Overstaying Foreigners

Overstaying Foreigners

Overstaying Foreigners 1 Hours upwards

Foreigners who have overstayed a visa by even 1 hour, maybe even less, will need to pay penalty fees.
An example of this is: leaving the Philippines on a flight that departs at 2am, on the day after the visa expires, and the cost is 4,310 pesos. Fortunately this might be able to be paid at the airport, at least it can at Terminal 3 in Manila.

Overstaying Foreigners 6 to 12 Months

Foreigners who have overstayed for twelve (12) months or less but have been in the country beyond the maximum allowable period already may be permitted to update their stay with order to leave the country within fifteen (15) calendar days therefrom and their names may be included in the Bureau’s blacklist upon the discretion of the Commissioner; Provided that, the Commissioner, in the exercise of sound judgment, may allow such foreigners to update and extend their stay taking into consideration their Filipino lineage, medical condition, minority and other analogous circumstances.

Overstaying Foreigners 12 Months plus

Foreigners who have overstayed for more than twelve (12) months regardless if their stay is within the maximum allowable period or those found to be overstaying by virtue to a complaint or Mission Order regardless of the period shall be referred for deportation.

    She needs to renew her passport ASAP.
    Then arrange to pay all outstanding visas with penalties. Also be ready to leave the country immediately.

    If she is a dual citizen and has a Philippine passport there are alternatives to that.
