70+ Exciting Visa-Free Countries for Filipinos

Did you know that there are 70+ visa-free countries for Filipinos? Yes, there are a number of countries that offer absolutely Visa-free entry to Philippine passport holders. This is good news since we love to travel, especially us, Bulakenyos.

Disclaimer: The list of visa-free countries for Filipinos (Philippine passport holders) changes every year.  Please double-check with the immigration website of your destination country before booking anything. You should also check if your flight requires a Transit Visa when disembarking or having a layover on another country may require such.

Note: These destinations are visa-free for tourists and limited duration entry only. Filipinos still need to get visas for these countries for other purposes that would require them to stay longer — e.g., work, study, etc.

Understand the Different Types of Visas

Visa-free means these countries allow PH passport holders to enter their borders without the need for Visa. These visa-free countries for Filipinos will allow you tostay there for a period of time, mostly for tourist purposes and short business trips.

Visa On Arrival (VOA) means the visa is acquired at the airport, seaport, or point of entry of the said country. Expect to pay a fee for this type of visa.

Electronic Visa (e-Visa) requires you to apply for an online visa through the embassy or immigration website of your destination country prior to your trip. Once approved, you need to print this out and attach it to your passport. You have to bring this and show it to the immigration officer at the airport or seaport upon entry.

Visa Required means that you need to acquire a visa (stamped onto your passport by the embassy) before the host country allows you to enter their borders.

A Transit Visa is a visa that is valid for a very short period. Depending on your nationality and destination country, you may need to have a transit visa to make a connection to a foreign airport or cross through a foreign country.
