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 Filipinos can go to at least 28 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 Kim Patria)
