It's simple. When you come back into the country with an expired ACR-I card, they give you a tourist stamp. Your have thirty days to go into Immigration, fill out a form, fulfill their requirements (of which they give you a list), and turn everything in, or else you lose your 13A visa and have to start over. After two more months, you go back into immigration, and they give you your new ACR-I card.

At that point, you have two choices. You can either write a letter (along with another list of requirements) to the head of Immigration in Manila begging to get the stamp in your passport changed back to a 13A stamp (more drama), or you can fly out of the country again (to wherever) and get the 13A stamp when you re-enter the Philippines (with a current ACR-I card). I chose option 2, and I took my wife and daughter to Hong Kong Disneyland for a short trip.

Please clarify.  I have a 6:10 am International flight from Mactan Airport in 2 days.  Are you telling me I cannot get into the airport until 5:30 am?

I'm sure Smokey was referring to the check in counter.  That is pretty normal procedure

I'm sure he meant that the counter for his flight didn't open until 5:30 AM. With a 6:10 AM departure, I would imagine that the counter for your flight will be open by 4 AM (maybe earlier). The airport is open 24/7.

Presumably if you returned with your wife, you could get a Balikbayan Stamp and remain here for a year.

No way Mrs Smokey is coming back here !!  She love's the US, even though she works full time there.  Smokey wants to move there also but can't until he rids himself of house and vehicles .

As to the time pal said be here 4 hours before your 8am flight i go to check in pal says we dont open till 5 30 as to the older guy at the window is the new by the book employees the first girl did not want to stamp me at all.  The next guy young said i ill let you leave but your acr needs to be started all over when you come back i go to the boss he says get it reinstated when you get back i liked his ans better and agreeded i never carry my acr and never looked at the date i do the annual renewals but forgot the card also is a every 5 year thing i will let wife deal with it.  My card expired nov 30 2017
