Hi Everyone
« on: December 13, 2017, 11:14:55 AM »
Iím Barry, in PH at the moment, but moving for good from the UK in several months.  Very few expats appear to live where I plan to move to; Alaminos City, Pangasinan, I like it here, itís very near to 100 Islands with plenty of places to explore.

Iím just going through the motions of applying for the SRRV retirement visa.

Barry, welcome to our friendly group. If and when you have time, maybe comment on the process of getting your SRRV in our
Visa Section so others can learn from your process and it would be great to hear more about that area of the Philippines in the proper sections too.

Welcome Barry!

We seem to have a few things in common - both from UK for a start - most here are from USA and ex-mil.

Funnily enough I had earmarked the 100 island area for out "retirement recce" trip in Jan - it looks really nice and you are right, I think it's a less popular area with expats. In the end though we decided to head south this trip and do the Negros circuit. I think on a subsequent trip we will visit 100 island area.

BTW I had been looking into SRRV too - which one were you going for, Classic? Smile?

I have earmarked a trip to the SRRV office in January as I had a few concerns about the visa deposit/visa deposit transfer. If you want to swap notes let me know.

Cheers,
Tony

Hi Tony,

Yes, youíre right about having brut expats to compare notes, I have had to Ďsuck it and seeí with most things I needed to know about.

For me, it had to be Alaminos City for my retirement, as my fiancť needs to be near her work. I have to say that Pangasinan has some great beaches and places to visit, well worth looking into for retirement.

I collected my Classic SRRV on Friday, anything you want to know about the visa, just ask, I will be only too happy to oblige.

Regards
Barry

Hi Barry,

Thanks for that info - always useful to know. Congrats on your SRRV Classic. I will PM you if I get any questions - I am shortly heading to the Philippines and will be visiting PRA so I hope they can clear up any outstanding questions I have.

All the best, and congrats on your retirement to Philippines.

Cheers,
Tony
