  1. There is no official news that say they are here in Dumaguete, although the PNP and Military are on alert, but they do that anytime a major holiday comes around. http://www.sunstar.com.ph/dumaguete/local-news/2017/04/11/pnp-afp-step-measures-while-full-alert-semana-santa-536140 But Bohol is a whole different story http://news.abs-cbn.com/news/04/13/17/bohol-villagers-evacuated-anew-amid-abu-sayyaf-threat
  2. Where did you get your information from?
  3. And I thought he didn't want our help. Well now he's requesting it. http://news.abs-cbn.com/news/04/09/17/duterte-calls-on-us-to-help-fight-terrorism
  4. I guess that they are serious this time. http://cebudailynews.inquirer.net/129248/armed-men-sighted-bohol-town-firefight-govt-troops-ongoing#ixzz4duMGzcVD
  5. The 13A is quite easy to get and no lawyer is needed to get it unless you like throwing your money away. All requirements are on the BI Visa page. Policy hasn't been changed for over a year. Do not follow the blogs, they are all outdated.
  6. Might be good to have her get her Certificate of No Marriage (CENOMAR) issued by the PSA / NSO. That way you can be sure she is not married. Better to be sure than waste alot of money to find out that she can't get married.
  7. You still end up paying the annual report fee. Look at your receipt so you really didn't get out of it.
  8. Well you might find someone in the BI to overlook that, but do you really want to chance that? I can't see giving the BI extra money when I can avoid it. They do have the power to charge you with a overstay which would result in you having to apply for the 13A again. I was told when I got my 13A to keep my visa current or face doing it all over.
  9. No medical tests requirements for applying for 13A in-country for UK residents.
  10. Here's the order regarding medical tests and what Countries do and don't require them. http://immigration.gov.ph/images/OPERATIONSORDER/Dec2014/OOSBM 2014-059-ANew.pdf
  11. If you have been here over 6 months, you will need the EEC
  12. This is really getting to be a problem in Dumaguete I hope they send this clown back to where he came from. They just arrested a British expat a couple of days ago for arson. If you want to make a fool of yourself do it in your own country. We expats that keep a low profile and don't cause trouble don't like the attention we get due to some "Ugly Expat".
  13. Thats the main problem here in the PI, Land Ownership. Seattle has been using their Monorail system since 1962 and the cars were built in Germany. It would be a good system if they could just get around the Land Ownership, which is going to have to change if the PI wants to do any real transportation projects.
  14. Jack, Chris should have a person handling all this SSA records at the Embassy so it will make it easy for her to contact them either by email or telephone. The email is FBU.Manila@ssa.gov or call (632)301-2000 ext 9. The Embassy is closed today so she might want to send a email and then follow up with a phone call. Too bad she has to find out the hard way on this. I hope other expats that don't prepare for situations like this to keep this in mind. Once we are gone our spouse will be going through enough with our passing so let them know what needs to be done in case it does.
  15. Jack, We had a good friend in the same position as Gina. She can contact the SSA at the US Embassy directly. They will take care of everything for her, no need for a middleman.
