Visa-Free Countries for Filipinos

Visa-free Countries for Filipinos | Travel Finds


Not sure where to book next?

You might want to go first where visas are not needed or, at least, a lot easier to get! That’s one step less to your trip planning!

Truth be told, I had so much fun doing this article! The work entails that I look at hundreds of travel photos and choose the most inviting ones for every country. How’s that for a job? It lulled me to faraway places, deep in the recesses of my imagination. For a few minutes a day, I’m off to the best of the world through people’s travel photos!

But first things first. Let’s get down to the technicalities.

The differences among visa-free, visa on arrival, and e-visa

VISA-FREE– you may enter the country without applying or paying for a visa. Just bring a passport with 6 months validity, proof of self-support, and usually an onward ticket.

There has been a mutual agreement between the 2 countries that influx of tourist from each other’s countries will both benefit the economy.

VISA ON ARRIVAL– no need for prior visa application. Visa may be secured and paid at the immigration. Just bring a passport with 6 months validity, proof of self-support, and usually an onward ticket. Your entry is still on the immigration’s discretion.

E-VISA– visa application must be accomplished prior trip online and your visa will be waiting for you at the airport.
