In the Philippines, the normal processing time is 3 to 5 days working days from the day after the date of the acceptance of the application.
However, if any kind of checking is required (the submission of additional documents, an interview with the applicant, inquiries, etc.), or if a visa application is made for the purpose of a long-term stay without a Certificate of Eligibility, etc., the examination may take longer than five working days (from several weeks to several months). Therefore, it is recommended that you make the application months before the scheduled date of departure.
In Vietnam and some other ASEAN countries, 5 to 7 days is the normal process.
Please note of the following to avoid any delays in your application:
- Remove passport cover
If not, application will not be processed and returned to you.
- Application Form is A4 size(210×297) only
- No Correction Tape(Liquid)
In case there is a need to make a correction on the application form and other documents, please refrain from using
correction tape or liquid. Instead, use a double line to erase/correct the wrong information.
- No Staplers
Do not staple application forms, other requirements for visa application and passport.
Remove all staples before submission. e.g: ITR / Receipts issued by PSA and NSO / Bank Certificates
- No Frixion Erasable Pen
Please do not use Frixion Erasable Pen in Visa Application Form and in all documents.
