    Hello Mary.. You have an idea of how much ii need to spend money if I travel to France then Barcelona? A big thanks in advance!

    • Mary Charie 26/05/2017 at 10:14 am

      HI Ann! When I went to France and Italy for 12 days, I spent US$500 flights included. But that was because I flew from Denmark (where I used to live). It does come down to where are you flying from, how long will you be staying etc.

  • ALEX M BORDONADA 23/05/2017 at 9:50 pm

    Going to Europe to visit the following countries thru Trains.
    Start to London, Switzerland, Italy, Greece and Spain.
    What visa will i need?

    • Mary Charie 24/05/2017 at 2:14 am

      Hi Alex, thanks for reading! First, you need to apply for UK visa and Schengen visa prior to your arrival to the UK and travel in the Schengen states.

  • Lee 20/05/2017 at 2:52 pm

    Hi Mary! really? Morocco is a visa free country? if yes i can go there without visa stress thinking haha .. thank you!

  • SUZETTE PANGATUNGAN 17/05/2017 at 6:45 am

    I’m planning to travel in Costa Rica is it true that i don’t need to get visa? What are my papers needs to bring and I’m here in Taiwan is it possible to travel from here or is it is easy to travel from Philippines. Please let me know which is better and what are things need to get so that I can travel there?

    • Mary Charie 17/05/2017 at 9:27 am

      HI Suzette,

      It’s true that PH passport doesn’t need a visa to enter and travel Costa Rica. I don’t see the difference between flying from Taiwan and Philippines. Although I suggest you to prepare return flight ticket and accommodation bookings upon flying out of the country.

      • anne 18/05/2017 at 2:21 am

        hi Mary i would like to ask you about applying visa going to England can you pls enlighten me. thanks.. anne

  • Loleth Jimeno 17/05/2017 at 4:52 am

    Hi Mary, have a great day! i hope you can help me with this. I just want to know what are the requirements needed in getting a schengen visa for France. My fiancee wants me to meet his family and relatives in France however we have a problem in applying a visa since i don’t have a work for a moment but all the expenses will be shouldered by my fiancee. This is my first travel if possible.

    I tried also to travel in jeju island last time since i have a korean friend whom sponsored my trip. He handled all my expenses as a birthday gift but unluckily the immigration officer stops me and ask me those requirements needed in getting a Korean visa. i explained to them that this is a free visa country but still they didn’t allow me to go and force me to pass all the requirements. I showed them my tickets back and forth and even the hotel reservation in jeju island. My route is:
    Cebu-Hong Kong
    Hong Kong – Jeju island
    Jeju island-Hong Kong
    Hong kong – Manila
    Manila – Cebu

    I’m quiet disappointed of the officers behavior. Three of us didn’t pass in the immigration that time so i have a little bit phobia in processing this thing. Thank you in advance. God bless.

    • Mary Charie 17/05/2017 at 5:07 am

      Hello Loleth,

      Thanks for your comment. I’m sorry that it has happened to you, I understand that it must be traumatising. Unfortunately, I lot of Immigration Officers (IO) are not aware which countries we are free of visa. If you decide to travel to Jeju again, make sure to print screen authentic resources for this information.

      About visa to France, you need to apply for a Schengen Visa. IF your fiance is an EU national, he should be able to host you even you have no job.

  • Naty vale 15/05/2017 at 5:01 am

    How are you ?
    I just wanna ask if I need visa as tourist in USA, Caribbean or to Mexico, and Europe Paris? My boyfriend he want me to meet in USA then we are going g to visit other country.

    Thank you Mary charie.

    • Mary Charie 15/05/2017 at 6:08 am

      Hello Naty,

      Thanks for your comment. Yes, you need to apply for all the countries you mentioned before arriving 🙂

    Thanks a lot Mary hope u can answer my question thanks again marry

    • Mary Charie 15/05/2017 at 3:56 am

      Hello Bheng, thanks for your comment! That’s true that you don’t need a visa to enter and travel India for 30 days. If you plan to stay longer than that, you need to apply for an e-visa 🙂

      • Loco 16/05/2017 at 5:54 am

        E-visa is needed even for short stay

      • Bheng Pineda 16/05/2017 at 7:34 am

          Bheng, the cost is $62, you can find more information here: https://indianvisaonline.gov.in/evisa/tvoa.html you can also apply through this agency: https://e-visums.co.uk/india?p=112&pi=link

