Can I transit in another country before returning to my home country using an emergency travel document? I'm a Malaysian currently in Japan. I lost my passport and I'm currently being issued an emergency travel document. The problem here is that I have to transit through the Philippines before returning to Malaysia. Will there be any problems during my transit?
No, you would not need a visa for your connection, according to Timatic, the tool used by airlines to check document requirements. Your emergency passport document issued by Malaysia is accepted for entry into The Philippines (whether transit or maximum stay of 30 days).
