VISA

APPLICATION AND REQUIREMENTS

A Philippine Visa is an endorsement made on a travel document by a consular officer at a Philippine Embassy or Consulate abroad denoting that the visa application has been properly examined and that the bearer is permitted to proceed to the Philippines and request permission from the Philippine Immigration authorities at the ports of entries to enter the country. The visa thus issued is not a guarantee that the holder will be automatically admitted into the country, because the admission of foreign nationals into the Philippines is under the purview and discretion of the immigration authorities at the port of entry.

The Philippine Consulate General in Guangzhou issues several types of Philippine visas. The requirements and fees vary, depending on the visa applied for, and on the nationality of the applicant. 菲律宾驻广州总领事馆签发多种签证。针对不同的签证类别及不同国籍的申请人士要求及费用相应地有所不同
