Visa policy of the Philippines:

The visa policy of the Philippines is governed by Commonwealth Act No. 613, also known as the Philippine Immigration Act, and by subsequent legislation amending it. The Act is jointly enforced by the Department of Foreign Affairs (DFA) and the Bureau of Immigration (BI), although visas are issued under the sole prerogative of the BI. Generally, foreign nationals who wish to enter the Philippines require a visa unless: He/she is a citizen of a member state of the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) He/she is a citizen of a non-ASEAN member state whose nationals are allowed to enter the Philippines He/she is a balikbayan and is only returning to the Philippines temporarily Visa policy of the Philippines

Visa waiver program:

The Philippine visa waiver program is governed by Executive Order No. 408, signed on November 9, 1960 by President Carlos P. Garcia, and by subsequent executive issuances amending it. While visas are issued by the BI, the program itself is administered by the Department of Foreign Affairs, which maintains a list of countries eligible to participate in the program. In principle, nationals of countries which maintain diplomatic relations with the Philippines and whose nationals are not classified as restricted nationals by the DFA are allowed to enter the Philippines without a visa. Eligible nationals availing of visa-free entry must possess passports valid for at least six months beyond their contemplated period of stay . On July 1, 2013, the BI began implementing an extended visa waiver for covered nationals from 21 to 30 days, which the Philippine government hopes will boost tourism. The program will be fully implemented in August . Visa exempt foreign nationals may extend their stay two months per extension but not exceeding the maximum period of two years.[4] Foreign nationals who require a visa may extend their stay one month per extension but not exceeding the maximum period of six months and must have a ticket valid for onward travel . In March 2015 it was proposed to extend the visa exemption to citizens of China and India. Visa waiver program
