It’s nice information

after 36 months staying in the philippines i must go out from the country and back again,how long do i need to stay out?

I left at 7am and was back at 1300hrs. Just got my stamp and came back.

Is it possible to acquire a 6 month visa extension at the Marquee Mall in Angeles City ?

Dear admin, I will be in the Philippines for nearly 3 years this April, would/will I be able to overstay 3 more months? How? How much will I have to pay?

If I apply for a 3 year tourist visa, then do I need to get return air ticket

Philippine immigration requires you to have an onging ticket. Although they rarely check, as you said they generally leave it up to the airline to check. But is it worth the risk not to have an ongoing ticket? There are many cheap options to ensure you have an ongoing ticket. Some internet sites allow you to book a flight for as little as ten dollars, then the flight is cancelled after a short period of time, allowing you to have a legitimate booked flight at the time of entry. So hope I have explained clearly an everyone understands that by law you are required to have an onward flight.

Good afternoon I have been extending my tourist visa for the last 10 months and I’m planning to stay for 3 years. Will I need to exit the country after 16 months? Or i could just extend my tourist visa until the 36 months are up?
