Thanks, rbenoit.

It's been a long wait and my wife has become pessimistic and reluctant to believe any news that I give her.  She will only believe it when she gets her passport back with the visa stamped on it.  I just hope she gets the visa before the peak flying season kicks in and before her medicals expire end of December.

Personal advertisement for accomodations in Davao City, Philippines
Many of you alerady know our story and after 2 1/2 grueling years of immigration problems my wife has been here in Canada now since the end of November 2008.

If any of you are planning on visiting in/or around Davao city feel free to contact me as my wife and I bought a 2 bedroom condo there as we were planning on moving.
Fortunately, just before we finalized any moving plans my wife got her visa and so we have been renting out our condo mostly to other couples that were in our situation.

I know this is a little bit of self advertising however staying in a nice furnished condo even for short term is a much nicer experience than staying in hotels.
You can also find us on
Select Philippines
Select Davao city
Select apts / housing or vacation rentals

Best regards,
Randy and Grace
