Thanks for the update OMW. Might be an option if they don’t open up the borders by this fall for tourists. I’ll have too research it a bit as I only have a vague idea of the process and time line to obtain an SRRV and even if can be done from the USA.

Just wait ten minutes and the rules will change once more.

Unless they have changed the rules there is no way to do from the US.  You could do the medical part but opening a bank account in Philippines without being present, dont see how thats possible. This is the land that wants to see ID's and loves getting you to fill in many forms especially banks.

Plus you need to do fingerprinting in DFA and then when the visa and SRRV is done theres some totally waste of time "oath taking " in person in front of a PRA person.etc etc.

If theyve changed the rules maybe its ok to do from overseas now but I doubt it.

How can we make things as illogical and complicated as possible, so that our jobs are safe, and the lives of those dreadful 'poor' people and 'aliens' are made an expensive misery ?   :89:

Looks like you can start it from overseas but then????

You used to be able to apply for an SRRV visa at an embassy in your home country, I'm not sure why that wouldn't still be the case?

Exactly. From my limited research it looks like you need to be in the Philippines to complete it. In the  guide that JGF posted (and thanks again for that) it states you must be in the Phils. But as we already know, the rules seem to change daily.

When I have time I’ll try to email the embassy here in the USA and the PRA directly.
