I am complaining about the immigration proceedings here in the Philippines, take note i am a Filipino. I have an aunt by law i guess that's what they call it because we are not related she is my uncle's wife. I'm always the one to process her papers and everytime i go to immigration it's always a pain in the ass. I am ashamed how immigration staffs treat foreigners even I myself, i wasn't respected at all, maybe because I look young, they thought I don't know anything.
Anyway the problem is the system itself, the location, the services offered (there's none at all), and the people working there. I am applying for the change of temporary visa to non-quota immigrant by marriage, and OMG the instructions I'm asking it's as if they can't hear you and they are all full of SH*T. THey will tell you to go to the other bldg. then come back and then go back again because they didn't listened to what you are asking they are giving wrong instructions for God's sake we are paying them how much? more than their salaries and they won't do their jobs properly, asking you to come back after 3 hrs. or wait for how many hours when they are just gossiping from time to time talking and talking. Well i am really compassionate with the foreigners applying for visa here in the Philippines I hope they will just understand it somehow. I just hope that our immigration would do something about it.

Gaya po ng maraming nagrereklamo ay isa po kami ng aking anak ang nakaranas ng pambabastos ng mga immigration officer na babae sa departure booth ng NAIIA sana naman po ay mabigyan ng pansin ang mga reklamong idinudulog sa inyo at magkaroon ng balasahan sa hanay ng mga empleyadong naturingan may aral ngunit ang mga ugali nila ay talo pa ng katulad kong walang aral ang naging karanasan ko at ng aking anak sa pag-uwi sa aking lupang sinilangan ay masasabing naging banyaga ako sa sarili kong bansa sayang ang pagtatalaga sa mga babaeng dapat ay magsisilbi ng buong puso at katapatan sa kanilang tungkulin ngunit nababahiran ng kanilang kabastusan sa mga katulad naming mga pilipino na ang hangad ay makita ng personal ang aming mga mahal sa buhay. ang panginoon na ang bahala sa inyo at sana dalangin namin ako at ang mga nagrereklamong katulad nila na sana po ay mabago ang sistema ng hanay ng empleyadong tapat at handang magsilbi sa tao at sa bayan at tangalin ang mga bastos at pera lang ang hangad ! maraming salamat po...

Sana gumawa ng aksyon ang mga nkaupo about dito maraming tourist na dedenied kahitwith holding original visa from other country and with supporting documents, kasi ang gusto tlga mga tao sa immigration eh mag humingi ng bayad sa tao ng palihim para sa escort, ano ba ang silbi ng mga documents na requeired na kinukuha dito sa dubai kung hindi rin pla sila makakalabas, ano silbi ng mga affidavit of support kung hindi rin sila makalabas ng bansa bkit hindi nlng nila sabihin bawal mag tourist ng hindi na gumastos ang mga tao kung ayw nila palabasin ng bansa.

Regarding US-CICS based at Roxas blvd and and makati. According to their advertisement at the newspapers same with their flyers, it is easy to acquire canadian visa and U.S Visa and with free orientation...But when you go to their office they will assess you and tell you that you are qualified.. for you to understand more you need to attend to their seminar with a fee of 1k..Upon paying the 1k, they will do the same with the first meeting..assess you again and advised to pay the 60 to 80 k or just an initial of 30 k..they will advise you to pay immediately..they will call you always and convince you to pay so that your papers will be process soon..After paying the said amount they will not call you anymore. If you will go to their office in makati, that will be the only time you will know that you need to submit a lot of requirements..to get a high score in ielts..so your papers will not be process until you will not get high score in ielts..your money will be stock to them..that's the only time you will know that it is not easy to go to Canada. They are not honest to tell the truth the first meeting with them..They are not honest to tell the requirements at the first meeting..Though they did not process your papers, you can not get your money ( 30 K intallment + 1K seminar fee ) back. So before you pay to any immigration agency ask first the requirements and tell them you need to meet all the requiremnts before paying the amount such as passing the ielts required score ..so be careful ...Beware of US -CICS.

