend. It is a single entry visa.

what gave you that idea? i only know exactly what most know. the fellow can indeed stay one year and there are a few choices visa-wise and none of them are secret nor particularly hard to do. i think skyman outlined the best of the options for the fellow.