          • Mary Charie 17/05/2017 at 5:02 am

            Hi Bheng! Im glad I’m able to help. If you go through the agency I recommend, they process the visa in just 24 hours. However, I would suggest you to apply as soon as you can to avoid any hassle. Here’s the link: https://e-visums.co.uk/india?p=112&pi=link

  • Kaye 13/05/2017 at 1:58 am


    I read on the comments that PH passport holders will be eligible for free visa access in Taiwan starting June 1, 2017. Does that mean that I don’t need to get a visa even if I’m not holding a PR Cert or Valid visa from the mentioned countries? I’m staying in SG and called the Taiwan embassy here, they said there is no announcement that Filipinos will be free visa access 🙁

    Oh, btw, I’m travelling this coming August 2017.

    Thank you so much 🙂

    • Mary Charie 13/05/2017 at 3:34 am

      Hi Kaye!

      That’s true that PH passport is supposed to have free visa access in Taiwan starting June 1 this year. However, Taiwan ministry supposed to announce more details about it in April. Perhaps, you should contact Taiwan ministry in the Philippines about the said changes.

      Unfortunately, it’s not much of a help, but hopefully, the in-charge person will be able to give you mroe answer.

      • Kaye 13/05/2017 at 4:05 am

        Hi again 🙂

        I have emailed to MOFA – Taiwan, at the same time to Taiwan Ministry here in Singapore to confirm these changes. I’ll keep you posted!

        Anyway, much thanks for the insights 🙂

        • Kaye 21/05/2017 at 2:23 pm

          Hi ate!

          Just an update po, MOFA – Taiwan already replied, and sad to say, that the policy of Visa-Exempt Scheme for PH passport holders will be finalized in September this year. So all travels prior to that still need to get either an eVisa online or visitor visa from the Taiwan embassy.

          Thanks po 🙂

  • Jojo. Hashimoto 06/05/2017 at 11:12 pm

    I’m living. in japan with a long term resident visa , i want to visit to Peru south america. do i need visa. to apply? I”m a Filipino i mean.

    • Mary Charie 09/05/2017 at 11:48 am

      Hello Jojo! Philippines passport holders not need tp apply for a visa to enter and travel Peru 🙂

  • Jackie 05/05/2017 at 7:50 pm

    Hi, I’m an OFW in Taiwan before and I want to go back just for a visit (tour). Do i still need a visa?

    • Mary Charie 09/05/2017 at 11:46 am

      Hello Jackie,

      Thanks for reading! Starting June 1, 2017, to June 1, 2018, PH passport holders are eligible for free visa access in Tawain 🙂 When are you planning to go?

  • Cherie Visaya 04/05/2017 at 2:07 pm

    Hi there…
    Just wondering how u obtained your schengen tourist visa.. what are the requirements u submitted and processes to go through? I was granted a fiancee visa for UK but didn’t push through with the wedding because of our kids who are always fighting.now i’m back in the Philippines and want to meet up with my boyfriend somewhere in europe (w/o the kids 😄)..so i thought Schengen visa would be the best option…your reply would be much appreciated..TIA

    • Mary Charie 05/05/2017 at 4:17 am

      Hello Cherie,

      Thanks for reading! Both of my Schengen visa was granted by Danish Embassy, which I found quite easy to obtain. However, I think this is mostly because I had hosts in both visa. I have no experience with other embassies.

      In case this is something you might be interested to take a look at, here’s the link: https://amaryroad.com/schengen-visa-application-danish-embassy/

    • Mary Charie 22/04/2017 at 6:45 am

      Hello Zohirul,

      Thank you for reading! To be honest, I have no experience myself about applying for Filipino Citizenship. But according to Official Immigration website of the Philippines, you can apply for a permanent residence permit: http://www.immigration.gov.ph/faqs/visa-inquiry/permanent-resident-visa

      Hope this helps! 🙂

    Brazilian still need re entry to enter philippines ??

    • Mary Charie 19/04/2017 at 3:06 am

      Hi Michelle,

      Brazilians do not need to apply for a visa to enter the Philippines. If you want to extend, you have to go to the Immigration office and find out the requirements for this.

  • Michelle 18/04/2017 at 12:00 pm

    Hi tanong ko lang po kung need pa po ng re entry ng brazilian para po makapasok dito sa philippines or they need to take a visa too ??

