    3 weeks ago immigration here told me they no longer do exit clearance and i had to go to cebu, Yesterday a mate told me i could get it done upstairs above immigration here.
    I went to the office and was told yes and it takes only 2 days and the cost is 3000 peso .they also told me if i go to cebu it would take 2 working days to have it processed there , I have always had it done in 3 hours max before:o

    Wondering the exit clearance can also be processed @NAIA upon check-in for your outbound flight. Does anybody hear about this is true and what are the costs.

    Permanent Residents (13a) can get an Emigration Clearance Certificate at the airport; last summer was P2380 + P500 (express lane fee), but I don't kow about tourist visa holders. Along that line, does anybody know if you do multiple exits in a short period, do you require clearance each time? I can't find any info on the internet and I will be leaving the country 3 times between now and August.

    I am aware that an exit clearance is needed when leaving the country after more than 6 months, but didn't know I already paid for that when I apply for the 1st extension. This implicates even if I stay shorter than 6 months I still pay for an exit clearance..?? Besides when I finally apply for an exit clearance (at least in the past) BI still did charge me a fee? Well, as a foreigner I never understood why I have to ask permission to leave the country (always made me remember the situation during the old days in Eastern European countries) but now it seems to me they also charge me double. If someone can clarify, many thanks.

    I know of two people who have been sent to Cebu or Manila recently after being told by the Dumaguete bi you cannot get exit visa here anymore, I asked a friend to check on this and he said you can still get in Dumaguete. Strange!

    In your situation, I think you don't need to get an exit clearance when your staying in the PH between entry and exit is less than 6 months.

    I used to go abroad frequently until last spring. I then paid 1670p ECC + 500p Express lane fee on each exit, at the airport.
    As resident it doesn't matter how long you stay. You pay anyway.
    You also pay a ~1700p tax on your airline ticket. If you don't have it included in the price (marked on the ticket) you have to pay before they allow you to board.

    The purpose of the ECC is to make sure no wanted criminals, or people with pending cases are leaving the country. But, it doesn't seem to work. I have a friend with a case that has been going on for years, who has been able to leave the country for a month or 2 every year.
