The Philippines: Yearly Foreign National Reporting Requirements for 2023

Last Updated on February 23, 2023

Key Points  

  • The government of the Philippines will conduct yearly reporting reviews of foreign nationals in the country from 1 January 2023 until 1 March 2023  


The government of the Philippines will require all foreign nationals in the country to report to an approved Bureau of Immigration between 1 January 2023 and 1 March 2023. During this appointment, foreign nationals will need to provide proof of: 

  • 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.
