  1. Depends where you live. At mall yesterday, to get in ID and vax card. Walk directly to the supermarket and show vax card again .Why, who knows as you cant get in the mall entry points without a card so why show it again.
  2. So your profile picture is of when you were younger
  3. Oh that was last year's symptoms. There still working on this years
  4. Maybe not since the Presidential adviser made this statement today. I wont post the whole story as this topic is more about the SRRV but thought I would mention it. Philippines' travel protocols should be like Thailand's, says presidential adviser https://www.philstar.com/business/biz-memos/2022/01/21/2155406/philippines-travel-protocols-should-be-thailands-says-presidential-adviser
  5. I thought you discovered that during the 10 years in prison. Ohh forgot thats a secret. Moderators please delete
  6. I think the option should always be there if people want to vote. If I recall correctly when I left Australia I sent in some form saying I wont return and it removed me from the voters roll as I did not want to bother with it. I think I got confirmation but memory blurred on this one. If not I dont know how many fines await me
  7. Please follow the forum rules for covid positive memers. Positive members must, Wear a facemask when posting Wear surgical or suitable gloves when using a keyboard for posting Sanitize all posts before pressing "Submit reply" If reading and not posting it is recommended a face shield be worn but not compulsory. These rules are for the good of all forum members, be safe
  8. This is correct if no children. If there are children your 13a stays until the children turn 21 from my understanding. Below is taken from this SITE. The BI ruling from HERE Immediate Steps To Take If Your Sponsor Dies I have spoken to The Bureau of Immigration about this topic and they do confirm that the 13a Permanent Resident Visa will remain in effect due to having a child/children with the Filipino spouse if the child/children are also Filipino citizens. BoI does caution that visa status may be lost on account of remarriage. BoI also advises that a visa holder in this situation should also apply for a new ACR-I card to amend civil status from married to widowed. Amendments to the 13(a) visa can be processed at the Legazpi, Naga City or Intramuros Manila immigration offices. I Base this off of the Immigration Subport Directory of Transactions. Be sure to check that document and double check by contacting the office to be certain that they do process these transactions before you ever set out to go there.
  9. How much can P8000 buy? Not much me thinks CEBU CITY – To help families rebuild their houses damaged by Typhoon Odette, Governor Gwendolyn Garcia on Thursday distributed cash cards that can be used to buy housing materials as well as food and other basic necessities. In her speech during the distribution at the Talisay Sports Complex, Garcia said the provincial government targets to give “Dasig Sugbu Cards” to families whose houses were “totally damaged” during the onslaught of the typhoon in mid-December. However, she promised to also distribute assistance to families in the province whose houses were partially damaged. The cash cards with PHP8,000 worth of credit can be presented to any of the provincial government's partner merchants when purchasing food items, galvanized iron sheets, fiberboards, and other construction materials. “Originally, my pledge to the mayors was to allocate PHP5,000 for each family, but I was thinking that those families whose houses are totally damaged, you also have other basic necessities to buy aside from G.I. sheets, fiberboards, including your household implements lost during the typhoon need to be replaced. So, I decided to make it PHP8,000,” she told city officials. Garcia reminded the recipients to use the cash cards wisely and refrain from using them to buy non-essentials. Residents whose homes were wrecked by the typhoon but listed as partially damaged by their local government unit or barangay could wait for the next round of distribution, as Garcia pledged to look for the budget. Apart from the cash assistance, the governor also distributed health kits with 30 capsules of Vitamin C with Zinc, 30 capsules of Vitamin B Complex, 20 capsules of Lagundi cough remedy, and 20 tablets of paracetamol. Talisay City Mayor Gerald Anthony Gullas thanked the governor for visiting the southern portal city to personally distribute about 4,000 cash cards to his constituents who lost their houses because of “Odette”. The governor also pledged to help the barangays in rebuilding their sports gymnasiums and covered courts damaged by the typhoon and distribute UHF handheld radios and generator sets. After Talisay City, the governor moved to the 10 other southern localities of Minglanilla and Naga City before distributing the assistance to the southwestern towns of the province. The distribution was the second leg after the governor and other provincial officials went to 18 localities on Tuesday to distribute the same assistance to typhoon victims.

