I talked with a buddy who lives in Angeles and he said you can do it at the Angeles Marquee Mall, it's located near the grocery store, here's a map short cut.

There is no medical for 13a. I just did my 13a a few months back.

My wife called both Angeles at the mall and the Clark "one stop shop" BI, both said they do not do 13A. It appears that we have to either go to Manila or Baguio.

Medicals are required for some, depending on what country you are from. You will have to check the list in the directions. It's at the BI website. USA is exempt, UK probably too but better to check to be on the safe side.

Just found my name on the approved list, so need to go pick mine up at the Iloilo Office. I had not bothered to look as the expected date was 23 Nov, but was reminded by this thread coming back up again and decided to look at the list, was approved 10 Nov.

Okay thanks for the update DonandAbby ... boy what a hassle so it seems like most of the satellite offices are for check ins and Visa extensions, kind of silly in a spot like Angeles where there are so many expats, how hard could it be to upgrade the money is there the place is always overfull with expats and Manila PBI is always crowded not to mention having to come back later to pick up your ID card, if only they had a mail service similar to the US embassy, they use Air21 for deliveries, door to door ... nope it's another long trip to Manila, food costs, van rental or take the bus, take the jeepney and taxi, what a waste of expat money initially and every 5 years.

I renewed earlier this year my costs to renew the card were 3,600 pesos, it's supposed to be $50 but always something missing it seems but I have my ACR card with chip? plus van rental 3,500 pesos x 2 = 7,000 pesos plus food costs x 2, 1000 pesos so total wasted expat pension money was = 12,600 pesos for a renewal.

On your receipt it gives you a date on when it should be approved. Mine was right on. They are slow in posting sometimes. Best to just give them a call.
Once you see your name on the BI website can we just report back to our original processing office to get my passport stamped or do I still have to wait for a text or phone call from them? Thanks in advance.

If you did not do it at the main office in Intramuros you need to allow time for the papers to get back to your filing office.

I made this mistake. I was on the list and headed over to Balanga City BI a couple of days later. Wasted trip that I could have avoided if I called them. They did call me a few days later to say they had it, but I don't know if that is standard practice at all offices. Give your office a call.

BTW, I don't see that I mentioned Balanga City BI in this thread. They were not listed then as doing 13A but my wife called them and they had just started a few months before. Nice small office that was uncrowded and easy to deal with.
