  1. I read it the same way. I should be allowed to go out to take care of BI business. But BI will not allow seniors in. (at least Davao city BI)
  2. On July 1 davao city has started MGCQ until July 15. My extension was due April 21 but as a 70 year old I still don't think I can leave the house. Does anyone home if penilities and extra fees will still be waived during this period of time. Thanks Dave
  3. how to find these agents if can't leave the house? How to trust them with my money, passport. Can my fiancee go there for me on my behalf? Davao city Thanks Dave How to find these agents if I can't leave the house? How to trust them with my money, passport... Can my fiancee get for me on my behalf? She only has police clearance as ID Davao city office Thanks Dave
  4. I looked at a post from 2014 and it said p500 for late fee. I am now guessing that 1 day or 1 month the same fee. That was a 5 year old post. Is it still p500? Thanks, Dave
  5. I have been in PI for 6+years on a tourist visa. I buy my extension every 2 months Because of very inconvenient holiday circumstances I will pay 1 day late this month. (my extension expire on Sunday 21 but emmigration closed from 17 until 21 here in Davao City so I will be late paying first they open on 22. Can anyone tell me what the 1 day late fee for extension will be? Never been late before so I don't know. Is there any sympathy for the holiday circumances. Thanks in advance Dave
  6. I was not able to avail any of the promos you guys posted. but I did get manila To Macau for $89 (4040p). A bit out of my budget but I was running out of time Thanks for the replies
  7. Thanks for the reply. I can't find a destination "macua" Where was the starting point? Manila?
  8. This month I am going to Singapore from Davao city as part my 6 year exit requirement. But I have yet to find a reasonable prices throw away ticket for my return. My 3 year exit I had a throw away for $8 us. But I don't remember where from or where to. Getting old. Trying to search but I can't find a site that will let me search without putting in a start and end location or a date. Any suggestions on good sources for throw away tickets or how best to search for them? Thanks Dave
  9. Thanks for the replies. Its appears that the cheapest and easiest option is have a companion assist me. At least I have time to arrange the additional cost. I usually book my tickets 3 to 6 months in advance. Will I be able to book 1 of those ticked with no initial name? Because I don't know when I will be able to arrange who will be my companion. Thanks
  10. Thanks. I can get a letter from my doctor I think easy. My next visa extension is mid Aug so I can ask them then if that is acceptable. If my only need "health wise" is to be escorted do they just insist you pay the fee for a fellow traveler?
  11. I am guessing I already know the answer to this question but I thought I would ask the experts to be sure. I am an American living now in the Philippines for over 5 years. I am on a tourist visa. In 2016 I did my 3 year exit as required to Singapore. Before Feb. 2019 I need to go again. The problem is my health is so bad that I am not sure I can endure the exit especially alone (I don't even go to the corner sari sari alone) so my question is, if there is any kind of waver or penalty fee that would allow me to avoided this exit? Any suggestions would be appreciat
  12. I have a few "old person" difficulties and travel is hard but I would have been happy to make another trip to BI to claim my passport to save p1000. So I wonder if keeping a passport a few days is a office choice or a officer choice or just a decision made based on how busy at that moment?
  13. Went to Davao BI today. Arguably one of the least busy (or most organized) BI in the Philippines. Or I just always have good timing . anyway I turned in my passport and papers and set down. A few minutes later I was called to pay (I was first in the building). They asked for 1930 which is exactly "express line fee" less then normal. So I assumed they were going to keep my passport and tell me to come back another day, but to my surprise I was asked to sit down again after I played. Again, only a few minutes later I was called up to sign my receipt and get my clearanc
  14. Ok. I have been reading this topic carefully and I think I understand. And I also am a bit worried. I have been in the Philippines over 4 years (minus my 3 year exit). Never once late for an extension, exit clearance, 3 year exit..... Everything by the book. I thought. I just went back through all my receipts. Jan 5, 2016 - AR charge 300 Feb 3 year exit December 21, 2016 - AR charge. I am assuming due to me leaving the country so they got me twice in 2016. 2017 - extension in Feb - no AR charge. 2017 - extension in April - no AR charge So no
