Visas, Permits Immigration for Foreigners in the Philippines
If you will not be relocating to the Philippines and wish to stay in the Philippines longer than 21 days you will most likely be required to obtain a non-immigrant (temporary) visa. Generally non-immigrant visas are issued for travel to the Philippines for a specific purpose and for a set duration. Aliens entering the Philippines may qualify for the following visa categories:

Aliens admitted as nonimmigrants cannot remain in the Philippines permanently. To obtain permanent admission, a nonimmigrant alien must depart voluntarily to some foreign country and procure from the appropriate Philippine consul the proper visa and thereafter undergo examination by the officers of the Bureau of Immigration at a Philippine port of entry for determination of his admissibility in accordance with the requirements.

Brief History of Freemasonry in the Philippines

Masonic Order in the Philippines was banned by royal decree on January 19, 1812. Freemasonry began in Medieval Europe as a guild for stonemasons but lived on as a fraternity organization. Shrouded in secrecy, it had often been judged as a conspiracy of different Masonic groups and had long been banned by the Catholic Church at the time. Finally, in 1889, the Logia Revolucion was organized by Graciano Lopez-Jaena, linking the masonic structure to the Filipino ilustrados like Jose Rizal, and later on, to the Katipunan which launched the first nationalist revolution in Asia.
