Sort off... Meron kaming mga kakilala na wala namang hassle nakakalusot ng immigration. Pero meron din like yung last case na alam ko, kasi yung friend ko ang bumili ng business visa for him. Hinarang na sa immigration tapos naglagay na lang sya ng 40K PHP. Kawawa naman di ba?

My friend recently came with working visa di naman daw sila na hassle. And so did the husband of my friend on family visit visa. I'm bringing my brother by the end of the month with a family visit visa and hopefully di naman sya ma-question. Before, I brought my parents here tinanong sila kung ano yung purpose ng pagpunta nila. Inexplain naman nila that I was going to give birth that time kaya sila pupunta at pinakita yung affidavit of support. Pero hinassle pa rin si daddy sabi may kapangalan kasi sya na may kaso and ipostpone na lang daw muna yung travel. Till I guess they figured out wala naman ibibigay parents ko sa kanila haha.

But recently kasi they stopped issuing visas, not sure if to filipinas lang or filipinos in general because of the mandate of the Philippine government na basic pay ng mga maids. It might get a bit tighter as well at immigration.

Pupunta ka ba dito sis? What visa do you have? I think kung husband's visa ka naman it shouldnt be too difficult.

^Sis i just have Personal Visit Visa, si Hubby kasi gustong pumunta ako dyan sa Qatar this month to celebrate Christmas together. We're newlyweds and naka-reserve na yung plane ticket ko for this month flight. Si hubby nagwowork sa Government dyan. And now because of the news i heard about sa immigration, biglang kinabhan ako. Sayang naman yung gagastusin ko sa flight at sa pag process ko sa Qatar Embassy. This coming tuesday ko pa lang makukuha yung passport ko sa Qatar Embassy(Taguig).

Any advise sis? Your feedback would be greatly appreciated :) . Iniisip ko pa lang ngayon parang sayang yung mga dadalhin kong gamit at pasalubong kay Hubby.

Sis shocking yung 40K pesos, ang laki (O_O) . My sister said na may kakilala siyang nagwowork sa immigration, ang sahod lang daw is 15K, pero lumalaki sahod nila sa mga involuntary tip. Naku! lalo na ngayon it's Christmas baka nag-iimpon na sila ng pondo  :-X .

Sis, my advise is, like what I am doing for my brother and ito din ginawa ng officemate ko for her husband, make sure you have the following pag dating sa airport immigration:

1. Affidavit of Support - kukunin to ng hubby mo sa embassy dito sa Qatar. He needs to present his salary certificate.
2. Show your wedding certificate
3. Your husband will have to send the original affidavit of support, ask him to include a copy of his QID, passport copy with the visa sticker, copy of employment contract if possible, pati copy ng salary certificate.
4. If you're husband is given accommodation allowance and is renting out, its good to have a copy of the contract (kahit na arabic pa)
5. Ask your hubby to make a personal letter (if possible use his company letter head and send this original as well) stating that he will be responsible for your expenses, accomodation and transportation. That he will guarantee you will not be a public liability and will make sure that you will return to Philippines accordingly.

Hassle talaga, but you have right to come sis. May visa ka na. You have to think din what your hubby went through to get your visa. Since patapos ka na rin naman from your part, go ka na.

Lastly, and on a different note... punta ka dito kasi malamig (actually napaka lamig hehe) itll be a good time for you and your hubby to bond lalo na newly wed pala kayo :D

^Thank you so much sis :D , later going na ako sa Qatar Embassy. Yes, sis meron rin akong affidavit of support, salary certificate, passport niya, employment contract niya, yung problem ko lang ata  is yung marriage certificate (hindi ko pa napapa-authenticate) but later i will go ahead sa Old DFA :) .

Sis necessary bang magdala ng US dollar? Parang namention ni Hubby na magdala daw ako ng $600-$800. Ayaw ko kasing maglabas ng US dollar sa account ko lalo na kung wala naman talagang pag gagamitan.

Uu sis malamig daw dyan ngayon ;D , naka-ready na yung mga jackets and socks ko LOL.. Excited na ako Yay!

Sis, its not a bad idea to bring USD just in case you get asked. Pero wala ka naman babayaran na visa pagdating na dito. Actually you should just be careful pag sa immigration natin.

I'm really sorry if all my post seems to be negative regarding the immigration at NAIA, just had a very bad personal experience din kasi. And to be honest I've been out of Philippines since 2007 and everytime uuwi ako NAIA still looks the same. Last Oct I noticed bata na yung mga immigration officer and thought it might be different na. Apparently, someone told me hindi daw. Sorry out of topic.

Well...advance Marhaba! Welcome to Qatar :D

sis yung h2b ko is nasa saudi right now. After ng contract niya uuwi siya rito sa pinas tapos after 6months ikakasal na kami. After ng wedding plan niya pumunta ng qatar for visit visa tapos apply. Kung swertihin siya kukunin niya ko. Kung malasin babalik siya sa saudi as direct hire. Question sis. Mahigpit na ba ang visit visa nila sa Qatar? I mean pagdating niya ba ng qatar dun siya hinaharang ng mga officer? or dito palang sa pinas hinaharang na?

In my opinion it would be easier for him kung from Saudi punta na sya sa Qatar kasi he wont have to deal with Philippine Immigration. Im not sure kung true talaga na naghigpit talaga ang Qatar sa pagiissue ng mga visa but that may only apply to females... though lagi naman talagang mas mahigpit sila sa visa ng babae.

