JJReyes Posted February 21, 2012 Posted February 21, 2012 (edited) While there is no official announcement yet, I received word that the 2nd Philppine Retirement & Healthcare Summit is scheduled as a day long affair on April 24th. More likely the venue will be the Dusit Thani Hotel in Makati, where it was held last year.This is a joint event sponsored by government agencies, the various chambers of commerce, and business and industry associations. I plan to attend and hopefully, participate in round table discussions involving visa issues and healthcare insurance. Any imputs from the forum members either about retirement or healthcare issues will be helpful. Our small group of Filipino-Americans, Filipino-Canadians, and several companies in the Philippines will try to push for changes.For example, we plan to propose a 90 days visa waiver instead of the current 21 days or the recent recommendation to increase it to 30 days. The purpose is to attract Canadian and American "snowbirds" to the Philippines during the winter months. Mexico is the number one foreign destination for snowbirds because the Mexican government issues a visa good for six months. Mexico charges a visa fee, but it is only around $20.Any suggestions?
