If at all you decided to stay longer in the Philippines more than the duration granted by the Airport Immigration Officer, you may further extend it directly to the main office of Bureau of Immigration in Intramuros Manila or nearest branch to your location. While other expats prefer to go through an agency to process their visa extension, a minimal charge or professional fee is added on top of the bill to be paid by agency at the immigration office. 

Some foreigners in the country find themselves staying longer than expected due to so many reasons, tourist visa with ACR card can also be obtained.
