CFO "hassles"???

5 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Yikes!! i've been reading a lot of bad impressions about CFO (some good :innocent: ) and its kinda frustrating to read them.....and makes me really think hard if its really best yet to leave via Pi. iam currently in uae and plan on flying from Pi but i know i will have to attend this dreaded CFO. :unsure: .... iam now contemplating as to whether are there any more or less issues or requirements id be facing since our papers weren't processed in the USE Manila. :crying:

I've checked the requirements and seem to be all ok (except current ID) but when i read on vj the much talked about "hassles" on going thru this, will this be worth exiting in pi or just take off from uae?

opinions,pls? :dance:

also, is it really "strictly" 2 ID's requirement? i only have my SSS Id (whilst inactive) because i havent been in PI for 3 yrs now and my TIN hasn't been released when i left. I might apply for postal ID but i only have 2 weeks stay incase. pls help :crying: (btw,id be going to St.Mary QC,near my place)

thank you bunches & bless u all :thumbs:

st. mary's is a great place. not much hassle... just make sure you got all your papers with you.

bring id (sss and passport, that's two), divorce papers of your fiance or spouse, marriage contract (if married)

your visa (of course this is inside your passport), know your husband's phone number -landline.

that's it... just sit there.... they'll ask a few questions.. be honest... then you'll be good to go.

don't worry about it. The trick to it is that you should be assertive, tell and show them that you are

an adult capable of making major decisions.. and you will be unstoppable.

good luck!

:) Don't worry about it... i tell you.. I went in there and met no resistance except when they asked for Divorce papers of my husband's previous marriage ( i forgot to bring it). The interviewer denied me... but I went downstairs and got the supervisor and talked to her and told her that I have seen the papers, that I am well educated and knows my rights, I told her parts of the content of the DP and I was assertive with her. She caved in and didn't have a choice but to issue it. She was very respectful all the way. So don't let it bother you. Just go in and get it done.

There are many people here who got their CFO stamp without hassle. There's bound to be some bad reviews since we are dealing with humans after all. The interviewer could be having a bad day.. etc. If you meet one, go directly to their supervisor. That should fix it.

Worse case, if you meet hard-core resistance, just inform them that you have constitutional rights. :) hehehe. That should scare them.
