  1. My apologies but I've seen it too many times that I suppose I have become a bit hardened to what can go on. I'm not one for sugar coating things and prefer people being blunt than saying things to appease me. I hope you get things sorted but I'd email or message immigration as I'm sure they will be understanding. I have a friend with a degenerative spine condition who can't fly and his doctor assured him she would issue a not fit to fly certificate.
  2. Better to get a doctor to assess you if bed ridden then no airline will fly you out and immigration will just keep giving you extensions as it's more trouble than it's worth. Never do anything illegal, it's just not worth it and being a sceptic I'd be wondering how much of that 200k will end up in your partners pocket.
  3. Looks like someone has been making a killing over previous motions for consideration. Straight from the Bureau Of Immigration site: Fine for Overstaying – (additional) Php 500.00 per month Motion for Reconsideration for Overstaying – (additional) Php 500.00 + Php 10.00 (LRF) Re-issuance of ACR for (2nd entry of every entry after 59 days) – Php 250 [for minors: Php 150] Application fee is only Php 300.00 for overstaying https://immigration.gov.ph/visa-requirements/non-immigrant-visa/temporary-visitor-visa/extension-of-authorized-stay-beyond-59-days
  4. I don't understand where they are getting the information stating you need a motion for consideration. The press release explains the requirements which is outstanding fines and visa payment. The Executive Order teling us to leave has been supended so there should be nothing to consider, Morente has already decided we don't have to leave.
  5. I was under the impression the fee for overstaying is 500 peso per month plus all outstanding visa fees and express lane fees if applicable. Added to that was a requirement for a letter from an attorney explaining the reason for overstay. I'd imagine there's no requiement for that letter now. Those were the fees my friend had to pay the last time he overstayed and on that premise I'm expecting it to cost me approx 2,330 peso every 2 months as my office doesn't charge express lane.
  6. I can't see them locking out tourists much longer. What with elections coming up and money being handed out to cover the state of calamity which obviously won't be used to buy votes. I'm sure they'd rather have tourism putting money back into the public purse.
  7. The last time I did one I registered online and received a code, appointment and proof of payment. I then had to attend to get fingerprints taken.
  8. Like most things I'll believe it once I see it officialy published on the Immigration website.
  9. The best way to prove you are correct is to put up links to peer reviewed studies showing that percentage wise more vaccinated people are dying of covid or having long term covid than those not vaccinated. I was wary of vaccines from day one but regardless how many times I looked for negative vaccination reports the science always proved me wrong. The opposite couldn't be said for non vaccinated. Even when good friends have sent me links showing over 80 people vaccinated died from Covid in one area the science showed me over 30k non vaccinated had caught covid compared to a few hundred vaccinated and more non vaccinated had died and those vaccinated that had died the vast majority were over 70yrs old and with underlying illnesses. Semi back on track to discrimination I'm afraid in the Philippines regardless what the law says if you aren't vaccinated you will suffer one way or another. My partner just applied for a job at a major resort employing about 500 people and was told forget it unless double vaccinated. All other resorts on the island although not publishing it through word of mouth are pretty much doing the same.
  10. My ex has been attempting to visit myself and current partner ( I know ) since the begining of August and is now on her third cancellation via Pal. They are desperate not to give refunds as some of the replacement flights are a joke. Fly into Caticlan at 10:20am and return to Cebu the same day at 11am. The other change they offered was fly to Caticlan on the 8th of Sept returning on the 3rd of Sept, they must have a time machine. Cebu Pacific were good, two cancellations and full refunds within 3 months. Air Juan took 27 months and the involvement of the Civil Aeronautical Board before they paid up.
  11. Just reading today that virtual mariages are permitted as long as the couple are together but the person conducting the marriage can be elsewhere. Personally if someone is trying to marry a person on line having never met, surely that is grounds to stop them marrying or even entering the Philippines as they are obviously not of sound mind.
  12. I would double check the source of the data on Massachusetts as it's incorrect and they also miss out critical data. Just little things like selecting data to make it look like vaccination doesn't work but failing to highlight the State opened up to some major sporting events and festivals with large crowds of vaccinated people. As the vaccine isn't 100% efficient you will obviously get some breakthrough infections. The actual data even highlights that the majority of breakthroughs were due to the Delta variant which again the vaccines are not as efficient against but still multiple times more efficient than not being vaccinate. The other minor point is no one died that was vaccinated. Only 5 fully vaccinated were hospitalised. During July 2021, 469 cases of COVID-19 associated with multiple summer events and large public gatherings in a town in Barnstable County, Massachusetts, were identified among Massachusetts residents; vaccination coverage among eligible Massachusetts residents was 69%. Approximately three quarters (346; 74%) of cases occurred in fully vaccinated persons (those who had completed a 2-dose course of mRNA vaccine [Pfizer-BioNTech or Moderna] or had received a single dose of Janssen [Johnson & Johnson] vaccine ≥14 days before exposure). Genomic sequencing of specimens from 133 patients identified the B.1.617.2 (Delta) variant of SARS-CoV-2, the virus that causes COVID-19, in 119 (89%) and the Delta AY.3 sublineage in one (1%). Overall, 274 (79%) vaccinated patients with breakthrough infection were symptomatic. Among five COVID-19 patients who were hospitalized, four were fully vaccinated; no deaths were reported. https://www.cdc.gov/mmwr/volumes/70/wr/mm7031e2.htm
  13. It'll probably not work here as she'll have no load, be in a poor signal area, no charge on her phone, phone on silent.
  14. Myself at my partner got a walk in Astra Zenica vaccine yesterday and the location we had it just last week one person who had been in the hall for 7hrs with zero social distancing got refused the vaccine as her temp was way too high and she was feeling rough. They just told her to go home and self quarantine for two weeks then carried on as if nothing happened. Even as we were getting vaccinated they had the usual photographer telling everyone to put their face masks and shields on for the photo but the second he finished the shields were off and masks pulled down.
