30 day Visa extension

Post New Topic

I am sharing with the forum my experience today renewing my visa. Upon arrival in RP on July 18 my passport was stamped with expiry on Aug. 17--30 day visa. I was NOT asked to show proof of a flight out of RP.

So as my 30 days was getting close I decided to renew for 29 days today, Aug. 8.

I am located near SM North and found online the forms, process and location for the Bureau of Immigration office nearby . I was able to print the one page form and complete it in 5 minutes or less. I had a little trouble finding the BI but found it and saw about 25 people sitting around causing me to fear a long wait.

But I went to the counter and presented my passport and form in less than 2 minutes. In 10 minutes he called my name and I proceeded to the cashier to pay the 3,130 PHP fee, including the 1k for expedited (I hate to wait). They took my money and paperwork and passport and again I sat . In less than 15 minutes I was called and it was done.

My message is, it is really easy and nothing to fear. Im now good to Sept 15 by which time I will be leaving RP for a week, so all good.

Hope this helps someone.

NextStage You will notice that the “Fast Lane” chargeson your receipt are the only one that has no account code for it. That’s because it’s the office slush fund that pays for their lunches and Christmas party. There is no fast lane. The other people waiting are there for other processes.
