I was planning to get my 13A in Holland, advised by the BI in DGT. So i would not get a 1 year first, but get the permanent visa right away, she said. So I called the embassy in the Hague to hear I wil only get a 1 year first and i need to do all the medical tests in Holland. Since I hear they never ask for the medical result when you apply in cebu (right?) i think i will just apply here. When we come back i will get a Balik Bayan visa so i have one year to get the 13A. This way i will not get the medical test in Holland, saves a lot of euro and i don't see any advantages doing it in Holland. Or do I miss something?
