  • A valid passport
  • A registration identity card (ARC 1-card)

What are the Changes?

The government of the Philippines will conduct a yearly review of foreign nationals, including those with work and immigration authorization in the country. Foreign nationals must report in person and cannot send a representative. If a foreign national fails to report to the Bureau in time, fines and penalties will be applied.
