I would appreciate it if you could ask as I don't use Facebook. We wont be traveling until about the end of February, tidying up loose ends. Thanks.

BI answer

Hi. If travelling together with spouse/children of former Filipino or Filipino, no need to secure entry visa as long as non-restricted foreign nationals. Please be informed that Filipinos/former Filipinos who wish to avail of the balikbayan privilege should present their old Philippine passports or a copy of their authenticated PSA birth certificate to the immigration officer upon arrival, while their spouses and children shall present their marriage certificates and birth certificates, respectively. He likewise recommends they queue together for easier verification and processing. Thanks

Thanks Tom, now the site is starting to get reliable information on a few different type of visa's people use getting through the boarder, I'm not so muddled with procedures and can turn a deaf ear to all these experts. I expect the quarantine procedures will stay in place for awhile yet, ( there a money spinner, )  but aren't much of a worry according to Brett if you follow procedures. :cheersty: that's one I owe you.

Yes, Brett did a great job in laying out the procedures to be followed. BZ to Brett.

The people I know who went through it said the PRA are very helpful.

Maybe not since the Presidential adviser made this statement today. I wont post the whole story as this topic is more about the SRRV but thought I would mention it.

Philippines' travel protocols should be like Thailand's, says presidential adviser

Joey conception is the Presidential "economic" advisor. If we look at his past statements he has  consistently  been for relaxing or lowering barriers that interfere with business.

Unfortunately he has absolutely zero legislative or executive authority. But more power to him :thumbsup:

Am I correct in saying that I have to be actually in the Philippines to start the process with the PRA?
