What is Visa?

It’s an official endorsement that the passport holder is allowed to enter a particular country. It’s used to determine the following:

  • The duration of your stay
  • Date when you should leave
  • Dates when you can enter the country
  • How many times you’re allowed to visit a country
  • Details of your work rights and/or other labor-related information

Types of Tourist Visas

1. visa-free.

Visa-free allows you to enter a country without the need for a visa. You are given a specific amount of time for your stay.

2. VISA-ON-ARRIVAL

Visa-on-Arrival (VOA) is granted upon entry at the airport of the country you’re visiting. There is no application required beforehand. You will be assisted by the immigration officials who will be the ones issuing your visa after all required paperwork and fees have been taken care of.

3. VISA-REQUIRED

Visa-required needs you to apply for a visa in the embassy or consulate before traveling into the country you plan to visit (for business or tourist visas). You’ll be asked to provide supporting documents proving your medical status, financial capacity , prior travel history, and others.

eVisa is convenient as it allows you to apply via the internet. The actual visa is stored in the immigration’s database and a corresponding passport number will be linked to it for verification.

Requirements for Visa Application

Each country you visit will require you to submit requirements based on their policies. So don’t be surprised if the occasional hiccup occurs.

It happens.

However, there are documents and resources that you absolutely must have and prepare in advance. Having these will save you a lot of time and help avoid any hassles.

  • A passport that is valid for six months minimum
  • A completely-filled out visa application form
  • Previous visas
  • Passport photos
  • Travel and Medical Insurance
  • Proof of financial capacity

These are the most common requirements you should have with you always.

Make sure to visit the country’s official immigration website for details beforehand so you’ll know exactly what you’ll need.

Tips to Get Approved for Visa Faster

Here’s the thing about applying for Visas: It’s not 100% “standard” each time.

You might get approved without much fuss one time and then be rejected completely even when you submitted the same set of paperwork.

While the following tips don’t guarantee you’ll get approved automatically, they help in increasing your chances of getting approved quickly.

1. Complete and bring all paperwork and related documents

Embassy officials aren’t your teachers. You can’t simply say “ Follow up ko na lang later ma’am ” when you realize you forgot an important document.

They won’t accept it if it’s incomplete. Save yourself and others the hassle by being diligent in your preparation. Doing so ensures the whole process runs smoothly.

In completing forms, be thorough and accurate. During the interview, provide sufficient details but don’t go overboard.

It’s not about being “makwento” or casual to feign confidence. Just answer what they ask for in a polite yet confident manner.

2. Radical Honesty for the reason of your visit  

If Brother Bo Sanchez promotes “Radical Patience” as a secret to building wealth , you have to apply “Radical Honesty” when stating the reason for your visit.

Make sure to apply for the appropriate visa (student, visitor, are different) and be true in your intentions.

3. Proof of Financial Capacity

Here are some of the most common documents that might be required for proving your solvency/financial capacity:

Employed Person:

  • COE – Certificate of Employment
  • Most recent payslips
  • Income Tax Return (ITR)

Self-employed:

  • Copy of Business Permit
  • Tax statements
  • Bank Statement and Financial Reports (most recent)
  • Copies of credit cards, bank certificates, or bank statements (personal)
  • Proof financial assets
  • Documents proving period of time and date of retirement
  • Pension-related documents

Students/Minors

  • Sponsorship letter (from guardians/parents) with corresponding documents showing proof of solvency
  • Official documentation from school/university as proof of scholarship along with the complete details (duration, etc.,)
  • Proof of investments or financial assets
  • Copies of personal financial documents like bank statements and credit cards
  • Sponsorship letter with corresponding documents showing proof of solvency

4. Proof showing that you won’t be overstaying

Embassies want to see proof that you have strong ties here that will urge you to go back to your mother country.

This is to prevent risks of overstaying through illegal means. These are the most common ones:

  • Leave of absence or Certificate of employment
  • Proof of ownership of property or business
  • Documents showing proof that you’re enrolled here currently
  • Leave of absence
  • Letter from sponsors emphasizing reasons you won’t be overstaying

Non-Visa Requirements

1. Passport validity length

  • Check the expiration date on your passport and make sure it’s still good for 6 months.

2. Fingerprinting

  • Plenty of countries require that all visitors from foreign nations provide their fingerprints upon arrival. Anyone refusing to do so will not be granted entry or worse, be apprehended by authorities.

3. Blank passport pages

  • A good number of countries require visitors to have the minimum number of blank pages on their visas. Note that endorsement pages are not counted.

4. Criminal record

  • Some countries (e.g Australia, Canada, Fiji, New Zealand and the United States [351]) routinely deny entry to non-citizens who have a criminal record.
  • There are countries who will deny visiting non-citizens who have a criminal record. US, Australia, New Zealnd, and Canada are examples.

5. Vaccination

  • Almost all African nations require that visitors present an International Certificate of Vaccination prior entry. There are some countries that only require vaccination if they came from a known infected area or have visited one recently.

Traveling abroad has never been easier. Whether it’s on nearby ASEAN countries or other must-visit continents, the ability to travel visa-free is a huge perk for us Pinoys.

You get to bypass the arduous (and sometimes frustrating) step of applying for a visa, which is not really a hassle-free process here in our country.

Let’s hope more countries open their soil to Filipinos without the need for the visa, so we can get to experience and enjoy what other nations and cultures have to offer.

You should add Russia under the “E-Visa” category.

Filipino Visa Guide

Visa-Free Countries for Filipinos

There are many sites online that will tell you that you can visit over 50 countries with a Philippines passport visa-free – which is not true. There are only over 30 countries offering visa-free to Filipinos, and about 40+ offering evisa or visa on arrival.

Filipinos are very much aware that the passport they hold is not the strongest when it comes to travelling. According to CNN , Singapore is the strongest passport in the world, which allows Singaporeans to travel to 192 countries without a visa, while according to CNTraveler , Japan holds the number #1 spot with 193 countries.

Regardless, the Philippines passport is ranked #79 , which means there are around 66 countries that allow Filipino travellers to enter their country without a visa. That’s a long way down from its neighbour Southeast Asian neighbour Singapore or Malaysia, which sits at rank #12.

But don’t get discouraged, travel enthusiast Filipinos can still explore the world. I started travelling in 2013 , and 10 years later, I crossed my 30th country using only a Philippines passport.

I know that’s not really impressive, but it is still quite a personal feat for an average Filipino with limited income.

In this article, I listed all the visa-free countries for Filipinos to kickstart their travel adventure. I also included evisa or visa on arrival, since this type of visa doesn’t really require a complicated process.

WHY TRAVEL TO VISA-FREE COUNTRIES

I know many Filipinos dream of visiting Europe, the US, or East Asia. But these countries require you to apply for a strict visa application.

The good thing about visa-free countries is that not only are they affordable, but they help make your Philippines passport stronger.

A great travel history (regardless of whether it’s from visa-free destinations) showcases that travelling is your hobby, and you have a good history of not staying in one country as an illegal alien.

You can take advantage of these destinations to build up your travel history , which is great when you apply for visas in Europe/Schengen, Australia, Canada, and the US.

