As my balikbayan visa runs out this month i went to the BOI a few weeks ago to ask a few questions about renewing it, got in mask on no problem. On Monday i went there to actually renew it and now you need a visor before the guard will let you enter, I'm not a medical expert but if you believe the figures for Dumaguete the risk of getting covid seems to be diminishing but the safety measures get more stringent. Anyway i gave up on that and just used the agency a few doors down, all went no problems. Got a message to collect my passport on Wednesday and when i went and looked at my passport no stamp ! the agency lady told me stamps not available so now i have to keep the receipt paperclipped to my passport as proof of having a visa and also my ACR card not available for around 2 months. Now i can just about understand plastic cards, number plates and a multitude of other things being out of stock but how can a stamp be not available. Anyhow i just took an extra blood pressure tablet and accepted the fact. PS despite the stamp i would still recommend using the agency before the BOI office.
