THank you. There ar emany questions, mainly abouyt the SRRV visa. I reside in Australia and anticipate moving to Dumaguete, I will be applying via an Agent, to guide me through this process.
The questions are as follows: Assuming that all the documents are correct and complete, how long do Ineed to be in attendance, in Manila, before the SRRV and related documents are issued?
What is the preferred Bank, or reccomended bank to use for the SRRV visa?
If, my single status changes, how does tis affect the SRRV visa and the USD 10k "bond" etc
SHipping of my minimum house hold goods. I am selling all my furniture etc and only bringing my bed and clothing. What shippig, from Australia to Dumaguete is recommended?

THank you

Several expats on this forum have gone through this I haven't so hopefully they can recommend a bank for you I do have some links from previous discussions and an SRRV guide and also shipping items to the Philippines.

Your mileage may vary but I was 28 days start to finish.

I applied on Monday after arriving on Saturday.

There are only a select few banks that are allowed to accept SRRV deposits. I used BDO and have no issues with them.

Cannot help you on personal experience on change of status but it is my understanding that you would need to reapply and repay the 1400 application fee. I would only change if you got married and wanted your spouse to be your dependent on the SRRV.

Never shipped anything to Philippines, just my checked luggage.
