It isn't very easy to apply for a visa. So I'm really glad there are places we could visit visa-free.
But also, I am proud about the places I've been to where I had to apply for a visa to enter.
It was hard work, but certainly all worth it.

There are still so many places to visit. And I hope one day it will be easier for us Filipinos
to get visas. Better still, I hope one day, we'll live in a world without borders. :)


Just sharing this funny story, although it wasn't funny at that time.

(I guess we all know how difficult it is to apply for a visa).

The Japanese embassy gave me another person's visa!
When I opened my passport where the visa was glued,
I was so shocked to see a man's face staring at me. Haha.

They changed it, of course.


I just realized I've been to China three times. And I'm going back in May.
Oh, I love Beijing and I'm already very excited.


This was one of the most memorable trips I made. And I want to go back.
Dear Universe, are you listening?


I want another Schengen visa, too. Still in my dreams list -- Italy.
And I certainly want to go back to France.

  1. I have two babaw short-term travel goals: to go someplace that requires a visa, and to go on a trip that requires a layover, haha! Hopefully we get to have a Japan visa this year. :)

    I wish I can travel to all the countries on this list. *sigh*

  3. You're lucky to have visited China several times. Beijing must be exciting to see.
    One thing very tempting when visiting Europe is being in different countries in a short time. One can be in France in the morning and be in Switzerland by noon, and Italy the next day. Looking forward to your pictures!

  8. Hi K! This is the link from the Embassy of India: http://www.embindia.org.ph/tourist_visa.php

    Visas are issued upon arrival. But you also have a choice to get your visa prior to traveling.

    For Taiwan, there are conditions (such as the one mentioned in this entry).
    It was in the news, here's a link to the article:
    http://www.philstar.com/Article.aspx articleId=450804&publicationSubCategoryId=202

    Re references: just google each of the countries' websites or blogs/sites with this list.

  9. For India, there are limited cities that allow us to get visa on arrival: Mumbai, Delhi, Chennai, Kolkata... the rest, you need to get visa from high commission in manila.

  17. Thanks for sharing this list! It's a real bummer when you have to apply for a visa to visit a country you like, even worse when you get denied after all that trouble and cost for a visa application so it's good to know there are a lot of other countries to choose from that are not only in SE Asia. Your blog is very informative and a great inspiration to go travel. :)

  19. Thanks for sharing... it gives a lot of information. But i think if you go to these countries that not requires visa or visa upon arrival our immigration officers here in manila will start interrogating you about your visa and worst they may not allow you to leave the country. pls. answer... thanks & god bless!

    1. Our Immigration Officers, I assume, know which countries we Pinoys are allowed without visas. In all my travels to countries that does not need any visa, I was never interrogated or questioned. It would just be too weird if they will not allow you to leave.

    2. I never got interrogated by our phil immig officers about where im going as i always have appropriate visas but they do nose about why i went to certain countries. I have been to 17 countries and territories (like macau & hk), as China visa is still separate.

      Thanks for ur blog. I may or may not use it but its good to know i do have the options. Specially when holidays are unplanned. Its nice to know i can just get up and go.

      Ur pix made me smile and cherish my visas. Some of them are my schengen, usa, australia, japan, uk, dubai although its just a stamp. i do have canada but u was not able
      to use it.

      Ur post made me happy. Sometimes ppl think its bragging. But actually its something i enjoyed doing. and its sad i cannot talk or share about it as much. I do collect magnets as cheezy as it is and a free map of every city i have been into. The kind u get from the airport and hotels. :)

    3. Hi Aysha,

      I'm glad to know this post made you happy! I totally understand about cherishing your visas because I know how hard it is to apply for one. : ) Continue traveling! And yes, like you, I collect ref magnets, too! In fact, my ref is filled with magnets already! : )

  22. I think getting your first visa is one of the hardest ones. After that, it may be easier to apply to other embassies. I want a Schengen Visa someday!

    1. There will be no problem for her going out of the Philippines and passing through Philippine immigration for as long as she has complete travel documents. Everyone were first-time travelers sometime in their life, so I could see no problem for her to leave the Philippines. Whoever told her that she will have problems with immigration in Manila must not have traveled out of the country themselves.

      Just let her prepare all her travel documents (passport, ticket), money (to pay airport taxes, etc), and fill out travel forms when she gets to the airport. Tell her to bring ballpen and ID.

    1. The rule is, you can no longer use your passport 6 months before its expiry date. But if you are using it in December, you can still use it. But if I were you, I would renew it na, just to be sure. : )

    1. If you are holding a Philippine passport, then obviously, you cannot enter the US without a visa. So, no, you cannot go to San Francisco without a visa.
