Yep--this is the way to go!
Cheap day trip to Singapore--then back to the PI.

Sounds great, are there any long term non-marriage things that can be done, even if it takes several years?

So it's really that simple? nothing complex or hidden traps to encounter?
Wouldn't even need a hotel in some cases. Fly out late night PH time (say before midnight) so that their passport says they left on that date, then land and take another flight back straight away and re-enter the PH on a different date.

As long as you have at least one calendar day between your departure date and arrival date and you are good to go. I went to Singapore and never left the airport one time lol. I like to make more of a little holiday out of now though, went to Malaysia for four days last time.

Tickets are cheap, $50 on average for a return. Just remember, that when entering the PH, any tourist has to show that they have a ticket to fly out of the PH in the future. This means that they will have to buy a second ticket that is literally going to be thrown away (another cheap one going to somewhere that wont be used). They will not let anyone on a plane to the philipines if they do not have a ticket showing they will be leaving the country.

Of course, in the future, if your brothers find a woman to settle down with, the process gets even easier once married.
