DFA suspends visa issuance for foreigners

The Department of Foreign Affairs (DFA) has temporarily suspended the issuance of visa and visa-free privileges for foreigners in all of its foreign service posts amid the coronavirus disease 2019 (Covid-19) pandemic.

However, the DFA said the temporary suspension has no impact on foreign nationals that are already in the country or on holders of visas issued by other government agencies. The agency also clarified that the suspension of visa issuance abroad is effective immediately, while the visa-free privileges would be temporarily suspended beginning March 22.

All previously issued visas are also deemed cancelled and holders of visas issued by embassies and consulates, such as tourists, will not be allowed entry into the country starting March 22.
