Welcome back to another edition of the Expat Answerman Podcast! Some people have been asking me to have a new Podcast episode, and it was certainly about time, so let’d do it!

Today, we have a very interesting questions from Joseph, a person who was visiting the Philippines and ran into some problems. His problems were unique, and though is story sounds pretty incredible, even unbelievable, I was happy to help Joseph.

Throwaway Ticket Service - The Business that works while you sleep

Joseph was visiting the Philippines some 4 to 5 years ago. He got kidnapped, and the kidnapping lead to him overstaying int he Philippines. Joseph has a family here, including a 4 year old daughter. Because he overstayed in the Philippines, he was blacklisted, he says, for 8 years. He wants to see his daughter again, and I have some suggestions on how he might be able to do that. Give the podcast a listen and see what you think? Is Joseph credible? Are my solutions workable? Let me know what you think.

If I understand correctly, Trump has just changed immigration such that Filipinos are allowed to visit USA without a visa.

Sorry, Peter, you don’t understand correctly on that. That is nothing but fake news! Don’t believe everything you read on the net, there is so much fake stuff out there these days.

Unfortunately, right now, non of the news media in the US is trustworthy, and the sheer volume of fake news is totally ridiculous (this also includes the “Trending” are on FB). If you want to know the latest information about VISA requirements for the US and other immigration topics, your best source would be the US State Department. Their website is https://www.state.gov

Absolutely! It has gotten to the point where it is getting hard to even find real news anymore! Sad, but true in my opinion!

LOL that is what I said on the podcast.

Julius mentioned specifically that the reason he was blacklisted was because he had financial difficulty. I am sure he could not pay due to the financial situation.

I was blacklisted for over staying due to finances. All I did was pay the fines and back visa fee’s and then had someone speak with the attorney at the BOI to file some affidavit. took about 2-3 weeks and I was removed and free to return to the Philippines. I supposed you could legally change your name and get a new passport under your new name and return. lol

Hi Pablo, thank you for commenting. Changing your name cost money to, it’s probably cheaper and less hassle just to pay the back fees.

I was denied entry to the Philippines in2017. I think because I am on the sex offender list till March 19th. I went to the Philippines in 2010 and 2016 with no problem. But 2017 no entry. I asked for certificate of disposition I believe they said. I think I can get back in when my time is up in March. But not sure. Anybody know? I was tier 1. Possession of kiddy porn. Probation.
