MAGPADALA KAYO SA PAMILYA, DAHIL KUNG HINDI. . .

Posted by:

 

Dahil sa mga ulat na maraming OFW ang hindi nagpapadala sa kanilang pamilya ng pinansyal na tulong, isinusulong ngayon ni OFW Family Partylist Rep. Roy V. Seneres ang House Bill 3576 na naglalayong bigyan ng karapatan ang mga Filipino ambassadors, consul generals, chiefs of missions or charge d’affairs na manduhan ang isang OFW upang magpadala ng bahagi ng kanyang kinikita sa kaniyang pamilya sa Pilipinas.

Sa ilalim ng batas na ito, ang isang OFW ay dapat na magbigay ng kaukulang materyal, pinansyal at moral na suporta sa kaniyang mag-anak dahil kung hindi ay hindi makakapagpa-renew o approve ng bagong pasaporte ang isang OFW. Ang pagpapadala ng isang OFW ay bibigyan ng kaukulang proof of remittance ng DFA na magiging requirement upang makapagpa-renew ng pasaporte ang isang OFW.

Do you agree or not?

Pinoys should be using e-Passport after October 2015

Posted by:

All non-machine readable passports may no longer be extended beyond October 31, 2014 and must be completely phased out by November 24, 2015.

All Filipino nationals holding Machine Readable-Ready Passports (MRRP; green passports) and Machine Readable Passports (MRP; maroon passports) will no longer be allowed to apply for an extension of the validity of these passports after October 31, 2014.

They must instead apply for a new e-Passport as soon as possible before the expiry of their current MRRP (green) or MRP (maroon) passports. Those who fail to do so will likely encounter difficulty at immigration checks when traveling through any ports of entry around the world after October 2015.

Old PH Passports No Longer Allowed After October 2015

Posted by:

As per regulations of the Department of Foreign Affairs (DFA) and the standards set by the International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO), all non-machine readable passports may no longer be extended beyond 31 October 2015 and must be completely phased out by 24 November 2015.

This means that Filipino nationals holding Machine Readable-Ready Passports (MRRP; green passports) and Machine Readable Passports (MRP; maroon passports) will no longer be allowed to apply for an extension of the validity of these passports beyond 31 October 2014.

They must instead apply for a new e-Passport as soon as possible before the expiry of their current MRRP (green) or MRP (maroon) passports. Those who fail to do so will likely encounter difficulty at immigration checks when traveling through any ports of entry around the world after October 2015.

If the traveler’s passport is less than 6 months valid, exemptions to request for extension of validity can be made due to any of the following reasons: 1) death in the family, 2) medical emergency, 3) OFWs returning to their employers abroad with valid employment contracts and 4) those going home on final exit visas, provided that they have a supporting document to prove such.
