    I would like to apply for a quota visa.
    I understand other members here have obtained one. Could you please give advice on submitting the application for a successful outcome.
    I have lived in the Philippines since january 2011 on a tourist visa. I have also bought a house here.
    Thanks in advance for any info.

    I applied for and received a Quota Visa 11 years ago when my work visa expired. At that time, unfortunately, corruption was in play and to be assured of being in the queue for one of the 50 annual US quota visas, I had to pay php250,000 each for both myself and my ex-wife. I understand the process has been significantly cleaned up now and there is a fixed (acceptable) amount now. Probably documented on the Philippines government web site. At that time you had to be in the queue in December for the January issue.
    Note: I was told back then that Chinese had to pay 2-4 times what I paid due to the supply/demand.

    How did you buy a house? I hope you mean you paid the cash through an intermediary to hold title or something like that. If you think you bought house you are in for a big surprise.

    You can actually own a house, but not the land that it stands on - you have to lease that.
