Special Resident Retiree’s Visa (SRRV)

The Special Resident Retiree’s Visa, commonly known as the SRRV, is a highly sought-after visa issued by the Bureau of Immigration (BI), endorsed by the Philippine Retirement Authority (PRA). It is for foreign nationals and former Filipino nationals who are 50 years old and above, and who have chosen the Philippines as their retirement home, investment destination, or even for natural-born Filipino citizens who wish to return.

What sets the SRRV apart is its multiple entry privileges, allowing for complete freedom of travel to and from the Philippines, as well as the possibility of permanent or indefinite stay in the country as long as the visa deposit exists
