I am aware with an American passport i can travel to the Philippines and stay for 30 days,but what is the process of getting an extended visa if i choose to stay longer and what is the cost?

Before the 30 days is up you need to get a tourist visa, start at 29 days then every 2 months until 3 years. You will then need to leave the country and return to start again. A day trip to Hong Kong will suffice. I'm sure someone will be along shortly with the costs

Your extension for 2 months will run a little under p3k...  Your ACR card will cost more once a year as well as p700 once a year for your Exit fee...  Yeah,, I get it every year...  I guess it's their price as a Tourist Visa doesn't require the Annual Report..  Anyway, do the 2 month extensions as it's cheaper than doing 1 month at a time...  The 6 month one doesn't exist anymore...

Here is what it cost me to stay 3 years on a tourist visa before making a visa run.  This ended in 2015 but the costs are still very close.

The 6 month tourist extension...  Had a 4 initial name but I forget what it was...  Anyway, it was dropped when the mess with BI working to rule happened...

Love the spreadsheet, and data looks more than legit... now pay yourself minimum wage for the time it took/spent ... I'm betting that it doubles the cost...or more... you think ????

I'm retired so I don't even make minimum wage!

Including your time and transport costs would certainly increase the cost, but that varies a lot for each person.  In my case, the Olongapo City extensions take about 30 minutes door to door from my house.  When I went to intramuros, I had other reasons to go and it was not just for the extension.

I am on 13a now and that also took a lot of time and money to get, twice.  And they rape you on various fees every time you need to leave the country.

When was it dropped? I am currently on a 6 month extension and plan to renew for another 6 next extension month.