VISA TYPES THAT YOU MUST KNOW

a photo of two Philippines passport; the old one with punch holes and the new one - visa-free countries for filipinos

It can be confusing learning about visas since there are various kinds with different purposes, plus its relation between countries. To give you some ideas, I will discuss the common visa types to help you understand if you need to apply for a visa, pay for one, or not.

What is a free visa?

A free visa means you can travel to a country without applying for a visa in advance or paying any visa fee. Destinations that offer visa-free countries for Filipinos are usually located in Asia, Africa, and Latin America.

However, when leaving the Philippines and your destination is a visa-free country, the immigration officer (in the Philippines) will most likely ask you to prove that you are coming back to the Philippines or that you can afford this trip – especially for Filipino travellers going abroad for the very first time .

A proof includes but is not limited to:

  • return ticket
  • hotel bookings
  • tour booking
  • certificate of employment
  • business registration
  • bank statement
  • tax returns
  • school registration (for students)
  • proof that you can legally bring a minor with you abroad (for example, bringing a niece, nephew, your children if you’re separated or not married to the mother)

Upon arrival at your destination, the immigration officer there might also ask for your travel bookings such as flights and hotels.

What is an evisa or visa on arrival?

An evisa (e-visa) is an electronic visa that you can apply for online . All you need to do is fill in your personal details, travel dates, and point of entry and then pay the fee. – all done online.

Wait for a few business days, and you will receive your evisa. Depending on the country, you must have a physical printed copy of your evisa or simply show a digital one.

The validity of an evisa depends on each country (destination) . Usually, it is valid or allows you to stay between 14 days, 30 days, and even 90 days. The cost also rises the more days you request.

Some evisa sometimes don’t even ask you to pay in advance, such as Nepal. You will make your payment when you arrive at your destination and pay in major currencies such as USD, Euro, CAD, NZDand AUD.

What is visa on arrival?

A visa on arrival or VoA is a visa that you can receive upon entry or arrival at the destination. On a visa on arrival, you will be asked to show your flight out (return flight or flight to the next country) and pay the fee.

Just like an evisa, a VoA duration sometimes ranges between 15 days to 90 days and the cost varies too. Make sure that you have major currencies with you such as USD, GBP, and EURO for the payment. You will most likely receive the change in the local currency.

What is a transit visa?

A transit visa or a connection visa is when you need a specific visa to transit or connect to a specific country.

For example, you have a flight from the Philippines to France, but it has a connection to Turkey. In this situation, you will need to check with Turkey if you need a transit visa to make this flight possible.

In general, you don’t need a transit visa if you’re not leaving the airport area or the “transit area”. Not leaving this area means you will not be crossing the immigration area or leaving the airport altogether.

However, let’s say your flight from Manila to Paris connects to Tokyo . Usually, you don’t need a transit visa for Japan. Tokyo has two airports (Narita and Haneda). If you arrive from Manila to Tokyo in Narita, then your next flight also leaves Narita, you don’t need a transit visa. But, if you arrive at Narita airport from Manila, then your next flight from Japan to France is leaving from Haneda, then you need a transit visa. This is because you will have to leave the transit area and the entire airport to get to another airport.

This is not true in all situations. Some airlines will facilitate the transfer between one airport to another without you “technically” leaving the transit area, but it’s rare.

From Manila, the most common countries where you have to connect to get to Europe, North America, Africa, Latin America, Oceania, and other parts of Asia are Japan, Turkey, Hong Kong, China, Thailand, and Singapore.

These countries usually don’t require a transit visa if you’re starting in the transit area. T he two places that you must be aware of are the US and Canada . These two countries require you to hold a transit visa when connecting.

What is a substitute visa?

A substitute visa is when you have a valid travel visa or residency visa from strong countries such as the US, the UK, Canada, Australia, Schengen/Europe, New Zealand, Singapore or Japan. 95% of the time, that visa must still be valid.

If you’re holding such a visa from these countries and you plan to visit a country that requires you a visa, you can skip applying for that visa and substitute your other valid visa. That’s a mouthful and super confusing, so let me give a sample :

I have a valid tourist visa from the US, and I want to travel to Canada. Canada requires Filipino travellers to apply for a Canadian visa. But for me, I don’t have to apply for a Canadian tourist visa. Instead, I can simply “substitute” that Canadian visa with my US visa.

Does it make sense?

However, you must remember that each country or destination that allows substitute visas has a specific requirement for using a substitute visa.

Here’s a sample . For my trip to Canada, the only way I could use my US tourist visa as a substitute is to arrive in Canada by air . This means that if I am in the US already, I cannot cross the border to Canada by land. I must book a flight and arrive in an airport in Canada.

VISA-FREE COUNTRIES FOR FILIPINOS – PHILIPPINES PASSPORT HOLDERS

I categorised the list below to help you navigate the page. You’ll find how many days you can stay in each country while enjoying a free visa as well.

There are also tips on how to get evisa and visa on arrival, plus a substitute visa (if you hold a visa from the US, UK, Schengen/Europe, Japan, New Zealand, and Australia).

Guide : * (one asterisk) – stands for territories | ** (two asterisks) – stands for evisa or visa on arrival

I love travelling around Africa with my Philippines passport because there are many destinations in Africa Filipinos could go to without worrying about getting a visa in advance.

The only downside is making travel arrangements such as flights. Since there are no direct flights from the Philippines to Africa , you want to make sure you’re booking a ticket that connects or transits in a country that doesn’t require a transit visa for Filipinos.

Some destinations in Africa might also ask you to hold a Yellow Fever vaccination card , so this is something you must check in advance before your flight.

  • Benin** – evisa for 30 days and must carry an international vaccination certificate
  • Botswana – evisa for 90 days
  • Burkina Faso – evisa
  • Burundi – 30 days visa on arrival
  • Cameroon – evisa
  • Cape Verde – visa on arrival for 30 days
  • Cote d’Ivoire – 90 days
  • Democratic Republic of Congo – evisa for 7 days
  • Djibouti – 31 days evisa
  • Equatorial Guinea – evisa
  • Ethiopia – evisa or visa on arrival for 90 days
  • Gabon – 90 days evisa
  • Guinea – evisa valid for 90 days
  • Guinea-Bissau – 90 days visa upon arrival
  • Kenya – evisa for 90 days
  • Lesotho – evisa
  • Madagascar – evisa or visa on arrival for 60 days
  • Malawi – 90 days visa on arrival or evisa
  • Maldives – visa on arrival for 30 days
  • Mauritania – visa on arrival
  • Mauritius – 60 days visa on arrival
  • Morocco – 90 days
  • Mozambique – 30 days visa on arrival or evisa
  • Nigeria – evisa for 90 days
  • Rwanda – 90 days
  • Sao Tome and Principe – evisa
  • Senegal – visa on arrival for 90 days
  • Seychelles – 90 days visa on arrival
  • Sierra Leone – 30 days evisa
  • Somalia – visa on arrival 30 days
  • South Africa – evisa for 30 days
  • South Sudan – evisa
  • Tanzania – evisa or visa on arrival for 90 days
  • Togo – 15 days evisa
  • Uganda – 90 days evisa
  • Zambia – evisa for 90 days
  • Zimbabwe – 90 days evisa

East, South, and Southeast Asia

Asia is a massive continent with around 48 countries, but not all of them offer visa-free to Filipino passport holders.

