Once you get the 13a you have to get a special re-entry permit, to keep your 13a current while out of the country. I forget the cost (I have yet to get one) I think it is close to p3,000. For him it would cost a lot more. Since I rarely leave the country it is not an issue for me.
hi Guys

Does anyone have any recent knowledge of the Special Re Entry Permit, first I have heard about it

Thanks

Thanks!

What website do I use?
Thank you!
There's so much to know basically about your marital status in order for us to help you, if you are already married to a Philippine citizen then you'd want to take care of your 13a Visa stateside and you can do this through the mail with the Philippine Consulate that works with your state, here's a link: Embassy of the Philippines - Consulate Finder Map

They have the forms on their website for download or if you can't find them ask for the link.

If you plan on doing the 13a Visa here it's can be done but it takes much longer you start out with a 1 year probationary and then you apply again for the 13a Visa, here's the link for the forms you will use in the Philippines, Conversion to Non-Quota Immigrant Visa by Marriage these forms aren't standardized and a real pain, If you can complete the process stateside I would do so because once you arrive in the Philippines it's gonna be costly messing with Visa's, I have a link for download form from Chicago I couldn't find the forms in California but use this as an example of what you will be filling out stateside http://www.chicagopcg.com/forms/newimmigrantform.pdf

Bottom line if you can accomplish this stateside it can be done in less than a couple months maybe even sooner I had two circumstances I had to deal with, one was I needed my wife's original divorce decree certified and the other was a medical condition and I needed a letter from my doctor and so it took me two months and did this through the mail system but with all your documents in order it can be done very quickly, if you wind up here and doing it and are missing documents from the states it can take months.

Another thing to think about is your US Passport up to date or about to expire, I'd get that done first and then when you mail in your package to the Philippine Consulate that works with your state you'll have that 13a Visa stamp in a passport good for 10 years, no biggie you can get the US Passport done here through the US Embassy in Manila.

Pegasus, are you married? Have a prospective lady that you wish to marry or are clutching at straws?
For the more experienced members on this and other sites like this one, more info is needed for those to be able to advise/give their experiences to you. Not trying to to pry but God helps those who help themselves.

Cheers, Steve.
