ACRs come from Manila and they will not start making them until the paperwork is completed. Once your 13A is approved and you receive and sign the paperwork is when they start working on your ACR card. Took me 3 weeks to get my card after I signed my 13A approval paperwork.

Understand that, but if the Visa is approved then the ACR should be accomplished and issued at the same time. The ACR is paid for at the time of application and the bio metrics done upon completion of the interview before departing the BI main office. Just a matter of tweaking the system. Oh forgot this is the Phils!

Yes so true bidrod when I was processing my papers for 13A I also applied for a new ARC card as well. The lawyer who checked all my papers said to my wife and I "It is a long way to travel from Isabela for an interview, so we will do that today as well" which made us very happy as its about a 14 hour bus ride to Manila. I was going to give the BI till mid November to see if my name appears online, if not I will go to Manila The BI have been very slow at posting results on their website as the last entry was 14th Oct. Thanks to all for your input

Guess that is where I am now at, waiting for my name to appear on the BI website list. Even at that, as I understand it is only probationary for a year and the process will have to be done again.

Yes that is true fmartin gila when you see your name on their (BI) website you will also see the date the one tear probation expires, I have been told to reapply again one month prior to expiration date. I have to ask BI when I go there to get my ARC card about what happens next, I have been told once you receive a permanent status you report to your BI regional office once a year Jan - Feb, but I will enquire later concerning this, best of luck mate

Has anyone completed the 13A process at BI Pampanga? According to the BI website this is one of the offices that can do it. Can the entire process be completed at one of these offices, without a visit to Manila?

Was this recently? The reason I ask is because they had me fill up the application in duplicate, one for the 13A and the other for the ACR and both turned in at the same time at the same office.

So far I have been able to do it all at my local BI in Iloilo so I can only assume that you should be able to do it there too.
