Peter Vandever’s Philippines visa expired over three years ago and he has never renewed it as required by law. He has tried to make many different public claims in attempt to divert attention away from his illegal status: that he is an official Philippine citizen (the most laughable of all), he is a “Philippines national”, the Bureau of Internal Revenue isn’t allowing him to leave due to an unsettled tax issue (lie debunked), there’s an issue with his passport that he needs to fix, and most recently, realizing everyone knows his excuses are ridiculous, he just says he now has “complications”. To his credit, at least that most recent excuse is true. In a recent audio blog by Peter Vandever, he finally acknowledges the truth that we have already known for a long time. He effectively concedes that he is in the Philippines illegally as an overstayer.
Peter wants to leave the Philippines. Badly. As he mentions in his audio blog, he hopes he will be allowed to leave “on doctor’s orders”. Clearly, he got this idea from a vlogger who goes by the name BigKevin.
This idea won’t work for at least two big reasons:
- Peter can’t even afford 20 pesos (less than 50 US cents) to use the internet for an hour. He certainly can’t afford to visit a doctor. He makes all sorts of claims about ongoing work being done at various hospitals, but like everything else with Peter, it’s complete bullshit.
- BigKevin unlikely had a file on record with the Intelligence Division of the Bureau of Immigration like Peter does. In other words, BigKevin wasn’t a known criminal and wanted by authorities. Peter is, and I say this with firsthand knowledge.
If Peter does exit the country, it will only be by forced deportation due to being someone of “undesirable” status, having conducted many provable crimes, and having a visa that has expired a long time ago.