On the other hand, Southeast Asia countries have great relationships with one another, allowing Filipinos to travel without a visa.

If you are building your visa or travel portfolio (this helps with applying for harder visas such as the US, the UK, Australia, Japan, Europe, Australia, Canada, and New Zealand), Asia is a great place to start.

You can travel to 17 countries in Asia without a visa , while there are lots of places to go to that only require an evisa or allow you to enjoy a visa on arrival.

This section though, only shows you the countries located in East Asia, South Asia, and Southeast Asia. Don’t worry; there’s a separate list for the Middle East and Central Asia.

  • Thailand – 30 days
  • Vietnam – 21 days – read my Vietnam visa guide for Filipinos

Central Asia

Central Asia is located in a region near the Middle East, just before you reach Europe. This is where you’ll find the “stans”. Most flights towards Central Asia have connections to China, Hong Kong, the Middle East, and Turkey.

There are also countries here that you can go to and only apply for an evisa or use a substitute visa.

  • Armenia – evisa for 90 to 180 days, or evisa for 120 days if have a valid visa from Australia, Canada, Japan, New Zealand, Russia, South Korea, the UK, the US, Schengen State, or GCC countries
  • Georgia – evisa for 30 days or use your visa from the UK, US, Australia, New Zealand, and the Schengen States
  • Kazakhstan – 30 days
  • Kyrgyzstan – 30-day evisa or visa on arrival
  • South Ossetia* – entry through Russia
  • Tajikistan – 30 days
  • Turkey: 30 days if have visa valid from the US, UK, and Schengen
  • Uzbekistan: – evisa for 30 days

Central America/Caribbean

The Caribbean or Central America is known for stunning islands and beaches (just like the Philippines!) and is a famous honeymoon destination. It is another visa-free paradise for Filipinos.

The catch is that most of the flights heading here connect in the US or Canada. These two countries require Philippines passport holders to hold a valid US or Canada visa or a transit visa to book those flights.

  • Antigua and Barbuda – visa on arrival if hold a valid visa from Canada, the UK, the US, or the Schengen State
  • Bahamas – 30 days if you hold a permanent resident card from the US or Canada
  • Barbados – 90 days
  • Bermuda* – if connecting through the UK or has a valid visa from the US, Canada, or the UK
  • Costa Rica – 30 days, can be extended up to 90 days
  • Dominica – 21 days
  • Haiti – 90 days
  • Montserrat* – evisa possible
  • Nicaragua – 90 days visa on arrival
  • Saint Kitts and Nevis – evisa for 30 days
  • Saint Lucia – 42 days for visa on arrival (6 weeks)
  • Saint Vincent and the Grenadines – 90 days
  • Trinidad and Tobago – visa on arrival

As Filipinos, we all know that travelling to Europe is one of the destinations when it comes to visas can be complicated and costly – but it’s definitely worth it.

A visa to Europe or a Schengen visa allows you to travel to 25+ countries with just one visa. On the other hand, it’s only valid for a maximum of 90 days. We are not here to talk about that, but you should check our guide on how to apply for a Schengen visa.

Unfortunately, there are no countries in Europe that give free visas to Filipino passport holders . There are destinations that allow you to substitute a visa or apply for an evisa.

You can check this compilation of Schengen visas from Europe .

  • Albania – visa-free if holds a valid visa from the Schengen State, US, or the UK, validity (visa-on-arrival or evisa)
  • Moldova – evisa
  • Russia – evisa for 16 days on specific destinations only

Middle East

The Middle East is a known destination for OFW (overseas Filipino workers). However, there are very few countries that actually offer visa-free to Filipinos in the Middle East.

It’s still a great way to strengthen your passport and travel history .

But, when these are your destinations, and you’re departing from the Philippines, you might raise a red flag. Immigration officers (on both sides) can automatically assume that you are heading to the Middle East to work or look for work illegally.

  • Bahrain – 14 days if you hold an existing Saudi Iaqama, entry via King Fahad Causeway Bridge
  • Iran – 30 days evisa
  • Israel – 90 days
  • Palestine – 90 days (entry only via Israel; days counted included Israel stays)
  • Qatar – evisa
  • Turkish Republic of Northern Cyprus* – 90 days

North America

There are only three countries in North America (Canada, Mexico, and the USA – some might argue Greenland but it’s a territory).

While there are no visa-free countries for Filipinos in North America , you can actually travel to some places here with a substitute visa.

For holders of valid US visas (tourist or resident/work), you can use that visa to enter and travel to Canada and Mexico.

For holders of valid Canadian visas (tourist and resident), you can use it as a substitute visa for Mexico.

  • Canada – you can enter here with a substitute visa, a valid US visa (must arrive by air)
  • Mexico – with a valid visa from the US or Canada, you can use those visas to enter and travel here

If travelling to the Caribbean is too challenging but you want those fine white-sand beaches and beautiful islands, Oceania should be your destination.

It’s not too far from the Philippines, and many countries there offer a free visa . The only obstacle is finding flights. But don’t worry, many flights heading to Oceania connect in Southeast Asia (Singapore, Malaysia, Thailand, or Indonesia).

  • Cook Islands* – 31 days
  • Fiji – 120 days
  • Kiribati – 90 days
  • Micronesia – 30 days
  • Niue* – 30 days
  • Palau – visa on arrival for 30 days
  • Papua New Guinea – 60 days evisa
  • Samoa – 60 days
  • Tuvalu – visa on arrival for 30 days
  • Vanuatu – 30 days

South America

When I travelled to South America, I couldn’t help but plan so many places to see, and it’s because of many reasons.

One, it’s hard and expensive to get there. Just like the Caribbean, flights to South America connect to the US or Canada. At that time, I didn’t have a US visa yet, so booking a flight was not easy.

Luckily, I was travelling from Europe, and I found a flight leaving Germany heading to Brazil. I booked that. Since I’m already in that part of the world, I have to make the trip count by visiting multiple countries.

And second, there are plenty of visa-free destinations in South America for us Filipinos . Although I only managed to get to three: Brazil, Colombia, and Peru (more reasons to return!).

  • Bolivia – 90 days
  • Brazil – 90 days
  • Colombia – 90 days
  • Ecuador – online visa or evisa
  • Peru – 90 days
  • Suriname – 90 days

Horror stories about the immigration of the Philippines, challenging visas, and expensive flights are some of the reasons why some Filipinos might be scared to travel around the world.

While these are extremely valid reasons, there are more reasons why you should go.

Travelling is not only for rich people and passport holders from the West. You can get to your bucket list destinations, with great will and planning. It might take longer (like me), cost more, and bring heartache (from offloading and denied visa application); you owe it to yourself to make that travel dream a reality.

My top visa tip is to spend your money travelling to neighbouring countries first instead of applying for challenging visas (where you might be wasting your time, money, and motivation).

Don’t let your rank #79 passport stop you from exploring the world.

I hope that this list of visa-free countries for Filipinos has been helpful and inspiring.

