What are the restrictions on someone with one felony in US to obtain a Visa in Philippines?
Best to get your information directly from the Philippines Embassy. President Duterte however, may not like having a felon visiting his country.
Here is an answer to a similar question. Hope it is helpful
Hello! Could you tell us more about the person involved? Consulting the Philippine Embassy directly might be a good idea, but I don't think it's the best way to deal with your concern as they might only escalate the issue. Here's a similar thread:
Entering philippines with past criminal record
Actually , i think an email or phonecall to the Philippine embassy is a great idea-----at least you get it straight form the horse'r mouth.
No point trying to go there with something to hide, as this may create bigger problems
From what I gather its OK when visiting and getting regular extensions. I was wondering about 6mo. Visas, before I was living there 2 1/2 yrs without exiting, had a Permanent Visitors ID. Now that I've been back in US I caught a felony threw a bad divorce, made a threat by phone. That's all it takes. I'm going there anyway and try it out, worst can happen is fly back.
Well, not all travelers has clean record. They don't ask you about it....but better to be honest. Best to consult a Philippines embassy
Before landing in Manila airport they distributed tourist arrival card on the plane and it ain't ask on the form if have you have criminal record or not......unlike other countries such as : Australia you can't hide they'll ask on the immigration form
Yes, I'm just going to go threw things like before. My dad been there 16yrs so even 28 days visit is better than nothing, keep extending until someone has a problem. I'm sure it will be fine. Thanks for the info.