  10. Well we like to help but you dont appreciate so good luck finding someone who has carried heavy coins on a plane and the info is clear so if you need someone to hold your hand you wont find it here.
  11. Might be of interest to someone from the US. Registering to vote and submitting a ballot is fast, easy, and can be done from anywhere in the world! https://ph.usembassy.gov/message-for-u-s-citizens -voting-in-the-2022-u-s-elections/
  12. You wont find many who have imported coins but google says, Foreign Currency A person may carry up to the amount of USD 10,000 (or equivalent in any other foreign currency), in cash or other monetary instruments, into and out of the Philippines. Other monetary instruments include travellers’ checks, other checks, drafts, notes, money orders, bonds, deposit certificates, securities, commercial papers, trust certificates, custodial receipts, deposit substitute instruments, trading orders, transaction tickets and confirmation of sale/investment. If a person wishes to bring more that the equivalent of USD 10,000, a written declaration must be made in the form of the BSP’s “Foreign Currency and Other FX-Denominated Bearer Monetary Instruments Declaration Form” which may be downloaded from Bangko Sentral ng Pilipinas. https://www.philembassy.no/travel-info/bringing-currency-into-the-philippines Form to present to customs https://www.bsp.gov.ph/Regulations/MORFX/Annex K (cir794_2013).pdf Contact BSP https://www.facebook.com/BangkoSentralngPilipinas
  13. BI answer Hi. If travelling together with spouse/children of former Filipino or Filipino, no need to secure entry visa as long as non-restricted foreign nationals. Please be informed that Filipinos/former Filipinos who wish to avail of the balikbayan privilege should present their old Philippine passports or a copy of their authenticated PSA birth certificate to the immigration officer upon arrival, while their spouses and children shall present their marriage certificates and birth certificates, respectively. He likewise recommends they queue together for easier verification and processing.

  14. Always some new rule somewhere. Hard to keep up. ‘No vax, no entry’ in Cebu City’s indoor establishments CEBU, Philippines – Unvaccinated residents will not be allowed in indoor establishments in this city starting Wednesday, January 19. Mayor Mike Rama signed Executive Order No. 157 on Wednesday afternoon allowing only fully-vaccinated persons to enter indoor places within Cebu City. “In general only COVID-19 fully vaccinated persons, ages twelve (12) to seventeen (17) and above are allowed to enter close and indoor venues and establishments,” read the new EO. The new EO also outlined guidelines for the strict observance and enforcement of Alert Level 3 in Cebu City until January 31. This comes after the Department of Health Central Visayas (DOH7) confirmed the presence of the more infectious Omicron variant in Cebu. Currently, there have been at least 22 Omicron variant cases detected in Cebu City and province. According to the DOH, as of January 18, Cebu City reported 564 new coronavirus cases. The city now has 3,709 active cases for a positivity rate of 42.86%. “This isn’t just about Alert Level 3. Knowing how contagious Omicron is, the best thing we have is our executive order, entitled OPLAN Puyo Gihapon (Stay Home Again), meaning if you’ve got nothing worth doing, just stay at home,” Rama said in a press conference on Wednesday, January 19. Children below the ages of 11, who are not yet qualified to get vaccinated, are strictly prohibited from leaving their homes unless it is for emergencies. Despite this, Rama clarified that there would be no implementation of the “No vax, No ride” policy. Currently, the said policy is being implemented in Metro Manila. “If it will be implemented as a national policy by LTO and LTFRB, that would be their mandate, we really won’t argue with them,” Rama said. As of January 18, Cebu City has fully vaccinated 58.90% of its total population, or at least 543,400 out of 964,169 residents. https://www.rappler.com/nation/no-vaccine-no-entry-indoor-establishments-cebu-city/