Hi Fhel, I will be cruising with my family on march in asia tru holland am with this ff. itinerary Taipei,Taiwan, Japan and Shanghai Do i need visas in any of this destinations specially in shanghai where the cruise will end and we will fly home the day after we disembark the cruise ship?

Hi, Good morning.

I have some queries to ask. Currently I am residing here in Qatar working in F&B department. Next week, I will be going to Sri Lanka as a short visit and do sightseeing with my Sri Lankan friends.

Do we have a Visa there? Or is it Visa on Arrival? If it’s Visa on Arrival what are the requirements that needs to be prepared? Hope you will answer my queries as soon as possible.

Thank you! ?

Hello. I had fun reading all those comments here. And I’ve never been seen someone who asks questions same as what I concerned, please help me to understand more the terms that they’ve used “free visa” does it means, that once I have a passport (Philippines Passport) can I already book my flights to those countries who have listed here? Directly? Or do I need to go in embassy first? Is there any processes (show money, requirements, payments) needed before I can go to that particular country? Hope you to help me. Thanks

Please update your list. Zambia is not visa free for Philippine Passport Holders as of October 2015. We also cannot get visa upon entry.

Hi, I’m a Filipina with a boyfriend I met through a dating site. We’re almost 3 years now. He want me to go to the UK by applying a working visa and find a job when I get there. Is this possible?

That is not possible. You will only be given a working visa to the UK if you have a job offer from an employer there. If you are his only online gf, It is better for him to come visit you. to see if he is real or not. He doesn’t seem to be educated because he is unaware of the fact that you cannot apply for a work visa there. Pnly EU nationals can just go there and look for work. But after Brexit, that will also stop. Ask him to spend some money.. consult a lawyer..if he has less money to spend, he can consult a travel agent… if he has none, then better look for another online boyfriend… there are thousands in your website right?

You should be mindful of your words. Question is about British and Filipino citizens who want to live and work in the United Kingdom. Ano paki mo doon sa Pakistan?

Careful about your words… Specially if you are referring to the whole nation. The Pakistan and Philippines have good diplomatic relations. Do you know a number of legal and illegal Filipinos who are working/living in Pakistan as well but we never tagged or generalized them as illegal.. I am pretty sure no such case has been registered.

According to my personal experience staying almost a decade here in the Philippines, If i start writing about your nation it will be quite painful. But i never did, i always defend Philippines and Filipino people.

Hi! I am a Filipina and I have a working Visa here in Japan. I am currently working here. I am not yet a permanent resident in Japan. This coming holidays, I would like to travel to other countries for a short vacation. Is it possible for me? I really wanted to visit and learn cultures of other countries. I tried to apply for a US Visa recently but they denied my application for some reasons. Then I decided to just go to the countries which do not require VISA. Is it possible for me to go to Hongkong, Singapore, Malaysia, Maldives without a VISA and with my status? What are other requirements if the country of destination is VISA-free for Philippine Passport Holder?Please advice me. Thank you very much.

Happy about that 🙂

My Japan visa approved 2days only at UHI agency makati. I’ve been in Japan very nice country I love to visit again my 90days vacation is not for me but anyway thank-you JAPAN.

As you have stated, it is somewhere between NO and almost impossible…Just based on your question there is no sincerity to add something positive to the Philippines, which what Immigration looks for in a work visa…The Philippines, already has enough people who take away only and not give anything back and working in a tattoo salon, is not reputable and there is not a huge need for so called tattoo artists….However, my logic means nothing, you will need to apply for all of this directly though immigration…You can do so in person, in the main office in Manila…They will give you a 29 day free visa, and then charge you for another extension, of usually 60 day, then a maximum of every 6 months, for around 7K each, and you can do this for about 3 years, however, personally, I prefer you get a job in India

thank you. its helpfull

what if i marry a phillipino ?? will it help me to take citizenship in phillipines??

That makes me sick. You see what I mean…You are willing to marry a girl, just for citizenship which is illegal..You have to do this on your own and stop bother Fehl Google the Philippines Immigration web page and follow direction, this is not what this article is about…Sorry Miss Fehl, but this guy does not belong here, this is not what your blog is about here

PASSPORT is a legal federal ID which allows you to leave your country

VISA: Is a document granting you permission to enter the country who granted the Visa

A US visa, is only good to enter the USA, for a specific amount of time and nothing more

Your Philippines passport only allows you leave the country of the Philippines, and is a federal ID

Now,check Miss Fehl’s list of countries which allow you to enter, without a visa….A visa, for the country you wish to enter, not the USA 🙁 HELP

For Filipino passport holders with valid US visa, what countries are we allowed to enter without applying for a visa?

Where did you get the visa?

Hi can I ask here how about indian citizens what she need if she want to go Philippines next month she wants to visit me in Philippines…. for 7 days only I hope you can help me thanks

Well, for me, entering the Philippines, I was give:

#1. Free 29 day visa…Up date it early, don’t be late, or they will fine you beyond recognition, and or deport you, after holding you, or him, or her at the BIWF

#2. Second visa, can be 30 days, 60 days, or maximum of 6 months…Usually, it is based on the reason why you need it longer…For me, it was 60 days

#3. More than likely, if you have even a reasonable reason, it will be six month and more than likely, be charged and ARC-1 card if you show you will be there longer…It is not a card to work, or go to school, it is a federal ID and in most cases, can be used, for just about anything, and you can secure your passport at hotel

#4. The longest you can stay is around 3 years, less one day…All you have to do is leave the country, for any amount of time, return and it all starts over

Costs range, from 5K to 8K depending on how long the visa is and if it has the ACR-1 card

I wish Filipinos have the same privilege, it is unfair

It is very unfair how I have seen. I invited a Filipina to the US for safety school, but the consul rejected the application in under 2 minutes? Has anyone been able to obtain a visa? If so, please help?

I agree, because I prefer more Filipinos, such as yourself, in the USA than other races but the problem is, very few Filipinos go back home, once the visa is over and that is not a figure of speech, it is very few…There is this misconception that you can get rich here and if that was true, men from the USA would not be retiring in Costa Rica and the Philippines…I not miss and love the Philippines, because my wife, kids, and house, with my new life, is there, but I chose to go there because it is less to live in a fixed income…The Filipinos who come here and allowed to come here are educated, in real estate, and law abiding….Those who come here, not as lucky fall into crime, prostitution, bar dancing, and or work many jobs, because, sure you earn let’s say for fun, 120K a month it costs you 125K to live here…Until people in the Philippines and most of Asia, stop believing it is easy to make it here, and become more educated, smart people like you will be judged wrongly, because of the other 98%…There is also a lot of unfairness for foreigners in the Philippines, because they allow drug lords back in who were once black listed but if you want to get married and whatever, you are prevented from going…It is not as easy as you think…To get in and stay in is all about money and corruption, the USA has a lot less corruption so it is harder

I just want to confirm if we are visa free in vatican city because i tried to check it online its stated that no visa requirement for philippine passport holder in vatican city.. Could you pls. enlightened me about this inquiry because on the list vatican city is not included and as far as my knowledge is concern vatican city is a separate state. Thank yous so much and God bless hope to hear from u soon.

