Megaworld Makati Offers Special Resident Retirement Visa (SRRV) Assistance

Special Resident Retirement Visa (SRRV) is a privilege granted to foreigners who would like to have a permanent resident status in the Philippines. For investing in the Philippines, foreigners can enter and leave the country as many times and as long as one wishes, including family members. With a Special Resident Visa, a holder can live, do business, study in the Philippines indefinitely.

The Special Resident Retiree’s Visa (“SRRV”) is a visa issued by the Bureau of Immigration through the Philippine Retirement Authority (“PRA”). The SRRV is a special non-immigrant visa that provides its holders with multiple-entry privileges and indefinite stay in the Philippines and is especially designed for those who wish to live in the Philippines on an extended or permanent basis.

It is valid for so long as the visa holder remains a member of good standing of the Program AND provided his investment exists in the Philippines unless visa is being cancelled. Any Foreigner with entry visa issued by the Philippine Embassy who is at least 35 years old or former Filipino citizens who are now holders of foreign passports and at least 35 years old are eligible to apply for the SRRV. However, it must be noted that the SRRV requires a specific investment in the Philippines, real estate investment will be applicable provided that the property is accredited with the PRA.
