Title: 30 day visa free stay start date
Post by: Lee2 on November 01, 2016, 01:19:10 AM
A lot of people may not know that the 30 day visa free stay does not include the day of arrival. What I used to do was plan to leave after midnight and go thru immigration before midnight on my last day, that way I got the first day and the last day without fear of overstaying. Of course if my flight were to get canceled then I would need to extend by getting a visa.

The reckoning of the thirty days (30) begins on the day after arrival in the Philippines. This visa-free stay allows for regular tourism and business meetings.
