An archipelagic country and scattered to more than 7 thousand islands, the Philippines is home to rich biodiversity, warm hospitality of people and incessant economic growth. It is no wonder why the Philippines is becoming the next icon of sustainable tourism and the pearl of vibrant investment capital. All foreign nationals coming in for short-term visit or staying for good are presented with different Philippine visa options to cover their stay.
It is important to note that for each application, the foreign national must be physically present in the country. When transacting with the concerned government agency, the foreign national’s passport with travel stamp is being presented. Due to high influx of applications especially for work visa/permit, an applicant may face some challenges when securing the approval and/or completion. It is best that an applicant is armed with feasible options and contingency plans during the pendency of an application.
