and either a return ticket or a ticket to another destination outside
the Philippines you may enter without a formal visa and stay for 21

you may obtain it from the Bureau of Immigration.

the Embassy or Consulate in their home city.
You may bring in unlimited amount of foreign currency.
Upon Leaving: Any antiques you may have acquired during your stay must
be accompanied by a certificate from the National Museum. You may also
not take more than PhP5,000.00 (five thousand Philippine pesos) out
