Guidelines on the Entry of Temporary Visitors to the Philippines
A Visa serves as a pre-entry clearance. Visa holders are still subject to standard immigration controls at ports of entry in the Philippines. The visa issued, however, is not a guarantee that the holder will be admitted into the country. Airport immigration officers have the authority to deny or restrict/limit the entry of a foreign national, as may be warranted by the circumstances.
The Consulate General reserves the right to require the submission of additional supporting documents when necessary.
For Visits falling under other Visa Categories – Please consult the officials of the Philippine Consulate General – Visa Section

VISA-FREE SCHEME FOR INDIANS
The following rules shall apply on the visa-free entry of Indian nationals to the Philippines:
- Indian nationals may be granted a visa-free entry for an initial stay not exceeding fourteen (14) days, provided they possess the following:
a. *Either a valid Australian, Japanese, American (US), Canadian, Schengen, Singaporean or UK (AJACSSUK) visa or permanent residence permit;b. A national passport valid at least six (6) months, beyond the contemplated stay; andc. Return or onward ticket to the next country of destination
- This may only be implemented at Ninoy Aquino International Airport (NAIA) Terminals I, II, III, IV and Clark International Airport.
- This type of admission will be non-convertible to other visa categories.
- For a stay longer than (14) days, they must apply for a visa at the Consulate.
- Indian nationals who do not possess a valid AJACSSUK visa or residence permit must apply for a visa.
*Valid visa refers to both the period of time it may be used and to the number of times it may be used, i.e. single or multiple-entry. Thus, a single-entry AJACSSUK visa that has been used once is no longer considered a valid visa even though it may have an expiry dated one year from now. Likewise, an unused visa that has expired is no longer valid.
