More and more Filipinos are trying to get jobs abroad for both work and pleasure. The Commission on Filipinos Overseas reported that there were 10.4 million Filipinos in permanent, temporary or irregular status abroad in 2011.
The Flight of the Filipino
Unstable economic situation, perennial high unemployment rate, low salary offered by local companies and poor benefits are just some of the reasons for this emigration. Beyond these, it is becoming apparent that most of the Filipinos who had the chance to work abroad had better lives and more stable finances.
On a survey done, one in every five Filipinos would want to emigrate or visit a foreign country given the chance.
Problems of Going Abroad
A critical hurdle for most Filipinos looking to go abroad, however, is the tedious and sometimes nerve-wracking visa application process. Add to this the risks of spending much with every visit to the documenting office.
The challenge of putting together the right documents and properly lodging an application for visa to one’s destination country could easily lead to discouragement and despair.
Global Visas, world leader in immigration and visa consultancy recognized a global need for expertise in this area. It opened its head office in London in 1996 and now has 250 immigration experts worldwide, including 51 in its Cebu operation which started in October 2010.
The Cebu office has facilitated the issuance of about 200 visas of various categories to various countries since its launch.
Global Visas Cebu has won for its clients the most difficult battles as far as visa facilitation is concerned, including that of Maritess Sejas, who successfully reapplied with Global Visas advice after being denied visa issuance several times.
The expertise of the Global Visas team allows it to deliver the best quality service in the lodgment of spousal, fiancée, tourist and working visas. Aida Abarquez was awarded a multiple-entry visa to the USA as a result of a Global Visas – guided application. She is now able to make more visits to her husband who is working there.