Nasubukan ko na rin po na mabiktima ng immigration ( US- CICS )..Matatamis po silang magsalita..as in sabi nila free orientation sa advertisement nila sa newspaper yun pala pagdating mo sa office nila, sasabihin nila na magbayad ka ng P1, 000. Tapos kapag nagbayad ka na P1, 000 parehas din pala ang gagawin at sasabihin nila sa iyo during sa first meeting mo sa kanila. Tapos convince ka nila to pay the P5, 000 para ma- process na raw. Bibigyan ka nila ng mga requirements pero hindi nila explain ng maayos..hindi mo pa naisa-submit lahat ng requirements tatawagan ka palagi para magbayad na naman para daw mapadali processing..kapag nakabayad ka na ng halos kalahati ng fee hindi ka na nila tatawagan ..saka mo pa lang malalaman na marami ka pa palang dapat i-submit..kapag mag-back - out ka na hindi mo na makukuha yun amount na binayaran mo kahit wala pa silang nagagawa. worst baka ikaw pa ang sabihan nila ng may utang pa. hay...kaya ingat sa pagbayad at pagpirma...baka maloko kayo ng immigration din...

Sana nga po maayos na ang paglabas ng mga turista dyan sa immigration. masakit po kasi aalis po sana ko bilang turista papuntang malaysia, but unfortunately di po ako nakaalis, d po ba open country ang malaysia, i have documented but deny pa rn ako. bkit po may mga umaalis na bilang turista but OFW at walang papers from POEA, nakalusot sa immigration. d po ba dapat tayo maghigpit sa mga ito, kahit kasama p nila ang mismong nag sponsor sa kanila. nagulat nga ako ng marinig ko ito, they offer me na makakalabas ako papuntang malaysia using her sponsor letter as a tourist, samantalang ako, legal na tourist but d nakalabas, wish ko lang makarating sa malaysia and visit my mother who is married to indian. sayang nga, sana maverify nyo ang mga tunay na taong nagpapalabas ng as tourist but OFW pala mas delikado yata yun, para sa mga pinoy. as a matter of fact, filipina what i have said is here in the philippines, she is planning to go home on oct. 10, 2011 with two or three OFW, she encourage me to go with her, ayoko ng ganon, thank you po, once more pls. lang po, ang tulad ko makapagturista po sana, at ang inilalabas ng filipina na sinasabi ko sa inyo ay mapigilan ninyo. thank you po..

I have the same experience with you guys, though Im a Filipina I can say that these lady Immigration Officers are evils! I was not allowed to board although I have all the documents needed and for no reason they barred me to board, Aside from that they are so rude and may their souls burn in the hell!

Bakit po nakakalagpas ang mga Filipino sa immigration na ang papeles ay sponsor letter, but ang totoo magtratrabaho pala sa Malaysia. Wala bang record ang immigration kung ilang tao na ang binibigyan ng sponsor letter iisa lamang ang pangalan na ginagamit na sponsor sana naman immigration officer mapigilan ninyo ang binibigyan ng sponsor letter ni LOURDES VALENCIA MALVAR. Ang alam ko ang asawa niyang foreigner ay may sakit, at di na niya alam ang mga nangyayari na ginagamit ang name niya ng kanyang asawa. This coming October 10, 2011 may kasama siyang mga filipino na lalabas papuntang Malaysia, sa terminal 3, |Cebu Pacific Airlines. ang alam ko Malaysian resident siya kaya madali sa kanya ang labas pasok dito sa pilipinas at malaysia. at higit sa lahat ang documents gawa sa Recto.

I wish to report a dating scammer by the name of Kate Anad who lives in Digos City and is also a teacher. This 26 year old lady, gets to know you very quickly, wants to be your partner for life and wants to relocate to live with you. She tells you that she has a current passport, but does not when she admits that she has to obtain one. She then starts telling you a story about falling behind with her rent payments and how her landlord is sconding her if she does not pay within 2 days. She askes for p15, 000 to pay the rent debt. She also asked for money for food for her family. She tells you how to send the money by Western Union and when you don't send her money, she says "what kind of boyfriend are you, when you won't give me money" This lady needs to be stopped. She is not setting a very good example for a teacher.
