What is an APECO Special Resident Visa (ASRV)?

The ASRV is a special permanent residency visa acquired by becoming a member of the Aurora Special Economic Zone (APECO), a regional development project established by the national government and provincial authorities as per Republic Act No. 9460 and Republic Act 10083.

What are the benefits?
