  1. Skype also offer a 'home country' phone number. ( I discovered that I can also phone government and other 'freephone' numbers in my country (England) through Skype. ) My (UK) bank is happy enough to send texts to either my phone with a British SIM card in it, that I brought here with me 4 years ago, or the phone with my local (Globe) SIM, here in the Philippines.
  2. Yes, I do understand that you're basically 'at their mercy'....in the interests of wildlife protection.... and there is precious little of that in the Phils, fair enough. Imagine what it must be like in India, where there are millions more of the buggers doing what the hell they like, nevermind cattle wandering around the streets.
  3. Wish they were so efficient in my country. Half the population of London would be packing their bags.
  4. Shame. Little twats. A 12 bore might be a handy purchase.
  5. I do understand... of course (and I have brought a bride back to my country in the past). That is why I said 'SOME' of these lovesick dopes'.
  6. Some of these lovesick dopes (from reading their comments) need to understand that there is a pandemic at the moment. Those with kids here I can understand, naturally....though I think they can come anyway, can't they, with appropriate visa ? Of course they will have needed to have actually bothered to have gone through all the correct processes here , as regards having their name on the child's birth cert, etc. Those just missing the sex... tough. It's up to the government...and insulting them won't help.
  7. Agree. It has become an affliction, rather than an asset, for many people.
  8. Here is what they (BI) put on their Facebook page . Check the last paragraph : . 03 October 2021 PRESS RELEASE BI rotates 341 NAIA personnel Starting Sunday, more than 300 officers of the Bureau of Immigration (BI) at the Ninoy Aquino International Airport (NAIA) will be reporting to their new terminal assignments as part of the agency’s continuing campaign to curb corruption among its personnel. Atty. Carlos Capulong, BI Acting Port Operations Chief, disclosed that Immigration Commissioner Jaime Morente has approved his recommendation to implement the rotation scheme at the premiere port on October 3. Capulong said the 341 BI officers to be rotated do not yet include the 99 newly-hired immigration inspectors who are still undergoing on-the-job training at the airport. After the new recruits have finished their training, they, too, will be dispersed and deployed to the country’s major ports, he added. “This will be the last rotation of our NAIA personnel this year as the next reshuffle will be implemented during the first quarter of 2022,” Capulong said. It was learned that aside from BI officers manning NAIA’s immigration counters, the BI will also rotate the terminal assignments of 77 immigration supervisors assigned at the airport. Earlier, Morente announced that the Bureau is fast tracking the recruitment of nearly 200 new BI officers who will be deployed to the NAIA and other major ports early next year. The BI Chief had stressed the need to field more immigration inspectors after the Department of Transportation (DOTr) said it was considering to raise the daily cap on passenger arrival, and reopen other airports to international travel. Morente also said he remains hopeful that international travel will normalize early next year, as the country continues to aggressively pursue its efforts to vaccinate the whole population and achieve herd immunity against Covid-19.
  9. Trying to work out whether that is more than will have been paid to voters for next year's winning presidential candidate.
