From what I  read 4310 php for 1 to 29 days.  Not sure who you pay.

Say I stay a few days over my allotted 30 days entry.

 

Can I just pay a fine or exit fee at the airport?

 

Or is it a pain in the rear and you have to go to BI or some other type of building in Manila?

If you overstay a small amount of time then it's only a simple fine and you will be fine. I overstayed by 2 days a couple years back and it was a 3000php fine at the time. The fine is paid at the airport at immigration going out.

I understand the paying at the airport is hit or miss. Sometimes they offer that and then maybe 6 months later that is no longer an option.

That was the same cost for paying for the 59 day extension.  ;) At least that is what I paid a few years back.  

 

I always figured if a person has time to speed at the cowboy bar he could just as easily go down the street to BI and get the visa extension in his passport

Next time I come here I am going to bring my wife, get the BB privilege and let her go home after a month and I will stay for a few more weeks.

So you went to the Philippines without your wife???? Damn, my asawa would never let me go alone because she thinks I am some sext beast and worried that all the ladies will be hanging on me.

I am looking more serious at the SRRVisa, then the BB stamp or entering with your asawa is a moot point.     https://pra.gov.ph/srrv/

Dang. You could have gotten a new wife for the amount of money.  :rofl: And to boot you have a Jolibee's where you live so she doesn't have to go all the way to the PI for her fill. :D

I only spent a few days in Manila. 

 

I went to Coron and El Nido for 7 days, and spent 15 days in Davao City area, with travel time I only ended up in Manila for about 5 days and that was mostly to arrive at airport and leave from airport to USA.  I am not and never will be a fan of Manila.
