Q: I’m going to be overstaying in Manila for one day due to the cost of a flight back to UK, 1500 verse 800 so I’ll stay 😀. What if any issues may I have at the airport. 

– Rich, 20th April 2019

A: One possibility is that they will just let you through, as one day isn’t much. This has been known to happen.

The other possibility, with severe consequences, is that they will send you back to Manila Immigration, to renew the visa, so you can fly out when you come back.  You may miss the flight, and have to book another.

Personally I would play safe and renew, to avoid that issue on leaving.

Q: What is the minimum amount of money you can enter into the Philippines with a passport? 

– Lloyd, 7th April 2019

A: As far as I am aware, there is no minimum.  I have never been asked.  Possibly because most people use cards these days, to pay for things or to get cash at an ATM.  I had about $200 with me on one occasion, plus debit and credit cards that I used to get cash while there.

    1. According to Ayala Malls (MarQuee Mall)
      At 10:15am on June 25, 2019, a minor fire incident occurred at one of the food stalls inside Metro Supermarket.
      The mall immediately assisted customers and mall employees to evacuate the immediate area.
      At 10:30am, the Bureau of Fire Protection declared fire under control and official fire out at 10:35am;
      The mall began to allow customers and employees to enter the mall agan at around 10:35am.
      No injury was reported during the incident.

      MarQuee Mall resumed normal operations.

      It is thought that the fire was in the Mang Inasal grilled chicken outlet.

      Major Sonny Cario, head of the Bureau of Fire Protection here, said the fire, which started at 10:25 a.m., was declared out 30 minutes later.
      “We are checking the origin of the fire in the supermarket area, especially in the Mang Inasal outlet,” Cario told the Inquirer by phone.
