Wilma is concerned about her German husband and whether he can stay long term in the Philippines.
Here is Wilma’s question:
I am a Filipina live here in Germany and we my husband and my daughter who was born 2009 are planning this year to stay in Philippines for good. I would like to know of my husband can stay there in Phil. a long time without a visa? What shall we do regarding of his stay or living in the Philippines? Actually we live in Davao City.
And, here is Bob’s reply to Wilma:
Since your husband is not a Philippine Citizen, he must have a Visa of some kind to stay here. For a long term stay, why not have him get a 13(g) Resident Visa? With that he can stay here as long as he wants with no problems or need for check-in every 2 months or so. You daughter has no need for that, as she is eligible to be a Philippine Citizen.
Enjoy your Philippine vacation, Wilma!
