7 Days before expiry?

12 posts in this topic

My 6 month VISA extension runs out on 9 May 2017

Am I right in thinking the earliest I can renew it is 2 May 2017?

Also... I may try to renew it in Cebu - where do you renew there and what days are they open - think it was in a Mall last time?

 

Thanks

I'm not certain but I would think you could renew before then.  JMall on As Fortuna.

5. How many days should I allot for the filling of my visa extension to avoid overstaying?

You may file for your visa extension application seven (7) days before your Temporary Visitors’ visa expires.

However, does that mean you can't renew more than 7 days before?  Filipinos don't think in terms of people wanting to spend money any earlier than required.  When I go to pay my property tax (like p1500/year) they calculate the the total and then I say, "Ok, I'll pay this year, next year and the year after.  Jaws hit the floor.

The question is about avoiding overstaying and the answer is "If you come in 7 days early you will certainly avoid overstaying.  Renew "up to" 7 days early would mean "no more than" but they don't say that.

Thanks... I'm stamped until 9 May 2017 - do you happen to know if they count the seven from the beginning of the day or end of it ?

I mean can I renew on the 2nd or 3rd ?

I have gone to the BI many times, to renew my stay at the beginning of the month of the expiration of my visa. So, even if the visa expired near the end of the month, I was able to extend it at the beginning of the same month.

Would be interested to see if they will still honor that.

2nd or 3rd should be fine. And unless you live on Mactan or have to go there for something else, JMall would be where you want to go.

I took a wheelchair bound friend to Island Mall about 2 weeks ago. The office was empty. In and out in about 10 mins.

But getting there is the pain.
