13a visa annual report from abroad? or downgrade the visa?
« on: August 18, 2017, 10:31:24 AM »
Hello,

I lived and worked in the Philippines and obtained a 13a visa; this was mostly the idea of my employer, who could avoid the hassle of obtaining work visas for me if I had the 13a. However, I got a new job outside the Philippines, and I moved out of the PI with my Filipina wife family about a month ago. 

I am wondering if I can somehow keep the 13a visa without having to return to the Philippines every year to do the annual report, or if it would be better simply to downgrade to a tourist visa the next time I am in the Philippines. I might find work in the Philippines some time in the unforeseeable future, and I plan to visit the PI at times, but not every year. Any thoughts or related experience on this?

Thanks!
