Hey all.

So i intend on moving to the Philippines very soon and i was just going to utilise the tourist stamps every 60 days like many of us out there. But alot of expats i've noticed are older/married and may never have pursued this avenue. Is there any visas which may be available to young full time students, i will be doing an IT course via a government certified online agency while living in the Philippines. Just wanted to know what my Visa options are?

Thank you kindly. :)

ALSO! With a working visa. In theory could i be sponsored by a company for employment on a casual basis, do you need specific proven skills, do you need proof you're on the payroll?

Is it a filipino Government certified online agency?, if not i don't think you can get a student visa.

The basic rule of thumb for work : Unless you are a specialist where no Filipino can do your job or are going to own your own business (with restrictions), you either have to work offshore or not at all. Now ,there are always exceptions to the rule and ways to get around the rules so, as we do not discuss things that are illegal on here... And, for those who think working offshore is on an oil rig (yes, I have been asked about that), I am referring to a business set-up in another country... ie: on-line sales, etc.

This is the official website of the Philippines Immigration , http://www.immigration.gov.ph/

Visa's are listed on the left hand side of the page. :cheersty:

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.