  • Shn 17/04/2017 at 5:34 pm

    Hi! May nabasa po kasi akong article about visa free sa Korea. Since direct flight from Manila to Jeju is quite expensive..I am planning to layover to Incheon and taking domestic flight from Gimpo to Jeju..Do I still need tourist visa if my final destination will be Jeju?(which is visa free)

    • Shn 17/04/2017 at 5:35 pm

      But I do not wish to have a tour in the mainland though

      • Mary Charie 18/04/2017 at 7:34 am

        Hello Shn,

        Transit through the mainland South Korea will not require you to secure a visa nor a transit visa. As long as your final destination is Jeju Island 🙂

        • Shn 18/04/2017 at 1:56 pm

          Seriously?? Hindi po ba ko haharangin sa immigration since lalabas ako ng Incheon airport?

          • Mary Charie 19/04/2017 at 3:02 am

            If you need to exit Incheon airport and not only to “transit” then you need to secure a visa for that.

  • Kris 16/04/2017 at 9:36 am

    Hi question lang po if arriving at jeju island then fly to other main cities of south korea pwede lang po ba? or i really have to get a visa? Planning to land sa jeju then fly to incheon then exit there as well. Thank you!

    • Mary Charie 17/04/2017 at 5:47 am

      Hi Kris,

      Thansk for dropping by! If you land in Jeju Island, you don’t need a visa. However, if you want to go to the maniland S.Korea, you need to secure a visa.

        • Mary Charie 21/04/2017 at 3:27 am

          Hi! I’m sorry to hear that, but that can’t be right. Even on this link https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Visa_policy_of_Malaysia#30_days says Ph passport is visa-free to enter Malaysia. I suggest to your sister/brother to print screen the part that it says visa free for 30 days to Filipino and show it as s/he leaves the country.

    • Mary Charie 09/04/2017 at 5:56 am

      Hello Resty, if you hold a PH passport, yes, you do need a visa to enter Japan.

  • Iris Cerna 31/03/2017 at 9:43 am

    Hi, I’m planning to go to Taiwan. I’ve read that I can still enter visa-free since I have Japan and US visas that are expired for not more than 10 yrs. It’s what most of the sources say. I currently do not have a valid one. But I read in your blog that it must be an unexpired visa. :/ Is this based on your experience?

    • Mary Charie 31/03/2017 at 11:42 am

      Hello Iris,

      Thank you for dropping by! BOCA (the official consular affairs of Taiwan) actually updated their website recently, I only found out since the links stopped working and I had to update it too. Anyway, no I have no experience myself about this, my brother did it with a valid visa. The information I posted here is based on thorough research. I have checked with BOCA’s website and that’s right, they mentioned that you can use your expired visa as long as it’s not more than 10 years since the expiration. I would suggest you go rely on BOCA, they’re the most accurate source you could have.

      I really appreciate you mentioning this, thus I can update this list too. Thank you so much 🙂

  • Katherine sabino 29/03/2017 at 3:25 pm

    • Mary Charie 30/03/2017 at 8:33 am

      Hi Katherine, thanks for reading! I’ve never done it myself but I heard as long as you fly into Jeju you can bypass the visa. However, going to “main land” South Korea, you need you obtain a visa. Hope this helps! x

      • Edzel Punzalan 22/03/2017 at 2:07 pm

    Hello Ms. Mary Charie,
    i would like to ask…because im a PH e-passport holder and will be my first time to travel….my destination will be in Vietnam…is it really do need a required visa ??

    • Mary Charie 16/03/2017 at 4:20 am

      Hello Clarise, no we don’t need a visa to enter Vietnam. Unless you will be staying for more than 21 days, then you need to get a visa 🙂

  • Jecko 14/03/2017 at 6:23 am

    Hi Ms. Mary Charie,

    Good day! Can we clarify on Shenzhen’s 7-Day Visa-free entry if coming from Hong Kong? I tried checking thru the PH Chinese embassy website, medyo hindi ko po siya mahanap or hindi lang ako maintindihin sa batas. Thank you for your reply! 😀

    • Mary Charie 14/03/2017 at 1:11 pm

      Hello Jecko, thanks for dropping by! I haven’t been to China myself neither tried this. But based on my research, you can only do this IF you are on an organised tour. I do HIGHLY recommend you to double check this.

  • ana 13/03/2017 at 9:31 am

    Hi mary! How about canada ? How true is it now this may 1,2017 the approval of 90 days visa free country for filipino tourist..pls any info..thanks much!

