9g Visa Holder Promoted to Higher Positions

9g Visa Holder Promoted

Visa Processing for 9g Visa Holder Promoted to Higher Positions in the Same Company

The Bureau of Immigration, through the Board Resolution No. EED-15-01, provides an easier, convenient,  and inexpensive process for 9g visa holders promoted to a higher position in the same company from the previous requirement of downgrading to a 9a visitor visa and applying for another 9g visa. The Board Resolution No. EED-15-01 approved on the 29th of January 2015, states that a 9g visa holder promoted to a higher position in the same company is exempted from downgrading his/her 9g visa provided that he/she shall:

  • Apply for a new Alien Employment Permit (AEP) corresponding to the new position
  • Apply for extension of their 9g visas coterminous with their new AEPs
  • Furnish the Bureau of Immigration with a certified copy of their new AEPs
