Same Day Exit Clearances at J Mall???

Recommended Posts

Irenicus

Visiting the US this coming Tuesday.  Will have been in the Philippines 11 months and 2 weeks on tourist visa.  Will be in Cebu Monday morning and flight leaves Tuesday morning. Does anyone know if J Mall BI is still issuing exit clearances same day? (I will be at BI around 8 AM Monday.)  Last year it only took an hour or so.  I know I could theoretically get the ECC at the airport but I would rather have it done before I get there.  Thanks in advance.

I have not heard about any changes about ECC

The ECC can be done at airport if been in country less than a year and flight leaves within 24 hours

I would go to j-mall and have it done there, if problems you have the second option of having it done at the airport

Agree except I would go to the Mactan BI since you're going to Mactan anyway and they seem to be faster at most things.

We can't do it here.  J Mall is closest and I have never had an issue before with ECC's there.  I posted this cuz I panicked when I realized the plane was leaving Tuesday morning and not Wednesday morning.  Well, that, and I typically turn into an anxiety-ridden mess whenever I have to travel...

Thanks for the responses.

My info on this stuff is getting kind of old ..but, in the past, they did not do ECC.
Used Mactan for years, and only ever went to Mandaue/JMall was for ECC and that 1 off , biometric foreigner registration thing.

Maybe not.  I know they can only do certain things and the ECC is a fairly simply thing so I thought they could but maaybe not.

ECC is not that simple  earlier  as of  before the ARP  they needed to taken ink finger prints

After the ARP they already have the finger prints on electronic file

Mactan do not do the ARP  and may not have access to the ARP system

I got my last July a few days before I left for Vietnam.  ECC was good for 5 days I think.

When should I apply for an ECC?

A foreign national may apply for an ECC at least 72 hours prior to his/her departure from the Philippines.

 

Does the ECC have validity? Will I be able to use this multiple times?

The ECC is valid for one (1) month from the date of issue, however, you may only use this once regardless of its validity.

 

 

As far as I know immigration j-mall will do the ECC same day

the only time I had an ECC it was done in an hour and half,  that was including an extension
