I understand that if I have a Singapore visa (with an Indian passport) I do not need to apply for a Philippines visa. But upon arrival in Manila, will I need to apply for a Visa on Arrival at the airport? Or will I just be able to go directly to Immigration and pass through without a visa? If it is a visa on arrival, what documents are required and what is the cost?

so I am in the Philippines now. Below is my experience from Immigration at Manila airport.

I went straight to Immigration - there was no separate visa-on-arrival counter. The waiting time at immigration was longer than 1 hour though — very poorly managed queues, and slow moving officers.

The officer looked at the following:

  • Philippines e-travel pass (its a QR code covid check thing). You can get one here: https://etravel.gov.ph/. My travel agent did not know about this, and luckily the airline made me register before checking me in.
  • Passports - obviously
  • Singapore Visa
  • Return ticket
  • And, rather weirdly, proof that our daughter is indeed our daughter. Our Indian passports have parents’ names endorsed in passports - so this was not an issue. But I have never been asked this before.

They did not ask for hotel bookings, photographs, or any kind of payment.

LOT of child trafficking incidents hence they need to ensure this. Ideally they ask for birth certificate.
