Overview of Our Services

 

Our Firm  evaluates and, if complete, endorses the application to the Philippine Retirement Authority for the issuance of the visa. We will also help the applicant complete and/or prepare the documentary requirements if necessary.

 

What is the SRRV?

The Special Resident Retiree's Visa (SRRV) is issued by the Bureau of Immigration (BI) of the Republic of the Philippines under the Retirement Program of the Philippine Retirement Authority (PRA) to foreigners and overseas Filipinos. It entitles the holder to multiple-entry privileges with the right to stay permanently/indefinitely in the Philippines.

Who may apply?

A. Citizenship

1. Any foreign national, except those nationals of countries with which the Philippines does not have diplomatic relations and those nationals considered restricted by the Department of Department of Foreign Affairs (DFA).
2. Overseas Filipinos who are immigrants or under a visa category allowing them legal stay abroad and have resided therein continuously for at least seven (7) years, prior to their application for enrolment in the Program and should not have stayed a maximum total of sixty (60) days in a year in the Philippines.

B. Age/Deposit Requirements

All foreign nationals below 50 and at least 35 years of age are required to deposit the amount of US$75,000.00 dollars with any PRA short-listed bank. Those aged 50 and above are required to deposit the amount of US 50,000 dollars. Former Filipinos who are now holders of foreign passports are required to deposit US 1,500.00 dollars; the deposit amount of US50,000.00 shall be required from an applicant who is at least 35 years of age and belongs to any of the following:
