Philippines Visa

Tourists from most countries are not required to purchase a visa if visiting for 3 weeks or less. For longer stays, a 60 day visa is available. You can upgrade to tourist visa status for about $60 USD at any time, in which case the time you’ve already spent in the country is deducted from the 60 day allotment.

Check the official Philippines visa official faq for the most up-to-date info. 

Getting the visa in the Philippines can be a hassle (especially in Manila) so it’s best to purchase one from your home country if you know you’ll need it.

However, the Philippines tourist visa is conveniently available in a number of Philippine provincial cities. Many tourists mistakenly assume that they need to return to Manila to purchase a visa. This is certainly not the case, and it is usually much more convenient to get a visa in a provincial city. Don’t hire an expensive visa “fixer” – simply locate the immigration office, fill out the necessary paperwork, and pay the fee.
