Offloading in NAIA

Dear all,

I am Andy and I'm from the Philippines. My situation is this, I'm going to apply for a visit visa to Romania to finally meet my boyfriend and this was planned for the next year. Of course, I've researched about the process of applying for the visa and through this, I've stumbled upon a lot of horror stories from Filipinas being offloaded from the airport even with complete requirements and paperworks.. Can you give me some advice as to not be offloaded? We've included the option of my boyfriend coming here and we leave for Romania at the same time, so would that help lower the chances of being offloaded?

I would be handling my visa processing and my flight tickets, also there would be enough money left in my savings for financial capacity. My boyfriend is also still a student, but he has his own savings and of course, his parents would help financially if warranted.

Sincerely,

Andy

If your young, attractive and dont have a good job in Philippines, then there is a good chance you will be offloaded, even with an escort. Have him come visit you here and if it works out, then get married and then you can travel.   Not much you can do. DFA is trying to prevent human trafficking, of which you probably fit the profile. 

By the way, be very wary of Eastern Europeans. Romania is a very poor country, so it may not be as promising as you expect.  Just my opinion, but have traveled and worked in the region.

I'm 28 years old btw, attractive yes (lol), I'm a licensed nurse but working as a medical transcriptionist, have enough savings in my bank account.. Do i still fit your profile as a potential victim of human trafficking? I understand why you profile Pinays as dependent on their foreign partners (therefore, fall prey to human traffickers), but it's not always the case.. There are many successful Pinays also who just happened to find their significant others outside the country..

It's just that the Bureau of Immigration is too strict in letting female travelers exit the country, that the innocent legit tourists get affected too.. It's like they're implementing these offloading guidelines as the law which shouldn't be the case.. It's a clear violation of the right to travel, isn't it?

Your or my opinion doesn't matter. If you fit the profile, you will get offloaded.
- 28 y/o - yes
- attractive - yes
- unmarried - yes
- children - ??
- medical transcriptionist. I dont know. Get a letter from your HR stating your employment status, how long you have worked there, salary, etc.
- savings. bring last 6 months of bank statements.

Its not a clear violation of your rights. The govt is protecting you from others who may take advantage. If you dont agree, then tell your congressperson. Get a letter from him/her to take along.

We are planning on taking the following:

Have her and I dress comfortably well, clean and professional.
Passports naturally enough
A copy of her college enrolment
Her bank account details for the last 12 months
A copy of the lease she has on the property were we live
Emails dating back showing our relationship for the last 3 years
Photos of me with her family, dating back 2 years
A photo of her and me with my niece
Return flight tickets in her and my name
Copy of hotel reservations for our 8 day trip
Copy of her travel insurance

She is 25 I am 54 years old.

If any one has any other tips please share.

This is a good thread from a couple of years back with a lot of input from members in similar situations as well as some updated information from another site.

I hope you find it helpful.

FYI my GF and I have started our holiday overseas from the Philippines to Thailand and Vietnam, so how did leaving the Philippines go for us...

This was her first trip out of the Philippines.  She is 24 (student) and I am 54, here is how it went:

When leaving the Philippines from the international airport, we checked into our flight; then went to the standard customs, and were then directed to the second customs interview, for a Filipina, this is standard protocol especially for Filipina's leaving for the first time.

For the second interview we had all the documents showing our 3 and 1/2 history.

Passports naturally enough
A copy of her college enrolment
Her bank account details for the last 12 months
A copy of the lease she has on the property were we live
Emails dating back showing our relationship for the last 3 years
Photos of me with her family, dating back 2 years
A photo of her and me with my niece
Return flight tickets in her and my name
Copy of hotel reservations for our 8 day trip
Copy of her travel insurance

She was interviewed first, they simply asked her to show bank account details and one of the photo's we had brought with us.  Even though all the other documents were not needed, I did feel that having a folder with all the paper work listed above, showed that we were prepared and in a serious relationship. The interview took about 15 minutes, she had to complete a form.

I was then handed a form and asked to complete it, mostly it was a statutory declaration of our relationship and a form indicating that if she was injured or became sick while over seas that I was legally responsible for all payments.

And that was it, she had to return to the standard exit immigration point to pick up her passport and we were on our way.

We were both dressed well.



Overall the exit immigration procedure was conducted polity, professionally and in a work friendly manner.

Do get to the airport a little early, we were lucky there was no queue when we arrived for the second interview, however when we left this, there were 7 Filipina's waiting to be interviewed, so if you arrive and there is a queue it could take some time, with each interview lasting about 15 minutes.


We our now greatly enjoying our holiday :)
