I have done a lot of internet searching and found sites that state the exemption. However, the PRA is not one of those sites. But their website is full of bad links that take you nowhere. I am still trying to get more information from the PRA.

I visit the USA once or twice a year and always fly PAL in/out of SFO. I have done this for the past 8 years and always found the Philippines air lines staff there to know the rules. They require a residence card or onward ticket. You will not have any troubles with your SRRV, just show them your card.

Thanks Tony, this is exactly the type of feedback/information that I was looking for. Anyone else out there with SRRV visa have the same experience as tony.

I saw the statement on their website about this particular perk a few years ago. I just checked and I did not find it there. They have done a terrible job of keeping up their site.

You stated that you have a friend with an SRRV that had the same issue. Has it happened to him multiple times? How does he deal with it?

Any other experiences on this subject out there?
Sorry for the late reply. He travels with his documents always he was questioned by Cathay for not having a return tcket and after showing his resident Id it was ok. Every now and then he gets asked can't blame others cause every now and then rules change.
Just travel with your documents it will help.

Thanks for asking some of your friends. I just want to verify what documents that you are referring to. I always travel with my SRRV PRA ID card. My passport is stamped with the information for my SRRV. Is there anything else that I need to carry ? That is pretty much all you get from the PRA other than a receipt for the application fee. Maybe I am worrying over nothing and will be just fine as long as I have my resident ID with me.

I am still working on getting some sort of a document from the PRA that states their policy. As you can imagine, it is not so easy. My PRA contact did tell me that all the SRRV holders that he deals with usually purchase one way tickets.

Thanks to all that gave input on this subject!!

That is all you need. They usually ask if you have an id to prove your residency Cathay to be specific. I have posted an email address in here of BI you can write to them if you want or thru FB phili Bureau if Immigration and they do reply. I posted the email add as a reply to the guy asking about his 13g.
