The Philippine Retirement Authority is a government-owned and controlled corporation created by virtue of Executive Order No. 1037, signed by former President Ferdinand E. Marcos on 04 July 1985.

On August 31, 2011, through Executive Order No. 26, the control and supervision of PRA was transferred to the Board of Investments (BOI)-Department of Trade and Industry from the Office of the President.

On May 2009, through the Republic Act No. 9593, otherwise known as Tourism Act of 2009, PRA became an attached agency of the Department of Tourism and placed under the supervision of the Secretary.

PRA is mandated to develop and promote the Philippines as a retirement haven as a means of accelerating the social and economic development of the country, strengthening its foreign exchange position, and at the same time, providing further best quality of life to the targeted retirees in a most attractive retirement package.

The Special Resident Retiree’s Visa (SRRV), which is a nonimmigrant, multiple-entry, indefinite-stay visa, the Philippines’ retirement visa is the PRA’s core product. The number of retiree-members represents an extremely important contribution to the PRA’s success.

On October 20, 2010, the PRA Board rationalized, expanded and branded PRA’s retirement visa product-line as follows:

  • SRRV SMILE Option - Visa deposit is simply deposited for end of term obligations
  • SRRV Classic Option – Visa deposit is convertible into property investments
  • SRRV Courtesy – for former Philippine-based diplomats and former Filipinos
  • SRRV Human Touch – for ailing retiree- applicants

To provide a globally competitive retirement program in the Philippines for foreign nationals and former Filipinos that will strengthen the sustainable socio-economic development of the country.


To make the Philippines the preferred retirement destination in South East Asia by 2022.
