Hi Canounggoy, usually the Philippine Bureau of Immigration (PBI) posts this annual check-in event on their website but this year I didn't see anything, they do have the online form they have you fill out for your ticket number it's off to the left if you scroll down the link is located in the blue box, this form, 5 pages of information to fill out, some of this might be N/A especially if you're not on a work Visa and it can be saved to a USB and when printed out its one page.

The PBI Official Facebook page seems to be more up to date on happenings including business hours and if they are open. https://www.facebook.com/officialbureauofimmigration

Did my annual report in Santa Rosa never even entered the office ! Gave the security guard my acr and passport and the fee showed him all my receipts from 2011 which he said was not needed .
He them took the acr, and passport and fee into the office told us to sit and wait , 5 mins later all done !
Oh and the S&R garlic pizza and fries was great.

Well guess that's why we are here to learn how expats stay in the Philippines. Just got ACR-I card, It says tourist which I am. Reading the PBI advisory it says all registered aliens must report. Go to PBI website
ANNUAL REPORT
Who can apply?

All registered aliens and ACR I-Card holders except Temporary Visitor’s Visa holders or Tourist Visa holders
It says this. So looks like I don't report, will ask when I extend in February.

You will get charged 310 when you extend in February. Everyone gets charged for the Annual fee, people on Tourist Visa pay when they extend their Visa in January or February.

I went to Robinson's in Dasmarinas to the satellite Immigrations office (1/22/2019) to do my annual check in. No wait this time - he took all 4 ACR cards of those 4 wanting to check in at one time. Never asked for any ID, passport or past receipts. He did his research or whatever he does check and then called us in and gave us an unofficial receipt in addition to returning our ACR cards and told us to wait until called for by the cashier. We handed the "unofficial receipt" and 310 pesos to the cashier and were given an "official receipt" and sent on our way. Total time was around 30 minutes on station. I will NEVER go on the first day again...lol live and learn.

An update. I'm on a BB and holding a ACR-I card Tourist. Went to Davao Immigration today to make an annual check in and I was told, no need as your ACR is tourist. I was able to extend my visa for an additional 6 months for P8,440. All done in 30 minutes.

Just did my annual check-in here at the Iloilo Office. Even though I had everything related to my status with me in a large envelope, all they asked for was my ACR Card. Took about half an hour.

Same here in Olongapo. Handed the guard my ACR card, paid in about 10 minutes, and I was gone!
