Well you can do all this before you arrive here and then you won't have the one year probationary issue to work around.

Not sure you have a Philippine Consulate in Argentina and it says you are from Afghanistan so you might end up doing it all here, because you need some sort of police read out from the area you have lived in at least 2 years if not you can do what's called an NBI clearance here in the Philippines after living here 6 months so you'll be doing allot of running around Manila it sounds unless you can some how get this all accomplished in Argentina.

I had my 13a Visa completed through the mail with the Philippine Consulate in the US and it took about 2 months they had questions, yes you'll need to get all the forms and a complete physical performed by who ever the Philippine Consulate recommends if they have no one then the requirement is for a Medical Doctor M.D.

Once that completed you are not done, you carry your package with you to the Philippines, you do get the 13a Visa stamp in your passport but have within 1-2 weeks to report to the PBI upon arrival and get your Immigrant card, once this is completed you have to come back a couple weeks to a couple months to get your Immigrant card, ugh... it's a process here, so hopefully you won't be living to far from Manila.

I am taking all my documents with me to the Philippines and want to submit them in Manila. Just wondering of the time frame and cost also.

The requirements and costs are different if I submitted them in the UK or New Zealand so I want to submit them in the Philippines.

If it takes longer than 30 days I have a problem but if it only take 7 days all good.

It does not state the time frame on the website.

Anything that you can do in your home country will be a vast benefit in any visa or immigration attempt.
Remember that the only thing that is reliable or dependable in the Philippines -- is that NOTHING is reliable or dependable here in the Philippines--period.
If you are wanting a married immigrant visa for someone to be able to leave the Philippines to live elsewhere it can take between 18 months to two (2) years for approval. A fiancee visa will take at least 90 days.

Wishing you the very best of luck but you need to know and understand that the Philippines is an underdeveloped 3rd world country where time and efficiency mean virtually nothing at all..

Thanks Jet but are married. My wife has full CFO stickers and certificate etc.

The reasons for the visa is to allow me to live in the Philippines rather than keep paying visa extension fees. 9250 peso eatery extra 59 days.

Thus I am applying with my Filipino wife for a

- Conversion to Non-quota immigrant visa by marriage

Just trying to get the heads up because people here have been through this process.

Inloved in the Philippines 6 months so I do understand your points raised.

Any help is very much appreciated.
