The ECC can be done at the airport

Incomplete info

 

ECC can be done at the airport, if your stay not more than 1 year and your flight leaves within 24 hours

I will recommend that it is done at an immigration office

Balikbayans do NOT need the ECC if leaving within the 1 year, nor do they need to do the ARP

For 13A visa holders the ECC is done at the airport

It seemed very clear to me that you were talking about tourist visa holders, not just everyone.

The finger print machine was broken either multiple times, or over the Dec-Mar period, because I was at the office over that period and there were upset customers both times.

Is it fixed now? Can't say, maybe somebody knows?

I applied for my ACR card today, had my photo and fingerprints taken.  They didn't tell me when to come back and get it, should I go back in a month?

They used to say 4 weeks,  all ACR-I card are printed in Manila

What office did you go to ?  J-mall ?

I guess that you are on tourist status ?

Was this an extension after 59 days ??

Unless you need it I wouldn't bother until your next extension.
