I know you’ve seen a lot of blogs/articles that listing the Visa Free Countries for Filipino but for my reference and to my readers I will still list of Visa Free Countries for Filipino.

Before I start listing them, you will notice some list of the countries below classified as “VISA not required” or “VISA issues upon Arrival (VOA)/Visa on Arrival” and “e-VISA“. I will explain the differences between the two why they include the list as VISA Free countries where they need a Visa upon arrival.

VISA not required” is the country where you can enter the country without requiring VISA for s specified period of time, where a “Visa issued upon arrival (VOA)/Visa On Arrival” are the countries wherein they can apply and receive your visa upon arrival when you show up. Just pay the processing fee by country to process your VISA upon arrival. How long would it take? It still depends on the system per country. Next is “e-VISA“, you VISA application is made through online. Visit the country’s website and apply for an e-VISA if required before entering their country.

So before you book for the flight, hotel reservation and tour, see below for the list of VISA free countries for Filipino so that you will not lose or waste your money.
