Visa & Migration

General Description:

Nationals of countries which have diplomatic relations with the Philippines including Nepal are generally allowed entry into the country without visas for a stay of twenty-one (21) days or less, provided, the nature of the trip is for tourism only and are holders of a roundtrip or onward travel airline ticket along with the 6 months valid passport. The nationals who intend to stay more than 21days are required to have visa from local embassies and consulate.

What is the Philippine Visa?

A Philippine Visa is an endorsement made on a travel document by a consular officer at a Philippine Embassy or Consulate abroad denoting that the visa application has been properly examined and that the bearer is permitted to proceed to the Philippines and request permission from the Philippine Immigration authorities at the ports of entries to enter the country. The visa thus issued is not a guarantee that the holder will be automatically admitted into the country, because the admission of foreign nationals into the Philippines is a function of the immigration authorities at the port of entry.
