lmao i'm watching on facebook live CIDG convoy on the way to server warrent of arrest i'm sure if there's shooint they can blame bad internet lol

@  kantutero : (23 February 2017 - 09:36 AM)

If Mui ne is now only 3 hours from sai Gon they must have improved the road a lot. Was supposed to be 5 hours (my friend taht lived in Sai Gon had been a few times). We met some Russians who were kitesurfing instructors heading to Mui Ne.

@  kantutero : (23 February 2017 - 09:34 AM)

FF: I did not go to Ha Long bay because it was December. I FROZE my ass off in Hoi An and Hue which are several hundred clicks furtehr South.

@  freebiefan2 : (23 February 2017 - 09:17 AM)

halong the most overrated tourist crap i ever wasted money on... wait for boat.. boat goes same place as everyone else, get ogg boat, tour somewhere, wait wait... dont buy beeer from boat vendors... rules and go there go there... was crap....

@  freebiefan2 : (23 February 2017 - 09:16 AM)

Was in Miu Ne over chinese new year... excellent beach. Lots Russians in town. Even got a pinay to come from saigon for a few days fun. 3 hour bus ride from saigon

@  kantutero : (23 February 2017 - 09:14 AM)

Ha Long Bay will be FREEZING cold still in March and likely foggy. Winter is NOT the time for the North and forget DAlat.

@  kantutero : (23 February 2017 - 09:13 AM)

Best beach of all I've heard is Mui Ne but was a huge ordeal to get up there. Vung Tau has most action of any beach I think but Nha Trang is probably best combo of beaches and bitches.

@  kantutero : (23 February 2017 - 09:12 AM)

FF: Absolutely agree. Phu Quoc is killer; I got a handjob on the beach from a fisherman's wife/massage lady even for just 100000 Dong (like $6). Made quite a mess of my shorts so had to wait until it dried up before geting up. Looked like I pissed myself LOL

@  freebiefan2 : (23 February 2017 - 09:06 AM)

Beaches, not benches... oops

@  freebiefan2 : (23 February 2017 - 09:06 AM)

I agree with your Ha Noi assessment.. however Saigon much closer to good benches , think Miu Ne and Phan Thiet not Vung Tau. And easier to get ot Phu Quoc too. Too many gap year wanna be hippies in Sai gon.

@  kantutero : (23 February 2017 - 09:01 AM)

Budhah: Please keep your fascist BS off the board so I can honor my pledge ok? The "thats just the way the Dems want it" comment is a provocation and violation of the law as laid down by Tangfu.

@  kantutero : (23 February 2017 - 08:55 AM)

Ha Noi is NOT hellishly hot like Sai Gon and is MUCH more charming and less in your face.

@  kantutero : (23 February 2017 - 08:53 AM)

VERY cold and rainy in Camiguin. Only been 2 sunny days in all of 2017 (yesterday and the day before). We planned White Island for today but just too cold and winy.

@  Gillette : (23 February 2017 - 08:06 AM)

I guess it's summer time.

@  Gillette : (23 February 2017 - 08:05 AM)

Was cool and dry now hot as hell again.

@  Gillette : (23 February 2017 - 08:05 AM)

Weather changed quickly.

@  Gillette : (23 February 2017 - 08:04 AM)

It is hot as hell today.

@  instates : (23 February 2017 - 06:00 AM)

This is taken from the Living in the Philippines website, an essential and well organized Philippines general information website.

You can now easily extent your stay in the Philippines for up to 16 month without ever having a visa for the Philippines and without ever leaving the country.

Most foreigners enter the Philippines without any visa and they will get a stamp in their passports which is good for 21 days. If someone wants to extent their stay, you would have to go the nearest Immigration Office and get your first extension, good for another 38 days. The cost for this first extension is 3010,- Peso.

Now you are already 59 days in the Philippines and your regular extension series starts by showing up at the Immigration Office every 2 month, just maybe a couple of days before your stamp expires.

If you have to go to the Immigration Office, make sure to wear long pants, a nice shirt and shoes. Otherwise you might not be serviced, some Immigration offices (Cebu) might not even let you in.

Enter the Philippines without a visa: 21 day for free!

