DFA warns vs websites facilitating e-visas
The Department of Foreign Affairs (DFA) warned the public on Monday against spurious websites claiming to facilitate Philippine electronic Visa (e-Visa).
The DFA said it received reports that an active website containing misinformation on the e-Visa and other regulations is being circulated.
The DFA clarified that information on the e-Visa will only be published through its official channels.
The DFA earlier announced that the e-Visa system will be soft-launched in Philippine Foreign Service Posts in China on Aug. 24.
The Philippine e-Visa will allow foreign nationals entering the country for tourism or business to apply for temporary visitors’ visas remotely through their personal computers, laptops and mobile devices.
Chinese nationals may access the Philippine e-Visa website via https://visa.e.gov.ph, which will be operational starting Aug. 24.
