Response to your request

We were able to determine that this particular information is already available online and therefore cannot be counted as a valid FOI request. You may retrieve your requested information from BI website immigration.gov.ph or you may click the link http://www.immigration.gov.ph/images/Advisory/2021/03_Mar/05/002.jpg for additional requirement for Filipinos Traveling Abroad. 

Thus, regarding your inquiry on the rules of Filipinos traveling abroad with Philippine passport with less than six months validity you may click the link https://immigration.gov.ph/faqs/travel-req if the travel is for tourist purpose. However, if the traveler/passenger is an immigrant or an OFW to the country of destination, you can be allowed to leave/depart even with Philippine passport which is less than six (6) months valid.
