  1. Hi, We are planning to travel in Kosovo next year 2018. We have tourist visa in South Korea. Do we need still to get visa or not?
    we also planning to apply tourist visa in Japan. I just check the website of Kosovo under Special Categories:

    -Holders of Travel documents issued by EU Member States, Schengen zone States, United States of America, Canada, Australia and Japan based on the 1951 Convention on Refugee Status or the 1954 Convention on the Status of Stateless Persons, as well as holders of valid travel documents for foreigners, may enter, pass through the territory and stay in the Republic of Kosovo up to 15 days without a visa.

    -Holders of Laissez-Passer, regardless of their nationality, issued by United Nations Organizations, NATO, OSCE, Council of Europe and European Union, are also exempt from the visa requirement.

    I dont know if we need still visa or not for Kosovo? Can you help me guys. TIA

  2. Good Day Sir, Still available this offer job? just now i can see this your message this site hoping still available this i’m willing to apply for housekeeper/house maid…

  3. Hi Mr. and Mrs. Howe,

    I am holding a Philippine passport and would like to inquire if I still need to apply Bosnia and Herzegovina visa though I have a valid Schengen visa now?

  4. Wow! Georgia and Armenia are on my list! I just want to ask or to clarify about the visa for Georgia. I am a filipino, am I eligible to apply for e- visa in Georgia? Even if I don’t have valid visas from US, UK etc.

    And also, if I travel to Georgia with a connecting flight from Dubai, do I need to get a visa to Dubai even if I won’t go outside the airport? Thank you!

  5. Hi Kach!

    I have booked a flight to Nairobi Kenya on a whim. It is visa on arrival right? My Kenyan friend said yes. But i got confused because some website said it is e-visa. I am flying 5 days. Thanks form your guidance. Continue to inspire. 🙂

  6. Im planning to go to east timor, and I saw in your blog that a visa is not required for filipinos for a period of 30 days. However, during my research on the internet I saw that a visa on arrival is required for a fee of 30usd for a 30 days of period of stay, im confused 🙂 and I think we still need to have a show money?

    1. Yep we know that Dom! But writing for Google’s Search algorithm is also necessary that’s why it is written like that. Thanks!

  7. Hi, thank you very much for this info. I’ll be going to cambodia this coming April or May to do some volunteer works and definitely i’ll visit the neighborig countries stated in this article. My only concern is that the requurements that we need for philippine immigration at the airport before departure because it might be the cause of delay for my trip. Heard about alot of stories of travellers being held in the airport that caused them to reschedule or cancell their flights. Thank you in advance..

  8. Hi there..im here in lebanon and im a philippine passport holder. Im planning to have a trip in bolivia next year by march. But my passport gonna expire on august. Is it ok or i have to renew it first cos it takes a lot to wait here to renew the passport..thanks.

    1. You need to have your passport valid for at least 6 months! Also, you have to consider that there’s no Philippines Embassy in some countries in South America so I suggest to renew your passport before you travel!

  9. good day…i am a filipino passport holder residing here in italy and we are planning to visit japan, yes we have residence permit here in italy, and we are wondering if we also need visa to enter japn..your response is mostly appreciated…thank you

  10. Believe it or not, it was this post that i chanced upon that inspired me to pursue a trip to armenia and georgia, now that I have booked my flights and hotel, i already checked the e visa for georgia and fortunately im exempted. Is the one visa on arrival in armenia applicable even to ordinary philippine passport holder like me, as indicated on some site it says on special or diplomatic passport holders are the one who can avail of the visa on arrival it did not clearly state all phippine pASSport holders. trying to use the armenia e visa site but it isnt working. Would you be able to say I am as well exempt from this? Hope to get an answer ..
    Thank you.

    1. Hello Monica, are you based in any GCC countries? I highly suggest get the e-visa even though we have the exemption rule to make sure that’s what I did. Check again their official website or email them.

      1. Agree. If you’re a Philippine passport holder alone you need to get an e-visa (online) in Georgia. Exemptions are: working/resident in GCC (e.g. UAE, Qatar, KSA, Oman etc…) or you have valid tourist visa in US or UK (multiple entry). Hope it helps
