Rapid Visa took all that guesswork out of the process, and held our hand through every step of the way.
They were able to answer every question I came to them with, and were able to work with my fiance in person when she visited two of their offices.
I have been writing on Live in the Philippines for two and a half years now, living here nearly three years. Read and learn as much about the culture and language as possible. Don’t believe that you are a wealthy target everywhere you walk.Before moving here, I lived in the Middle East, and traveled extensively in the developing world. Leave the walled, guarded compound once in a while.In that time, I’ve seen several patterns in the questions that people ask. In fact, I’m a big believer in that old cliche, “There is no such thing as a stupid question”. John Miele is a Citizen of the World, having spent time in many locations around the globe.An international move is a big undertaking, no doubt about it. Currently, he finds himself in Manila, but travels throughout the Philippines.We are so happy we found this site (RAPID VISA) it really help us a lot. Our friends asked us how we did the process we told them that RAPIDVISA helped us and of course by prayer.
They were very helpful and they answer all our questions. God has always a way to answer our prayers and he used this site. We started my k1 on September 2016 and I got here in US on May 2017 and got married June 2017 and I passed my last interview for my green card. Without the RAPID VISA we would have be more stressed and it would be difficult to get everything done .
Yet there are dozens of sites on the net giving “ways” to own land, will land, form corporations to control land, and so on.
There are almost always vehement, passionate disagreements about it, most of which I either ignore or say, “You can’t say that you weren’t warned”. Can you REALLY know someone by chatting on the Internet?
This is perhaps the biggest and most financially damaging mistake that expats can make. Yes, I know there are many successful Internet relationships. I also know many, many horror stories here from guys that come, fall in love, and get burned. Again, there are dozens of web sites filled with stories of people getting scammed.
EVERYONE in love says, “Yeah, but that won’t happen to me! Most of the guys who got burned thought the same thing.
I am not so rude as to tell someone that they are wrong, nor am I some “all knowing” being floating above the Astral Plane. This is stressed by myself and the other writers on this site over and over, yet I still receive many job inquiries. Thinking that you can buy land or work around the land laws: The obsession expats have with buying land is truly perplexing to me. Things tend to take on more importance when you live them every day. That belief is easily compounded on vacation or visits where things like hotels are cheaper than in the States. However, many things are more expensive here, and attempting to live a western lifestyle can get expensive very quickly. The Philippines is not Switzerland, Holland, Singapore, Hong Kong or a developed nation with large, wealthy expat or diplomatic community with small children.
