Bottom line is 01 March you could be charged as much as 4,000 peso's and could end up being a run around drill that takes hours, like they did me.

Standing in line I over heard conversation with others that lived on remote islands and had to get new cards (expired cards or ?), they don't do it the same day these guys had to wait 4 days and weren't to happy, if you have a satellite office and I think you do in Cebu I would get it out of the way.

Normal time frame for getting your card checked (they use the card like a credit card in a machine) and the whole process never takes more than 10 minutes.
Expensive lesson! Makes me wonder if that could be taken care of at a Philippine consulate in the States while there? They do most everything else and that would make it easy too.
