Philippines Halts Expat Retirement Visas on Senators’ Concern

The Philippines suspended processing retirement visas for foreigners after senators said they were worried about the high number of people in their 30s arriving from China.

The Philippine Retirement Authority is reviewing its special resident retiree’s visa program and halted applications, the agency said on its website. The plan allowed foreigners as young as 35 years old to reside in the Southeast Asian nation as retirees.
