A YouTube Video by Brian Smith on 24 November 2020
Taking Jason for his Visa Renewal
Think about this.
There was a sign saying Panglao, and that’s all.
No sign anywhere, at any time noting that it was DFA or Immigration just a note on a door about some mundane undecipherable stuff.
Then, how convenient he couldn’t video the office as he said the corrupt staff now won’t allow cameras after being caught stealing money from people???
He then walks around — there again is no identity to the building or any reference anywhere to any DFA Office???
Then Jay – or was it was it Jay? All masked, hard to see in dark glasses, shows a slip of paper?
WHAT paper–we don’t know and Brian constantly refers to his passport which amazingly is not seen on camera at all, and whatever that guy has in his hands we don’t know?
It could have been a MacDonald’s receipt for a cheese burger!
Anyway, no actual proof anywhere in that video of going anywhere except to a building with the name Panglao written downstairs.
Google search DFA Panglao – oopss, nothing sorry. .
Plus Brian himself continually refers to this place being far better than Cebu or going to Cebu or what a hassle in Cebu this place is much better, no waiting,
hmmmm funny that a PI Immigration office with no signs at all and not one other person in sight waiting to get their Immigration done??? Seriously?
Not a single other person lined up or waiting outside or around the building??
Umm now I ask you expats in the Philippines,
When have YOU EVER been around a PI DFA or Immigration place and not been shoved pushed shouldered and jostled by dozens of people?
Man, oh Man, he has really endeared himself to Immigration with this video, huh?
