Just my opinion....but, I'm sure there have been many instances that foreigners have over stayed their visa, probably by accident. I'm pretty sure that the BI will not immediately arrest, jail and deport you. As stated above, if you come clean, tell the truth about what happened in your situation, the BI official will probably give you a few days to update your visa....and inform you the consequences if you don't. Again, as stated above, contact the American Services at the US Embassy for the "official" word on fines and penalties for overstaying visa.

I ask my travel agent that also does visa service about my friendís dilemma (stupidity?). After his first extension expired he realized he missed the date for getting a new one. He said he was going to get a lawyer to settle it. Yes that is stupid, I told him pay the penalty and forget the lawyer! 3 years has passed and he has done nothing. My travel agent said he will be blacklisted by immigration if he has no good excuse to tell them. I did hear that Dennis Rodmanís father that lived in Angeles was deported for the same reason. I do not know if he was blacklisted.

I really don't understand. Blacklisted YES deported Yes. If you don't care why should BI be concerned. STOP shirking your responsibilities. No sympathy from this person. This is what give foreigners a bad name. You are not better than anyone else.

My friend had a major stroke and since then he has trouble doing anything. His judgment is in the pits! Everything he does is wrong! My big regret was that I encouraged him to move to the Philippines. I try to advise him because I do feel a bit responsible. I have already told him if he gets in trouble do not ask me for money. I know of a guy in Cebu that was also in this situation. He was deported but NOT blacklisted. That was 10 years ago and I do believe they are a lot sticker now.

I really don't know if I can go this month either. I am fine paying the P500 penalty. I just cant afford giving out P4,000 this month. Will I be fine ?
If you are at the stage that you cannot afford handing over PHP4,000 then you need to seriously consider returning to your home country. The inability to pay this amount means there is not enough slack in your finances to deal with any sudden emergencies which may arise; and they will. Developing nations are not the place to find yourself when you are broke.

Well I am not broke just last month got swindled out of money, and had to work to earn up again. I will just go by the Swagman travel agency and renew and pay P500 fee + their charge and let them handle it. Do not think negative guys. I was just ask your opinion on it. However I am sure it would be fine. There are some I read that overstayed alot longer than I have. As I been told by many foreigners the immigration just want their money. I am sure they mean no harm.
