You get the ECC from the BI a week or two before you travel. You will also pay the travel tax on exit at the airport, something like 1600 pesos. This is on top of the terminal fee.

If you or your spouse used to be a Filipino citizen, then you come home or enter the country as Balikbayan. You are given the privilege to stay one year. Both your passports are stamped but make sure you have proof that you are married. Balikbayans are not required to have on going air tickets. When you leave the country and come back together, you are given again 1 year stay.
I am a Balikbayan and we enjoy this privilege.

I've heard this said before on forums but nowhere have a I read this on any government website, and I've looked. Oviously the balikbayen doesn't require an onward ticket but regarding the foreign spouse I only ever read that an onward ticket is required. Perhaps you could point me to the appropriate regulation.

THAT is definitely an awesome tidbit of info. I always assumed it was immigration who wanted it.... hmmm... I guess of all the times I've passed through NAIA I've never been asked.

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.

All confusing as heck to me and it seems like there's no place to get the true story besides this board, not that I don't trust you guys!

Sounds more and more to me like its so much easier to just keep using Balikbayan status except for the annual trip to reset it. Besides that hassle is there any real advantage to getting something permanent? Besides banking locally and maybe local health insurance? I guess those are biggies though.

If you are married to a filipina you will be covered by her Philhealth and not all branches, note I said branches, require an ACR. Otherwise just get a join accoint with the mrs.

With an ACR you can get a driver license and a local bank account. If over 6 moinths you need an ACR even if on a tourist visa.

The more I learn the less likely I will be to get anything other than a tourist visa and extensions.
