Visa upon arrival

Recommended Posts

Woolf

Arrived saturday  afternoon, at about 4 pm, mactan, asked about visa upon arrival, he told me  to stay inline and ask at the booth

well long line,  when I got a little closer asked again an officer, he again asked me to stay in line

a little later he told me to go to booth 1, she checked that  was not blacklisted,was ok, gave passport and 3000 piso o the officer, he came back 5 minutes 

later with passport and receipt ok back to booth 1   got my 59 days stay permit

Saves me a trip to immigration

You’d have to virtually live next door to an embassy or consulate to make the 59 days cheaper than that but it will never be as easy as Woolf’s visa on arrival.

Before my SRRV, Legazpi - and that’s probably why I now have the SRRV!😄

There is no BI in Masbate.

The Legazpi BI always gave me great service and I only ever saw one other foreigner there so it was a pretty quiet office. The travel logistics were a pain though.

It’s about CAD$45 in Toronto. But to get it less than Woolf’s P3000 you’d have to live next door to the Consulate. Two trips, travel, parking, application form, photos, copy of eticket, statement of financial ability. It all adds up.

I have had at least 6 in the last couple years 59 days free. As the Americans say it's quid pro quo as we give 59 days free to pinoys coming to nz

Do Filipinos have to get their visas at the NZ embassy prior to traveling to NZ, or can they get visas on arrival?

The US is on New Zealand’s list of 60 visa waiver countries. As a result, you are not required to go to the nearest embassy to apply for your visa before departure. There is a catch, however. You do not need a New Zealand visa as long as you do not plan on staying there for more than 3 months. However, you will need to apply for an ETA. As such, you can basically apply online with iVisa. 

WHAT IS AN ETA?

The New Zealand Tourist eTa (NZ Electronic Travel Authority) is an electronic visa waiver that grants the right to enter multiple times to New Zealand. There is no need to make an appointment or present original documents to the Embassy or Consular Office.
