Philippines Long Stay (6 Month) Visitor Visa
Foreigners intending to stay longer in the Philippines can now apply for a six-month, long-stay tourist visa that has been created by the Bureau of Immigration (BI).
Previously, the BI granted foreign tourists a maximum stay of two months each time they apply for visa extensions.
A spokesperson said: “Through long stay visa, we expect lesser crowding in our offices due to the decreased volume of visa extension applicants”
This will be more beneficial for those who do stay longer, and will avoid the waiting every two months at the Immigration office. However, there appears to be no financial savings.

The COST of a 6 month visa extension.
This is a subject that gets many answers, and many of them are different answers.
The OFFICIAL cost is: 11,500 pesos. WITH the ACR-I card
My cost, when I got my Six month Visa Extension in April 2015 was 8,250 pesos. WITHOUT the ACR-I card
The price I was quoted by Visa Agencies in my area varied between 16,000 and 18,000 pesos, and their charges for doing it for me ranged between 2,000 and 2,500 pesos (included in the previous figure.)
