Countries Pinoys can visit without a visa

It’s more fun in the Philippines, but amid good economic news, many

Filipinos are traveling abroad both for business and leisure. Japan has

recently allowed multiple-entry visas for Filipino citizens. South Korea

is also reportedly mulling improving visa requirements for Pinoys.
 
But did you know that as of June 30, 2013, Filipinos can go to at least 25 other countries without having to worry about visas?

This

is according to an “unofficial” and “indicative” list the Department of

Foreign Affairs made available to Yahoo! Southeast Asia. Filipinos have

however been told to always check with embassies or consulates when

making travel plans, as visa policies change from time to time. (Text by
