What Do You Need To Visit Philippines
« on: August 12, 2014, 01:30:12 PM »
I am not sure if this has been updated on your website, but after reading your introduction page, I thought I would pass this on.
I got this information in regard of hoping more Canadians will visiting the Philippines.
More people should experience the the filipino smile.

CONSULAR SERVICES
Issuance of Visa
Beginning 01 August 2013, the visa-free period for foreign nationals from 151 countries including Canada is extended from the previous 21 days to a month (30 days). A passport with a validity of at least 6 months, and a round-trip plane ticket or an outbound ticket to the next port of destination must be presented to the Immigration authorities upon arrival in the Philippines.

For a stay in the Philippines for more than 30 days, Canadians may apply for a 59-day tourist visa, valid for a single entry. Processing of the visa applications takes five (5) business days upon compliance with the following requirements.

The list of countries to which the ruling applies continues to expand.

Tourism generates a huge amount of revenue which gets distributed throughout the economy.

It is a source of income that actually reaches those at the bottom of the economic stratum; thus, keeping it out of the hands of the corrupt.
Never mistake knowledge for wisdom. One helps you make a living; the other helps you make a life.

All of the above, plus a pocket full of cash, or ATM card that will let you draw on banks here. With money-- it really is more fun in the Philippines.

Just one correction: Processing of the visa takes about 20 minutes when you do it in the immigration offices which are in most large towns.

Just a quick reminder, It's probably superfluous but,
don't forget to inform your bank/s that you will be travelling
overseas and using your cards. They might not allow/block you
withdrawing otherwise, and it may cause a headache trying to
inform your bank from here in the Phil.
