The more I read about the 13a, I wonder if it isnt just as cheap and much less of a hassle to stay on a balikbayan and make 1 day trip out of country each year.

Bill I believe that after your 13a is made permanent you only have a yearly reporting fee. Paul can let us know for sure.

You're right, p310 a year now, and you also have to get a new ACRI ($50) every 5 years I think.

 

CORRECT

Once you have the 13a permanent status, its virtually free. It costs 310 pesos for your annual report and there are additional fees each time you leave the country, roughly 2500 p, but I forget the exact amount.

 

The key difference between the 13(a) and BB stamp is that the 13(a) permits you to work but the BB stamp does not.

I have read many comments in the past year concerning fees/hassles, etc for foreigners living there, and as poor as the RP is, one would logically think the government would want want to make it VERY easy to live there due to the increase brought to the economy.

I suppose tho-that like the poor planning concerning everything(ie brownouts)the culture is just shortsighted and always will be.

(Clark Air Force Base and Subic Naval Base of course being prime examples)

I have chosen to live there and will just have to accept it.

Does anyone knows for sure about what kinds of fees and taxes an immigrant visa holder (13a) would pay each time while departing from the PH?

Also, how much exit clearnace fees a tourist visa holder (9a) would pay at the time of departing from the PH after staying less than 6 months in the PH? Can anyone tell anything about all this?

 

Thanking you in advance.

A 13(a) permanent resident would be subject to Travel Tax, Exit Clearance Certificate Fee, and the Departure Fee.

 

A tourist under 6 months is only required to pay the airport's Departure Fee. Over 6 months, and you would also need to secure an Exit Clearance Certificate from BoI.

P2,880 - Re-entry Permit

P1,620 - Travel Tax

P550 - P750 - Terminal Fee (depending on which airport - Manila or Cebu)

 

Yup ... that 2,880 fee is actually both an Emigration Clearance Cert. (ECC) and a Re-Entry Permit (RP)

Does it mean a permanent resident (13a) is subjected to pay all these taxes and fees each and everytime time s/he would depart from the PH regardless of the length of stay in the PH? Is this Exit Clearance Certificate fee including the re-entry fee for the immigrant visa holders?
