Sounds more and more to me like its so much easier to just keep using Balikbayan status except for the annual trip to reset it. Besides that hassle is there any real advantage to getting something permanent? Besides banking locally and maybe local health insurance? I guess those are biggies though.
If you are married to a filipina you will be covered by her Philhealth and not all branches, note I said branches, require an ACR. Otherwise just get a join accoint with the mrs.