Note: New charges since February 2008:

After 21 Days "Visa Waiver" for another 38 Days
Visa Weaver 500,- Peso
Visa Application Fee 1000,- Peso
Certification Fee (new 2008) 500,- Peso
Express fee Certification 500,- Peso
Express fee Processing 500,- Peso
Legal Research fefe 10,- Peso
Total: 3010,- Peso

After this 59 days you'll get a visa Extension for another 2 month!
The Extension 1000,- Peso
Application fees 300,- Peso
Alien Certificate of Registratiion (ACR) 1000,- Peso
Head Tax (Steuer) 250,- Peso
Certification Fee 500,- Peso
Emigration Clearance Certificate 700,- Peso
Legal Research Fee 10,- Peso
Express Fee Certification 500,- Peso
Express Fee Processing 500,- Peso
Total: 4760 Peso

Next extension for two month :
Visa Extension 1000,- Peso
Application Fee 300,- Peso
Legal Research Fee 10,- Peso
Certification 500,- Peso
Express Fee Certification 500,- Peso
Express Fee Processing 500,- Peso
Total: 2810,- Peso
By now you are already 6 month in the Philippines for 10580,- Pesos, but it goes on:
Extension after 6 month for another two month :
Visa Extension 1000,- Peso
Certificate of Residence, temporary Visitor 1400,- Peso
Application Fee 700,- Peso
Certification Fee 500,- Peso
Express Fee Certification 500,- Peso
Express Fee Processing 500,- Peso
Legal Research Fee 10,- Peso
Total: 4610,- Peso

Next extension for another two month:
Visa Extension 1000,- Peso
Application Fee 300,- Peso
Legal Research Fee 10,- Peso
Certification Fee 500,- Peso
Express Fee Certification 500,- Peso
Express Fee Processing 500,- Peso
Total: 2810,- Peso

Last extension for 2, to a total of 12 month:

Visa Extension 1000,- Peso
Application Fee 300,- Peso
Anual Report Fee 300,- Peso
Legal Reseach Fee 10,- Peso
Certification Fee 500,- Peso
Express Fee Certification 500,- Peso
Express Fee Processing 500,- Peso
Total: 3110,- Peso

The total amount for one year's extensions is 21110,- Peso!

Since August 2007 you can now extent your visa another two times, for up to 16 month in total. After 16 months however you should finaly make a visa Run or try to get another extension for up to 24 month from the "Chef of the Immigration Bureau for Regulations". This might become too complicated, so it might be easier to make a visa Run or to try to get a permanent residence.

The Special Resident retirement visa costs $1,420, so its equal to 3 years of paying and extending every couple of months. You dont need to visit immigration again, no exit or reentry permits needed. you do have to deposit $20k in a philipine bank account though.

If me I would apply for a visa before going to the Philippines as good to stay for 59 days on arrival.
The Philippines embassy will issue a multi entry visa, valid for 2 years and one can benefit from this if travel frequently to the PI.

Thanks Allan. I think I will head up to the Philippine Embassy in SFO and get one of those bad boy's.
I do not want to run into airlines problems when I book a round trip for 30+ days. When I first started on the site (PI addicts) I was planning on a 2-3 week trip, I have now decided on 30 days plus. I have taken care of the majority of my business and have a few loose ends to do. Again Thanks for the quick reply. dave

Dave, it will save you a lot of hassle for sure if you get the visa at the Philippines Consulate in the United States giving you more time for fun in the PI. Glad you decided to stay longer. You'll soon become addicted and won't want to leave, period!

if u extend past 1 year, there is an extra 700p charge.
also, once a year in jan/feb there is a report fee of 300p i think
after 16 months, just get an agent to extend for u in manila, i used swagman at 1000p
am advised a girl works out of sunset gardens who is reliable, but never used her
but be careful, recall someone telling me one agent lost his passport
always best to go with an established company, may cost a little more, but more likely less hassle

If you are married, or have family in the PI, get a Balikbayan visa, free for 12 months and extendable.

But with Tiger / SeAir an overnight in Singapore or Hong Kong is better than the hassle of renewing, and after 12 months you need a change of scenery and a reality check!

This is a good point. I've used Swagman Travel in Manila and Angeles for my visa extensions, (except when I'm in Davao)for the last 19 years. They've always been prompt, efficient and when I leave my passport with them long term, they even text me to remind me when I need to pay up for a new extension. I'm recently married so I'm planning a short trip with my wife (Marriage certificate in hand) to try & get a Balikbayan visa on our return....

There are 2 ACR-I cards.

One type for permanent residents and similar one for tourists.

The tourist ACR-I card is good for a year.

Yes, extending is easy but it is usually cheaper to arrange a 59 day visa in advance than to pay the P3030 extension in the Philippines.

Tell me what country you are from and I will tell you how mych the 59 day visa is.

£22 for British passport holders which is about P1520 on today's exchange rate. So, it could be up to half the cost to arrange in advance.
