Travel Tips


Arrival Requirements 

You may enter the Philippines without a visa provided your stay does not exceed 21 days and your passport is valid for at least six months after the date of entry. You must also possess an onward or return ticket. Upon entry, the immigration authorities will stamp your passport with an entry visa valid for 21 days.


If you plan to stay longer than 21 days you can apply for an extension of another 38 days at any Philippine Immigration office. This will extend your total stay to 59 days. There is an Immigration Office at San Fernando not too far from Bali Hai. For further information see: http://www.immigration.gov.ph
