When you reach the point to where you are wanting to establish Permanent Residency, during the 1st Year [Probationary], you are forbidden to leave the country, you can fly anywhere within the Philippines, i.e., Manila to Cebu, Manila to Dipolog, and back, etc., but outside the country during this probation period is not allowed. After you get your permanent ACR card, you still have to get permission to leave the country.