  • Shamz 12/03/2017 at 5:19 am

    Hello Mary, i just to know what requirement to i need if i want to go to south korea as a tourist am here in Dubai. thanks waiting for your response. God bless.

  • Jervie 10/03/2017 at 4:45 am

    Hi, good noon. i just want to confirm with regards for your blog, i was looking for Europe without visa need. Is it Kosovo – 90 Days id free visa? Thanks 🙂

    • Mary Charie 14/03/2017 at 1:23 pm

      Hello Jervie, yes that’s true. However, the wikipedia page for Kosovo has been suffering for some outdated information. Aside from this, in any case Filipino don’t need visa to enter Kosovo, there is a slim chance that you can get a direct flight to Kosovo, which will require you to get a transit visa for Schengen or other countries you will have to transit. (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Visa_policy_of_Kosovo)

  • Julienne Baloran 09/03/2017 at 7:32 am

    Northern Marianas is VOA?

    • Mary Charie 09/03/2017 at 11:18 am

      Hello Julienne,

      I just double checked this, looks like I did a mistake. There was only one reference that showed me PH is VOA in Northern Marianas. I couldn’t find any other websites or blogs that confirm this one. Looks like PH is not VOA with Northern Marianas. I will edit this right now. Sorry about it and thanks for asking.

  • Angel Vivo 07/03/2017 at 8:48 am

    • Mary Charie 09/03/2017 at 2:33 am

      Hello Angel,

      Looks like you only need a return ticket and of course your valid passport. Have a great trip!

      • Angel Vivo 09/03/2017 at 2:56 am

        Thank you so much.Godbless.

  • Kony 06/03/2017 at 4:19 pm

    How about Guam? Is it fall under the list of Mariana Islands? I really want to go to Guam for a holiday this year.

    • Carla 08/03/2017 at 6:14 am


      Guam is under US territory. Should you want to visit, you need to apply for a US tourist visa.

      • Mary Charie 09/03/2017 at 2:30 am

        Hello Kony,

        I second what Carla just said.

  • Rovelyn Kryg 04/03/2017 at 11:18 pm

Nag google ako about visa free at it includes Turks and Caicos. Kailangan ko ba po talaga ng Visa para maka punta ako sa Turks? Please message back po i badly needed your advice.

    • Mary Charie 05/03/2017 at 7:55 am

      Hi Rovelyn, I replied on your message 🙂

  • Anne Ng 04/03/2017 at 1:06 am

    Hi Mary,
    Me and foreign boyfriend wants to go in Australia. He is a Canadian resident and me a Pinay. What are the required for our vacation in Australia? Thanks in advance.

    • Mary Charie 04/03/2017 at 2:00 am

      HI Anne! Thanks for dropping by! Your boyfriend wouldn’t need a visa to enter Australia. However, for you holding a Philippines’ passport, you need to apply for one.

  • Hazel Abundancia 25/02/2017 at 5:35 am

    Hi Mary!

    Do you have any idea how much fund do i need in order to have a Schengen visa? Assuming i will be arriving in Paris. Thanks!

  • Dianne 25/02/2017 at 3:14 am

    Hiw about in estonia im from Philippines??

    • Mary Charie 25/02/2017 at 6:14 am

      Hi Dianne, Estonia is part of Schengen States, which means you need to apply for a Schengen Visa.

  • Rempheps Ferrer 11/02/2017 at 5:50 pm

    Hi Mary, I am planning to visit Bangkok any moment of this month. So, I might ask you some questions which really bothered me much, first. I have a PH Passport, but the first thing that really hesitates me to travel in bangkok is for the first time traveler like me to go out our country. Is it really possible that the immigration in our airports will get me pass in thru immigration? Secondly, what are those papers or documents that they are looking for when you get inside the immigration in our respective airports? And lastly, is it really that too easy for the first timer to get inside The bangkok. Without offloading? Thanks I hope you will acknowledging this messaged. 🙂

    • Mary Charie 12/02/2017 at 1:48 am

      Hi Rempheps, I sent you an email 🙂

  • aimee 10/02/2017 at 6:16 pm

    • Mary Charie 11/02/2017 at 3:20 am

      Hello Aimee, you need to apply for a Schengen Visa in the Spanish Embassy 🙂

  • Sonny Galam 09/02/2017 at 10:52 pm

    Hi mary.how about multipul destination from maniLa to singapore-maLaysia-thaiLand-taiwan-.??

