Do I need a Visa to travel to the Philippines?
The short answer is NO, YOU DO NOT NEED A VISA TO TRAVEL TO THE PHILIPPINES. We get asked this question A LOT since President Duterte’s statements back in October 2016 about his desire to require a visa for Americans traveling to the Philippines. Changing laws between nations take some time and there has not been any official action towards changing the visa laws. As of today, January 16th, 2017, visa laws have not been changed between the United States and the Philippines.
