The Philippines and Argentina are working closely for Filipino travelers planning to visit the famous South American country. The Argentine government announced that Filipinos holding a non-immigrant B2 United States visa may now find it easier to apply for a visa to visit Argentina.
The Philippine Embassy in the capital of Buenos Aires said the government has included the Philippines among a group of selected countries that may avail of easier access to an Argentine visa.
Argentina offers Filipino travelers a land of natural and man-made wonders. From the glaciers and sky-scraping peaks of the Andes to the vineyards of Mendoza and the bustle of Buenos Aires, there’s so much to see in this dynamic and incomparably unique country.
The country’s visa access system grants Filipino nationals, who already have non-immigrant B2 United States visa, the facility of applying for their Argentine visa through the website of the National Directorate for Migration (Direccion Nacional de Migraciones; migraciones.gov.ar).
“The inclusion of the Philippines on this list is seen to increase tourism and people-to-people exchanges, especially as more Filipinos develop a taste for traveling to new destinations,” the Embassy said.
Argentina had first implemented the AVE for Chinese citizens with valid B2 US visas to facilitate their arrivals without the need to visit an Argentine Embassy in order to obtain a visa.
In the Philippines, Argentines may enter the country visa-free for a period of thirty days.