    • BlueMountain 10/02/2017 at 12:20 am

      Hi Sonny,

      For Philippine passport holder, No visa requirement in SIngapore, Malaysia, and Thailand as part of ASEAN member countries.

      For Taiwan, you do need a visa. If you are permanent resident of some countries such as US, Japan, etc. you can apply for travel certificate/authorization online instead of visa. For more information, this website has all the details.


      • Mary Charie 10/02/2017 at 1:50 am

        HI, Blue Mountain, thank you for you help! Highly appreciate it 🙂

    • Mary Charie 10/02/2017 at 1:49 am

      Hi Sonny, it’s right about what BlueMountain said, you don’t need a visa to the first three countries you mentioned. But you need to get a travel certificate instead for Taiwan if you are a permanent resident of some countries 🙂

  • melchi 01/02/2017 at 2:16 am

    hi Mary, how about Australlia? do you have any idea? how to get a tourist visa.


    • melchi 01/02/2017 at 2:17 am

      i have a filipino passport.

    • Mary Charie 01/02/2017 at 4:40 am

      Hello Melchi,

      Thank you for your comment, unfortunately, I haven’t been to Australia myself. But I’ve looked into it, same as the other country’s requirements. You have to meet the requirements before proceeding to apply for one. For more information, you can find it here: http://philippines.embassy.gov.au/mnla/Visitor_Visas2.html

      Good luck!


  • ahra mae zand 14/01/2017 at 10:08 pm

    i want to confirm about new delhi and mumbai is a visa free or visa upon arrival issue for filipinos? im just a bit confuse about it…
    hope you can help me …
    thank you and more powee

    • Mary Charie 15/01/2017 at 2:27 am

      Hello Ahra,

      Thank you for your comment. I haven’t been to India myself, therefore, I cannot confirm this to you. If I find anything online I’ll definitely keep in contact. Thank you!

    • Ping 25/01/2017 at 11:29 pm

      U should apply E visa online ..before entering India . Been to India few times .. With my philippines passport .

    • Divina Grace 28/01/2017 at 4:12 pm

      India is not visa free for Filipinos, you can apply though for an evisa online. It takes three days to receive your evisa and you should take with you a printed copy of said visa.
      I just visited North India and it was amazing! I wish you a nice trip!

  • darling 04/01/2017 at 9:04 pm

    can i ask everyone if you travel to argentina,southamerica they were need visa..,thn

    • Mary Charie 05/01/2017 at 3:18 pm

      Hi Darling, thanks for dropping by! Do you have a Philippines passport? If yes, then yes you need to apply for a visa in advance.

  • Joe 07/12/2016 at 4:46 pm

    Awesome blog. I was lucky enough to have a permanent residence in EU and a 10 year US visa that allowed me to travel even with just a PH passport. I just can’t seem to find any information regarding if there is any visa excemption to Japan and South Korea, for a PH passport holder with the EU permanent residence or US visa.

    • BlueMountain 08/12/2016 at 3:36 am

      Hi Joe, no visa exemption in South Korea and Japan even if you have permanent residence in EU or USA. For South Korea, they allow day tour (less than 24 hrs) if you have multiple entry visa from USA, Canada, EU, Japan, etc.

      • Mary Charie 08/12/2016 at 7:00 am

        Thanks for answering to Joe’s question, Blue Mountain. I wonder if Joe will enter through Jeju Island, like what I found during my research, can he freely travel in (the mainland) Korea?

        • Carla 08/03/2017 at 6:25 am

          Hi Mary,

          I don’t think this is possible. I’ve read in other blogs that when you fly from Jeju and arrive in Seoul, you would still need to pass through immigration to enter.

          • Mary Charie 09/03/2017 at 2:28 am

            Hi Carla,

            I’m not sure about that as I haven’t done it myself. But it makes perfect sense if a traveller still needs to get a visa. Thanks for the input, really appreciate it 🙂

  • BlueMountain 01/12/2016 at 2:30 am

    Myanmar is just 14 days. Their eVisa website even has a message that staying more than 14 days require eVisa.

    • Mary Charie 01/12/2016 at 8:17 am

      Hi! Thanks for dropping by! Whilst I was writing this article, I had a bit of argument in my head since I found a resource that says it’s now 21 days. But Wiki says 14 days. Now, I couldn’t find the resources anymore. So I’ve changed it from 21 t o14 days. Thank you!!! 🙂
