    • Passport expiring less than 6 months before returning to the Philippines

      Philippines Jan 2, 2017 at 5:53 PM

      My family is going on a trip to Canada in April, but one of our member's passport is expiring in September, which would put it into less than 6 months validity. The travel agency told us that the passport only needs to be valid until you leave Canada, so she would have no problem on the trip there. But I read online that the Philippines requires that the passport needs to be valid for more than 6 months to enter. Will she have problems entering back to the Philippines? She is a permanent resident in the PH but is a Chinese citizen. The problem is that the agency told her that the Chinese embassy will not renew her passport if it's still more than 6 months valid, so we really cannot renew it ahead of time.

    • Seeking a 12 month or longer rental of a 1BD House/APT/Duplex in Olongapo City/Subic Bay

      by phpeters87 Online Now Aug 24, 2010 at 1:14 PM

      I'm an American ExPat in his early 60's and retired.

      I am not "rich Kano" but I would like to relocate to the RP, in particular, Subic/OC as it is far too expensive to live anywhere in the US on my modest Pension.
      I have made several trips to Subic and OC and I love it there and want to make it my home for the rest of my life.

      I'm seeking a SECURE, 1BD, 1 CR, with flushable toilet, and basic furnishings such as a bed, couch, rice cooker, TV, etc...
      I would also require AirCon.
      Hot water would be nice, but not necessary.
      Internet access via DSL or faster is a desirable.

      It could be a small house, an apt, a duplex, etc...except for a Nipa Hut or a share rental.(Bedspace, etc...)

      I will be living there alone, unless I end up married to one of the many beautiful Filipina's I always see when I visit the the RP islands.

      Depending on the area and the condition of the rental, my price range for the rental is between 7,000PhP - 11,250PhP per month, 12 Month Minimum, to be paid monthly by the 3rd of each month.
      I will also pay a reasonable cleaning deposit and the last month's rent in advance.

      I am seeking something fairly quiet, but close to downtown OC or preferably, Barrio Barreto near The National Highway in Subic
      Last time I was in Subic (2008) there was a lot of new home Construction/Subdivisions and Apts. being built.

      Pictures and details along with the address of the rental can be emailed to howardhuge@hushmail.com

      I have many ExPAt friends in Subic/Olongapo that can drive to the rental and, with your permission, take a look at it for me as I currently reside in the US but will re-locate to the RP as soon as suitable housing is obtained.

      Please keep in mind that I am very neat and clean and will have a lady come in and help me clean 2-3x per week, as well as have a lady come in and cook 2-3x per week, and I'm also very quiet.

      I am also very responsible, easy to get along with, and a model tenant.
      You will wish all of your renter's were like me.

      A parking space is not required, as I will travel via Trikes and Cabs and Walk for many of my outdoor activities, depending on where I will live.

      AirCon, Cleanliness, Fairly Quiet, Secure and Accessible to "town" are the most important elements in my search.

      Much thanks and "Mabuhay!"
