I am a citizen of India. I have a Singapore 35-day multiple-entry visa. Am I eligible to get a visa on arrival in the Philippines, without going to Singapore on this visa?

Is it mandatory to go to Singapore on this eVisa once to get a visa on arrival in the Philippines?

I've never been to Singapore or Philippines before.

I have a confirmed return ticket.

  • While a visa issued by Singapore may allow an exemption, your nationality is also a factor. Could you please edit your question to add that? – Giorgio Aug 13 '18 at 15:20
  • @Giorgio I have edited the question description and added nationality – paul Aug 13 '18 at 15:28

According to Timatic, the tool used by airlines to check document requirements (courtesy of Emirates), you do not need a visa to enter the Philippines. Note that having the visa by Singapore exempts you, with no other conditions such as its use.

Philippines (PH)

  • Hey, could you also please add the source link? Why did you mention Republic of Korea is their a connection? – paul Aug 13 '18 at 15:51
