How much are the Penalties for Overstaying as a Tourist in the Philippines?

How much is the Overstaying Fee for Tourists in the Philippines?

Most Tourists to the Philippines are allowed to stay for 30 days before needing to apply for a Visa. The first Tourist Visa extension is the initial extension of twenty-nine (29) days, taking the visit up to 59 days.

This is commonly followed by a two month extension, although some Bureau of Immigration offices allow a 6 month extension.

If a person stay in the Philippines without a Valid Visitor Visa, then penalties are applied, and added to the unpaid Visa fees.

These combined penalties and fees can add up over time and can be something like the following figures:

I have calculated the following approximate costs for overstay payments including Visa Fees, ACR cards and Penalties.

Pesos:
4,310 From One day to One Month Overstay (Updated Sept 2017)
6,000 Total for between One and Two Months Overstay (Updated July 2018)
13,000 Total for Up to Three Month Overstay
15,000 Total for Up to Four Month Overstay
17,000 Total for Up to Five Month Overstay
18,000 Total for Up to Six Months Overstay
20,000 Total for Up to Seven Month Overstay
22,000 Total for Up to Eight Month Overstay
24,000 Total for Up to Nine Month Overstay
26,000 Total for Up to Ten Month Overstay
28,000 Total for Up to Eleven Month Overstay
30,000 Total for Up to Twelve Months Overstay
60,000 Total for Up to Two Years Overstay
90,000 Total for Up to Three Years Overstay
120,000 Total for Up to Four Years Overstay
150,000 Total for Up to Five Years Overstay
180,000 Total for Up to Six Years Overstay
210,000 Total for Up to Seven Years Overstay
240,000 Total for Up to Eight Years Overstay
270,000 Total for Up to Nine Years Overstay
300,000 Total for Up to Ten Years Overstay
450,000 Total for Up to Fifteen Years Overstay

Note: These are approximate costs Immigration will determine the exact cost when you visit their office.

A reasonable ‘estimate’ can be made by calculating 3,000 pesos for every month of Overstay. Or about 30,000 for each year.

These figures are approximate calculations based on 2016 fees. They may reduce the cost if they base it on the actual fees dues for older years, which may be less than the 2016 fees.

Charges can also be higher in some cases, such as one example in the comments below:

Pesos:

79,500 For a 19 months overstay.

Financial Penalties for Visa Overstay in the Philippines:

The minimum penalties appear to be:

  • All Visa Extension Fees not previously paid.
  • Fine for Overstaying – (additional) Php 500.00 per month
  • Motion for Reconsideration for Overstaying – (additional) Php 500.00

I have read that the Overstay fee for just a few days would be about 4,000 pesos.

This would be the 3,030 peso first Visa Extension fee + Overstay Fees.  (2015 fees)

If the Overstay is for over one month, but less than two months, then I would guess that the fee would be closer to 12,000 peso, made up as follows:

3,030 pesos – First Visa Extension fee
7,340 pesos – Next Visa Extension fee plus the ACR-i card fee
1,000 pesos – Fine for Overstaying (2 months)
500 pesos – Motion for Reconsideration for Overstaying

If the Overstay is for just over one year, then I would guess that the fee would be closer to 35,000 peso, PLUS possible DEPORTATION.  The fee would be made up as follows (assume figures for 13 months):

3,030 pesos – First Visa Extension fee
22,490 pesos – Six x 2 month Visa Extension fees plus the ACR-i card fee
6,000 pesos – Fine for Overstaying (12 months)
500 pesos – Motion for Reconsideration for Overstaying
plus maybe one ACR-i card renewal fee

That is my guess, based on the actual costs for Normal Visas last year.  If anyone has paid an Overstay Fee, please give details in the comments box below, showing the date and the fee paid and the total days overstayed.  Thank you.

The Official Statement for Visa Extensions is:

Foreigners admitted under Section 9 (a) of the Philippine Immigration Act (PIA) of 1940, as amended, or Executive Order No. 408, as amended, may extend their authorized stay every two (2) months for a total stay of not more than:
– a) Twenty-four (24) months for visa-required nationals; and
– b) Thirty-six (36) months for non-visa required nationals.

The said periods shall be counted from the date of applicant’s latest recorded arrival.

