visa problem -- help!

By guapo lagi

im on a business visit visa here. im now working with a company for a month. i have reasons to believe that the company is not really taking care of my RP visa, that they dont really want to get me an RP visa.

any expert here who could give me tips on how to deal with this?
where do i inquire to check about the status of my visa application?

im a filipino. ive already secured an NOC letter from my sponsor which is now at the hand of my employer.

another thing.
i heard of this new law that gives locally hired people 3 more

months of legal stay should they resign from their work. how true is that?

thank you

We can only tell them flor. If they don't act on it, they will have to deal with the consequences...sadly some innocent people will be affected too...just because of those who don't listen...ah well, c'est la vie!

And another one getting ready to be used and abused....no matter how clear it is made to them, they still want to "try their luck".

By flor1212• 11 years 2 months ago.
flor1212

you to come but if you still insist, then don't ask advise here.

But wait, there is somebody up there who can advise you, NOMAD, maybe he can give you some "sensible" advise! I'll wait his post!

By nomad_08• 11 years 2 months ago.
nomad_08

it all depends on your luck joan :-)

flor - you do not have the right to ask those kind of questions from someone you dont even know..its unethical you know.

im just trying my luck

By flor1212• 11 years 2 months ago.
flor1212

on the same company who issued the business visa or you are just coming here to try your luck to find a job? If you are just one of those who will try their luck to find a job, then I discourage you to come. Definitely you have something to worry about! Anyway, try it, BUT DON'T COMPLAIN if any negative consequence rise up?

flor1212

did a medical and did PDOS and have an OEC, then worry not, you can rest assured that you can fly-out! You don't need a show money, but you need money to pay the travel tax and terminal fee.

Nomad, if you can't help, then just shut up!

@ nomad_08 --- awwwwwww...again i did bad move...:( i really dont know...i just want to clear everything..

By anonymous• 11 years 2 months ago.

yes thru an agency there..they sent the visa and invitation letter and then by june 12 i'll be leaving the Phils..actually the business visa is already attached on my passport...

By nomad_08• 11 years 2 months ago.
nomad_08

joan you should not give any details or information to people you dont know...

By anonymous• 11 years 2 months ago.
anonymous

but the immigration here in the Phils really freakin me coz a lot of my friends told me that its hard to get passed the interview by the immig even if you have a valid requirements and stuff...

By flor1212• 11 years 2 months ago.
flor1212

through an agency? If you did, then worry not, just show your paasport, two-way ticket and OEC, you'll be fine!

By anonymous• 11 years 2 months ago.

oh im sorry Strawberry i thought its ok to speak our language here nway thanks for your advise...

uhhhmm flor1212 a good company there issued a business visa for me..Noor Technical Services W.L.L gave the business visa for me..

By flor1212• 11 years 2 months ago.
flor1212

in the main forum.

Anyway, is your business visa "legitimate"? Where did you get it and who issued it?

By strawberry_shisha• 11 years 2 months ago.
strawberry_shisha

it depends on the officer who'll you gonna face with in the immigration..some ask..some don't..still it's a matter of luck..

btw,speak english in public forum or else your comment will be erase by the moderator..

best of luck..

all I am saying pasador, is that if you do something illegal, and please, stop talking about Luck, it is simply illegal, and no matter how you live your life or what situation you are in, it is illegal.

I can blame you for your misfortune, as you created it. plain and simple.

You want tips on what to do? Look at the posts posted, if somebody told you to go back to the Philippines, get a job from here and get the company to sort out the paperwork, THAT is what you are supposed to do.

don't come here and ask for advise that aides your illegal activities.

By pasador• 11 years 2 months ago.
pasador

i got all your point, specially your point nomerci....i think its already sinking in my mind....maybe your not living your life the way we are living.some of us knows it is illegaland you cannot blame them or us if we do some things that based on some pure luck...and i dont remember asking anyone else here to help me personally or take over my problems, last time i check, im just asking for some ideas, tips and what to do...sorry if i didnt pass your expectation that i should be somewhat a genius on doing some things here in doha...sorry your highness....but please dont call me stupid.....

By nomerci• 11 years 2 months ago.
nomerci

pasador, you and the people who are doing what you do, which is ILLEGAL are messing it up for all others.

Are you all too selfish or too stupid to understand that?

No wonder you all are getting messed about with left, right and center.

Even your own country is trying, and failing obviously, to stop your illegal activities.

By pasador• 11 years 2 months ago.
pasador

zip it....thats what they mean...change topic hehehe

the community guidelines to talk illegal things here, so don't even think about it!

freelance visa?? *curious. may you guys elaborate this one? how is it? illegal?

@hungmynd - i can easily adopt to a new work environment =) praying to have a very good salary package.

freelance visa is ILLEGAL. ILLEGAL. Period!

Ah Hungmynd, 2 hours 55 minute on QL and giving poor advice already.

There is SOME work here and a lot of it under paid, hence people trying to shift jobs and not getting NOCs

Freelance visas are ILLEGAL.

By hungmynd• 11 years 2 months ago.
hungmynd

dont worry cyndisgarcia, there are tons of work here.. and only problem for you is to find a good work environment, a good salary package. =)

@pasador - i think if you are willing to pay much, why dont buy an freelance visa?

By pasador• 11 years 2 months ago.
pasador

thanks guys for all the suggestions and idea...God bless you all....

Pasador, Carlo is right. If your new company really want to hire and give you a new visa, exit to the Philippines and make the proper procedure there. Don't worry about this visa cancellation of your current sponsor, it won't affect your future entry here.

By cyndisgarcia• 11 years 2 months ago.
cyndisgarcia

please PM me those company who's doing that? im also a filipina, about to land there this month. hopefully to find a good job. thanks.

Pasador it is possible but it depends to the company how many days, weeks or months before they can get you a working visa so if you are going to exit to any GCC countries you have to apply visa to that particular country for you to able to stay while waiting for your visa and it cost you a lot so it is better to follow what flor said. Goodluck

By pasador• 11 years 2 months ago.
pasador

to hungmynd - so if the company cancelled my visa without NOC, i can exit to any gcc countries like bahrain and dubai and get the new working visa of the new company?? is it possible?

By hungmynd• 11 years 2 months ago.
hungmynd

thank you very much. God bless to you pasador hope you find some good answer.

By pasador• 11 years 2 months ago.
pasador

to hungmynd - you got pm

By flor1212• 11 years 2 months ago.
flor1212

use the new work visa you have now and do the proper procedures back home and come back here. You don't need an NOC.

By hungmynd• 11 years 2 months ago.
hungmynd

kabayan sorry but i can't help you with that, but please can you give the name of the company, because some of my friends are still finding job here, maybe they will encounter this company.

By the way pasador, i still don't have an PATAKA but i have my RP visa, it is true that if you don't have this PATAKA you don't have the rights for requesting an NOC?

By pasador• 11 years 2 months ago.
pasador

to flor1212 - and whats the proper way to do it?? i really dont know what to do anymore?

By flor1212• 11 years 2 months ago.
flor1212

it will continue as long as you don't do it the proper way!

pasador - first of all stop panic! if u r in panic - nothing good will happen. second - all what u can do - to find compromise with ur old company and get NOC or continue work with them. anyway - it seems this company is not honest enough with u so better do ur best to get NOC and find other job. wish u good luck and remember - NO PANIC!
