Philippine Immigration

 

Guzman Taņedo & Acain assists foreign nationals obtain all kinds of visas before the Philippine Bureau of Immigration and Deportation.  The details of our Philippine Immigration services are as follows:

 

:: Obtaining visas for newly hired employees

 

We help employers apply for a pre-arranged employment or 9(g) visas and Alien

Employment Permit for their new hires. We also help employers secure Provisional Permit to work for their new hires from foreign countries. We also assist employers extend or renew the working visas for their existing employees or apply for a change of status to a new visa category.

 

:: Visa extension for tourist visitors and

    changing the status of admission

 

We assist Tourists extend their period of stay in the Philippines and Change the Status of their admission from Tourist to a new visa. For example, 9(g) Employment visa, Special Investors Resident Visa (SIRV) Retirement Visa or  immigrant visa by reason of marriage to a

Filipino 13(a).

 

:: Obtaining special visas for former Filipino

    Citizens and reacquisition of Filipino

    Citizenship

 

We assist former Filipino citizens apply for a  Balikbayan visa or be Recognized as Filipino. This is to avoid the inconvenience of extending Tourist Visas before the Bureau of Immigration every month. Balikbayan visa allows former Filipino citizens to stay in the Philippines for a period of one year without the required monthly extension of stay.

 

Our firm is also taking an active role in assisting former Filipino Citizens reacquire their Filipino Citizenship after  the passage of Republic Act 9225 or the Citizenship Retention and Reacquisition Act of 2003 (Dual Citizenship).

 

:: Immigration Litigation

 

We render legal assistance to foreign nationals who are arrested by the operatives of the Bureau of Immigration. Our services include but not limited to the filing a Petition for Bail and Voluntary Deportation or Habeas Corpus. Our concern is for the immediate release of the detainee in the most convenient and expeditious manner.

 

:: Lifting of the person's name in the Bureau's

    Blacklist

 

A person can be blacklisted by the Bureau of Immigration for reasons such as, that: he/she is an undesirable alien; likely to become a public charge; overstaying alien; and other violations of the Philippine Immigration Law. If your name is included in the blacklist, you cannot anymore enter or leave the country. You will be arrested by immigration agents if you attempt to do so. If this unfortunate event does happen, your only remedy is to file a Petition before the Bureau of Immigration that your name be removed from the blacklist.

 

Our Firm assists foreign nationals whose names were included in the Immigration Black List and those persons who were barred from re-entering the Philippines. We will take advantage of the legal process by filing a Petition to Lift the Order of Black List in order to remedy this situation. Through this legal process, our Firm has already caused the removal of some names of foreign nationals in the bureau's blacklist. Our Firm has a proven track record on this aspect of immigration litigation and reference of alien nationals who were successfully represented by our Firm can be provided upon request.