Overstaying Foreigners in the Philippines

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.

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.

  1. If you feel like sending $5 to buy me a cup of coffee, please click the donate button.

  2. I have overstayed since 2006, and have a child born here.. How much is the penalty ? And can i bring my child and filipino husband to the states.

    1. The following approximate costs for overstay payments including Visa Fees, ACR cards and Penalties.
      Pesos:
      300,000 Total for Up to Ten Years Overstay
      440,000 Total for Up to Fifteen Years Overstay

      From that, it could be about 375,000 approx., for a period from 2006.

      Regarding taking a child child and husband to the US, that will depend on Nationality of the child, and if the husband can get the relevant visa for the US.

      Immigration will decide if he can renew. As it is under 12 months, it is possible that they will permit this. Passport and completed application form, with photos will be needed. The Immigration office has the application forms, and often there will be a photocopying facility nearby to provide passport copies as required.

  9. Hi i came to the philippinens with my parents (mom filipina dad is german im german citizen) 2012 i was 13 after a year my visa got expire my mom could not renew it coz of finacial problem.. now that my mom just told me that im illegal here and she cant find my passport .. what should i do and how much is my penalty … i wanted to go back to germany for a job.. is there any way i could get out of phil. Without suffering hard consiquences coz i was still minor that time?

    1. If you can get Philippine Citizenship (ie: Dual Citizen) that removes the illegal status, and you can use a Philippine passport to travel to many countries without a visa.
      Some people use a Philippine passport to fly to Hong Kong, then their other passport (German in your case) to fly to Europe. This avoids any overstay fees on the foreign passport.

      You can apply for a replacement German passport at the German Embassy.

      1. Good day admin,
        I have a friend from u.s he come in Philippines in 2012 but his Visa expired on 2013 so he stayed in Philippines almost 7 years. He just wanna renew his Visa before but his broke he don’t have enough money to pay the penalty… But right now we are trying to help him to renew his Visa and pay the penalty… How much we need to pay for his penalty in 7 years overstaying in Philippines…

        reply please! soon as possible.. coz we need to know how much it cost so we can help him.. and he will be happy again… Thank you..

    1. A person is an overstayer once their visa validity date has expired.

      On entry your visa stamp shows the date you must leave by, or renew before.

      Go past that date and you have overstayed.

      Your mention of Trial Court, criminal case, seems to have no relevance to this.

      However, a visa ‘can’ be revoked for criminal convictions.

  11. Hello admin,
    I have friend he is overstaying 2years 2months, the problem he don’t have money to pay the penalty because he is sick. And the passport is lose or someone is stolen. There is a friend only ticket he give.he can go to airport or he go to jail. Thank you po

  12. Dear admin, I was suppose to pay for my visa extention aug 9th 2018 but I missed the date so I put getting my visa off until now. I am curious if I pay before Feb 9th will that be before 6 months? Also do you have to give a good reason for being late? AND I already extended 1 year 4 months so so will I have to pay 18k pesos because I have an acr card already? Thank you in advance.

    1. They may class that as 1 day over 6 months.
      It would be handy to be able to give them a good reason, in case they ask.
      The total cost is based on what is needed to bring all visas and ACR Card up to date, plus the penalties. What we show is an estimate.

        1. For a visitor visa it should be about 25,000php. It will be the total of all unpaid visa fees, plus the penalties, plus any ACR-I card costs, where applicable.

  13. Just wanna know if one is overstaying for 5years, he lost his passport cause somebody stole his things. He just now fixed his things cause of financial problems. Now his embassy giving him emergency passport. And planning to go in BOI for visa, he plans to go home. Will he still pay for penalties and all? What if he cannot pay all, will they put him in jail? Before being deported? How many days begore being deported? I hope he will not be in blacklisted. Pls reply

    1. Fees and penalties will still apply. They may ask why the person did not report to Immigration anyway.

      Deportation and blacklisting is possible. Confirmation of the reasons from the embassy might mitigate any consequences.

  15. Good day I would like to ask… I have staying in Philippines for 8 months since april… But I gotten married here in August… The marriage contract was issued in April… Just before my overstay begin… Do I still need to pay for overstay considering tat i married a philipino…

    1. You are currently in the country illegally if you have no valid visa.

      The fact that you have married a Filipino is irrelevant, unless you have now got a marriage visa.

