Visa Information

If you’re from Australia or New Zealand and travelling as a tourist to the Philippines – good news! You can get a visa on arrival and stay for up to 30 days. However, you must have a passport that’s valid for at least 6 months beyond the period of stay in the Philippines, and present a return or outward bound ticket to the next country of destination.

Chinese Nationals, including citizens for Hong Kong and Taiwan, will need a special permit. Indian nationals with a valid U.S., Japanese, Australian, Canadian, Schengen, Singapore, or United Kingdom visa will be granted a 14-day visa free entry which may be extended for an additional 7 days for a maximum stay of 21 days. *BI Memorandum Circular No. RADJR-12-008. This only applies to Indian Nationals arriving at the Ninoy Aquino International Airport (NAIA 1-3) who have the following: (1) National Passport valid at least 6 months, beyond the contemplated stay (2) Return or Onward ticket (3) No derogatory record in BI, NICA, or INTERPOL.
