Visa for Treaty Trader

 

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.

 

How do you define a Treaty Trader?
 

A treaty trader is a foreigner who is entering the Philippines solely to carry on substantial trade or commerce between the Philippines and the country of which he is a national pursuant to an existing treaty of commerce and navigation. A treaty investor is foreigner who seeks admission for the purpose of developing and directing the operations of an enterprise in the Philippines where (a) he has invested or is actively in the process of investing a substantial amount of capital or where (b) his employer has invested or is actively in the process of investing a substantial amount of capital, provided that such employer is a foreign person or organization of the same nationality as the applicant and that the applicant is of an overall supervisor or executive.


Who Can Apply?
 

For instance, a Treaty trader visa applicant from the United States must establish that (a) he is proceeding to the Philippines solely for the purpose of carrying on substantial trade principally between the Philippines and the United States; (b) he intends in good faith, and will be able, to depart from the Philippines upon the termination of his status; and that (c) if he employed, his employer shall be foreign person or organization and shall be engage in duties of a supervisory and executive character, or if he is or is to be employed in a minor capacity, he has special qualification which makes his services essential to the efficient operations of the employer.
 

An applicant for treaty investor visa must establish, among others that (a) he seeks to enter the Philippines solely for the purpose of developing and directing the operations of an enterprise in the Philippines; (b) he seeks to enter the Philippines as a spouse or child of an alien (c) he is not applying for a nonimmigrant visa in an effort to evade the quota or other restrictions which are applicable to immigrants; (d) he intends in good faith, and will be able to depart from the Philippines upon the termination of his status; (e) the enterprise is one which actually exist or is in active process of formation, and is not a fictitious paper organization. Upon proper application, a duly approved application under Section 9(d) (Treaty Trade/Investor) shall be for one (1) year.