      You need to get your visa situation sorted before your marriage is complicated by you being deported, and being banned from returning.

  16. Hello Sir,
    I am Indian citizen I got my visa for 7 days but unfortunately I will stay 8 days so my question is that can I overstay 1 days or can I extend my visa for one and where kindly reply me back

    1. Some people have been able to pay the costs at the airport, when it is only one day over. But it would be best to check with your nearest Bureau of Immigration, and ensure that you have no issues at the airport. You don’t want to miss your flight due to delays caused by this.

      Extending the visa, at your nearest Bureau of Immigration, is the safest option.

  17. Hi..just wanna ask about my child.. im a filipina and we came here in the philippines with my foreign husband..the problem is my child gave only 1 month because when he enter at the immigration he is carry of my husband i forgot to be with them.. what will i do now because we are staying here in the phil for about 36days but the immigration gave my chil for only 30days. Thank you

    1. The easy option is just to get a visa renewal, presumably the same as your husband will need to get, before the 30 day initial period ends.

      I am assuming the child is travelling on a foreign passport.

      You can renew the initial visa for another 29 days.

  18. Dear admin, my friend came in Manila on arrival for 15 days and now he overstaying at Cebu for 7 months, does he can pay the fine and fees for overstaying at Immigration office at Mandave, Cebu? And how much will be the total he need to pay, pls advice.

    1. It must be paid at an immigration office, where the visas will be brought up to date. It can take some hours to sort out, so it isn’t normally done at the airport.
      The cost, based on this; “18,000 Total for Up to Six Months Overstay”, should be between 21,000 and 24,000.
      Best to take enough to be on the safe side.

  19. Agoda
  20. Do you have data on percentage of overstays that are blacklisted or jailed? Perhaps broke down by arrest or going to BI by yourself? I want to fix my visa but dont care for jail

  21. Hi po. im still a filipino. My son is an australian citizen. We have an affidavit of support and consent from the consulate here in australia. Is my son still required to pay overstay fee? How much is it for 5 to 7 months overstay?

    1. If he is travelling on a foreign passport, he will be treated the same as any other foreign passport holder.

      Overstay Fees:
      13,000 Total for Up to Three Month Overstay
      18,000 Total for Up to Six Months Overstay, and about 2,000 per extra month.
      30,000 Total for Up to Twelve Months Overstay

      However, did he get a balikbayan visa when he arrived. That would give a 12 month visa free stay.

  22. hello everyone. can someone tell me what is the sequences of overstaying for almost 2 years and one month? i arrived at manila airport at 6 November 2016 and got my visa 1 month upon arrival after that i didn’t renew any more i have my filipina wife and my 4 kids here my wife get pregnant and she had bad condition so i had to be with her .. i need enough information and if there someone will give special assistance I’ll appreciate it thanks .

  26. Hi, We have a 30 day visa which shows that the last day in the Phillipines is the 21st of december. If we extend, the last day will be the 19th of January. Our flight leaves the 21st of January. Except for the pricey ACR card or leaving the country in between, are there other options?

    Many thanks,

    Tim

  27. Hi Admin,

    I would like to inquire about my husband who is overtayed here in the Philippines for almost 12yrs now.. He is a naturalized Filipino citizen and he entered here with his US passport.. how much his penalty? Thanks

  28. Hi good morning, Can i pay may penalties in airport in my flight day also?? its allowed that i pay only in airport?? or i should go to immigration Main Office?? And how much the estimated fee for 2 years only?? Pls reply as soon. Cause im planning to leave in this month. Where can i pay my penalties only in manila?? Pls reply Thank youu

    1. You will need to go to an Immigration Office. It may take 24 hours to sort out, maybe more. A 2 year overstay fee is about 60,000

      “30,000 Total for Up to Twelve Months Overstay
      60,000 Total for Up to Two Years Overstay (and then about 30,000 for each year)”

      Most Immigration offices can do this.

  29. Hi gud am,i would like to ask how much the penaltys for overstay in phil…for 2 years 6 months on indian nationality…..what requirements we need to bring….

