Quota Visa

The Quota Visa is an immigrant visa for foreign nationals that are citizens of countries that have diplomatic ties with the Philippine that grant Filipinos the same immigration privileges under the principle of reciprocity.

Note: Watch out for corruption on this visa. I have had it offered to me for the price of P200,000. Be careful when dealing with these things and just say “No!” to corruption!
