Default Visa Runs

I know some people do that have only a tourist visa, how hard is it to get a Visa to say China or Vietnam? Do you prepare well in advance?

Check out this link China From what is on that page, you have to get a visa prior to departing for China or Vietnam. You have to apply at their Embassy or Consulate. On that page it also states that you have to do this for HK and Macau. I last visited both in 2011 and 2012 without needing anything prior. I guess the rules have changed?

Unless you are on a Balikbayan Visa, the tourist visa run is down to only every 36 months now.

You don't need a visa for HK and Macau. What it say is that you need a multi entry visa for China should you want the visit them once you have entered China as you will need a visa to re-enter again afterwards.

Your throw away ticket can be for any destination outside the Philippines.
