Ang saya saya nyo you all got your visas already (latest batch). I should have been with you. Lol.
Am still waiting for mine though my meds/visa is supposed to expire in September 20s.. I have no idea what caused the delay of their return of my passport unless they also are following the date of their 2nd AOR to me (July) and not just the medical exam/visa expiry. Kaloka. hehe. Sana yun nga lang ang reason. boo. It's good I emailed them to follow up though 'cause they've replied and they've noted the expiry and have escalated the issue. I just don't have news yet on what the outcome is.
Anyhoo.. I've also booked my flight already for September with RELI Travel at SM Southmall and hope the visa makes it in time for the ticket payment deadline. Sana po. Hehe! I didn't do much comparison anymore between agencies as the differences (last time I did so last year), weren't that significant from one travel agency to the other (nasa 100s only.. pesos) for the first time immigrant promo. It's the differences of airfare cost between airlines that are more significant (in thousands): i.e., the difference between Korean Air vs Cathay is more than 100 USD. All these I asked were for Manila to Vancouver only, at immigrant promo fare.
The most expensive are usually PAL, Korean Air, and I expect Japan Airlines. The rest cost less and aren't too far apart in cost among Cathay, Eva Air, and China Air (if am not mistaken).
So yun lang po. Thought I'd share what I remember re airfare cost. hehe! Sana dumating na visa/passport ko this June!! So I can resign and also proceed with my trip and get the ball rolling again re Canada plans. Gaaaah!!
