  3. 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.

  4. 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 ๐Ÿ™

  10. my family is planning to visit New Zealand for 3 or 4 days.
    what are the requirements and how long the visa will take ?
    plz reply thank you.

    1. 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.

      1. Hi po plano papunta po ako s Seychelles africa galing from India this december for 10 days. Ticket lang po ang dalhil ko baka pagdating sa airport questionin ako baka need parin ng entry permit galing embassy. Pa sure lang po sa mga nakaka alam. Salamat

      2. 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 ๐Ÿ™

        1. 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.

          1. Please inform me if you know a Filipina that has tried
            to get a CI transit visa from the Manila Amercican Embassy. Much appreciated.
