Philippines Law can be a minefield, when you first arrive in the Philippines it might seem like there are very few laws because so few of them seem to be enforced, however don’t let that fool you there are many laws and at times they are enforced. 

Often when researching a law in the Philippines you will think you have found the law which applies but if you keep searching you will find other laws that also apply. 

Some laws in the Philippines come under other laws were you would not suspect them to be, for example the laws on noise comes under the Clean Air Act and the Pollution control act. 

While it may seem that laws in the country are not enforced things are starting to change and with more and more people having access to the internet the law abiding citizens of the Philippines are starting to find a voice as they realise they are not the minority but the majority.
