I have gotten messages from both PRA and PBI, and yes they are two different agencies, that state that I am exempt form the ECC with an SRRV.
However still noting on an official web site that explicitly states that. Nothing on an official letterhead. As we all know even with an explicit statement, often an official will have an idea and not let facts sway him from his position.
The Philippines is not at all unique in that.
Has any SRRV holder left the country after more than 6 months?
What were your experiences?
I may be reading too much into this but even for an engineer I am kind of known for being anal retentive about some things. lol
