    Hi there Rhea..
    I want to ask if you still need a visa or a transient visa if you have a connecting flight from Edmonton,Ca to Taipei then from Taipei to Philippines.
    The last time I travelled was that I had a connecting flight from the UK-Frankfurt-Chicago-Edmonton – personnel from Frankfurt asked me for a transient visa going to Chicago.
    So gusto ko lang mkasiguro if I needed a visa kahit ilang oras lng ang stopover sa Taipei.

    Hi Reah – just recently i had a very very disappointed tour in Prishtina, Kosovo.

    i had arrange my flight and booking all in all 3 months before my tour – I am a resident of Dubai, UAE.

    tour plan :

    Dubai – Amman ( June 5-8 )
    Amman – Prishtina ( June 8-14)
    Prishtina – Istanbul ( June 14-20)
    Istanbul – Casablanca ( June 20-26)
    Casablanca to Dubai ( June 26)

    * i was able to reached in Prishtina Immigration and immediately the Kosovo Immigration has rejected me to ENTRY – they asks me an invitations – HOLD me in airport police office for 4 hours and sending me back to country of origin – Amman, Jordan!

    * i lost all my tours,- hotel, flights and money.

    I had made all my booking to Kosovo because of 90 days visa free upon arrival but suddenly the treaty was amended – and they are not considerable to allow me to go inside Prishtina.

    Just a share – for info :-(

      No need for visa if you’re going to SG. as long as tourist ka lang. bsta may mga documents kang ipapakita like booking sa hotel, return tickets and itenerary. kung sa kamag anak ka nman mag stay i think need mo ng invitation letter from them. this isa based on experienced. goodluck

      I don’t believe there are any direct flights from Manila to South America . The flights stop at an US airport La and there a type of visa preferiably a CI Transit visa is requiered if only to change planes to proceed to an South America destination.

        does it mean that we still need to go to U.S. Embassy to apply for that CI Transit Visa? What are the chances of getting an approved CI visa? I thought a plane ticket and passport will do :(

          Yes, if you are a Philippina traveling from Manila to South America a C1 transit visa is requiered because the flight will stop-over at an US airport. Via internet you can make appointment through the Manila American Embassy . I’m not sure if Immigration there grants them easily but it is certainly possible. Who knows, maybe in the future there will be a direct flight from Manila to South America. That would be a step in the right direction.
