List of Visa Countries for Filipino Citizens To Travel

Do you love to travel the world, but hate the headache and stress you need to go through to get some travel visa? Worry no more. Filipino citizens or Philippine passport-holders can travel to some countries without the need of processing a visa. Currently, Filipinos are allowed to enter 56 countries and territories without a visa. German passport holders are ranked as the most powerful in the world for 2017 because they can enter 176 countries without applying for a visa.

Visa is a conditional authorization granted by a country to a foreigner, allowing them to enter, remain within, or to leave that country. Visas typically include limits on the duration of the foreigner’s stay, territory within the country they may enter, the dates they may enter, the number of permitted visits or an individual’s right to work in the country in question. Visas are associated with the request for permission to enter a country and thus are, in some countries, distinct from actual formal permission for an alien to enter and remain in the country. In each instance, a visa is subject to entry permission by an immigration official at the time of actual entry, and can be revoked at any time. A visa most commonly takes the form of a sticker endorsed in the applicant’s passport or other travel document.

Visa requirements often reflect countries’ relationship with each other, taking into account diplomatic relationships between countries, reciprocal visa arrangements, security risks, and the dangers of visa and immigration regulation violations. While the Filipinos are only entitled to enter some countries and territories visa-free, it is still a privilege and opportunity for globe trotters wanting their passports stamped.
