I went in to immigration today for an extension and below are the following updates as of June 1. 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. Only a few things but I think can save headaches if this is known.
