PostSubject: Pinoys can visit at least 20 countries without visas - DFA    Thu Jan 19, 2012 11:31 am


Filipino travelers do not need a visa to visit at least 20 countries, according to information provided by the Department of Foreign Affairs.

These countries include most of the Philippines' Southeast Asian neighbors, but also Latin Americantourist destinations Brazil, Peru, Bolivia and Costa Rica.

GMA News Online requested the information from the DFA after noting widespread online glee several weeks ago over a Facebook post that listed about 60 countries where Filipinos can go visa-free.

After sending queries to Philippine embassies and consular posts, the DFA would only confirm 20 countries. But its public information office added that they are still waiting to hear from some overseas posts.

The information provided in the viral Facebook post supposedly came from the International Air Transport Association (IATA), Qantas, Wikipedia, Visalink, and VisaHq.ph.