    1. About 75,000 to 80,000 appears to be the figure.

      You need passports, youR earlier visa receipts, passport size photos, etc,. Everything you would need for getting a normal visa renewal, and of course your reason for not renewing your visa earlier. This may help when discussing deportation and blacklisting.

  30. Im a pilipina, i hve a child british citizen. We arrived phil last feb. 2018 and the immigration gve my child 1yr allowed to stay in phil. If she will exit again this feb 2019 can she get again another 1 yr extension?

    1. If the family member enters the Philippines with a Filipino citizen then they normally give a 1 year Balikbayan visa.
      “A foreign national spouse and/or child of a Balikbayan may only be given the said privilege if he/she is traveling with his/her Balikbayan spouse or parent.”

      Immigration do say that you can opt for an extension of that visa, at the normal visa extension cost: eg:
      “Those who are admitted as Balikbayans are given an initial stay of one (1) year. They may extend their stay for another one (1), two (2) or six (6) months provided that they present their valid passport and filled out the visa extension form and submit it to the Visa Extension Section in the BI Main Office or any BI Offices nationwide. An additional requirement will be ask for Balikbayans who have stayed in the Philippines after thirty six (36) months.”

      I have heard that people leave, then return and start again with another 1 year Balikbayan visa.

      However, the ruling does say: “A Balikbayan, (ie The Parent) who may be either one of the following:
      i. A Filipino citizen who has been continuously out of the Philippines for a period of at least one (1) year;
      etc”

      It might be best to check with an Immigration office.

  31. Hi, admin my 5 year old son is an U.S citizen and is in the Philippines and he overstay 2 years and 11 months. how much exactly is the penalty? Please reply me as soon as possible. Thanks a lot Sir/ Ma’am.

  32. Hi ! My friend is us citizen staying for almost 20 years in Philippines as her mother was Filipino and her father was American. She got her United States passport last year and she is coming to America next week, so how much she has to pay the overstaying fees . Can you please give an idea

    1. I have heard of people that use their Philippine passport to fly to Hong Kong or similar, (using a cheap return ticket) where no visa is required for a Philippine passport holder, then fly from there to the US on the US passport. That gets round any visa issues. It is a nice side trip too.

      Otherwise, if using ONLY a US passport, a 20 year visa penalty is very high (around 600,000 pisos).

      Some immigration officers have allowed people through when showing both passports, proving both citizenships, but some others insist on using seeing only one passport.
      If the Philippine passport has no visd for the US, (which it won’t have being a US citizen) then they get refused boarding.
      If the US passport has no valid visa and ECC, then again they get refused boarding, and sent to the city Immigration office.

      Confusion on rules in the Philippines seems normal.

      You should check at a Bureau of Immigration, and preferably get something in writing to confirm it, if they say you should have no issues.

  33. I have a concern.. may I know how much penalty should we pay about a korean child (6months old )who overstayed in philippines for 2 days ? the mother of the child neglect to process the child’s visa extension due to illness. I hope you could help me about this. The child’s name is in the Philiippine immigration blocklist now ,because of overstaying . what should we do to remove her name in the list.. I want to know if there is other possible way to remove it, and if we will pay some amount of penalty . ·Thank you

    1. You need to ask the local Bureau of Immigration about this. Was the child allowed to leave? Blacklisting for a 2 day overstay does seem odd.

  34. good evening.. my brother is half japanese and half filipino and he was born at philippines but he has a japanese passport and a citizen of japan, because he was citizen of japan he only received 1 year visa to stay at philippines.. and he exceed almost 10 years because he studied in philippines..
    is it consider as overstay? or what can we do to fix this problem? and to come back to japan? please reply thank you ..

    1. If he tries to leave the Philippines as a Japanese citizen, he will be treated as an overstay. If he gets a Philippine passport and leaves as a Filipino, there is no problem.

      1. hi. may baby ako na nasa philippines and 8 months old. japanese passport holder sya now. and sa philippines ko sya pinanganak. pero wala sya phil passport. may penalty ba yun kapag pumunta sya dito sa japan? thanks

  36. Good day,
    Please answer my concern. Just recently i applied for a pakistani passport for my 1 year old child.. Father is pakistani and I’m filipina. Since he was born here i didn’t get any visa for him coz of the reason that he was born here with a filipina mother and didn’t applied yet for his passport.. Next week I’m going back to uae and want to bring my child. How much do i need to pay for his penalty and do they consider that mother is a filipina? Our flight is by next week.. Will be appreciate the answer.. Thank you so much.

