Before you apply

In order to apply for a visa from the Philippines, you must either be a citizen of the Philippines or legally reside here.

If you want someone to act on your behalf in connection with your application, you must authorise this person to do so. Please visit the UDI website for more information and the relevant form.

Group registration: If two or more people of the same nationality are travelling together, for any kind of purpose, they should register using the group application, not individual applications. This ensures quicker processing time. Groups of more than 15 people should be divided into smaller subgroups.

If there are no available appointment slots for groups on the Application Portal, please contact VFS directly to arrange an appointment. Do not use individual appointments for groups as this will increase the processing time for the visa applications.
