A Word of Advice
The Dumaguete Field office is quite small and very busy throughout the year. You can speed up the process by being prepared. Have all your papers ready, bring the required printouts, copies and/or pictures. Please don’t waste the time of the staff and all others waiting to report just because “you didn’t know that…“).
Don’t rely on “fixer” or other expats who heard from a friend to do it different. Plenty of expats created a huge chaos in 2014 with trying to implement their own rules how to proceed, spreading false rumors and talking nonsense all over the internet, in McDonalds and all other expat meeting points
The website of the Bureau of Immigration is very informative and all required info can be found there.
Keep in mind that it is only one or two days out of 365 and a few Peso, which enables you to stay legally as a guest in the Philippines. Think about that and proceed with a smile
