Hi Mikel,

Yes, this is still available. The PRA offers a special privilege for veterans. Your required deposit would only be $1500 and not $10,000. All you need to show is your DD214 or your Honorable Dismissal along with your proof of pension and police clearance from your country.

I see retired military, but I don't see just veterans. That would be sweet deal though. The Marketers that help with SRRV get paid by the PRA but they all seem to want a little extra. Maybe it's worth $300 , cause I don't really want $10,000 sitting in a bank here. Not liking being stuck with stuck with a condo either.
I like my girlfriend though, so this is where I will be.

Soon be applying so I will run it by the Marketer and see if I can get this since I am a veteran. Otherwise it's 1,400 + first Year fee 360 and the marketer 300 the one I was going to use. Plus 10,000 sitting in the bank,but interest is higher here than the US.

PiJoe, you'd want to contact the Philippine Consulate that works with your state here's a Consulate Finder Map Embassy of the Philippines - Consulate Finder Map It's best to get this information from them.

I did read the PRA guide and it has an SRRV Expanded Courtesy be at least 50 years old have a $1,000 a month pension and a deposit of $1500 for Veterans so DD-214 and every year a $360 fee. This is not listed on the PRA website but still offered at this time for former Veterans, I know another guy that has done this and I have a friend that's currently working on his from the Philippines, I haven't talked with him in a while though he is receiving VA lifetime assistance I guess a pension for injuries that occurred on active duty.

Thanks, that's the way to go..... I think the wording got me. You need to be retired, not necessarily retired from the military, just honorably discharged, retired, and on a pension greater than 1k/month. So it would pay for itself in 4 years financially and comes with some decent benefits. Thanks again....

Wow I served 5 years, honorable discharged, 2 pension total $2400 plus SS check 1650 and retired.
SRRV here I come, that's really great info. I will get My FBI background all electronic and fast I hope in April when I fly home. Stop at The New consulate in Houston get it stamped. Dig out My DD 214 and I already have income verification letters. That SRRV will make everything so much easier.
