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?

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

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.

    • Americans, guns and their constitution
      By TizMe · Posted Comedian Jim Jeffries tackled one of the most controversial subjects in the U.S. gun control laws.
      Jeffries was once the victim of a home invasion in which he was tied up and beaten with his girlfriend, who was also threatened with rape. You'd think he'd have some cause for carrying a gun, no? Wrong! He brilliantly nails why Americans need to make a case for more gun control:

      Hi Stanley is indeed nice, it is also the second most expensive place to live in HK after the peak. Which size are you looking after and what is your budget? RS
    • Job market (communication industry) and salaries / cost of living in Hong Kong

      Hi The local market is less and less keen to hire professionals - especially in communications - who are not capable of reading and writing standard Chinese. Classified Post publishes a detailed and pretty accurate salary index every year; you can easily find it on the Internet. HK$350-400k for a couple with a kid is extremely low. For 20k/mo you will get around 400 sq ft. on the island and that's just for the accomodation. International childcare alone will cost you 10-15k per mo on top of that. Overall, the cost of life in Hong Kong is higher than in most European capital cities including London. RS

      Hi You need to create the company, then hire yourself and build a business case for the investment visa. The rules for the case to be accepted are obviously not public but there are lots of people who can help you. The investment is nothing like HK$7m (that's for the Capital Investment visa, which is very different from the normal Investment). Depending on the company business and the content of the case, you might even not have to put any money on the table at all (but you will need to be able to prove that you'll have enough to live at least two years in HK).