When you checked on Wikipedia it is noted as visa not required but the link says otherwise

If you hqve schengen visa, then you can visit vatican w

Hi, I have visited the Vatican. Vatican has no airport therefore no port of entry and no immigration officer to stamp your passport and give you free entry visa. There are no hotels inside the city therefore you have to leave the state the same day and have to sleep in Italy. If you want to sleep in Philippine territory because you have no visa to go to Italy or an EU country try the RP embassy. You will need a valid passport to enter. If you do not have a passport try the various passwords. If you use the correct password that day, they will let you in. You can not book a room online. They are not listed at hotels.com or airbnb.com. You can enter the Vatican from Italy, specifically from Rome city. No need for passport or visa from there. You only need to show a valid entry ticket that you can buy online for 28.50 euros. When you leave the state of Vatican, you return to Italy. Again that is specifically in Rome. No need for valid visa or passport. Just exit the gate. Vatican is also a landlocked state. It is not accessible by boat therefore you will not find any seaport in the whole state. It is accessible by train, bike, taxi or rental car from Germany, France, Switzerland, Austria and a few other EU countries. The nearest airport the Fiumicino International. If you are not coming from another EU country you will need schengen visa before you board a plane to bring you there.

hi im mary grace soriano 25 years old im looking for a stable job hopefully in singapore i have 6months experience as a cashier in a supermarket and not at least 6months experience as a service staff

@ Mary Grace….Please do not get mad, but what you did here, was very dangerous…You need to find friends, who work for an employment agency, who it licensed and approved by your department of state, and even then, this does not mean you are safe…If you work over seas, stay out of the middle east, and Singapore is a good choose, but they are real Asians, which means, work work work, more than in the Filipinas…I will tell you more, privately but this was not a good move, on your part, it is called direct hire and is dangerous…You need to be signed up for the approved agency first..God bless and be careful, and do not do this, here, or any social media

yes…confirmed that no need visa to travel HK…But how about Korea..still need apply for visa?

All Filipinos still need visa to visit South Korea

Yes it would be nice for Filipinos to be able to travel to many more countries without visas. Unfortunately many Filipinos have a very bad reputation in other countries for visa overstay, illegal working, and prostitution. Feel sorry for the many upstanding citizens who are all tarnished by and looked down upon because of this behaviour.

This is not good or bad, but it is factual, for now

SORRY FOR THE MISS UNDERSTANDING IT IS NOT VISA FREE, JUST FREE FEE AND LESS HASSLES, BUT STILL NOTE BELOW:

There seems to be a movement to drop the visa requirements, but due to the large amount of people staying in the USA, and not returning, to their home country, a visa is required, as a means of seeking the people here, if they over stay…The same as I did, every 60 days in the Philippines

I checked with my wife and she qualifies, but the steps need to be taken, to obtain it and yes, there is a modest fee…It’s not that big of a deal…but it is all over the news that visas to enter the US for Filipino, is not required: That is not true, and I am ashamed of that, but the process is just more streamlined once you are interviewed…Just follow the game and get your visa

Here is a press release from your embassy, meaning Philippines, who I believe more, than social media

PRESS RELEASE WDC-024-2014 22 APRIL 2014

The Embassy of the Republic of the Philippines would like to inform the public that there is no truth to what appears to be an online news report that the United States has announced a ‘no visa’ policy for Filipinos. The Embassy has been in touch with the US Department of State, which has denied making such an announcement. The Embassy reminds the public that the online article being circulated in social media is a satirical piece that should not be taken seriously.

One needs to understand, a great deal of work and cost goes into processing a visa, for someone, so there is a share of cost, meaning the taxpayers pay for the overhead, you pay for the extra costs inured to the State, for travel here

My does qualify, because of the financial prof and she has kids and family in the Philippines, as human security for her return there…I know that sounds bad, but people who go the Philippines, have income, people who come here, usually do not, and seek employment illegally, so income and family stability is important, so please understand

My sad apologies for my mistake and my government

Yes, there is no visa-free for Filipinos who want to visit USA. I just hope they would be more considerate with single people like me. It’s not like I won’t be coming back home LOL I just want to see New York, LA, Miami and more. 🙂

Yes, you are correct and I am wrong times two…It was a very bad joke (LIE frankly) started in the Philippines, on a many social websites and it went viral and I fell for it…I did deep research through our State Department, and there is talk, about visa changes, but here, in the USA, talk is cheap…One thing I can tell you is, there will never, ever be visa free, because no one goes home,,,They also seem to still charge a huge fee, for the visa, regardless of time stayed, and even though the questions are less rude and SEEM to be less unfair, the chances of getting a visa, even to visit, and spend money here, you will be refused and the fees are kept…I would love to pick you up at the airport, and tour you around…I am close to Disneyland and other places of interest, so this sticks for me also..I am super sorry normal people like you cannot come here, for a visit

How about taiwan???..they didn’t mention it so it means we need visa in Taiwan??am I right???

Hi… I’m just confused cause some sites say that I Filipinos need to apply for a visa to have an opportunity to tour in Thailand and then I read about this information of yours.. Can u pls tell me about what really is the truth about “going to Thailand requirements”? Thank you.

You forgot to include Myanmar on your list.

I have mailed the website for Azerbaijan visa and they confirmed that filipinos are required for visa application before arriving to their country. I advise everyone to do further research and email or call the embassy or consulate of the country you are interested for visiting in.

Philippines Grants Visa-Free Privilege to 7 More Countries

These countries are Belize, Croatia, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Tajikistan, Turkmenistan and Uzbekistan.

how much it cost for applying visa on India

“Fair Privilege” A person’s point of view from 3rd world country There are obviously high number of 3rd world people making issues in 1st world countries. There is a strict visa policy to be fair with those people LIKE YOU who only travels and stays in the country legally. Thats what you call FAIR because at least we do not ban all of you. Hope someday Filipinos can travel as many visa-free countries as we can. It is hard to travel with filipino gf. Have a good day

INDIA does not (or no longer) issues ‘tourist visa on arrival’ for Filipinos. They still call it that though. Its very misleading. You need to pay and apply online which will take 72 hrs to process.

Good to know. Thanks for the heads up. 🙂

As of October 2022, Philippine passport holders can travel visa-free to 67 destinations. This includes 33 countries without a visa, while the other 34 countries can be visited with either visas on arrival or electronic travel authorities.

Of the destinations accessible to Filipino travelers, 21 countries are located in neighboring countries of Asia.

Filipino passport holders can also visit 19 destinations in Africa, 10 in Oceania, 7 in the Americas, 6 in the Carribean, and 4 in the Middle East.

According to the Global Mobility Report 2022 Q3 of the Henley Passport Index , the authoritative ranking of all the world’s passports,  the Philippines has the 80th most powerful passport in the world, sharing the ranking with Cape Verde Islands and Uganda.

The country’s latest ranking in the list made by London-based research firm Henley & Partners rose from 82nd place for the same period last year, but declined from 77th spot early this year. The Henley Passport Index compares the visa-free access of 199 different passports to 227 travel destinations. 

The report further shows that Japan is still the world’s most powerful passport with visa-free access to 193 destinations.

Singapore and South Korea are tied in second place, giving passport holders visa-free access to 192 destinations. Landing third are Germany and Spain with 190 visa-free destinations.

