Your best bet would be to consult with a relocation company -- they can advise you on documentation, cost of living, accommodations, etc. Try the following companies (easily searchable on Google):

Asian Tigers Lane Moving, Crown Relocations, Santa Fe Moving & Carepak.

Good luck!

From what I understand you have three ways to stay there long-term. One depending on your age, be able to deposit $50,000 to $70,000 in bank. Two, obtain work visa, but unless you have employer already willing to do this, don't count on it once you are there. Finally, either be married to a Pinay that has lived in US for two years legally, or marry while in Philippines. These are the ways I am aware of to accomplish your goal of staying long term. Also remember, you cannot legally own "real" property (house or land) other than a Condo.
