I think it's called a time warp. Stuck somewhere between discovery of the wheel and space flight---and never knowing exactly which end of the spectrum they belong or are most comfortable.
Hmmm- you caught me on my "cynical Sunday." Hahaha...

Redundant is a nice word for antiquated. Still using Green Records books as ledgers. Upon arrival at any facility is when you find out the true requirements. My wife and I had our marriage certificate authenicated and had a copy from the NSO National.Statistics Office. When we got to PBI we were told that we need the new green copy not the yellow one. Even though it was stamped by a notary.
Sometime the left and right hands are not connected. .

Yes, Nila and I went to the BI office in Intramuros and sat in front of the building where they did this, I.D. Photo, finger printing, etc., then we went inside to pay the fee. Even for the annual renewal, they make you fill out an application form. we did this anyway because we had an address change and this needed to be reported with the BI. I still have the original ACR card that I received in the beginning of my permanent residency.

Is the Condo sellers inside the building this year too? LOL and that door on the left side the building wide open even though you are required to go through a security inspection, you just can't make this stuff up it's very real.

I did this outside in front of the PBI building in Intramuros. You can also probably get everything taken care of in Batangas, and Pala-Pala. Intramuros has many people there and lines can be very long.

I have thought about using that area but if you need a new card they send you to Manila IAW information I've read on the PBI website, my wife claims that the traffic is just as bad and the travel time not any shorter but I've never been to Batangas.

Yes, they required me to do it this year. It took a total of about 2 to 2 1/2 hours to complete. Lines were very long at the PBI Intramuros. Fortunately, as a disabled EXPAT I got special treatment and went through the line fast and sat in a chair 95% of the time.

How much money did it run you this year... Was there an added charge for the other forms and requirements?

Well, it gets better this year. Now they have changed the form, required a new sized photo and the new form has to be notarized. I ran all over Baguio Jan 6th trying to find a notary. The twelfth (12) lawyer I found finally had his commission that did not expire 31 Dec 2013. Think about that. And then the computers wouldn't work and had to go back on the 7th to get the receipt and the card back. Immigration did not even consider that most notaries commissions expire at the end of the year and the fact the computers were down, duh, did Annual Report season just slip up on them? They didn't know? After ten years of this stuff, I shouldn't be surprised, but I was. And they did not tell anybody of these new requirements......

That is too funny. A pain in the butt, but funny. They want expats to retire here but they keep adding cost. Bad Guys Out Good Guys In program is so funny. Do they honestly believe that Bad Guys are going to rush up and legitimize their stay. When they give you the run around like this. Someone is just pocketing money here. But what can we do except accept it and look forward to next years circus.
