Message for U.S. Citizens:  Updates to Philippine Bureau of Immigration Appointment Requirements 

Fully vaccinated foreign nationals, including U.S. citizens, no longer require an appointment to access services from the Philippine Bureau of Immigration (BI).  Unvaccinated or partially vaccinated individuals must continue to book an appointment online to access BI services.  Vaccinated individuals must present their vaccination card/certification prior to entering BI facilities, which generally are open from 7 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. Monday through Friday, except for Philippine holidays.  More information is available on the BI website.
