Tatoosh Posted January 12, 2012 Posted January 12, 2012 I am about to get a 13a permanent resident visa or so I hope. Now the question for me is what if I move back to the States for a few years, will the 13a be revoked or will I be unable to renew it (or the ACR-I) card that goes with it? And the annual reporting requirement, what to do if you are not in the Philippines when that occurs in January? This isn't a pressing situation, but my wife and I expect to return to the States for a few years so she can work in her field there and get some specialized post-grad training. Likely for 3 or 4 years in the States. After that we hope to come back to Baguio City in the Philippines. I am hesitant to ask these questions at the BOI office while my visa is still in the process. They may just decide I don't need it. I will be in the Philippines for at least two more years while my wife finishes her course work here and does her thesis. I really want to keep the 13a and enjoy living in the Philippines long term down the road. Anyone out there with a 13a that has moved out of the Philippines for a significant period of time?
