Philippines’ PEZA Travel Requirements Change

Effective August 1, 2023, the Philippine Economic Zone Authority (PEZA) no longer requires foreign nationals and their dependents holding PEZA visas to obtain a Travel Pass.

Since March 1, 2021, all foreign nationals holding visas (except 9(a) visas and Emigration Clearance Certificates issued by the Bureau of Immigration (BI)) have been required to obtain a Travel Pass from the visa-issuing agency (i.e. BI or PEZA) and present it to the immigration authorities on departure.
