Entry Requirements

Entry Requirements – Visas
British nationals may enter the Philippines without a visa for an initial period of 21 days, while a tourist visa from the nearest Philippine Embassy will allow an initial 59 day stay.

Entry Requirements – Passport validity
Entry to the Philippines may be refused if your passport has less than six months validity or if you do not have an onward or return air ticket.

Overstaying without the proper authority is a serious matter and can lead to detention pending payment of outstanding fees and fines and voluntary deportation at your own expense.

Local Laws and Customs

You are required to show some identity if requested by the police. You are allowed to carry photocopies of the relevant pages of passports. You should store the originals in a safe place to avoid loss or theft.

Philippine law on paedophile activity is severe, and strictly enforced. Severe penalties can be passed in child abuse or rape cases. A child is defined in Philippine law as a person under the age of 18.

Entrapment may also occur where strangers with children have befriended single male tourists; allegations of abuse are then made in an attempt to extort money.

The Philippines has a long-standing tradition of sending its nationals overseas to work – Any foreign national planning to get involved in recruiting Filipinos for employment overseas must make sure that they have done their due diligence and consulted local lawyers to ensure that they are fully compliant with local legislation and suitably licensed.

The laws relating to illegal recruitment are stringent and carry non-bailable charges. Foreign nationals have been known to spend more than 2 years in city jails on remand whilst their cases are processed.
