  2. i just come from philippine embassy. my god so much requirements including guarantee letter even though i am a visa waiver and having a child there. and alos application for visa must go through notary public which is another 100$ cost plus 60$ visa fee and IF IF IF it approve.
    what is this all non sense all about??? they can not even control virus by those stupid faceshield and masks and over acting protocols.

  3. They you Reekay for all that you do for us Ex-Pats. Helping with the understanding.

  4. will I need to get a round trip ticket to Ph or can I just get a one way ticket ,cause I plan to stay for a few months when it opens .tks

    1. @Flor Gaco same answer as here..

      (once borders open up again)… you can get just a one-way ticket to the PH… (and) also get a 1-way ticket to anywhere leaving the PH within 30-days. this is called your ‘onward flight’. some call it the throw-away ticket since you won’t be taking the flight, it’s just a requirement by immigration. so pick the cheapest flight from say manila to kuala lumpur or taipei for about $45usd. print it out to show when you arrive at PH immigration.

      once in the PH.. you apply for an extension during your first 30-days. but… again, right now no tourist visas are being granted at the moment into the PH.

  5. Hello all
    I have question
    What is the legality of having to have an acr card ?
    If one has a 13a visa do you really need to have an acr card? I know you need it if you want to leave the country
    But what if you decide just to stay in the Philippines until you die. What can they do? Deport someone who has a permanent resident visa ? Anyone know where the law states you need to. Have one (not just hearsay or they recommend etc) thanks

    1. ph immigration requires the purchase of the acr-card. if you refuse, they can penalize you as they see fit. having a visa does not guarantee entry or residence, so yes.. they could deport you if things got ugly arguing a refusal to obey immigration requirements

      plus, the acr-card is only about $80 once a year, so i don’t see what the big deal is.

  6. I would love the philippines to have
    “RA 2021”
    It’s ridiculous that the Philippines has
    An immigration law from 1940
    6 years before they became an independent country (1946)
    It would be like the USA using an immigration law from 1770 when it was a British colony !

  7. Strange that if the foreigner has the re-entry permit stamped in their passport that they want to see the receipt.

    1. @Reekay’s LifeBeyondTheSea Yhanks for the update. I heard about the tourist stamps out of stock but I did not know that re entry stamps were also out of stock …Sir …

    2. for about the last 2-years, immigration has been “out of stock” for passport stickers. so none is given. you are told to keep the paper receipt for your extensions.

  8. Personally I don’t think they’re thinking much if at all regarding tourist visas. So many waiting to came back in besides most likely a large amount of law abiding foreigners w/expired tourist visas who couldn’t leave & come back in during the past year or so due to the pandemic. Most of these would agree to pay past due fees & want to get things back in order which would also only help in bringing in $ for the country.

  9. Gio can hop on a plane and return to the US, but I can’t take a private six seat jet there… on a tourist visa . Crazy country!

    1. Crazy country? Why the interest to come in a crazy country? There are more than 200 good and sane countries you can freely go to. Why force or insist yourself to flaunt your riches in a poor crazy country when you can go to freer and more relaxed and welcoming countries? If you’re as wealthy as you claim to be, your personality doesn’t fit in the Philippines. You’re better off in Japan, Singapore, Europe and Australia to blend in.

  10. What will happen to the current foreigners living in the Philippines with a 3 years tourist visa when it will expire? Will immigration renew it or Not ?

    1. no, immigration will not renew a tourist visa after the 36-months are up. i know of one expat who went to manila to get a 1-month (37th month) extension, but that was only to arrange his travel-plans to leave. can’t continue to get extensions after that unless there is some dire medical reason preventing travel.

  11. I’m just not leaving when my 36 months is up. They want to go along with the Globalist agenda and scamdemic then there should be no national borders, right? We are Earthlings.

  12. Those who think the elites going to let this country or any other return to normal is deluding themselves unless they raise up and say no, everybody need to throw those mask chains off. Which I see in people is impossible. Everybody is mentally captured. Zombies forever

  13. Wow. I hope a lot of people did not rush out and buy plane tickets without fully understanding what the Bureau of Immigration said. It only applies to certain select people.

  14. My 3 years tourist visa is up in August it scares me so much that I know I have to leave the country I love and not be allowed back in

    1. I have the same problem…I’m going to Manila to see if anything can be done about it..maybe an extension…I’m not going if i can’t get back… I just had a house built…

  15. That’s what I figured. Just let us know when they reinstate the 30 day upon arrival visa endorsements.

    1. not until the PH Immigration dept announces that Tourist Visas are available again.

  16. Have you seen anything regarding 13a Probationary expiring while stuck out of country? Thanks buddy. Hope you’re doing well!

    1. For any and all immigration questions and help contact JRC in Cebu. !! They saved me when my tourist visa expired. Im married . They got me approved for my 13 A in Warp Speed. Good and Honest !!!
