Philippines Entry Requirements

City in rural province on coast.

U.S. citizens need a Philippines visa for all travel purposes including tourism. Travelers must secure a visa from a Philippine embassy or consulate prior to travel. Immigration authorities will stamp your passport with an "admit until" date. You must not overstay or else be subject to fines and detention by the Philippine Bureau of Immigration.

Travelers to the Philippines will be subject to COVID testing and mandatory quarantine for at least 14 days.

Persons who overstay their visas are subject to fines and detention by Philippine immigration authorities. American citizens are urged to remain aware of their visa status while in the Philippines and to strictly follow immigration laws and regulations. Travelers departing the country from international airports must pay a Passenger Service Charge in Philippine Pesos. Visit the Embassy of the Philippines web site for the most current visa information.

Special requirements exist for the entry of unaccompanied minors. In an effort to prevent international child abduction, the Philippine Government requires that a waiver of exclusion be obtained from a Philippine Embassy or Consulate or from the Bureau of Immigration and Detention in Manila for a child under 15 years of age who plans to enter the Philippines unaccompanied by either a parent or legal guardian prior to the child's entry into the Philippines.
