These 3 methods were disclosed to me by more than one agency when seeking a solution to my particular problem. They all admitted that they were illegal when I questioned the legality.

1. Blocking. Essentially, the marriage is expunged from PSA records.

2. Sharia law. I am assuming that the record of marriage is altered to read Muslim. Muslims as you know can have more than one wife.

3. Presumption of death. Not sure how that works, but I assume PSA records will show that the husband/wife has died.

These were openly divulged by agencies, not by some nefarious individual. All illegal, but apparently work with no problem.

As long as you pay the person or persons doing it. I guess it would be substantial. Recently I tried to get something done at the LTO to avoid a lot of hassle and expense with a vehicle. Someone there offered to do it but in the end I decided it was not worth the large amount of money asked and just live with the risks of keeping it as it is.
And what if it all backfired, the employee found out to be altering records? Then traced back to you?

Hi there, thank you for the reply, so once you have the 13 A visa, you dont have to keep renewing your tourist visa, correct. Also, how often do you have to renew the 13A visa and the approx cost of everything.

Thank you
Warren

The 13A replaces the tourist visas and lasts as long as the marriage does. No renewal,. just a simple annual report to be done Jan/Feb each year. There's a probationary year before you get the permanent 13A visa. Total cost about P25k if you add everything up

Don't forget that the ACR card has to be renewed every 5 years.

Ah ok, what about leaving the country and re- entering, is it still valid. Also, what is the cost of the annual report.
Thank you so much I really appreciate it

Still valid. You pay about PhP 1,600 travel tax at the airport.
AR fee is peanuts.

Why have you started a new thread on the same topic?
To get a 13A visa takes 2 applications a year apart and each one requires preparation of documents and multiple office visits.
It's the Philippines! Told you the approx cost already.
You have enough information now on this.

Annual Report costs P310. If you leave the country apart from the P1600 Travel Tax,; you pay P1800 at the airport, showing your ACR-I card and passport. you are given a receipt. Said receipt is shown on return, together with your ACR-I card and passport. Your passport is stamped to that effect. When you next make your Annual Registration, you will need a photocopy of this page.
