I am an Indian national, working in Saudi Arabia. I wish to go to the Philippines.

  • Can I get a visa from the Philippines Embassy in Saudi Arabia or do I have to apply in India?
  • Assuming a visa is granted, can I travel on it to the Philippines after returning to India?

Yes, if you are in Saudi for 3+ months as of now, you can apply in local Philippines embassy. I will explain my experience in Doha.

You need standard documents like bank statements, confirmed flight tickets, hotel bookings, ID card copy, NOC from employer (at least in Doha), and PCC if visiting first time.

Once you get visa, you could use it from India, there is no restriction of boarding point on visa.
