Issuance of Visas
Jordanian and Palestinian passport holders must secure a temporary visitor's visa from the Philippine Embassy or Consulate in their country of origin or place of legal residence so that they could be allowed entry into the Philippines.
Applicants for multiple-entry visas must wait until explicit authorization is received from Manila for the issuance of their requested visas.

Most other nationalities can visit the Philippines without the need of a visa for stays of less than twenty-one (21) days. If the intended stay in the Philippines is to exceed twenty-one (21) days, you may either apply for a visa before traveling or seek an extension from the Bureau of Immigration upon arrival in the Philippines. To be certain, please check with the visa officer at the Consular Section.
