Visa Extension

(1/22) > >>

OldSalt:
I head in to the local (Lapu-Lapu) BIS in a few weeks to get a 59 day ext. Will I need a \'passport type\' photo? When I got original 59 day visa from the Philippine consulate in San Francisco I had to give them one (1) photo. Just trying to make sure I have everything when I show up and not have to spend the day chasing around town getting all the \'surprise items\'.  Thanks,

oldsalt

Yes you will......however don\'t sweat it .....Filipinos are an enterprising lot ....where there is a need there wil be a supplier close buy.

I needed exit clearance the other year and needed additional photo .....a 2 minute walk and I had what I needed

Get a few extras and keep them in your wallet, it is surprising how often you need them. Every time you apply for something you seem need either 2x2 or 1x1 photos.

I will just tell you my experiences.  I have extensions from the BI office in Tuguegarao and Manila and I did not have to provide photos.  However, in Tuguegarao they wanted a copy of the front page of my passport + a copy of the page that showed the most recent extension.  In Manila I had a travel agent take care of it and they just took my passport (and a lot of money).

If this is your first 59 day extension you will also need to get an ACR-I card.  For tourist visa ACR-I cards they just scan your passport photo for the ACR-I card.

Your total cost will be about Php 7000; Php 4800 for the extension and about Php 2200 for the ACR-I card. 

If they don\'t issue ACR-I cards at the office you are going to they will most likely send your passport and ACR-I card application to Manila.

I also, have never had to provide photo\'s upon getting extensions in Cagayan de Oro.

You do have to supply them for the ECC (Exit Clearance Certificate) tho\'

Cost was Php6,998.00
