Hi, you would need to prepare to pay the following:

Visa Fee at BPI of course - $131.00 or P5,402.00 based on last month's rate

Medical Exam Fee - about P7,500.00

Delbros (for Doc Verification Fee) - P650.00

Plane Fare - if you live in the province

Hotel and taxi - if you live in the province

Some other miscellaneous expenses for pictures, etc.

I hope this helps.

The one thing everyone has forgotten about is CFO you have to pay for that too. I would say it will cost about Five hundred US dollars ($ 500.00) for everything. That in not including any transportation or lodging cost you might have to pay for.

Good Luck and God bless. :thumbs::thumbs::thumbs:
