    I will visit Peter Bueno at Dumaguete Immigration office tomorrow and find out the facts, if there are any, but if you say that the rules changed 3 weeks ago yet DavyL200 extended just last Wednesday without the need for an outbound ticket, then there may be more questions than answers.
    I also talked to three others who extended last week also and same thing!

    Interesting, but then anyone who has been here for a while knows that the only thing consistent is inconsistency. Maybe ***** the ****** needed to pay his Globe bill that day.

    what does not make it legal by any means

    unless have a permanent resident visa (no outbound required)

    my understanding is that this thread is about tourist visa and the length of it, there seem to be changes.

    Anyhow, thanls for the great info !

    Nope. This thread is about the need to have, or not have, an outbound ticket when extending a visa.

    The tourist visa and the length of it is in a different thread.

Since it's possible as a tourist to renew your visa up till 16 months and when specially asked for up till 24 months, ..
    Sorry Broadside,
    for missunderstanding that 11, 16 or 24 months have something to do with a length of stay and visa extensions, my bad. will sign up for a course in a university which can explain me what "month" stands for, if not related to dates and periods of time. Will come back after finding out!

    that tourists need a ticket to leave the country again is really old "news". I was asked once when checking in at KL. never at the airport immigration or any extension. As it is the law here, I would think they have all rights asking for it, diba ?

    If 30 dollar is a lot of money for a ticket for the original poster, he might want to consider the price he will pay for being married here (or anywhere in the world of course).

    I wish I had a 30$ outbound ticket from my 2 marriages ...
