    Ok, so we all try to figure out the workings of phils, the immigration fees, etc. BUT, let's put it in perspective.....
    Would I rather be back in Houston, Texas, dealing with the US politics, dealing with the oil spill in the Gulf, dealing with the economy, the crime, and everything else there......or would I rather be here?

    At least here we can use "fixers" to get some things done. I just got my drivers license for 2500 pesos. No physical, no drug test, no written test, no driving test, no standing in any line. You gotta love this system.

    I believe that you just need an ongoing ticket. It could be to anywhere.

    Of course if you are married to a Filipina then you will have other options.

    Yes, any cheap throw away ticket out of the country is all that is required. Check out Welcome To Tiger Airways

    it is not about your experience, it is about the legal-situation. The only point you are correcy that it is not the passport-control, but the duty of the airlines.

    Of course hindsite is all 20/20 vision. And everyone above is correct as far as I know. It just has to be "into phils" and "out of phils". But, even knowing that ahead of time, it never dawned on me to get a "out of phils" ticket to the next nearest place (DUH!). So, I ended up paying $2,177.00 US and loosing the return half. Now I know (but too late).
