- Only nationals from Taiwan can apply for an Electronic Travel Authorization (eTA) for the Philippines instead of a Standard Visa.
- The Philippines eTA allows applicants multiple entries in the Philippines and they can remain in the country for up to 30 days.
- This eTA can be issued for purposes such as tourism, business, attending a conference or visiting a relative. If you want to travel to the Philippines for work or studies, you cannot apply for this eTA.
- Upon arrival in The Philippines, you will have to present your biometric passport along with your eTA, which has to be printed.
- Travelers must have their passport with at least 6-months validity from the date of arrival and have at least 1 page available for stamping.
- Possession of an eTA for the Philippines does not provide automatic right of entry for the holder into the country. The Immigration Officer at the port of entry may refuse entry to any person, if he considers that such a person is unable to fulfil the immigration requirements or that such person’s presence in the Philippines would be contrary to national interests or security.
