I need some information on where I get a visa to enter the country. Do I need to get one prior to my arrival or can I get one upon my arrival. Coming from the U.S.. I know I read this information somewhere here before, but for the life of me I can not find it.

you can't stay in the blessed nation of the Philippines for longer than 21 days without giving the blessed nation some money. In order to expedite this procedure, they have hit on this idea of dotting these Bureau of Immigration offices around the country to pick up the cash.

Being a US citizen U automaticily get a 21 day visa upon entry. The Customs will stamp your passport with a departure date thus the 21 one day visa, do not stay longer than that without buying a extension (  Bureau of Immigration offices) while U are still in your first 21 day stay  in the PI or U will face a fine on your departure. So U do not really get a Visa paper form, but a stamp on your passport telling U when the 21 days expires...

But U must have fun on your trip or everyone will be disappointed in you ... lol ... :yahoo:

USA citizens aren't preferred. Israelis and Brazilians, get 90 days on arrival not the 21 everybody else from a non-fleapit country gets.

If you staying more than 21 days get a visa from one of the RP Embassies in the US before you come.  The you'll get 59days  on arrival before you have to extend.  Saves $$ and a trip to the BI.

Can I pay 120.00 and stay for a year?

 

NO. The six and twelve month visas are multiple entry visas, valid for one year. During the six month or twelve month terms, you may enter and leave multiple times, but only may stay 59 days each trip, prior to getting a visa extension.

 

You with me here?

Interestingly, Brazil is one of the few places a Filipino passport can travel to without a visa. But good luck getting there without traversing somewhere requiring one.