Countries That Issue Visa on Arrival to Filipinos

visa-free countries for filipino - Visa On Arrival Countries

What countries can Filipinos travel to without visas? Pinoy travelers who want to hike Mt. Everest can get visa on arrival in Nepal

Some countries issue a visa to visitors arriving at the airport. This type of visa is called visa on arrival (VOA), and it requires no pre-application unless stated in the requirements. You’ll receive your visa directly from the immigration at the airport of the destination country.

Unlike countries that require a visa, visa-on-arrival countries don’t require visitors to undergo a pre-application process in their origin country. They just ask for documents such as a valid passport, return ticket, proof of accommodation, and passport-size photo. Visitors may also have to pay a visa fee.

Despite this, visa-on-arrival countries are still among the easiest destinations to visit, just like visa-free countries. Here’s the list of countries that issue visa on arrival to Filipino travelers, along with the maximum allowed length of stay:

📍 Visa on Arrival Countries in Asia

  • Kyrgyzstan – 30 days 
  • Maldives – 30 days
  • Nepal – 90 days

Countries That Issue E-Visas to Filipinos

If you’re really set on traveling to a country that requires a visa, check out if they accept e-visas, which can be applied for and processed online. An e-visa doesn’t require any stamp or sticker to be placed on your passport before travel. Your visa can be accessed by immigration online via your passport number.

Applying for a visa online is faster and more convenient than the typical process, which requires a lot of time and movement. You can finish your e-visa application within minutes and get approved within a matter of days. Here are some countries that accept e-visas:

📍 E-Visa Countries in Asia

  • Sri Lanka – 30 days (electronic travel authorization)

Countries with Conditional Visa Exemption

Some countries allow conditional visa exemption for Philippine passport holders, provided they hold valid visas or valid permanent resident cards to other countries.

Others allow visa-free access to Filipinos visiting only a specific area in the country or as a part of a tour group based in that specific country. Countries that implement conditional visa exemption policies issue visas on arrival to Filipinos.

Here are countries you may visit upon meeting their visa-free entry conditions:

Final Thoughts

Raring to go traveling again after being cooped up for so long? Just remember, the pandemic isn't over yet! If you can, get travel insurance, especially if you're traveling abroad. 

Also, keep in mind that while this guide is accurate as of writing, the list of visa-free countries for Filipinos changes every so often. Some countries may discontinue accepting Filipino tourists without a visa while others that used to require a visa may allow visa-free entry in the future.

Just to be sure, visit the Henley Passport Index website to confirm if the country you want to visit still allows visa-free entry for Filipinos. Also, make sure to contact the embassy or consulate of your destination country so you can get a more specific list of requirements for your travel.

If you get all these things right, you’re all set for your trip. Enjoy!

69 Visa-Free Countries for Philippine Passport Holders in 2024

 alt=

Are you a Filipino passport holder itching to explore new countries? The 2024 Henley Passport Index brings some interesting news for you!

This yearly index isn’t just a list; it’s a gateway to understanding how far your passport can take you across the globe. Let’s explore what this means for Filipinos in 2024.

Understanding the Henley Passport Index

The Henley Passport Index is like a global passport leaderboard. It ranks countries based on how many destinations their citizens can visit without needing a visa. This index isn’t just about bragging rights; it’s a reflection of a country’s diplomatic relations and the strength of its passport.

 Where Does the Philippine Passport Stand?

In 2024, the Philippine passport ranks 73rd, sharing its spot with Cape Verde and Uganda. With this ranking, Filipinos can now enter 69 countries without a visa!

Plus, there’s the bonus of getting access to more countries through visa-on-arrival or electronic travel authorizations (eTAs).

A Quick Comparison with Asian Neighbors

It’s always interesting to see how we fare compared to our neighbors. In Asia, countries like Singapore and Japan are at the top, tied for the first spot with access to a whopping 194 countries! South Korea isn’t far behind, sitting comfortably in second place with access to 193 destinations.

While trailing behind these leaders, the Philippines still offers a decent range of travel opportunities.

Their contacts or host in Malaysia will also have to secure for them a letter of authorization or approval for VWR from the Malaysian Department of Immigration. The original letter of approval will be included in the visa application.

Or is it ok that I dont have statement of bank account? Our date plan to go to SG is on Jan.18 to 22. Please do a response as soon as you read my comment. Thanks?

To be extremely careful, If you have an employer, get a letter from them saying you are on vacation within those days. Also if travel with your bf, together that will be better too. I have also heard the immigration in Manila will ask many questions and can bar people from leaving Manila, if you don’t have prior international travel experience and you are traveling alone.

As a Philippine passport holder we are given a 21 days visa to enter Cambodia right? My question is instead of the normal 21 days stamp on the Philippine passport is it possible to request upon arrival for the Cambodian “ordinary” visas (E class) which allows a foreigner to stay 1, 3 or even 6 months. Thank you

Nope, not possible. You need to get that visa in advance at the Embassy.

HI Kach. I’m looking at staying in Thailand for at least 6 months. Would you know the recommended process for this to happen? Thanks in advance.

Does anyone know if there is a limit on how many times the Asean visa privelege can be used in a year? That is, if I were to be near the border of Thailand and Malaysia, for example, could I just go back and forth until my passport is full, or is there a limit? Thanks!

Hi! Thanks for your informative blogs, esp. this one! I aim to teach English for 3-5 yrs in either Asia or Latin America, ( Singapore, Taiwan or Thailand) /(Colombia/Peru, etc.). I highly prefer the first one, but I’m confused how to pursue for I’d need to bring my mom, as soon as possible with me (my only dependent). Any idea at which country/countries are they allowing a constant exit to a nearby country and re-entry (within our allowed visa-free period)? So I could have my mom join me in a tourist visa while I couldn’t petition her yet? Your idea/advice would be highly appreciated-thanks!

No, recently, Vietnam don’t even require an arrival card. Just your Philippine Passport. 🙂

Hi Miss Kash plan to go to Singapore for 4days & 3nights, visa-free po diba?. Tanong ko lng po ano po need po ba ng show money, proof of accomodation and proof of ticket roundtrip?. Ano po ba need pagdating dun. Thanks po.

I’m always visiting Singapore every year and even spent 18 days as a backpacker so I learn Singapore the way Singaporean do. It was easy. Visa upon arrival that a huge factor, but you must show your return ticket or an onward ticket/boarding pass & you must indicate where you want to stay in Singapore. Meaning writes the exact/complete address of the hotel or the apartment wherever you want to stay on the immigration card; however, needless to show your hotel confirmation. They will take your words for it. This will be checked after scanning your passport. “Show money” is not required unless you present yourself at the counter like a homeless person. SG immigration is very efficient, if nothing pops up on their criminal records, you will pass the counter in less than 40 seconds. The in and out of Singapore is the easiest airport I’ve ever been.

