Just how long have you been here then? It looks like you came here to exist on visa runs and its not working out. However Cebu is nice and I have good friends there.

long enough dude.

 

ive had many types of visa. up until may I was on a retirement visa, before that a marriage visa, before that a business visa and so on and so on.

 

Ive just had enough bro, it's getting silly now.

Surely the Philippines does have some advantages over Thailand, the main one being you are not required to have this 800,000 baht tied up in a bank, no 3 month reporting and only costing around $130 a year to renew your extension and the cost of living is much cheaper AFAIK.

Good luck to the op.

Yes the baht is the main problem, putting added pressure on folk .Which country does give the best return for, say, the AUD?

Isn't it a violent, crime-ridden hell-hole with shit food?

I'm not an expert on The Philippines BB, never been, having said that Thai food hardly rocks my boat.

having to report your presence to immigration everytime you return home from an overnight trip to another town is beyond ludicrous.

I agree. Thankfully as a retiree with my own condo I dont have to do it. But if I did have to do it I would consider it an unnecessary imposition and it would encourage me to look elsewhere.

 

The whole thing is made even more ridiculous when you consider that if you carry a mobile phone the government knows where you are at all times, to within a few hundred yards. The TM30 offers no such guarantee of accuracy at all. It is just a pointless bit of paperwork.

Some folk live nowhere near an immigration office...

That's hardly the fault of the immigration people. Anyway, the OP didn't say that this was his problem.

 

(I know things ain't perfect - I'm as affected as anyone else.)
