Under Sec. 47A2 of the Philippine Immigration Act, a Special Non-Immigrant Visa can be issued to foreign investors by the Secretary of the Department of Justice (DOJ) on the basis on public interest or public policy considerations. This visa is usually given to foreign employees of Regional Headquarters, Regional Operating Headquarters, or those working for special projects in economic zones.
Some examples of industries invested with public interest are companies engaged in oil exploration, power generation, and infrastructure, and those registered with the Philippine Economic Zone Authority (PEZA) and Board of Investments (BOI).
