Question for anyone who has applied for Philippines AEP permit and 9G visa themselves?

2 posts in this topic

Hi All

I am from Australia and have been emailing back and forth with a company in quezon city about a job opportunity in my field.

Im hitting stone walls asking in-depth questions on the AEP and 9G visa process with the local consulate so have reached out to the forums for some firsthand experience & advice.

The challenge is the company that is offering the opportunity is relatively small and thus do not have the time or resources to arrange submission of the Alien Employment Permit AEP forms and then subsequently the 9G PRE-ARRANGED EMPLOYMENT VISA.

So basically the job is 95% mine if I can do the leg work and secure the above.

I know I need the company to get involved but can anyone who has been through the process themselves help with my questions below please?

1)

Has anyone successfully applied and received AEP while not actually being in the Philippines?

How did you do this? (im still waiting for answer from local consulate)

Some websites suggest you can apply for your AEP through local consulate/embassy, instead of the most common statement being the DOLE office in ph.

I understand the but the 9G visa can really only be applied for when actually in the country… but to lessen my risk (risk of having AEP denied), Im holding out to have the AEP approved before relocating and then applying for the 9G visa.

2)

Has anyone had their AEP denied?

Is it likely a 9G pre employment visa can be rejected by BI even if AEP is approved by the DOLE dept?

Im trying to find out how rigorously does the DOLE scrutinise and test section 10 of AEP application

For example, if I secure the employment contract and am formally offered the job – then take the big step to sell my things in Australia, resign my current job and move to the Philippines .

If the AEP and/or 9G visa is denied I will essentially have to return to Australia to no job, no apartment etc, tail between my legs.

I will be bringing my unique experience to this potential job position but as this being a foreign country and government i know i cant assume to how this is accepted and influences approval or denial of the AEP

Or the other more difficult hedged approach I see is to secure holidays from my current Job (in late April or start of may), fly to Philippines, action the applications and then resign via email if all goes through fine.

3)

Can anyone help with the below requirements for the AEP and 9g? Anyone have a template they could send me? Or ideally a copy of the documents you used? As i then just have to tell the local company to insert their letterhead and details.

AEP

- Simple question, but what do they mean by application form “duly notarized”?

- Letter of request sent to DoLE – anyone have template/copy they could pls send me?

- Contract of Employment/Appointment – anyone have template/copy of a local filo employment contract? I believe i can push the company for this though

9G

- Letter request from the petitioner/organization – anyone have template/copy?

- Bureau of Immigration Clearance Certificate? How is this secured? Or is it part of the process when applying for 9G at the BI in the Philippines?

- Other supporting documents which will aid in the evaluation of the

Application - any advice? The job is product management, i.t marketing.

Sorry for all the questions above, but I have really come to a dead end on this.

I appreciate any feedback, templates etc anyone can provide on the above.

This challenge still has not dampened my enthusiasm to secure the job and

move to the Philippines , but its a hurdle.

Feel free to Pm with a reply if you wish.

Thank you

Brendan

Well...

i have not personally been employed here. But, I know several who have and the employer did 100% of EVERYTHING.

You must remember that optimistic talk is just being polite in the PI.

Generally speaking, only locals can pay lubrication in the PI. It will take for sure additional, non receipted payments, in order for you application to be "processed".

You will need to show up for an interview in your own place. But is scheduled by the embassy after the papers are processed.

Just take a week off from your job and go there... work things out.

      Well put BBB. I dont watch TV much, but there was a British program on here in NZ that caught my eye. It was called 'Skint'. Of course it was a program made for TV and you only get the most extreme parts fed to you, but my partner was horrified. She was not horrified at the way the people behaved, altho that was bad enough (blame the TV camera's) but she could not get her head around how these supposed poor people had houses, massive TV's, smoked, drank and could afford to buy drugs, furniture, washing machines etc etc...... She asked me "How can they be poor"?. Its hard trying to explain to some one that grew up with literally nothing and was dragged around the country by her parents while they looked for work until she was 8 years old, living in what she calls 'Camp sites" ie no house, family sleeping in the same room on the floor, you guys know what I am talking about. So I,m with you BBB, I have little to no sympathy.

      If you want a 'good' throw away phone you might be better trying to pick something up second hand.

      This is just regular Skype calls to a landline at a cheap rate. I have the option of setting my caller-ID as my mobile number (they send a verification message) or leaving it blank. Obviously it's better to have a caller-ID for most purposes.
