Visa-on-arrival for mainland Chinese visitors to the Philippines

Published on : Tuesday, December 13, 2016

visa-on-arrival-counterMany residents of the Philippines along with business tycoons are proposing that the government needs to adopt a “visa-on-arrival” (VOA) rule for mainland Chinese visitors instead of securing a visa from their place of origin. The visa could be processed upon arrival by the Chinese visitors and pasted on their passports before they clear the immigration process. Since the country’s relation with China is softening gradually, number of Chinese visitors to the Philippines could increase many times. It just requires one signature upon arrival.

 
Many Chinese tourists have come in the Philippines illegally, with many of them working unlawfully at an online gaming facility in Clark – with gangsters and crime bosses using fabricated names and aliases. With this VOA policy, the government will be able to monitor arrivals in the country in a better way.

 

Reports say that the number of Chinese visitors last year increased by over 24% or close to 500,000 compared to 2014, which had 400,000 Chinese arrivals in the country. In the current year, the number of visitors from China has significantly increased in October and November.
