​• Business visitors to the Philippines typically require a Section 9(a) Temporary Visitor’s Visa from a Philippine consular post unless they are a citizen of a visa-exempt country. The duration of allowable stay also depends on the business visitor’s nationality.
• A Philippine registered company must sponsor a foreign national’s application for work authorization. The Special Work Permit (SWP) is suitable for assignments of six months or less. Various types of long-term work authorizations are available for assignments that exceed six months. Work permit or work visa applications are generally filed once the applicant enters the Philippines.​​​​​
