As I entered the immigration area I asked a pinoy airport worker wheres the office to apply for the visa extension? He told me to go to lane #1. I wasn't sure if he understood my question so I just entered the normal rope passport lines. As I got  to the counter I asked where do I apply for the extension. She asked me do I have a outbound ticket from Phls and I showed her my itinerary. She walked me to the side desk and another official took my passport and  P3000 and walked away. Less than 10 mins later he came back with my passport done and he told me to go to the now empty line #1. That was a relief because the other lanes were a mile long by now! Next trip I will go directly to lane #1 and get the ball rolling from there!

For those who are unaware, the process is roughly the same at the Manila Airport. Perhaps one day they’ll also make it possible at Clark too.

  I never had to do extensions and thought all that was taken care of at an immigration office.  So, I have some friends arriving mid October and their visit requires an extension of one day which they understand.  If I am understanding this correctly, they can get their extension at the airport upon arrival thus avoiding an immigration office all together?:89:

Yes.  Provided there is an Immigration Official in the airport office who is authorized to do it.  @AlwaysRt does it quite frequently.

If they know they need to extend by a small amount why not get it before they leave the US.

No, I don’t know where it’s at. I’d just approach an airport or BOI official and inform them of what you need to do, then follow their instructions.

It’s cheaper (and faster) to do it at the airport. Plus no round trip FedEx or UPS fees to pay nor do you pay an express fee (so it’s actually about 500-800 pesos less then going to an immigration office) or have to fill out any forms and provide photos.

Simply give them your passport and the roughly 2,700 to 3k fee (it’s never been the same amount, lol; and they will need to have pesos) and that’s it. Over the years I’ve done it often and the longest I had to wait was about 15-20 minutes. And every time I’ve been escorted to the front of the line (usually lane 1; which is for crew and diplomats).

Thanks, I will advise them to source some pesos before their trip.

That may not be possible, best to change a few dollars at one of the many banks in the terminal.
