London has currently suspended issueing 13a visas And I believe 9a is a single entry not multi entry visa.

How can one embassy have a different immigration rule than the others if they're all subject to the same national BI policy?

Why I wouldn't go by the national policy and go by what my country's local Philippine embassy says as that's who you're going to for a visa. I'm sure each has its own rules based on local conditions.

They can't make up their own rules, it's an embassy following protocols of the Philippines, "local" doesn't apply. Maybe the BI itself decided to reject Londoners, who knows.

Right, local country rules/requirements as specified by the BI...my implication wasn't clear.

Except we have the national policy here

So if someone was denied it was probably for a personal reason, like they failed to provide documents.

You guys are all over the place.

During Covid, it might be possible that some Philippines embassies don't do this or that because of restricted staffing, etc. Just like the U.S. Embassy in Manila has limited capabilities right now.

That being said, I think 13A is not being processed at any Philippine Embassies right now, due to temporary Covid measures. You can apply for 13A after you get back to the Philippines, at BI.

To get back to the Philippines, if you are married to a Filipino or have Filipino kids, the embassy will issue you a 9A ONE YEAR MULTIPLE ENTRY visa. Yes, ONE YEAR MULTIPLE. See attached picture.

So the big question becomes can you get that within the Philippines.
