Deportation from USA to Philippines

by Allen
(Dallas, Tx, US)

I'm originally a citizen of Cebu City, Philippines. I've been in America since I was 8 years old, went to school and graduated from high school in the U.S. I've served in the Armed Forces for about 10 years and deployed to foreign countries 3 times.


I ran into some issues with the law in America and now they are deporting me back to the Philippines. What is the process or procedures once I arrive in the Philippines? Will I be accepted even though I haven't been back for nearly 20 years? What will the government do to me once I arrive?

I'm still a citizen of the Philippines and have a grandmother on my mother's side who resides in US and is an American citizen, but I'm not. I also have cousins, aunts, and uncles there. So, what will be expected of me once I arrive there? I'm worried because I don't know the process and procedures there since I haven't been back to the Philippines in over 20 years, so will I be accepted back in my country of the Philippines after being deported from the U.S.?

sharing experiences NEW
by: Anonymous

Same experience with me I was a lil skeptical when they told me I had a hit when I was trying to get my NBI clearance...when I got there I didn't say nothing about my case, she assumed it was for over staying and I just nodded yes. (Drug charges) ..I think one of the best career to do here in pinaz is the BOO industry... even I myself still have dreams and and miss my family back in the states.. it said I may have apply for a non immigrant visa after 10yes but I wonder if that'll be approved with the fact that I have a aggravated felony for immigration when ur sentenced more than 1yr...how I wish it is easy to just cross the borders like the Mexicans...next month I'm gonna try to get my Ph passport and see if I'll get one w/o a problem coz I still plan to travel outside of Ph...anyone here able to travel abroad after being deported? Thanks in advance

NBI or Police clearance
by: Anonymous

for NBI and POLICE CLEARANCEs - no issue. I was hysterical when I applied for NBI and was told to go to the main branch because my name got a hit. you will need to make an online appointment prior to going there though for an "interview". they will ask you to come in one room and ask several questions ***YOU DO NOT HAVE TO TELL THEM THE REASON YOU WRE DEPORTED**** just tell them your name and try to answer with a yes or no answer. they will not handcuff you and incarcerate you again. its a validation that you are back in the country.

Another option is to go to Mexico on a tourist visa then cross the border from there just like what the El Salvadorans and other Latinos are doing. :)

Deported october 2009
by: Anonymous

I got deported 7 years ago. I been working in call centers and online. I had a high profile case in the states(operation candy box). Fedz gave me 70 months. I can get police or NBI clearance. I dont talk to anybody unless they speak english. I got kids in Cebu and I have 1 son in Florida. You can add me on FB(jerson Cruz) if your crime is not rape or molestation. Life is challenging here and I struggle everyday to keep my mind at ease, because it sucks being deported. People ask me why I didnt become a citizen all the time. I never knew I wasnt a citizen and I thought deportation was only for illegal aliens. I was too busy being a bad ass to even think about being a citizen. I learned my lesson and I am content with I have but it still hurts and hard to sleep at night missing my home and family

What the....
by: Anonymous

Why in the world didn't you become a US citizen after all this time and after serving in the US military??? It just doesn't make any sense. Couldn't you get a good lawyer?

Philippines is ok
by: Cebu Resort

If you are resourceful and adaptive , Philippines is a nice country to stay or even retire. Stay in Cebu, where a mix of business and relaxation is widely practiced. www.cebuspring.com

Been there

You will be accepted as a filipino citizen it doesn't matter what ur issues are, once you get an order from an immigration judge that you will be deported, the officers from the ICE will then process your temporary passport and you will be taken to the philippine consulate ( varies to what state you are from ) to take a photo and to let you sign your travel document. Take note that if you commit a crime or not they will detain you.. Remember that America is not the only life where we can build our dreams everything happens for a reason don't lose hope.

You can get police clearance or nbi clearance because a crime or illegal stay in USA happens in USA not here so don't worry.

Life here in philippines could be challenging..

I got deported just recently and I'm just sharing you my experience.. Hope this helps..

yes you will be back
by: Ken Chan

You will be accepted in the Philippines as long as you have your Philippine passport..... no problem , even if you lose your Filipino citizenship , you can always recover it with simple affidavit and pledge of allegiance to the country Philippines... we accept dual citizenship in this country.

consult proper authority
by: Anonymous

Hi Allen,

Better consult the proper authorities like Philippine Embassy online about your case, that kind is I think, one of their forte.
