iVisa
4 min read
Updated on Oct 30, 2023

There are over 7,000 islands in the Philippines, each of which has its own unique characteristics and people who are friendly and welcoming. And did you know that the country is only an hour away from Taiwan by plane?

Good news for Taiwanese citizens who have the Philippines on their bucket list. The Philippines Travel Authorization is now available for Taiwanese travelers!

Keep reading to find out all the entry requirements for the Philippines, how to apply online for the Travel Authorization, and some of the must-sees of this gorgeous island nation.

How to enter the Philippines as a Taiwanese national

First things first! Taiwanese nationals can visit the Philippines as long as they comply with a few simple requirements by the local authorities, which are explained below.

Apply online for the Philippines Travel Authorization

The Philippines Electronic Travel Authorization is available only for Taiwanese passport holders aged 15 or older. The Philippines eTA streamlines the visa application process. Those traveling with a minor under the age of 15, should apply for a visa sticker at their nearest Philippine embassy or consulate.

Eligible Taiwanese travelers can easily complete their Philippines Travel Authorization application online through iVisa by following the below steps:

  • Step 1: Fill out your personal details in English and choose a processing time that suits your needs and budget.

  • Step 2: Double-check your info and pay the processing fee.

  • Step 3: Upload the required documents (if applicable) and click submit.

Once your eTA is approved, each applicant should keep a separate printed version ready on a clean A4 sheet of paper to present upon arrival in the Philippines. You should enter the country within 30 days after issuance.

Apply now!

Note that the amount of time you can stay in the Philippines is up to the visa officer, and the authorization does not guarantee entry into the Philippines.

Philippines Travel Authorization requirements for Taiwanese nationals

Taiwanese travelers who wish to visit the Philippines must provide the following to apply:

  • Passport with a validity period of six months from the date of arrival in the Philippines. Make sure that the information on your application matches the passport info.

  • Debit or credit card, or cash as proof that the traveler has enough funds to cover the trip costs.

  • Return or onward flight ticket confirmation.

  • Hotel or other accommodation booking confirmation.

  • University or company ID, when traveling for short-term studies or business.

COVID-19 entry requirements for the Philippines

There are still some measures in place to prevent the spread of COVID-19 in the country.

Fill out the eTravel Declaration

All visitors to the Philippines, regardless of their vaccination status, must also fill out the eTravel Card, a mandatory health declaration to inform the Philippine government about your health status and contact details.

With iVisa, you can apply for both documents online and ensure you’re fully prepared for your trip!

Vaccination and testing requirements

You can enter the Philippines if you're fully vaccinated against COVID-19, as long as you can show proof of vaccination.

The Philippines requires foreign nationals 15 years or older who are not fully vaccinated against COVID-19 to present a COVID-19 negative rapid antigen test taken no more than 24 hours before departure. If you can't show a test result, you’ll have to take one at the airport with a local healthcare professional.

Children must follow the same entry requirements as their parents or legal guardians.

Philippines travel tips

Exploring the Philippines can take time since all islands are separated by the ocean. Experiencing the entire country in a few days is impossible. However, here are some of the must-sees and major cities to help you plan:

1. Manila: Spend a day or two in the capital city and stay in the trendy area Makati, where all the best restaurants and bars are located.

2. Coron: This small fishing village is all about hopping between stunning islands, relaxing, and hiking up Mount Tapyas.

3. El Nido: Only a 4-hour ferry ride from Coron, this is one of the most breathtaking locations in the Philippines. It is located on Palawan Island and offers stunning white beaches.

4. Bohol: The place to spot the Philippine Tarsier, a small, monkey-like animal.

Safety tips for the Philippines

While the Philippines is generally safe for foreign nationals, always make sure to purchase travel medical insurance before you go. Make sure it covers overseas medical costs, medical treatment in healthcare facilities, medical transport, in case of an emergency.

  • When it comes to crime, always stay cautious and keep your passport and travel documents in a safe spot at your accommodation or in a secured bag, especially when traveling on public transportation.

  • Make sure to use trustworthy tour operators with good reviews, as the quality can vary widely.

  • Other than that, always follow local laws, do what Philippine security forces ask, and do not buy illegal drugs.

  • Violating Philippine immigration laws such as overstaying your visa is a crime.

  • Monitor local media for any changes in entry restrictions and the political and social situation.
