Visa-Free Destinations in the Middle East for Pinoys

No visa? No problem!
by | September 25, 2019


As Philippine passport holders, we find it hard to travel because of the restrictions put upon us by our passport. We need to apply for visas to get to the places we want to see, and from expensive application fees to proving financial capability, visa applications are definitely not easy. So why not explore the destinations that require no visa or at least those that issue one upon arrival?


There are countries in the Middle East that we can explore without having to go through the hassle of getting a visa. But due to misconceptions, we often find ourselves afraid of booking that trip. Still, when you foster a sense of adventure and keep an open mind, you’d find out how amazing the countries here are.

But of course, make sure to check with the official government agencies in case there are any changes in visa policies.

Considered to be the first Christian country, Armenia is a small yet absolutely charming country full of rich culture and ancient history wrought with tragedy. The great mountainscapes and stunning views invite tourists to explore. The capital Yerevan is a good place to start learning more about the country’s history and culture. Soar high through the Wings of Tatev, the longest reversible cableway in the world (the ride takes a whole 12 minutes!). At the end of the tramway, explore the famous and ancient Tatev monastery, famous for being one of the oldest monastery complexes in the world. Or if you’d like a quiet day, go fishing in the Sevan Lake, one of the biggest high-altitude lakes in the world.
