Appointment for visa applications: visa.gov.ph and bruneipe.setmore.gov.ph

After thoroughly preparing the requirements, please come to the Embassy (during office hours; please note our holidays) with the necessary documents. If you have queries before your application, email us beforehand at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. 

Visa fee is non-refundable in case an application is denied. Please ensure that all the requirements are prepared before your application.

It is the applicant’s responsibility to ensure that sufficient time is allowed for visa application and processing. Due to the high volume of applications for consular services received by the Embassy, and in order to ensure the integrity of the Embassy’s visa services, requests to have visas issued earlier cannot be entertained.

Regular processing for single-entry visas takes two (2) working days if the application is complete and in order, other than in exceptional cases noted below. Visa services are available from Mondays to Fridays (except on holidays), which means that Saturdays and Sundays are not counted in determining the collection date of the visa.

Multiple-entry visa applications may be entertained in highly meritorious circumstances, but prior authority needs to be received from the Department of Foreign Affairs, which takes approximately 4 weeks. The applicant’s passport will not be retained by the Embassy and will only be presented once the authority has been issued, after which the visa will be released after two working days.

Visa applicants 13 years old and above must appear in person in the Embassy for the visa interview; those below 13 years old need not appear personally for the visa application.