Feeling ko kasi pag nag tourist visa ang hubby mo dito sa Qatar at nakita sa Philippine Immigration iaassume talaga nila na maghahanap sya ng work, issue yun kasi may drama sila na dapat working visa na, baka di pa makaalis ang hubby mo. My suggestion is kung after ng contract nya makahanap sya ng way pumunta ng Qatar directly then its better. Kung ang worries nya ay hindi sya makakauwi for the wedding baka pwede naman mag emergency leave na lang sya that time.

hindi niya naisip yan bago kami nagplan ng wedding at nag book ng supplier omg sis. As in invitations nalang ang kulang huhu. Mahirap ang church wedding maraming papeles na dapat siya mismo ang gagawa. Wala pa siyang confirmation at need pa ng mga seminar at iba pang requirements. Bahala na! Sabihan ko nga na iexpand ang contacts niya baka sakaling may willing na company iabsorb siya na taga qatar.

^kung after ng contract niya 6months time pa naman bago ng wedding niyo, i suggest bago umalis ng saudi magapply na siya sa qatar, then from saudi to qatar, bago niya iaccept ang offer, makipagdeal siya sa company na kailangan niya umuwi ng 2months, so kung mabilis mag ayos ang company ng papers niya in four months time kasama na ang probi period, makukuha na niya ang RP niya, i think enough na ang two months sa preparation since nandyan ka naman, kami nung kinasal sa pinas 15days lang kami present then kasal na :) Medyo risky lang yung part na kailangan maayos ang visa ni hubby mo bago mag 4months, kung hindi man maayos, di goodbye muna siya sa qatar as long as wala namang RP na naprocess di siya mababan, after ng wedding niyo apply siya again sa qatar at least yung months na nasa qatar siya makita na niya kung ano meron dito at the same time sumasahod pa siya.

cristyles: make sure may dala ka rin NBI mo at ni hubby mo.
kasi yung officemate ng brother ko same case kayo hinaharang pa sya sa immigration baka raw sino lang pupuntahan sa qatar, hinanapan ng NBI buti na lang at meron syang copy ng NBI ng hubby nya. mabuti na yung sigurado at dala mo lahat ng papers mo. alamin mo rin details ng company ni hubby mo.

ive heard rin na nagban ng pinay housemaids dahil hinde nag agree ang Qatar government sa 400USD$ salary.

alam ko mahigpit rin ang immigration sa pinas kapag mga naka business visa, madalas humihingi ng lagay..

kaya mag maganda pa rin ang family visit visa.

^Thanks sis, buti na lang iniwan sa akin ni Hubby NBI clearance niya before siya umalis nung July. Kakakuha ko lang rin ng pina-authenticate kong NBI. Lumipat na yung pagpapa-authenticate ng documents sa new DFA which is sa Aseana near SM MOA. Magkasama na sila sa iisang building pag kukuha ng passport, mas less hassle sa pag commute :) .

Sayang naman at hindi naapprove yung 400USD$ salary para sa mga Pinay DH, sana rin in the future maapprove yung proposal na guaranteed protection & Labor Law.

Ilang days na lang flight ko na at sa Dec.19 ata ang National Day dyan sa Qatar sis?

Sis question as a woman do i need to wear scarves/shawl once i arrived Qatar? Or dress code?

Noylabmay: re: visit visa- tell your husband na mag inquire sa regency travel, or sa airline na sasakyan mo. maybe qatar airways can process a visit visa for you (?)

cristyles: dec 18 ang national day, sayang sana makapanood ka dito its a whole day event.
dress code? just wear something decent, kasi dadaan ka sa immigration...dont show your shoulder and knees, i think thats safe. hinde ka naman sasawayin kung ano ang suot mo, kaya lang baka magulat ka how people will stare at you here. next week ka na pala pupunta dito excited ka na?!

^Sa Dec.15 flight ko sis, this sunday na. Ninenerbyos ako sobra dahil never pa ako pumunta sa Muslim country. Parang feeling ko restricted galaw ko, i don't want to draw any attention. I'll wear cardigan and plain white shirt para safe :) . Gusto ko mag blend in sa kanila as much as possible *Nervous* .

EDIT: Dec.15 pala is Saturday, mali tingin ko sa calendar. Empake mode 8)

Sis cristyles, no worries... di naman kami parang nasa Saudi dito... But you should at least make sure your shoulders and knees are covered. Apparently may law dito on that... besides that kung ayaw mo mapagsabihan ng local or titigan ng mga tao just wear conservatively. In any case there are days na malamig so I think you'll really have to cover up. Pero pwede pa rin naman magfasyown... di nga lang katulad ng fashion ng pinas ;)

Sis noylabmay, di ko alam kung lifted na yung ban on issuing visas for Filipinas... meron namang hotels na nagiissue ng visa but you need to stay sa hotel nila... im not sure kung it would make a difference since sa Abu Dhabi naman kayo manggagaling.

Sis hanson15, i think the best thing to do is magapply na sya ngayon pa lang... like you said pwede sya maghongkong but you have to be able to show return tickets na manila-hk-manila... then another issue is yung pagkuha nya ng visit visa... when he goes to manila after saudi paano sya bibili ng visit visa? i think you still have ample time before your wedding...he can go to qatar after his contract in saudi but i have to tell you na di mo rin masasabi kung in one months time makakuha agad ng work si hubby mo... so i guess you guys really have to talk out your plan. To be honest baka kasi mahirapan na sya magapply if out of GCC na sya.

^uu nga sis hindi tulad sa Pinas pwede kahit ano. Bye-bye sleeveless na muna ako, hello sa cardigans and long sleeves :) . May stop-over pa naman yung flight ko sa Bahrain then transfer going to Qatar kasi mas mura ng 10K. Pang-shopping at pang-gala rin yun  :D .

May sale rin ba sa Qatar pag December?
