List of countries that provide visas upon arrival to Filipinos

Urrgh!  It really frustrates me when I can’t even go to a country that I’d like to visit because of the Visa issue.  I planned to go to Santorini, Greece this coming October and I need a Schengen Visa to enter.  Because of my nationality, I have to go back to Philippines to apply for it and it will take at least 10 to 14 days to receive my passport back and to find out if my application was approved or not.  The period of waiting is not a big deal “IF” I have enough time to stay in Philippines or “IF” I am in the Philippines.  What about if I am not?  Currently, I am in a place that I can’t go to an embassy.  I can’t even apply in Dubai; I need to be a resident there.  How difficult can it get right?

This led me search online for some countries that don’t require visa or even it requires it can be provided upon arrival.  As always, Wikipedia is my source of information.  I hope my readers will benefit from this information especially the Filipinos.

  • I’ve stumbled on a post like this before. ang mahirap lang kase, ang mahal pa din ang air fares sa ibang countries, not to mention yung transit visa na kukunin mu. Gusto ko nga makapunta ng Peru at barzil pero naman, ang pamasahe is like half year ng salary ko. haha
    sad to say, madame pa rin tlaga limitations kapag Filipino passport holder ka. 🙁
    BTW, kelangan ng visa sa S.Korea. I heard maghigpit daw sila sa mga Pinoy not unless you;re a diplomat or a govt. official. Samantalang ang dameng Koreans sa Pinas. Sana in the future free visa na din sila. I’d love to visit S.Korea too!

    thnx for sharing this Mr.Loo! 🙂

  • Hi! I am currently in Thessaloniki, Greece. I’m also a Filipino… unfortunately, it’s not that easy to go to Greece if you’re a Filipino, unless if you’re married to a Greek citizen. I have to go through 2 countries before coming here. Even if we were married there in Pinas, it would still be a long term to wait if the visa is approved or not. So I feel for you, patience is a virtue, really…

    And Santorini is quite unique. Don’t miss out that romantic island which was an ancient center of technology in the past :D. So I hope that whatever it takes, you come here!

    Kali Tichi (Good luck) and
    Kalo Taxidhi! (Have a good travel but literally translated as “Good Travel” ) 😀

    I love your blog and I’m happy to find it!

  • Oh I forgot to mention that Santorini is pronounced as “San-do-ri-ni”. They have a thing here that all original greek words with “nt” in between, is pronounced as “…n-d…”. But they also use it as American letter “D”, (not dhelta cos dhelta is a specific letter for them) when used for writing foreign words.
    Ahahaha, pardon me if I have said too much. Kali Tichi!

  • RichQ, are you living overseas? If yes, you have to be a resident of that country to apply for a Schengen visa, if not you have to go back home to apply. I know it sucks, but that is procedure.

  • […] After at least an hour stay in Singapore it took another two and a half hours to reach our final destination, Bali!  The airport was kind of busy that night and we had to go to the Visa section.  My friend is an American national and needs a visa to pass through immigration.  Fortunately, I am from the Philippines so I don’t have to buy a visa to get in to Indonesia.  A 30 days visa cost US $25.00.  This is one of the rarest moments that a Filipino like me can get in to a country without a visa, and it really felt good. (Click here to see the list of countries that is not required a visa for Filipinos) […]
