The Philippine National Police has a judicial system, similar records are available to former officers of the Philippine National Police headquarters, Camp Crane, Quezon City. The Philippines` visa policy is governed by Commonwealth Act No. 613, also known as the Philippine Immigration Act, and subsequent laws that amend it. The law is applied jointly by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs (DFA) and the Immigration Bureau (BI). Visitors from 157 countries are allowed to enter without a visa for periods of 14 to 59 days. Registration Criteria: All civil law documents must be registered in a timely manner according to the criteria of the PPE, the registration must be carried out by the origin bodies specified in the issuing authority, which must transmit all important statistics/civil acts to the PSA governmental authority, including late registrations. Alternative document: (Accepted only if the certificate issued by PSA states: “No file available except in the event of presumed death”). LCR records the death as secondary evidence, while funeral records will be useful.

For missing persons whose death has not been confirmed in the line of work (e.g. B sailor lost at sea, pilot in a plane crash), a court decision or protocol on “presumed death” should be submitted. However, you and your husband can choose to downgrade his expired temporary resident visa to a tourist visa so that he can still stay in the Philippines in the meantime. Just try to apply for their new temporary resident visa again afterwards. It will be strongly advised for you and your husband to visit the main office of the Immigration Office in Intramuros, Manila, to process the demotion of his visa. You and/or your husband must send a cover letter to the Immigration Commissioner stating the reason for the demotion of his visa, as well as your residential address and telephone number. .
