Visa for ex military personnel.


Recommended Posts

I think I have asked this question before, if so here goes again sorry.

Is the visa for ex military personnel good for all nations, or only for ex U.S. armed forces personnel?

Here is info from the immigration web site.  I searched but could no list of countries other than the USA "that have military ties and/or agreement with the Philippine government"  

<snip>

SRRV EXPANDED COURTESY
For foreign nationals, 50 years old & above, who are retired Armed Force officers of foreign countries with existing military ties and/or agreement with the Philippine Government. A monthly pension of at least US$1,000.00 and an SRR Visa deposit of US$1,500.00 are required. The SRR Visa deposit includes the principal applicant and 2 dependents. Additional dependent, entails additional SRR Visa deposit of US$15,000 each (except for former Filipinos). CHILDREN must be legitimate or legally adopted by the Principal Retiree, unmarried and below 21 years old upon joining the program.

Well it is mentioned on the Australian site for the Philippine Embassy so I would check with them:

EDIT:  Their info sounds wrong as they say:

Deposit required for . . . 6. Retired military personnel (and members of the diplomatic corps below Ambassador level) = US$ 50,000.00

Better to contact them and ask directly.

It's available to Australian ex-military.  And yes Dave, that 50k USD is a misprint.

The UK also has a military agreement with the Philippines. The key ones here:

Memorandum of Agreement between the Department of National Defense of the Republic of the Philippines and Military Delegations (signed and entered into force 13 Nov 2009)

  • Memorandum of Understanding on Defense Cooperation between the Philippines and the UK (signed 4 December 2017)

Thanks everyone for your contributions, one thing that I have learned from your replies is that although I did 15 years in the Navy and have qualified for war service, I did not get a pension per say. Not that it matters a great deal as that annual payment got my attention.

cheers
