A Philippines Non-immigrant Visa is available to overseas nationals who want to stay in the Philippines for a specific but limited purpose. 

The Non-immigrant Visa is a temporary visa and cannot be used as a route to settle in the Philippines.

There are different types of non-immigrant visas, with each one depending on the basis of your visit. Some common reasons for wanting a Non-immigrant Visa are tourism, business, and studying.

What are the requirements for the Philippines Non-immigrant Visa?

You need to apply for a non-immigrant visa if you plan to stay in the Philippines for longer than 30 days. You will also need to provide the following documents:

  • Your original copy of your UK passport (if the validity of your passport is less than six months, you should renew it before submitting your application)
  • One passport-style photograph of you taken within the last six months
  • Proof of your UK residency status
  • Livelihood proof (recent bank statements that show sufficient funds) 
  • The last three months salary slip or a copy of your pension statement
  • A record of any criminal offences (if applicable).

Do you need a notary?

Yes, many of the documents you need to provide during the application process require notarisation.
