Countries without VISA Requirements for Filipinos.

So I was thinking about Brazil and smiling at the thought that they don't require a VISA for a Filipino traveler like me. How awesome is it to see giant Jesus on top of the mountain? :)

Photos from Google Images. Collaged by me.

So Google was fairly helpful in looking for more countries not requiring VISA when traveling. What I'm not sure of is, if the data below is currently up to date, so readers, please verify before you buy your plane tickets, ok? :)

Below is the best list I could get, but i'm not sure when this entry was posted so please DOUBLE CHECK!
Philippine Passport holders can visit Hongkong, Macau and all members of ASEAN (Association of Souteast Asean Nations). Member countries are Brunei, Cambodia, Indonesia, Laos, Malaysia, Myanmar, Singapore, Thailand and Vietnam.

Other countries you may visit with just your Philippine passports are:
 Fiji, Palau, Micronesia, Tonga, Vanuatu, Samoa, Israel, Bermuda, Cuba, Jamaica, Morocco, Kenya, Seychelles (some African states issue visa on arrival), Brazil, Bolivia, Colombia, Ecuador, Peru, Suriname, Uruguay, Costa Rica, Nicaragua, Slovenia, Macedonia

Stumbled upon your blog while looking for PEru requirements... guess what. I've been working here in Brazil since 2007. When I went back to Pinas in 2009 my work VISA was expiring so my employer told me to go to the embassy to renew. The brazilians were the ones who told me that I can reenter as a tourist since Pinoys do not need a VISA for 90 DAYS!!! When I asked them if americans can do that they said NO. Ang saya for once di ba? Well... I'm headed to Peru over the holy week and as a Phil passport holder, no VISA required din. Punta ka dito if you havent been here yet, Rio is the best!

Nice blog by the way! Cheers!

Hi Caretaker of Schrodinger's Cat! Are you still in Brazil now? Are there a lot of job opportunities for Filipinos out there?