Hi! I’m eyeing on teaching English for 3-5yrs in SG. My main concern is I’d need to bring my mom with me (my only dependent), as soon as possible. I’ve read online about their strict requirements on a high salary esp. for a singler person like me . Honestly it seemed close to impossible, at this time. Since we’re allowed 30days currently..will it be possible for my mom to exit to nearby countries and re-enter SG each time? Or is it true that SG is already strict too on this “technique”? Or at least, how many times may we re-enter under Tourist visa? (my concern is my momy, she’s a Senior Citizen and is no longer working). Will highly appreciate your insights-thanks!

U need return ticket n hotel.booking.no show.money.but u.must hv extra money…singapore is expensive all n everything..be ready ur pocket for that.

Hi I find your blog ery informaive. I have a queation. I am planning to travel in asia with my son and a companion for at least 2 months for a vacation. What countriea would you recommend if from phils to another country to another country or countries then return back to phils from the last country that we visited instead of returning back to the first country we visited? Or does it require that we need to return back phils before we can depart and visit another country? Will appreciate your response. Than you in advance!

I recommend you to go to Hong Kong for 2 days then Macau by Ferry for 2 days then fly to Hanoi Vietnam or Vientiane Laos. From Vientiane, you can go to Bankok Thailand by bus or plane. Then go to Malaysia by train or plane. Then Malaysia to the Philippines. All countries are visa-free.

Explore Taiwan: 14-day visa-free entry for Filipinos extended until July 2025

MANILA, Philippines – For those planning a visit to the “Heart of Asia” soon, you won’t have to fret about requirements as Taiwan continues to welcome Filipinos visa-free until July 2025.

On June 4, Taiwan announced another one-year extension of its visa-free entry program only for nationals of the Philippines, Thailand, and Brunei from August 1, 2024 to July 31, 2025.

Just as before , Philippine passport holders may enter visa-free for up to 14 days, so long as they can present proof of accommodations, contact details of host or sponsor, and sufficient travel funds.

This is the second time that Taiwan has extended the visa-free period since it first reopened its borders to Filipinos in September 2022.

Taiwan is geographically the closest to the Philippines, and that has reflected in the strong tourism ties between the two as well. Taiwan’s latest pre-pandemic travel statistics shows that the Philippines was its second biggest source of arrivals in Southeast Asia, with 454,575 Philippine visitors entering from January to November 2019.

Taiwan is still far from restoring its tourism industry to its pre-pandemic levels, drawing only 309,376 Philippine visitors in the same period in 2023. More broadly, it only welcomed 5.67 million visitor arrivals from January to November 2023, compared to the more than 10.72 million that visited in the same period in 2019.

But that could improve as Taiwan worked on further easing inbound travel requirements. Besides the visa-free extension for select Southeast Asian nationals, Taiwan’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs (MOFA) also said that it was extending its “project for simplifying visa regulations for high-end group tourists from Southeast Asian countries” for another year until December 31, 2025.

Taiwan is also keeping in place its conditional visa-free entry for Southeast Asian nationals that apply online for a Travel Authorization Certificate.

“MOFA will continue to review and fine-tune visa policies, with a view to strengthening bilateral exchanges and attracting more visitors while ensuring border and public security,” the ministry said in a statement on June 4. – Rappler.com

Overview of Taiwan’s Visa-Free Entry Extension

Taiwan extended its visa-free entry program for Filipino travelers, allowing them to visit for up to 14 days without a visa from August 1, 2024, to July 31, 2025. This move aims to enhance tourism and bilateral relationships.

Details of the Extension Period

Taiwan’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs announced the extension of its visa-free policy. This will apply to citizens from the Philippines, Brunei, and Thailand. The program lets travelers stay in Taiwan for up to 14 days without obtaining a visa.

Effective August 1, 2024, this extension runs through to July 31, 2025. This one-year extension ensures that travelers from these countries can plan their trips more conveniently and encourages more frequent visits. The policy is part of Taiwan’s efforts to boost tourism and strengthen ties with neighboring countries.

Implications for Filipino Travelers

This extension is beneficial for Filipinos planning to visit Taiwan. It means they can travel without the hassle of applying for a visa, saving time and money. The 14-day window is ideal for short vacations, business trips, or family visits. Additionally, this move is likely to increase tourism and cultural exchange between Taiwan and the Philippines.

Filipino travelers can enjoy Taiwan’s vibrant cities, rich history, and scenic landscapes more easily. The policy also reflects Taiwan’s commitment to maintaining strong relations with the Philippines. More frequent travel opportunities can lead to better mutual understanding and stronger economic ties between the two regions.

Visa Policies and Public Security

Taiwan’s visa exemption program for Filipino travelers brings both opportunities and responsibilities. This section explores the framework of the visa exemption program and the safety measures in place for visitors.

Visa Exemption Program Framework

Taiwan’s visa-free entry for Philippine passport holders is part of a broader effort to strengthen ties and promote tourism. The policy, which has been extended until July 31, 2025, allows Filipinos to visit Taiwan without a visa for stays of up to 14 days. This program aims to encourage travel and cultural exchange between the two nations.

Visitors need a valid passport with at least six months of validity, and their travel itinerary must include a return or onward flight. The program simplifies travel, making it easier for Filipinos to explore Taiwan’s rich heritage and bustling cities. While the program primarily benefits tourists, business travelers attending short-term meetings or conferences also gain from the relaxed entry requirements.

Safety Measures and Requirements for Visitors

Public security is a priority for Taiwan in maintaining a safe environment for all travelers. The government ensures stringent safety measures, including comprehensive health checks at entry points to prevent the spread of diseases. Surveillance systems in public places enhance security, and the authorities maintain a visible presence to deter crime.

Visitors should be aware of local laws and regulations and carry appropriate identification at all times. Emergency contact numbers and information are widely available to assist travelers in need. Taiwan also enforces strict penalties for overstay and other violations, ensuring compliance with its entry rules.

The combination of visa policies and public security measures ensures that Filipino visitors can enjoy a safe and hassle-free travel experience in Taiwan.

Guidelines for Visa-Free Entry

Taiwan allows Filipino travelers to enter without a visa until July 31, 2025. This section breaks down the eligibility criteria, required documentation, and travel authorization needed for a smooth entry.

Eligibility and Entry Requirements

Filipinos can enjoy a visa-free stay in Taiwan for up to 14 days starting from August 1, 2024. The visa exemption applies only to those with regular passports. Diplomatic or service passport holders are not eligible.

Travelers must hold a valid passport with at least six months remaining validity from the date of entry. Additionally, they must present a confirmed return or onward airline ticket. The purpose of the visit should be for tourism, business, visiting relatives, attending events, or engaging in international exchanges.

Those with a criminal record or previous violations of Taiwan’s immigration laws may be denied entry.

Documentation and Travel Authorization

Required Documents:

  • Valid Philippine passport with a minimum of six months validity.
  • Confirmed return or onward airline ticket.
  • Proof of accommodation (hotel reservations or invitation letter).

Medical insurance covering the duration of stay is recommended but not mandatory.

Travelers must fill out an online Arrival Card before boarding their flight to Taiwan. This can be done through Taiwan’s Bureau of Consular Affairs website.

Upon arrival, travelers should present the required documentation and the completed Arrival Card at the immigration checkpoint. Immigration officers may ask for additional details about the visitor’s stay, so carrying a copy of airline tickets, hotel reservations, and travel itinerary is advisable.

