Even after reviewing various online videos, I remain unsure regarding the best way to approach arranging a trip I may wish to extend beyond 30 days. This involves three points: (1) visa extensions; (2) onward ticket; (3) (a long shot) cost of flight schedule changes on Eva airlines. I am aiming for a trip of about six weeks days and expect to fly on Eva Airlines. I am a U.S. citizen and will fly from Seattle to Cebu. My initial understanding is that one can readily get a 30 day visa at the airport upon arrival in Manila or Cebu, and that one can get an extension if needed after entering the PI. My question is what is most advisable, not merely what's possible. (1) For a sixty day trip, should I arrange the visa from within the U.S., or obtain one at the Cebu airport? (I'm in the Tacoma WA area, there does not appear to be a Philippine consulate nearby). (2) If I arrive with a round-trip ticket, is there any need for an onward ticket for a 6-week trip? (apologies for re-asking this question, but last time, it might not have been clear that I was arriving with a round-trip ticket). (3) This is pretty detailed, but I've had trouble getting this answered elsewhere. I am trying to determine the cost to cancel or reschedule flights on Eva Airlines. Their web site states that reservations canceled within 24 hours of purchase are eligible for a complete refund, but doesn't say what they charge for a change made more than 24 hours after purchase. On this topic, any feedback on Eva or any competitive airline (that flies out of Seattle) would also be helpful. Thanks in advance for any help the board can provide.
Have to say how the department has improved since moving from the old building in Mandaue to JMall, Did my 2 month extension today, which will take me up to 24 months..... arrived at 9.06 , I had my documents pre prepared and duly handed them in, place was filling up, all seats bar one taken with several people standing....called to pay my fees within 8 minutes, having paid my fees, i sat down expecting at least a wait of half an hour or so.....when....name called,visa stamp in passport completed and i walked out the door at.....9.34 !! Had a coffee....
