Nobody has posted yet, I do have short cut for the PBI Philippine Bureau of Immigration and they are located in Manila.

The Bureau of Immigration, Philippines Official Website - MAIN

I have heard of at least 3 ways from other expats on this board
1. Marry a girl hear and go the route for your 13a Visa
2. Deposit $50,000 in a Philippine bank or I think??? (Not sure on this one) buy a Condominum worth $50,000 in order to full fill the retirement visa.
3. Some expats are claiming that the Tourist Visa is a better option, hopefully they can expand on this one.

Hi Clareman,

Use caution with the Immigration website. It has interesting information but much of it is outdated as they seldom make much of an effort to keep it updated. Might be a good idea to visit Immigration in person and get the latest requirements and information to play it safe..

The 13 Visa mentioned by Balut does not apply to a single, foreign citizen who applies for residency first time or is not married to a Filipina or was previously a Filipino citizen.
Either way, never mind what visa you choose, DOLE must always approve your employment here seperately from BI and only if BI grants you a 9g visa.
Further remember that you do not have many rights here as a foreigner never mind what visa you have. I own condos, cars etc.. and have all the rights I need.
I can not recommend to pay for the Retirement Visa unless you got too much money, there are really no benefits to it.
Good luck.
Good info and advice Capt,,,Thanks..
