    Watch you visa stamp when you reinter on a "13A"!

    Last May when I returned from Seattle after 4 weeks in the hospital (in a wheel chair). The airport wheel chair pusher ask Maria for my pass port and she handed it to him and he in turn handed it to the immigration officer. The immigration officer stamped it with a Balikbayan Visa instead of a 13-A Visa like he should have. I went for my annual check in Dumaguete yesterday. I was told that because I was here on a Balikbayan Visa I could NOT get an annual check in on my 13-A. That I would need to got to Manila to see the main man in the main office to get my visa changed from Balikbayan to 13-A. Then get my annual check in, done.

    My advice to all 13-A visa holders is to check your pass port vise stamp closely when going through immigration. Immigration officers do make mistakes. When mistakes like this happen it is up to us to correct them. In my case I will have to make a trip to Manila.:o o::cry:
