  1. So you are leaving and I’m coming. Seems backwards. If you would get your 13A visa, you wouldn’t have to be inconvenienced every year (on someone elses schedule). Don’t know when I’ll make it to Bagacay, probably after we get settled in. You should be back by then. Have a fun trip on that bus! 😉

    1. I thought about that 13A, but not sure about it really. I guess since I don’t really know how to get started it kind of scares me to try to figure it out.
      I heard it takes a bit of money to get it all accomplished too and we need to wait before we can do that.

      1. The process to get your 13A visa is not that bad. And the cost…well you spend more on taking annual trips than the cost of the visa. In the long run, it’s just better.

        1. I’d definitely go with the 13a. I had a rough time getting mine (chronicled on my page), but in the long run it looks to definitely be worth it.

          The cost really isn’t all that much, either. I mean, 150 is nothing to sneeze at, but definitely a time and headache sdown the road… Especially in comparison to traveling back and forth.

          1. Howdy Trick. Thanks for checking out my site. A special thank you for taking the time to leave a comment. I will be checking out your site (I already have it in another tab) and will be leaving comments on there for you. So far all I have seen is “Everything is on Filipino Time”, but I’ll do some more digging after I finish my comment answering. I hope my blog will help you out in some way. I’ll be looking forward to hearing more from you in the future.

          2. Something I discovered since I first answered your comment is that you only have 1 entry on your blog so far. It’s a good entry though, I enjoyed the story and it could be helpful to some people trying to get their 13A or anything from the embassy. Do you have a list of all the things that were required to get that 13A? That could be helpful also.
            I also should have said that although it does cost more to leave the country once a year instead of getting a 13A, I rather look forward to departing for awhile. Of course if I had the 13A I could still leave, but I wouldn’t be on a timetable as to when to go.
            I just added your site to my Expat Sites. I hope it brings you more traffic.

  2. On Friday, USD to Peso hit 44, so a lot of people who had USD were converting or having relatives in US transfer money to their peso accounts and withdrawing it.
