I live in CDO but I have to go to Manila to amend my 13a visa from probationary to permanent. My Probationary VISA expires June 23. I had hoped to submit my application to amend in CDO but the NBI Clearance for foreigners takes two months and I missed the deadline and now have to travel to Manila to apply for the amendment.
Because of the expense to fly to Manila I want to have an idea of what to expect when I visit BI Manila. At different website posts some say the process takes three visits, while other say four visits. Some posts say the application and attorney interview took place the same day and other posts say BI accepted the application and the applicant is given a date to return to BI a few days later for the attorney interview. I'm Confused!
If you have recent experience at BI Manila to amend your 13a Visa from probationary to permanent, please shed some light on this subject and offer your advice and guidance to me.
