June 25, 2019 / By Gil Question:
the Philippines to attend the funeral of my mother. In our stay in the Philippines ( 5 months), my wife divorced me, so i did not bother to go back in the USA with my son. We lived in the Philippines and my son is now graduated in nursing. He wants to go back to the USA to work, he got his US passport renewed. However, he needs to get a departure clearance from the Bureau of Immigration before he can leave the Philippines. But the alien fee has filed up for 15 years. Too much for us to pay. Is there a way we can avoid paying this fees or at least make it minimal. Any other way? I need your help. It's been a year we have been saving but still not enough.

According to Philippine law, your son is a dual citizen since was was born to Philippine parents.As such he should not have to pay the alien fee. In order to obtain an Order of Recognition as a Philippine citizen it is necessary to write a letter to immigration requesting such recognition.

If the mother was Filipino you could try claiming his Filipino citizenship and argue that with the help of an immigration lawyer. However the Philippines will likely NOT back down matter what on the Exit Clearance and back dues owed for visa's you never recieved or paid for. The embassy will likely not be able to help you with that.
That leaves 3 options.
1. Doing the legally right thing which is paying the owed dues and paying the fines as well.
2. Try and forge the visa stamps on your sons passport. If your son is caught he could end up in jail and such. But records are a bit shoddy especially more then 5 years back. You could essentially do your research and get stamps made very cheap (some places even sell them in Mindinao where I used to live). You could do stamps to being recent or backdating only up to 5 years ago or so and hopefully get the fines and dues reduced significantly.
3. Report to the embassy a stolen US passport, get a new one issued or better yet a temporary for going back into the US. Then go down to immigration and report it as well saying you had all the visa's extensions and such but his passport was stolen and many other things from your house including where you stored reciepts (never know you *might* have stored the reciepts and passports in a lockbox in your house *hint* *hint*. They MIGHT let you away with that and give you a new visa stamp. Better to try that at a small immigration office and not a major one in a major city such as Cebu, Manila, Davao.

Try to borrow money, that's the only way. I don't think you can make a minimal fee or leave without paying it in full. Also, if you are a US citizen, you are required to file taxes in the US each year you were out of the country and so as your son when he reached the adult age. As George noted, try and ask the US Embassy for advice.

Why cant he work in your Country so you dont lose contact with him. Do you not mind forever losing contact with him or is this a way to use the baby to enter the USA ?

If he was born here then he is a U.S. citizen and should not need anything other than a passport as far as I know.
