Just announced on Fox news that the Martial law may go nation wide, because of Isis killing in the South. Fear of it spreading to rest of the PI.

@FurryFriend So you have experienced Martial law have you? Well I have and I tell you it is slightly inconvenient but not to the stage you wouldn't go there. FFS you love a troll or two don't you.

@  FurryFriend : (23 May 2017 - 11:48 PM)

http://www.rappler.com/nation/170754-davao-city-lockdown-marawi-attack Davao City mayor "urged visitors to cancel their trips to Davao unless [its] very important...[and] said that if they don't want to be thoroughly inspected in multiple checkpoints, they should not come..." That doesn't sound like a rocking fun place for a week-long mongering trip.

@  FurryFriend : (23 May 2017 - 11:20 PM)

Martial law means so much more than a curfew. It's about having mobility restricted, roads closed, stores closed, flights cancelled, and possible loss of conveniences like cellphone, ATM or internet services. These are all hinderences to mongering. If there was martial law in Pampanga, you can bet AC bars will all be closed. Furthermore, martial law grants the military ability to perform civilian law enforcement. It will not be a fun moment in the Philippines when soldiers with very powerful weapons stops you, asks you questions, then demands to frisk you.

I just booked a trip for 28 days to phill (leaving in january) I know you get 21 days tourist visa at the airport, and I thought I'd just get an extension on that visa down in phills. Does anyone here know if that is possible? or do I have to get a visa in my country in advance. Couse I'm afraid I go on the airplane and all that, land in phills, then the person at the booth will ask to see my return plane ticket (like last time I was in phills) then say that the return date is too long in the future and refuse to give me the 21 days.

Hello Tober and welcome to Philippines Addicts. You can easily get your extension before the 21 days are up without a problem. I have never heard of anybody being refused entry because of their return date is too long in the future, just tell them you intend to have an extended stay in the Philippines and will get an extension. Or you could also get your 59 day tourist visa in your country of origin at the Philippines Embassy to be fully prepared.

I am very surprised that you have been asked before to show a plane ticket by Philippines Immigration on arrival.In all my years of travelling in and out of NAIA Terminal 1 I have never been asked to see my tickets.

I don`t know what country you reside in but it is very possible to obtain a Philippine visa at the Philippine Embassy or Consulate nearby where you reside.The visa will be good for 59 days on arrival but you can still be asked for your plane ticket by Philippines Immigration.
Having a visa doesn`t mean you have an automatic right to enter any country that issues you a visa to travel there.
Philippines visa is very simple to obtain and usually can collect it the same day that you apply for it.If done by post allow a week turn around time.

I reside in Norway, And I live quite far away from the embassy, so going down to it is kinda out of the question. And I checked the apply thru mail by doing some google searching, and it is a waste of 1500kroner (250dollars) if I can just get the extension down in phills without any problem.

I should add that last time I went to phills they had given us on the airplane those sheets to fill out : name, country of origin, passport nr, duration of visit, adress/hotel you are staying at and etc. But I was sleeping then and woke up when the plane landed, so when I got to the booth I had to ask for a new sheet and a pen to use, I did all that gave the sheet to the woman then she asked to see my return ticket, I just said ok and showed a printed out copy. Then she stamped my passport and let me thru.

I was probably making it sound more complicated than it was earlier, but just want to make sure I don't go all over there to hear that I'm not allowed in to the country because I didn't get visa for longer than 21 days in advance. and put on a plane back^^

You won`t be sent back because you don`t have a visa to stay longer than 21 days on arrival.

Just make sure that you renew for an extension of stay while in the Philippines.Immigration authorities are strict if you over stay and fined accordingly.

It is possible to have the extension of stay increased to 59 days on arrival at the airport paying the visa Waiver Fee,but this depends on the Immigration Officer you see on arrival.

Renewal of extensions to stay are easily obtained via some travel agents,hotels etc on your behalf.This takes one day and you don`t have to go to Philippines Immigration yourself to do this.

