Having traveled in different parts of the world, I am all too familiar with the pains of holding a Philippine passport. Almost every entry in a foreign country requires a visa for Filipinos. So with this list of visa exemptions for Filipinos as categorized in every continent is a wonderful breath of fresh air. The Philippine passport is not such a bummer after all.

NOTE: This is only a re-post from a helpful travel website. But still make sure with the travel agency, the embassy or the world wide web that these information are correct to avoid any disaster in your future trips.

Indulge!
