The Philippine Embassy wishes to advise Chinese and Indian nationals who are Australian Permanent Visa holders and wish to avail of visa-free entry into the Philippines to secure Australian visa labels on their passports.


The Embassy also wishes to note that the Philippine Bureau of Immigration would not be able to properly assess the travel documents of these individuals without the Australian visa labels.


Alternatively, affected individuals may simply apply for a Philippine visa.
