Special Investor’s Resident Visa (SIRV)

The Special Investor’s Resident Visa (SIRV) is a unique visa opportunity for foreign nationals looking to invest in the Philippine economy. It is issued by the Bureau of Immigration (BI), upon the endorsement of the Board of Investments (BOI). This visa type grants foreign nationals the freedom to stay indefinitely in the Philippines, with multiple entry privileges, provided that the investments are maintained.

What You Need to Know:

  • Selected investments are permissible under this type of visa. Notably, investments in condominiums are not eligible.
  • Processing typically takes between 1-2 months.
  • Probationary SIRV is valid for 6 months, and within this period, you should be able to establish investment already.
  • If you already have an existing investment in the country, you may proceed with applying for the SIRV indefinite visa.

To be eligible for the SIRV visa, a foreign national must meet the following criteria:

  • Have no convictions for crimes involving moral turpitude.
  • Be free of any loathsome, dangerous or contagious diseases.
  • Have no history of institutionalization for any mental disorder or disability.
  • Be capable and willing to invest at least US$75,000.00 in an eligible form of investment.
