Filipinos can apply for a UK visa through a Visa Application Center in Manila or Cebu. A visa can allow you to enter the United Kingdom, which is composed of England, Northern Island, Scotland, and Wales. A Single Entry Visa can allow you to enter once for a maximum of 6 months. But a 10 year multiple Entry UK Visa will allow you to enter and exit the UK a lot of times within 10 years.
