Hhahaha.. Yeah for a 7:30am interview being there by 7 am is just right. Ask the guard right away the line for immigrant Visa, the longer line is for Tourist Visa.

Yeah haha thank you. My schedule is 6:15am so probably I'll be there early, I wanna be first in line because I have my flight back to Davao at 6pm and I need to be checked out in the hotel by 12noon. I dont wanna pay another 3k for just a day stay. Too much. lol

well from 6:15 you should be done early. 6pm is a good time, you can still eat lunch before heading to the airport.

of course, we don't want to pay for that. I always request late check-out :) when travelling. most of the time it works until 1pm. All the best sister :)
