Dear Wanderer,
This blog post was written in April, 2011 when I was planning for my big trip around the world. It was 100% accurate during that time, but it has been 5 years.
I’m sorry it has mislead some of you. I have not updated this post because I’ve not been back to those countries. I did not take down this post because people are continuously sharing information on the comment section that helped other applicants.
But I’m sure it has given you a starting point for applying. For example, the embassy addresses, telephone nos, and email addresses are all correct. You could have seen my blog post date and thought, “hmm, maybe it’s not updated, after all, it was written 5 years ago. I should check with the embassy, oh hey, a phone number, let me try that”

Israel VISA

Filipinos don’t need visa going to Israel!

Israel has visa exemption agreements with many countries and we’re one of them! Philippine passport holders are allowed to visit for 90 days. Note that this is visa for tourism and not allowed for work or studying. This agreement allows Israeli visitors get 59 days visa on arrival while the rest of foreign visitors (Brazilian is another exception) only get 30 days.
