Quota visa

Recommended Posts

Posted

Hi, me and my partner who are both British have been living in the Philippines for 6 months and have set up community based eco projects in Palawan. We are wanting to make the Philippines our home and would like to get a residents visa. Is this possible? We know a foreigner who got a quota visa. Any advice on how we might be able to achieve this. Marrying a Filipino isn't an option. cheers!

Residency is way better.

It is very possible. Don't need to be married for a 13 series visa with Residency. But you will need 50 grand, US. That's like 35,000 quid. If you have already made investments, that might count:

As a British couple the problem you will find is the British Embassy won't notarise any of your documents. I've been informed that I have to fly all the way back to the UK just to get 3 forms stamped. They allegedly need you to countersign them in person. I've emailed a few times and it looks like no one ever reads the emails.