    1. You need to check this at the nearest Bureau of Immigration. Those travelling only on a foreign passport are treated as foreigners, and need an Exit Clearance Certificate, as well as up to date Visas. You could be looking at around 30,000. But take the birth certificate with you in case they can find a way around the issue for you.

  37. Good evening. I wanna ask about student visa. My friend has been staying here for 3 months up to 4 months with expired student visa due to financial problems. Not yet finished with his studies but wants to continue studying here for his 4th year, if the financial situation gets resolved, is it possible for him to continue his studies and not get deported? Also, how much will he possibly pay for his penalty? Thank you

  38. Hi ,

    My sister ( Indian passport holder) studying in Philippines forgot to renew her visa for 6 months as she was going through some personal issues.
    I would like to know the penalitites amount and the procedure to get this sorted.

    1. She needs to go to the Bureau of Immigration and pay all the unpaid visa fees, plus penalties, to get the visa situation into order.
      The total cost is about:
      18,000php for Up to Six Months Overstay
      30,000php for Up to Twelve Months Overstay
      Somewhere in between if over 6 months.

    1. The same as anyone else, get the visa sorted out, ie: brought up to date, pay the penalties, and discuss options with Immigration to see if he can avoid being deported.

      If married to a Filipina he should ask about the marriage visa.

  39. Hello, good day! I would like to ask a question, I overstayed here in the Philippines because, I need to get my Philippine passport. I think I overstayed here for like 3 to 4 months, but, I already got my Philippine passport. Do I still have to pay some fines? I also have a US passport with me.

    1. The answer may be different, depending on where you are going to. And possible the attitude of the Immigration officer. It isn’t very clear on that.

      Going to some other Asian countries, where a visa is not required, you can use your Philippine passport on its own, and avoid any problems.

      But, going to the US, and travelling on a US passport, you hit visa issues, where you may be classed as overstaying, and have to leave the airport and renew the visa.

      I suggest going to your nearest Bureau of Immigration and getting this cleared, in advance. I have heard of some not being allowed to travel, but of others being allowed to travel with no issues.

  40. I did one visa extension here in the Philippines and would like to stay close 3 months in total here in the country. Can I do one more visa extension? I heard the second visa extension is for 2 months but I only need one month. Maybe it would be cheaper to just pay the fine?

    1. You can do 1 month extensions, they are a bit cheaper. It isn’t cheaper to pay the fine, as you will pay whatever is payable for the Visa you missed, PLUS the penalty. A visa can be extended up to 36 months for most people. But only 24 months for some others.

  41. Hi gud day i have question regarding my daugther status she was in u.s we came back n the whe she was 3 months old i am a fililipina . Want to know how t o apply her to be a dual cit

  42. BI fees are nothing more than legalized extortion. The BI is itself a criminal organization since it violates people’s natural right to live, work, and travel wherever they so please (as long as they do not violate anyone else’s property). Immigration laws presuppose that government owns the land. But it doesn’t. Really, to hell with the BI.

    1. The Immigration department gives visas, at what is a small price, to those who wish to live, work, and travel in the country, just like most other countries in the world. No doubt even your own.

      Every country has a right to decide who is allowed to enter it’s country.

  43. My brother is a Naturatized US citizen and iwent home to the Philippines last Jan 2017. How much he has to pay for overstaying when he comes back next year in Jan 2019? Also, can he apply for dual citizenship while he is in the Philippines? If he will be granted Dual citizenship, does he still need to pay penalty when he comes back to US by 2019?

  44. Agoda
  45. What is the consequences of over saty in Philippines more than one year??Will they black list us??
    Is it possible to stay again in Philippines aafter settling the over stay penalties???

    1. Financial penalties, possible deportation and blacklisting.
      If the Overstay is for just over one year, then I would guess that the fee would be closer to 35,000 peso, PLUS possible DEPORTATION, and referral for blacklisting.

      It is best to keep your visa renewed and up to date, (to avoid being an illegal alien in the country) especially as you will will have to pay all the missed visa fees one day, plus extra
