Effective 01st August’2013 foreign tourist to the Philippines can stay up to 30 days without a Philippines tourist visa, Philippines Visitor Visa, Philippines Business visa up from 21 days before a recent implementation by Philippines Foreign Affairs Department which got cheers from travel trade. this change is applicable for citizens of 151 countries with valid passports at least six (6) months beyond the allotted stay and an onward confirmed air ticket showing the return journey (new).

New Rule: 

Israel & Brazil nationals will remain to enjoy 59-day visa free stay in connection with the existing bilateral agreements by respective countries with Philippines, where as India, China & Taiwan are excluded from this new rule.

From the consulate desk:

The Assistant Secretary of the Office of consular Affairs, Jaime Victor Ledda said with this new rule in place “Longer Visa-free stays in Philippines will encourage good number of tourist’s and prospective investors to stay and enjoy the hospitality of Philippines without Philippines tourist visa, Philippines Visitor Visa, Philippines Business Visa and hassle to report to immigration’s offices will be removed”. The travel trade has given a warm welcome to this new rule in place. Adding to this he explained that the new rule would save tourists time and money, compared to seven-day waiting period for applying to consulate for extension of their stay.

“It will also give them more flexibility in planning and managing their schedules.” added Ledda.
“Longer Visa-free stay” is really a good news for students, tourists and business men who especially wishing to stay longer periods in the country, because visa extension is really costly (3,530 pesos (USD 81)) for a seven-day processing and more if it is same day processing”.
