Default SRRV deposit

This came from the PRA Office on requirements to be able to only deposit $1500 for the SRRV visa. I have no ideal how some of the guys are getting by not meeting the requirements.

READ BELOW!!!!!

Dear Mr. Art,

Greetings from the Philippine Retirement Authority!

We would be glad to assist you in your SRRVisa application inquiry. This visa if obtained would provide the holder multiple entry and permanent residency privilege in the Philippines.

In order to qualify under the Expanded Courtesy scheme with required deposit under PRA of US$1,500.00, you need to be a Retired/Service Military personnel (country with diplomatic ties with the Philippine Government eg. US, British, Australian etc), 50 years old and above, (not necessary stationed or served Philippines) with the following documents – over and above the regular requirements:



1. DD Form- 214 or Honorable Discharge Certificate from the Military Service;

2. Proof of Pension or Certificate of not less than US$1,000.00 monthly (SSS or other organization)

3. Police Check/FBI or certificate of no criminal conviction (if stay in the Philippines less than 1 year) or Barangay Certificate (if stay in the Philippines 5 years and up)



Please be advised that documents issued in abroad must be authenticated/apostiled (see apostile convention policy) from the originating country where documents were issued.



It is advised that you get in touch for clarifications and proper guidance.

Attached information and necessary forms for your reference.

For further concerns, please feel free to coordinate.


Best regards,

Sky Lachica

Very good so this also applies to other countries as indicated above. Here's where the trouble lies or the costs, if you do it from here then the US Embassy must research and the cost per document is $50 to get a certification as true copies, but... If all documents are run through the Philippine Consulate or Embassy of your country of origin then that would save you a whole bunch of money and get the ball rolling much faster, you'd be bringing a package that the Philippine Consulate has already approved so all that's left is your bank deposit and fees.

Okay, I just got 'another email response from PRA/Subic Bay. She said here are the requirements to qualify for the Expanded Courtesy SRRV VISA with a $1500 deposit.

1. must have the DD214 with honorable discharge from military.
2. proof of pension with at least $1,000 a month.
3. the clearances and etc are all standard procedure.

that is not bad to get the SRRV visa. $1400 application+$360 first year+$1500 deposit for the first time.

I sure hope Americans living in the Philippines with visas are safe. Hope the visas aren't rescinded like the visitor pact with the militiary. the president seems to be able to do whatever he wants to. He might take it out on the Americans there just because he is mad at our government.

I was told that there were about 50,000 SRRV holders here, If the average deposit is 10,000 that is a half billion in foreign reserves transferred into the Philippines. The average will be higher than that as that is just about the minimum deposit except for the ex military/diplomatic category.

Add in the investor category and US based business interests and the amount will be much higher.

It would really be shooting themselves in the foot if they revoked a high number of these visas and actually had to pay out this money.

Hey Manitoba,

I agree with you about the revenue brought into the Philippines by the Foreign visa holders. But, I think the leader might shoot himself in the foot and cancel them just from spike. hahahha

Only a side note but all of the above? Revenues/investments etc from foreign nationals mean diddly squat if China gets it's foot in the door, half open already waiting for the cash that will flow in and far beyond what any western investors could dream of, slowly the wheels turn from a clever regime to a perhaps gullible participant or even a different agenda? As another member submitted, be prepared to learn Mandarin.
Blacklist mode? I hope not as it's only a plebeians observation.

Cheers, Steve.
