    I’m blacklisted because I don’t have proper documents, so it’s only 3 months, it’s already more than five months but still my name is in the blacklist. Because of that they send me back again

      I think that using an immigration specialist for this might be best.

      Your situation sounds confusing.

      If you can’t find someone to file your black list removal you might have to find and research a legal attorney/lawyer who specializes in lifting legal

      First step get someone you trust to file the your lifting of the black list of immigration for you. This could be a close friend who is honest. (like I did) 🙂 Or you can use immigration based lawyer they are expensive to use. They will contact the bureau of immigration on your behalf and help you file your legal documents.
      It is a large legal process, first off get the overstay payed off, then the next step is….GET SOMEONE to file it in your place. You must contact a Philippine’s Embassy in your home country or surrounding country. The reason I say this is if you submit photo copies of passport, State I.D., Driver’s license, Special Power of Attorney, and Authorization. When you file these legal documents: you must have them authenticate the documents for you in person, or you can do so by mail.

      If done by mail: contact a notary republic, have them sign your and verify documents. Then the documents must be sent to the department of state. After that has been done you can send them to the Philippines embassy for authentication. Doing this by mail requires a lot of patience but, this is for the United States born nationals, it might differ for other foreign nationals who wish to be lifted off the black list.

      Always check the laws of the country it is better to fly out of the country before they put you in a legal bind. I hope this information helped you out very much. I think they are hording information to force you to consult legal attorneys within in the Philippines instead of using cheaper routes.
