There is "Non-Quota" visa which is available also for Foreign citizens married to Filipino ...This Non-Quota visa gives an automatic permanent residency to foreign citizens ...This is the easy option for foreign citizens (married to Filipino) who want to live in the Philippines permanently and I think this is renewable every 5 years.

It's already listed on the OP, under immigrat qouta available also as a nonimmigart qouta.

iamjames:
Thanks Gray. I'll have to consider the options. Marriage is the easy one but only as a last resort!

Art, just a re(tired) Fil-Am:
What is not mentioned on the list is the Special SRRV for the U.S. retired military who have at least served a tour of duty in the Philippines for at least 2 years and the bank security deposit is only $1,500 compared to the regular $10,000 deposit!
