U.S. Expat with 27 Years of Experience Makes It Easier to Retire in the Philippines

Veteran Expat Exposes the Twists and Turns of Getting a Visa for the Philippines


Manila, Philippines -- (SBWIRE) -- 01/21/2014 -- has just released a brand new book aimed at making it easier than ever before for expats to retire to the Philippines. Gary McMurrain distills his 27 years of experience, visiting, working and living the expat lifestyle in his latest book and continues with his passion of helping future expats.

Gary McMurrain and Steve Fleming launched in April 2013 with the sole purpose of helping others to enjoy the kind of lifestyle that they have come to love. The site is packed full of articles and insights into just what it’s like to live as an expat in the Philippines.

The two had always intended to release books designed to help other expats retire to paradise. The Expat Guide to Visas for the Philippines is their second release and it’s already creating quite a buzz amongst the expat community.

“I know from the years that I’ve spent responding to questions from people interested in moving to the Philippines that this would make a great topic. There’s so much bad information available online from the misinformed and those who are jaded and disillusioned with their choice of retiring to the Philippines. These kinds of people tend to paint a very one-sided and tainted view which is obviously based on their own limited experiences.

With this book I wanted to set a few things straight and actually get the truth about living and retiring to the Philippines into the right hands. I’ve been actively involved in the Philippines for over 27 years and have been studying its people, culture and history for much, much longer.

The information that I share is based on those experiences and studies and I know for a fact that it has helped thousands of people.”

The Expat Guide to Visas for the Philippines helps to make the process of getting a visa to the Philippines a little easier than it otherwise would be. Gary and Steve are committed to helping people to retire to the Philippines and will be releasing many more books in the future.

We asked Steve Fleming why he decided to start a website with Gary McMurrain and this was his response.

“Gary is one of the most passionate and knowledgeable people I’ve ever known when it comes to living the expat lifestyle in the Philippines. I’ve read quite a few posts and articles from those that claim to have the ‘secret sauce’ but they all pale when compared to Gary.

The reason I actively targeted Gary and made an effort to partner with him is because he’s so helpful and willing to assist wherever possible. He moderates forums, writes books and articles and even arranges to act as tour guide to people who are interested in coming here. I don’t know of anybody else that shows that kind of dedication and commitment to a single objective and I’m happy to call Gary McMurrain my business partner!”
