All You Need To Know About Philippines Visa Policy

January 5, 2022

Philippine Visas are endorsements made on travel documents by consular officers at Philippine embassies and consulates around the world to signify their approval of the applicant’s visa application and their right to enter the Philippines and apply for entry permits to Philippine immigration officials at the ports of entry. The issuance of such a visa does not guarantee that the holder will be automatically permitted into the country, as the admission of foreign citizens into the Philippines is the responsibility of immigration authorities at the port of entry.

Passengers visiting the Philippines must register for the Philippines One Health Pass (OHP) and fill out an electronic Health Declaration Card (eHDC). The One Health Pass is a web-based program for visitors to the Philippines. It was launched to make traveling to the Philippines safer during COVID-19.

Before flying to the Philippines, incoming travelers must register their information and flight details. Using the One Health Pass, passengers can submit their electronic Health Declaration Card, which is a requirement under federal law. They must submit contact information, health information, and other details concerning their journey.

Requirements For A Temporary Visitor’s Visa

A temporary visitor’s visa must be applied for in person. In the event of a minor under the age of eighteen (18), the application may be submitted on his behalf by a person who is responsible for his/her welfare. The minor, who is not an infant in arms, must attend in person at the Consulate for an interview, along with the person completing the application on his or her behalf.

As a general rule, those applying for a temporary visitor’s visa should do so at the Philippine Embassy or Consulate of their location of residence. Certain applicants can apply at any Philippine Embassy or Consulate abroad when it comes to visa applications. In contrast, others must apply at the Philippine Embassy or Consulate in their home country.

The minimum requirements for obtaining a temporary visitor’s visa are as follows:

· Validity of passport/travel document for at least six (6) months beyond the time of anticipated stay in the Philippines;

· Completed Visa applications; 

· 2 Passport-size photos; 

· Proof of genuine tourist or businessperson status;

· Returned or onward tickets to the next port of call;

· Paid Visa fees.

Requirements For Philippines eTa

Only citizens of Taiwan can apply for an online visa waiver for the Philippines at this point. Visa requirements for electronic authorizations to enter the Philippines include the following:

· A Taiwanese passport is required.

· An up-to-date email address is required to receive eTA application notifications.

· A debit or credit card to pay the visa charge.

It is required that all fields in the online form be filled out completely and accurately in English unless otherwise noted.

The applicant’s passport information must match the data provided on the online application.

To comply with government regulations, an approved travel authorization must be printed on a fresh A4 sheet. Individuals, not groups, are eligible for the Philippine electronic visa waiver; thus each applicant’s authorization must be printed out on its own piece of paper.

The issued travel authorization will include information on the validity of the eTA and the duration of time that the eTA holder may stay in the nation.
