Visa - Free Travel for Filipinos

Gone are the days when traveling is only for rich people and retired ones. Thank you for the cheap airfares, seat sale and long weekend because it gives us a chance to fly and see the world. 

Traveling out of the country is not cheap because we have to pay travel tax, terminal fee and visa. Visa is not cheap, aside from the visa fee you need to spend money for other requirements like photo, bank certificate, travel medical insurance and other expenses. 

The sad part is, if your visa is denied you cannot refund the expenses that you have spent. But don’t worry according to Wikipedia; here are the countries that are visa-free for Filipinos and some countries that issue visa-on-arrival with a minimal fee.
