If I come in on a tourist visa and stay for 60 days.
How long do I need to be out of the country before I am eligible to get a new 30-60 day tourist visa? And return?

I desire to travel around for several months, explore the country and see if and where I might want to live.

Thanks.

In your home country, most embassies will grant you two months of visa clearance before you enter the country. This is providing if there’s no outstanding issues. The two months seems to give travellers a little more time to get things in order to visit the Bureau of immigration office to extend it three or six months down the road. Make sure you have a bona fide ticket out of the country before the 60 days expires. Some popular choices are Hong Kong, Penang, Saigon, and so forth. Just picked the cheapest ticket out of the country and it’s usually around $50 or so. Air Asia usually has seat sales on or Cebu pacific. I’m not a fan of throwaway tickets rental tickets- I’ve seen too many people get snagged at the airport with those. Some of the immigration officers recognize the sites that you buy them from and will challenge you on having a bona fide ticket out of the country within 30 or 60 days.

If you are from USA or Europe you can enter on a 30 day visa waiver. Then before the 30days is up go to a bit office and extend for two months then just before your 2 months extend for a further two months but you will have to pay for an acr card alien certificate of registration or something like that. Some bi offices will grant yo a 6 month visa but not all it's every two months. You can keep renewing your visa for a total of 36 months then you must leave, for 24 hours, then return and start all over again for the next 36 months. That is how it stands at the moment, whether it will change under the new administration only time will tell.

Steve - you can extend 60 day visa for longer when your in country . No need to leave . just make sure one arrival you have a departing ticket - 1 way - to a cheap destination at about day 50 , or 52 . just dont get on that cheap seat to wherever , and head down to BI office that day and extend your visa . you will need an address inside the RP and they can extend it the first time of 3 months more I think .... rinse and repeat for second time
