Visa free countries for Filipinos: The Complete List

When Rachel and I started traveling, we realized that the most challenging part about the trips aside from having the budget, was the visa free countries for Filipinos. Sometimes, it can be quite challenging to process a visa for Filipinos. Read here about Rachel’s full blog post to get Schengen Visa Philippines and how long the whole process took, but luckily it was successful!

Most of the destinations that are  visa free countries for Filipinos are around Southeast Asia. All the Asean Countries are in fact part of the visa free countries for Filipinos. These countries are easiest because you can find cheap flight deals with Air Asia and Cebu Pacific aside from having a hassle-free application for visas. You can usually get from 2 to 4 weeks free visa to stay in the country.

So for those who are new to traveling, what is Visa? Visa is an entry permission to the country. It will clarify how long you can stay, when you are allowed to visit the country, which months your allowed to enter inside the country, and how many times you can enter inside the country per year. Also, it tells if you are allowed to work or only visit as a tourist in the country.

Types of Tourist Visas

Free Visa

Free Visa or visa-free countries allow you to enter a country without applying for a one. You will get a few days, weeks, or months of free stay in the country as a tourist.

Visa On Arrival

Visa on Arrival is granted upon entry at the airport of the country you’re visiting, and sometimes there are specific entrance points or airports. There’s no need to apply for this and you will get it at the moment you arrived. It’s like Free Visa but you will have to pay a fee. It’s usually around $40 USD per month but it’s not fixed per country.

Visa Required

You need to apply for a visa in the embassy before visiting the country. You will have to provide documents, dates, itinerary and you will have to pay a fee. It can be tricky and a long process sometimes. You have to make sure you read all the requirements before applying so you will not have to come back to the embassy two or more times.

E-visa

E-visa is a kind of visa you can apply for online. You will give your passport number, fill out online forms, and some require a fee. After that, you will be ready to enter the country.
