Philippines Threatens to Add New Visa Requirements for US citizens

The government of the Philippines announced on Friday it will remove the visa-on-arrival privilege for American citizens. The threat comes after the U.S. government approved a provision banning the entry to the United States of several Filipino officials.

U.S. citizens can currently enter the Philippines for purposes of tourism without a visa. A valid U.S. passport and a return ticket to the United States or an onward ticket to another country is all that is required. Upon your arrival, immigration authorities will stamp an entry visa valid for 30 days on your passport.

The Philippines are a popular travel destination. In 2015 it was ranked as the 14th most popular destination for Americans with close to a million visiting the country.

The State Department has a Level 2 Travel Advisory for the Philippines. Exercise increased caution in the Philippines due to crime, terrorism, civil unrest, a measles outbreak, and kidnapping. Some areas have increased risk. Read the entire Travel Advisory.
