Easy Access Countries for Filipinos

Not too long ago, I posted about how cool backpacking is– https://iamryshel.com/2014/09/26/i-am-a-backpacker-i-am-a-filipina/.

I wanted to know all the countries where a Philippine passport holder like me can access without applying for a visa so I decided to collate and post the information here which I got from wikipedia.com.

Let’s start with the members of The Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) with the corresponding days of allowable visa free stay. Most of us know that these are our neighboring countries where we can travel the easiest and the cheapest.

Brunei – 14 days
Cambodia – 21 days
Indonesia – 30 days
Laos – 30 days
Malaysia – 30 days
Myanmar (Burma) – 14 days
Singapore – 30 days
Thailand – 30 days
Vietnam – 21 days

May I remind you that if you arrive in Thailand by land, they will only give you 15 days free visa. Here, you can find how I crossed the border from Laos to Thailand– https://iamryshel.com/2014/10/02/i-crossed-the-border-from-houay-xay-laos-to-chiang-khong-thailand/.

Israel is known for its holy sites which probably most Filipinos would want to visit. Below are the Arab countries who WILL NOT allow your entry if you have a stamp of Israel on your passport because of the Arab League Boycott of Israel.

Saudi Arabia

Although, we probably wouldn’t want to go to any of these Arab countries anyway, it’s still good to know.

Now, you may want to check how I hassle free renewed my passport https://iamryshel.com/2014/10/16/e-passport-renewal-sm-megamall/ or you go get a new one so you can plan your trip abroad.

Have a happy and safe adventure! 🙂

I am a woman consumed by wanderlust. I am outgoing but I also love to spend time alone, live for “being yourself”. I love new situations and to meet new people.
