Default Tourist Visa - 6 month

I have been living in the PI for 3 years now and so far it was all on the Balikbayan. My year was up last month so I went to the Marquee Mall to extend my stay instead of leaving the country this time. I asked for a 6 month extension which according to the BI website I am eligible for but they said I could only get 2 months.

I asked why and they said if I wrote a letter to the "administrator" I may be able to get the 6 month Vistor visa next time. Does anyone know what this is about?

I am guessing I write a letter asking for a 6 month extension and explaining why I want it over a 2 month? The reason is I don't plan on visiting the US until November and I would rather just do this once more versus making three more trips 70km away.

I need to go back next month and would like to have the letter ready to go.

Thanks,

Tim
