Flying into the Philippines without extended tourist visaIn January I will be flying into the Philippines, I will depart a month later. I was planning to get a 21+ days visa extension while I'm in the Philippines, but I'm wondering if my airline company (cathay pacific) will let me get on my flight without a valid visa for the entire period

2it would save you money to get a 59 day visa from a philippines embassy overseas
as the cost of a 59 day visa from a philippines embassy cost from php1250.
but if you got a 38 day visa extension when you got to the philippines it
would cost you php3030. so it costs you $38 more.

3interested in same info, but for Jetstar, flying in from Tokyo.
asean, the problem with the visa in advance is that the embassy in London (and presumably others aswell) asks for a load of stuff, including hotel reservations, etc, which might be more hassle than paying the $38 more, depending on how many nights reservations they ask for - can you get away with booking just the first few nights on hostelworld?

4the philippines embassy in london did not ask me for a hotel resevation.
and by getting the visa in london I save 22 pounds.
I have also go visas from the philippines embassys in bangkok and laos and did not need
to have a hotel resevation.

5nice one thanks,
I foolishly thought this was the London embassy website:
as it's the first thing that comes up in my search engine, but the info they give is in fact bo****ks.
It seems the application form does ask for a name and adress of a reference in the Philippines, but I guess the address of a hotel will be good enough.
