I went in to immigration today for an extension and below are the following updates as of June 1.
Only a few things but I think can save headaches if this is known.
- Extensions are now available BUT, limited to 30 applicants per day. (So go early)
- Exit clearances can be done in Manila if current stay is between 6 - 12 months.
- Exit clearance with stay over 12 months must be done at BI.
- Sweeper flights - she couldn't tell me, no knowledge.

I would suggest that those who need to extend should do it here now, if planning to do it in Manila like the BI suggest is a big gamble, if when you get there for some reason its closed (which is a absolute possibility in the current climate), or they could be endless line or a skeleton workforce then you wont be left board and no amount of reasoning will get you off the hook, be advised to do it here, and if you need to quarantine in manila factor that into your extension time when estimating the extension requirements...its your passport its your visa its your responsibility

I believe sweeper flights are outside of BI's control and are up to the embassy and airline making those arrangements!

took my own advice got there at 6.40 this morning, it was busy busy busy, and got number in the mid 2o's, they only process 30 per day (and this will be for all of june) anyone who has let the extensions slide for a few months as you were advised now has only until june 30th to catch up or you will be penalised for the months you did'nt extend, one good thing is that both girls are now processing so its not a long process really once the doors open, dont wander in after 7 and think you will get a number as it will be chock a block by then as a side note if your waiting in line dont start bitching and moaning about fans and its too hot and how the governor is a clown, and how cebupacific havent a clue and they should do this and they should do that, its just awful to listen to foreigners whinge and moan in top voice especially with no beer around
