Good news, however, there are 4 Countries and Territory Filipinos Can Enter with a Valid New Zealand Visa.

4 Countries and Territory Filipinos Can Enter with a Valid New Zealand Visa

You read it right! With a New Zealand Visa, you don’t need to pass documents and pay visa application fees to other places on this list.

Filipinos can enter Georgia with an eVisa costing USD 20 plus a bank service charge. However, with a New Zealand Visa, Filipinos can skip getting an e-visa and present your NZ to the immigration officers.

If you want a unique place to travel, Georgia should be on your list. It has a blend of Europe and Asia. This was once the Soviet Republic that is famous for its architecture, especially the old towns, churches, and monasteries. You will like the charm and gorgeous sites this country has to offer.

What to do in Georgia:

3. South Korea

Location: East Asia
Requirements: Valid New Zealand Visa (with label)
Days: 30 days or 3-day transit

A South Korea Tourist Visa Fee is free; however, you may need to pay tourist agencies to submit your application for you. I actually paid PHP 800, for mine last 2019. But recently, this 2020, Filipinos can visit South Korea Visa-Free. You can do so if you have a New Zealand visa.

How it will work:

• You can either travel to or from New Zealand (PH to SK to NZ) or (NZ to SK to PH) and have a ticket out of South Korea for within 30 days
• You could also add another stop for above, but it needs to be a maximum of 3-day transit from a third country (e.g. NZ to SG (for 3 days) to SK to PH)
• There must be a visa label or sticker on your passport. If not, a trip from NZ to SK to PH is accepted
• You can also transit to or from New Zealand via SK, the maximum is 72 hours and you’ll need to be in the Transit Tour Program
• Jeju Island is free for 30 days; however, you must have direct flights there, e.g., NZ to Jeju

South Korea was my 4th country, the 2nd one I did Solo. Since I am a big fan of the KPop (Super Junior for 10 years) and been watching KDramas; it was in my top list of countries to visit. With gorgeous traditional buildings, the hanbok, beautiful sites, and rich history, it was a dream come true. Plus I was treated amazingly by Koreans!

What to do in South Korea:

  • Wear traditional Hanbok as your walk around Gyeongbokgung Palace
  • Stroll around the famous Nami Island
  • Check out the view of Seoul at N Seoul Tower
  • Enjoy in Korea’s theme park – Everland
  • Chill out at Jeju Island

Location: Oceania
Requirements: Visa Free, Only Entry Permit is given
Days: 30 days

Many probably don’t know this island country, in fact, it’s actually my first time hearing about it. Filipinos are actually visa-exempt for 30 days. However, having an NZ visa is vital as you can only have direct flights from Auckland to here.

Niue is located northeast of NZ near Samoa and Tonga. It’s one of the biggest coral islands in the world. It maybe is under New Zealand, but it’s a self-governing nation. It doesn’t have much light pollution, so imagine the starry sky during the night!

What to do in Niue:

  • Star-gaze
  • Snorkel at Limu Pools
  • Discover Palaha Cave
  • Learn more at Taoga Niue Museum
  • Relax at Talava Arches
