Philippines Visa Information
A Philippines visa
endorsed by the consular office of the Philippine Embassy in the US
permits the holder to enter the country. However, the visa does not
guarantee entry since it is up to the immigration officers to deem
entry of a foreign national valid. Some foreign citizens, including
United States citizens, do not need a visa to travel to the
Philippiness and are permitted to stay up to 30 days.
U.S. travelers who want to stay in the Philippiness for over 30
days must obtain a Philippines visa by completing an F.A. Form No. 2-A.
