However, guests have to pay P8,000 each and endure hours of standing in order to see the international beauties in person.

Tourism Secretary Wanda Teo explained: “Guests will have to stand throughout the show. That's around four hours.”

SRO tickets were made available after tickets got sold out. These tickets can be purchased online or at SM ticketing counters.

Guests and ticket holders are encouraged to come to the venue as early as possible as they have to undergo thorough screening as well as inspection procedures to be carried out by the Philippine National Police.

Duterte will not declare January 30 a non-working holiday

Despite the call for the President to declare January 30 a non-working holiday to make way for the coronation night of the 65th Miss Universe Pageant, President Duterte made no declarations, according to Executive Secretary Salvador Medialdea.

Quezon City 2nd District Representative Winston Castelo urged Duterte to declare January 30 a special holiday to allow Filipinos to witness the highly anticipated beauty contest and support the country’s bet Maxine Medina.

"It would be a pity if our countrymen miss the opportunity to witness in their own backyard a contest where Filipinas have proven to excel and become certified champions on beauty and brains,” Castelo said.

A memorandum circular previously issued by the Palace ordered that the pageant should not disrupt work and services in government offices. It also ordered that government funds should not be used for the hosting of the international event.
