How to Apply For Venezuela Tourist Visa for Filipinos

Want to visit a country filled with biodiversity in South America? Here’s our guide on how to get Venezuela Tourist Visa for Filipinos.

Venezuela or the Bolivarian Republic of Venezuela is located on the northern coast of South America. It is a perfect location if you want to explore and see different species. As a Filipina, I’m pretty interested to see what Venezuela has to offer. You see, the Spaniards colonized both the Philippines and Venezuela, and most likely, some cultures are similar. And without much of a surprise, Filipinos need to apply for a visa if you wish to go to Venezuela.

My Personal Experience

I obtained my Venezuela visa last November 15, and I was granted a ‘1 – year multiple visa entry’. The requirements are almost the same with the Chile and Argentina visa, so preparing for it wasn’t hard.  Again, it is best to prepare additional supporting documents and always have a positive attitude. Bring your best foot forward and instantly get your visa.

  5. Hi Kach,

    Where did you apply? Did you apply for a Venezuela visa whilst in South America?

    Did you specifically ask for a 1 year multiple-entry visa? or is it at the discretion of the visa officer what type of visa to give you?

  6. I am a Thai Citizen but, however, there is no Venezuelan Embassy or Consulate in Thailand. I had plan to travel to Caimana National Park and Angel Fall (might be ) next year. So, I have a question, If I apply Venezuelan Visa in Manila, Do I need to go by myself and stay there until receive a visa or just send all my document and passport oversea?
