Countries require visas from visitors for regulatory, security and economic reasons. It is important to confirm visa information with a current and reliable source, such as the local embassy of the country you’re travelling to. You may need a visa for any countries you visit or transit on your trip. Visa requirements vary depending on the nationality of your passport, the length of your stay, whether you will leave the airport, the nature of your trip, your point of entry, and the areas you will be visiting. These requirements can also change regularly.

For us Filipino, we may enjoy our privilege of visiting 61 countries and territories without visa.

Remember that, every country has their own restrictions and guidelines to follow upon entry. So, make sure you obtain all the necessary requirements ahead of time. Mostly, immigration officers require valid passport (at least 6 months validity), onward flight ticket, hotel booking and reservation, a slight interview on your purpose of visit , just be honest and confident, and of course a pleasant smile and warm greetings will be of help. In some instances, a sufficient fund is also required to demonstrate your cover of stay.

Important reminder: visa restrictions may change from time to time. So it is advisable that the traveler must check the embassy or immigration of the country he/she may wish to visit.
