Where can your Philippine passport take you? When many countries are demanding Visa for certain people to get into their country, it is comforting to know that there are still those who openly welcome tourists without the hassle of requiring Visa before entry or otherwise offer Visa on Arrival instead.
As a Philippine Passport Holder, to be able to get into countries Visa-free is a boon to pocket money as it no longer necessitates the need to pay for Visa application and is even more convenient than having to go through the trouble of doing it before any trip.

My passport keep my employer…
He said…im not allowed to keep my passport…
hi marissa, that’s the situation that a lot of people are facing. that’s why it’s good to know the law first and not give it to them before accepting a job or even after accepting a job. If they keep your passport, you tell them to show you what law states that they should keep it. if they say that it’s normal, then again we need to exert our rights.