Benefits to Travel and Tourism

The extension of visa-free entry for Filipinos in Taiwan has several implications, particularly for boosting the tourism industry and simplifying visa regulations for tourists.

Boosting Tourism Industry

The visa-free policy significantly attracts more visitors from Southeast Asian countries like the Philippines. Easier entry encourages tourists to choose Taiwan as a travel destination, thereby increasing tourism revenue. Filipino tourists can now explore Taiwan’s diverse attractions without the hassle of visa applications, promoting longer and more frequent visits. This influx benefits local businesses, including hotels, restaurants, and shops, boosting the local economy.

Taiwan’s unique blend of traditional culture and modern attractions appeals to a wide range of travelers. Famous sites such as Taipei 101, Sun Moon Lake, and night markets offer rich experiences. The continuation of visa-free travel helps ensure these attractions receive more international visitors, sustaining tourism growth.

Project for Simplifying Visa Regulations

Taiwan’s project for simplifying visa regulations aims to streamline the travel process for high-end group tourists. This initiative targets affluent travelers from Southeast Asian countries, including the Philippines, encouraging them to choose Taiwan for luxury travel experiences.

Simplified visa procedures can also enhance Taiwan’s reputation as a convenient and welcoming destination. This ease of access supports Taiwan’s efforts to become a more accessible and competitive player in the global tourism market. By reducing bureaucratic hurdles, Taiwan can attract more high-spending tourists who can contribute significantly to the economy through extended stays and premium services.

Practical Information for Filipino Travelers

Taiwan has extended its visa-free entry policy for Filipino travelers until July 31, 2025. This section provides important details on the duration of stay, visa treatment, and contact information for travelers.

Duration of Stay and Visa Treatment

Filipino citizens can enjoy a visa-free entry to Taiwan for up to 14 days . This period allows ample time for tourism, business visits, or short family trips. It’s important to note that this visa-free policy applies to holders of an ordinary passport. Service passport holders also benefit from this policy.

To be eligible, travelers must have a passport valid for at least six months beyond the date of entry. They should also have a return ticket or an onward ticket to another destination. It’s recommended to carry proof of accommodation for the duration of the stay, though it is not mandatory.

Advisory and Contact Information

Travelers should stay updated on any travel advisories issued by Taiwan’s Bureau of Consular Affairs (BOCA). This can include health alerts, travel restrictions, or other important notifications.

It’s also beneficial to contact Taiwan’s local embassy or consulate for any needed clarifications. In case of emergencies or travel issues, the Philippine Representative Office in Taipei can be reached for assistance. They can provide support on various matters, from lost passports to legal issues.

Visas and entry requirements in europe and the schengen area.

""

This page is for Australians travelling to Europe.

Read this page to learn about:

  • the Schengen Area
  • entry and exit to the Schengen Area
  • other European countries with visa waivers
  • non-Schengen European countries

The Australian Government doesn't issue visas for other countries. We can't provide final information on border rules. Ask your destination's high commission, embassy or consulate for details before you travel.

The Schengen Area

The Schengen Area is made up of 27 European countries with common border rules. It lets travellers move freely between member countries without

  • going through border controls
  • getting a visa for each country.

The members of the Schengen Area are:

  • Czech Republic
  • Liechtenstein
  • The Netherlands
  • Switzerland

Bulgaria  and  Romania  partially joined the Schengen area on 31 March.  Border checks should have ceased for air or sea travel  between Bulgaria, Romania, and other Schengen Area countries. Checks are still undertaken for land-based travel. Stays in Bulgaria and Romania now count towards your total visa-free stay in the Schengen Area (see below).

Entry and exit in the Schengen Area

Australians can travel visa-free in the Schengen Area for up to 90 days in a 180-day period. Your travel must be for:

  • business purposes
  • visiting friends and family
  • tourism and holidays
  • cultural and sports events
  • official visit
  • medical reasons
  • short-term study

Apply at the embassy, high commission or consulate of the country where you'll stay the longest. If you're staying for the same length of time in each country, apply at the embassy of the country you'll visit first.

You'll need to apply for a visa if:

  • you're planning to stay for more than 90 days
  • your reason for travel changes, and you no longer qualify for visa-free travel.

You'll need to apply outside the country you want a visa for.

Calculating your 90/180 days

Calculating your visa-free days can be complicated. The European Commission provides a calculator to help you track your visa-free days .

  • The 180 days isn't fixed in time. It's calculated backwards from today.
  • Your 90 days are calculated from your first day in the Schengen Area within the 180 days.
  • If you leave and return within 180 days, your last stay will count towards the 90-day maximum.
  • If you use up your visa-free days, you must leave until you accumulate more or apply for a visa.
  • You may be fined or banned from the Schengen Area if you overstay your 90 days.
Example You arrive in Spain on 18 March. You fly to the UK on 21 April and stay there until the 29th. On 30 April, you travel to Greece and stay until 23 June. Your trip was 97 days, but only 90 were in the Schengen Area. You can't re-enter the Area until at least 14 September, when the Spanish leg of your trip falls outside your 180 days. If you re-enter on 14 September, you can only stay another 35 days as your time in Greece still counts towards your current 90 days. If you re-enter on 22 September, you can stay another 90 days, as you haven't been in the Area in the past 180 days .

Entering and exiting the Schengen Area

You must show a valid passport when entering the Schengen Area.

Your passport must be valid for at least 3 months after the date you intend to leave.

Make sure you get a clear entry stamp in your passport when you enter the Schengen Area for the first time. Without a stamp, you could be fined or detained.

Some countries need you to register within 3 days of arrival.

See our destination-specific travel advice for entry and exit details for each country. Check the European Commission for information on temporary border controls .

These visa rules only apply when travelling on your Australian passport . If you're a dual national travelling on your other passport, check the rules for that nationality.

The European Travel Information and Authorisation System (ETIAS) is an electronic security system. It will do a security check before you can enter participating European countries . ETIAS is expected to start in mid-2025 if the new system is working.

You won't need an ETIAS for EU countries who aren't taking part in the program.

Other European countries with visa waivers

There are other European countries where you can travel visa-free. Travel to these countries does not count towards your 90 days for Schengen Area travel.

Countries can change their border rules at short notice. Before you travel, ask your destination's nearest embassy or consulate for the latest rules.

Visa waiver agreements with Australia

Australia has visa waiver agreements with several countries in the Schengen Area. These agreements may allow you to spend 60 to 90 days in the country for tourism.

Visa waiver agreement countries include:

Using visa waiver agreements with Schengen visa-free arrangements is complex. Each country operates the visa waiver in its own way.

Most countries need you to use the visa waiver at the end of your Schengen Area travel.

Visa-free tourism programs in non-Schengen countries

Some European countries outside the Schengen Area allow you to enter visa-free for tourism. Most let you stay up to 90 days. Some are for longer. See our country advisories for details on border rules.

  • Bosnia & Herzegovina
  • North Macedonia (Republic of North Macedonia)
  • United Kingdom

Non-Schengen European countries

Many European countries are not part of the Schengen Area. Non-Schengen countries have their own border rules. These countries include:

Ask these countries' high commission, embassy or consulate for visa information.
