  1. It was 5 years ago, but I got to the Oz Embassy in Manila at about 9am and walked out with my CNI at 9.45am, minus about 3,500 pesos.
  2. A quick guide to how much each extension will cost you - Not at this address /wp-content/uploads/2011/02/visaextensioncost.jpg
  3. welcome mate, it's an evolving jam, different musos every week and I'm not always there. but it's always fun I think.
  4. About 4 years ago, a good friend of mine, Mickey Dobie, bought a set of drums, some guitars and amplifiers for a group of Filipino musicians and starting jamming with them every Sunday in Liloan. Mickey, like me, has played in many bands from about the early 60s, however he learned to play guitar properly and went a lot higher up the musical ladder than I did. I’ve been going there for about 3 years and have helped Mickey transform the venue – initially we played in the mud outside the house. Over the years we added a stage, weather protection, a CR, a bar and have upgraded all the musical
  5. The Civil registrars in most municipalities now require that the 'foreigner" also obtains a Cenomar before they will grant a licence. You can read the full requirements on my web site at Not at this address /planning-a-marriage-in-cebu.php
  6. Absolutely correct but you've missed-out the major difference between Quota and Non-Quota Visas (eg 13a, 13g etc) and that is that a Quota Visa is an Immigrant Visa. This means that it lasts indefinitely and can only be canceled under extreme circumstances: it is equivalent to "Indefinite Leave to Remain" status granted to applicable aliens living in the UK. Whereas Non-Quota Visas are Non-Immigrant and automatically expire when the circumstances under which they were granted no longer pertain. As for "paying for themselves" that's a slightly moot point and much depends on the age of the appl
  7. I believe you will be granted full PR status but you need to take the bag with your medical details to Quarantine before you go to Immigration to have the stamp put in your passport. Because of the nature of our business, we don't have any dealings with 13a from overseas but I believe this is the procedure.
  8. I agree with you Geoff; great new menu selection and the food is very good now. Before it was jut a place to drink and swim.
  9. We were there with Dave on Friday and had a great night. Elsa and I were nearly the last to leave - Dave WAS the last to leave!
  10. Under new regulations recently introduced the school has to apply for a student visa on your behalf, it can no longer be done with the help of 3rd parties. I suggest you ask your intended school if they can make the application for you.
  11. Here on a student visa - not allowed to work. Form a corporation and make them a job offer - they have several options - 9g work visa or 47(a)2 PEZA/BOI visa - and a few even more obscure.
  12. I am certainly not, going to argue this subject BUT I think, you will find, the lodging of the documents will require a personal visit to the embassy. Which is what i said in the first place. :) Always ready to be corrected of course. :unsure: :tiphat: I'm not arguing with you Jack, just quoting from the same page as you. I do know I never made a personal appearance anywhere but that was 6 years ago. :tiphat: Then peace be with us Boss, :thumbsup: I really only posted as my friend ( Australian) Had a lot of hassle with his CNI only 7/8 months ago. He ended up going to Manila to the
  13. A month ago the normal waiting time for an ACR card was one week, now it has stretched out to about a month. Don't know why, it just has!!!
  14. Hi mate, I recently met a very well connected Realtor who specializes in high end rentals; however she told me she has some studio rentals near Tops in cebu which she would be offering at around 5,000p a month. I am going to see the places this weekend so may have some good news for you next week. Paul Denial of [email protected]
