Visas for Filipinos

Question About US Visa Waiver Program Philippines

Linda asks…

Why don’t visa-seekers in the Philippines go to Guam?

Guam’s independent government allows nationals of the Philippines to enter without a visa. Guam is only a three hour flight from Manila.

Guam, though an independently governed nation, is a US territory. Therefore, any baby born there (or in the air above it), is an automatic US Citizen, and a potential visa sponsor for chain immigration.

So why aren’t Filipinas flocking by the plane-full and boat-full to enter Guam?

Best Answer:

Citizen of the Philippines DO NEED a visa for Guam!

As of November 28, 2009, U.S. Immigration law applies to the Commonwealth of the Northern Mariana Islands (CNMI) and the Guam-CNMI Visa Waiver Program is in effect.