Have Fun and Enjoy Your Stay. :GoldenSmile1:

If you're arriving at Terminal 1 in NAIA you can get a 59 day visa upon arrival in the immigration office in Terminal 1.


http://immigration.g...=258&Itemid=103

VISA UPON ARRIVAL TO NO visa REQUIRED TEMPORARY VISITORS
MEMORANDUM CIRCULAR NO. MCL--08--003

Pursuant to Section 18 of Memorandum Circular No. MCL-005 and in the interest of public service, and effective immediately, no visa required temporary visitor arriving in the Philippines who wishes to stay here for more than Twenty-one (21) but less than (59) may apply for a visa upon arrival at the airport of entry instead of securing a visa waiver in the Bureau's main office or any of its field offices upon payment of $50.00 visa fee plus P500.00 Express Fee and P10.00 Legal Research Fee.

The Chief of the Immigration Regulation Division is hereby instructed to inform all Bureau personnel and all relevant government agencies to proper dissimination of the memorandum circular.




MARCELINO C. LIBANAN
Commissioner



Terminal 1

59 visa upon arrival (not a visa waiver that you normally get to extend your stay). I went through the procedure in Feb 2010.
In Terminal 1 the immigration office is on the left hand side just before you reach the immigration booths.
Go in there and ask for a 59 visa upon arrival.
They will take your passport and pesos (has to be pesos) and go to the cashier. (I believe the cashier closes at midnight.)
My passport was stamped when returned to me and I didn't have to go into the immigration line.
I just walked out of the office and past the immigration booths (as instructed by the person in the immigration office).


Terminal 2

If you arrive on PAL you will most likely arrive at Terminal 2.
I don’t know if the visa upon arrival is available at Terminal 2.
The immigration office is, I believe, located after you pass through the immigration booths.

Terminal 3

The visa upon arrival was not available when I arrived from Hong Kong on Cebu-Pacific.
I stuck my head into the immigration office area but no one was there.
I asked the person at the immigration booth if I could get a 59 visa upon arrival but she didn’t know what I was asking about.

I have been at least once a month(occasionally twice a month) for the last year. I have been asked for my return ticket twice. Not sure which terminal I was in when asked, sometimes I come in Terminal 3, other times Terminal 1.

Came through terminal 1 a few days ago. Went to the office at the far left of all the lines at immigration and asked about getting the 38 day extension added to my 21 day visa waiver. They said sure but first I had to go through one of the immigration lines to get the 21 day visa waiver stamp. So I went through a line...took about 15 minutes....got the stamp and told the officer I would like to get a 38 day extension and he sent me back to the office where I started but now I had the needed stamp. I asked for a 38 day extension and filled out a short form. Girl asked for 2700p and said she will bring back change. Gave her 3000p and she took the money and the form and the passport upstairs. Waited in a little waiting room next to office. Girl back within 10 minutes with passport and receipts and change. I was charged 2096.50p which is the 50$ charge at exchange rate of 41.93. Good rate. Moneychangers that day were giving 41.50p. Also charged10p for legal research fee and 500p for express lane fee for a total charge of 2606.50p. I thought they had stamped passport with 38 day extension and walked around booths and headed to luggage pickup. They caught up with me and brought me back to a booth where my passport was stamped and signed with the 38 day extension. No big deal. Since I always stay longer than 21 days I will always do this in the future since it is cheaper and nothing to worry about for 59 days. When I finally got to luggage pickup my bags were just appearing so no problem there, either. Sweet!

Current fee in Australia before you leave for Class 9A visa Temporary visitor for leisure is

Up to 3 months $54 = P2376
Up to 6 months $108 = P4572
Up to 1 year $162. = P7128
http://www.philippin...nsular-fees.pdf

All in all for a little bit of travel to 1 Queens Road in Melbourne you get less hassle and you are set before you leave.

Word of warning make sure incoming Immigration Officer sees visa when you enter or they will just stamp the maximum time on the visa waiver (i.e 21 or 30 days)

ATTENTION ALL KIWI'S

Following the President Aquino's State visit of the sacred Island ( New Zealand ) all Pinoys of 18 - 30 will be allowed to work in New Zealand, on a tourist visa for up to a year in their chosen Field.

This means a reciprocal arrangement the other way..... I guess.

This also means that we should be seeing cheaper airfares, and the possibility of more airlines servicing New Zealand and the Pi Islands next year !!!

I forgot to add.

 

Some district offices have like an agency in locations that only operate once a month or once a week. These don't get listed on the Bureau website.So, there may still be some official office to have the extension done in Roxas City.

 

You could also pay a travel agent to arrange an extension for you.
