Commission on Filipinos Overseas Hi, Ms. Elle. When u complete the counseling at PRISM, u need to go to the CFO office afterwards to get ur certificate. If u don't have ur visa yet by that time, u can register (and get ur sticker) at our NAIA extension desk (all 3 terminals). They are open Sunday to Saturday from 5:00am to 12:00 midnight. You can also call the CFO-NAIA at 8795685. Have a great week ahead!

Unfortunately, the CFO facebook information may not be as accurate as we'd all like.

Having read the quoted CFO facebook stuff before going to Manila for my finacee's interview, I looked up the CFO desk in NAIA T3 while I there awaiting her plane (this was on July 30, 2011). The CFO desk was empty. No one anywhere in sight. I walked around a bit and went back to the CFO desk again. It was still unoccupied.

On Wednesday, August 3, 2011, we went to the CFO office on Quirino Avenue (after the PRISM counseling session) to get the CFO completion certificate so we could, in theory, get a CFO sticker at NAIA after she receives her visa. When we asked the CFO office personnel about the CFO desks at NAIA, we were informed that it is hit and miss at the airport because there is *one* staff member who handles the CFO desks in all three terminals. In other words, depending on when you go there, you might find someone at the CFO desk in any given terminal, or you might find the desk to be rather empty, like I did.

Armed with this feet-on-the-ground surveillance data, we are no longer counting on sticker availability at the CFO desk at NAIA. We'll check the NAIA CFO desk when we arrive there enroute to the USA, but we're also planning plenty of time in our schedule to allow a round-trip to the more heavily staffed Quirino Avenue CFO office.

You need to call them ahead of time. Tell them your flight details so someone from their desk at NAIA will wait for you to give you your sticker.

thanks for the tip. Yes, if we do not get her sticker before we leave manila during her interview week before going back to her home, We will have to call and make sure someone is at the desk in the terminal at manila. We are planning to travel on a sunday based on the information. We can always go to manila for a quick day to get her sticker ahead of time. the connection is only two hours layover in manila. My hope is the CO will allow us to pick up her visa at the embassy later in the day or later that week. But then again, I do not know. Anything is possible.
