You positive on that? Do I still need to get exit clearance?

Any idea if they charge by the day or just one straight fee for up to a month overstay?

Re: Anyone to ask about living in the Philippines?

Some people get told to go pay the overstay at immig office and miss their flight, some people are allowed to pay at airport, theres no consistency

Def need to go do exit clearance so might as well go extend visa and do exit clearance at the same time

Thanks for the heads up, will definitely go down there. Is there any option for extending a few days or probably not?

Re: Anyone to ask about living in the Philippines?

I think I remember reading someone was able to extend just a few days, yes, but there's no consistency between immigration offices

Re: Anyone to ask about living in the Philippines?

My friend overstayed 6-7 months and just went to the main office yesterday(they won't process long overstays at other locations) and his bill was about 20k php total. That included the affidavit for overstaying, the exit clearance, and of course all the visas and motion for reconsideration/ fees.

You definitely will need the exit clearance if you have been there for 9 months consecutively. I would try to go there asap if your flight is on the 28th.

Anyone to ask about living in the Philippines?

Could be wrong here... but I think they take your fingerprints or whatever and make sure you haven’t committed a crime

Think it’s if you stay longer than 6months. Otherwise I don’t think you can leave

What exactly are you looking for? If you want high end chairs, try:

http://www.ultramodular.com.ph/products/seatings/
http://cwc.com.ph/type/seating/

If you don't want high-end, there are many options.

Yeah it's stays 6 months+ and in my case it took about a week for them to process it or whatever. So dont expect to get it in one visit the day before your flight.

I believe jspill is the resident uroligist here. Zithromax or doxycylcine, your pick.

Cebuanos def way cuter but my god this city is so dead. All girls on mango / waitresses are all the same quality as infos crush

You def need a buddy in this city to take advantage of all the clubs and fancy bars where going alone is the worst/weird

Need to find some Filipino open Karaoke/live band type places... if any suggestions?

Re: Anyone to ask about living in the Philippines?

If you are planning to pay in cash then ask the floormen for a room. There is a racket in Manila over free rooms. People will win them, sell them to a floor man or hostess etc. Then that person will try to resell it at a higher price.
