Visa Process In the Philippines, Student Visas (9F) are issued only to international students who are taking full degree undergraduate or graduate academic programs. These students are categorized as degree-seeking students. On the other hand, non-degree students, or students who are studying temporarily in the Philippines such as exchange students and cross-registrants, are not issued the regular Student Visas (9F). To study in the Philippines for a period less than one year (1 or 2 semesters) they are required however by the Philippine Bureau of Immigration to secure the TWO documents: 1. Temporary Visitor’s Visa (9A) and 2. Special Study Permit (SSP).

International students will also need to extend their Visitor’s Visa at the Bureau of Immigration every two months for the length of their stay in the Philippines and pay the corresponding extension fees. A 5-month stay in the Philippines might require 2 -3 visa extensions. See page 11 for estimated cost for Visa and SSP.
NOTE: Without the SSP, international students will NOT be allowed to enroll or register for classes in Ateneo de Manila University.

2 Visa Extensions - US$ 153
Special Study Permit - US$ 95
ACR-iCard - US$ 60
TOTAL - US$ 308
