I will be travelling to Philippines in December and i have been going through visa free travel requirements for it. As per the Philippines consulate FAQ link , if you hold a valid Japan visa and meet other requirements then you don't require visa to enter Philippines. I do hold Japan visa and meet other requirements as well.
But i am quite skeptical and my worry is what if immigration officer refuses entry without visa.
It will be very helpful if someone can share their experience or guide me on how to approach this.
