    Hi, please help i am planning to travel in mainland china to visit my fiancé family in xiamen Can you please tell me some other way to have a chinese visa as i dont have BIR, i am asking some invitation letter from my bf's parents, is that enough for me to have a visa? And how much money do i need to have in my bank account for the bank certificate?

    • Clare :2016/11/1 4:23:00

      Honnie, an invitation letter from your boyfriend can make you exempt from proving flight itinerary and hotel reservation. The financial support proof may also be required. If you don’t have BIR, you can provide other documents to show your financial support proof such as your work certificate, payment slip, or bank savings account. There is no exact requirement for how much you should have in your bank account, while you need to make sure that you can pay for all your expenses in China.

    Hi, I have a question. Is it possible to travel to HK from Philippines and cross to Macau then from Macau back to Philippines? We will visit Macau for a day and we wont go back to HK anymore because its cheaper to fly from Macau going back to Philippines than HK-Phil. Will that be possible? We'll be staying in HK for 3 days and 1 day in Macau. Btw, we own a Philippine passport.

    • Darcy :2016/9/14 5:31:00

      It is possible. But you need to provide the accommodation arrangement in HK at the border.

    Hi I'm a Philippine passport holder I'm planning to visit Macau for 4 days but I would like to travel to HK for abt a day I'm just interested in Ocean Park what do I need to present aside from my passport once I reach HK via ferry? Do I need to present my return ticket going to macau and Do I get a stamp on my passport when I enter HK from macau? Please help I really need answer to this.

    • Zoe :2016/5/27 23:50:00

      Sher, you also need to provide enough travel fees, and the return ticket. The stamp may not be necessary because your passport may not be stamped because you can enjoy free entry there.

    • Beb :2016/8/17 20:20:00

    Hello, I am a Philippine passport holder. I have already booked a flight to HK. I and my student, who is a Japanese, is planning to meet at HK. I am just afraid i might get offloaded, and is it true that i need to have an invitation letter to pass through immigration? (Are there other things that i need to prepare) Another thing is we have already booked our hotel and what is reflected on the reservation is her name, is it really necessary to have a hotel reservation under your name to pass through immigration?I will just be staying in HK for 4 days and right after that i will fly directly to Japan. Would i be encountering any problems along the way? (sorry it's my first time to travel abroad) I am my student will be going to Japan at the same flight. Do i need to prepare other things? or just the same things that i prepared in going to HK? PLEASE REPLY THE SOONEST.

    • Ethan :2016/8/12 5:12:00

      The invitation letter is not necessary. The hotel reservation may be inspected randomly. So take it easy! Usually, as long as you provide your passport, the return ticket and enough travel fees, you won’t encounter any problems. You don’t need to prepare other things.

    • Andy :2016/8/12 5:01:00

    Good Day, I am in Philpines and just wanted to ask, is't possible if my filipino friend who lives and work in Macao can send me an Invitation letter?, if yes what paticular rquirements needed for my friend and I to prepare? Do I still need a show money for that or a hotel ticket? While staying in Macao, can I exit HK so I can have my round trip ticket? Pls. be advice. Thanks

    • Ford :2016/7/1 4:19:00

      Your friend can issue the invitation letter to you. You need to provide copy of your passport, the return ticket, proof of your financial support, and the invitation letter from your friend. Your friend needs to provide the residence permit and passport. You should prepare at least MOP 5,000 as show money. You can exit HK during your stay in Macau.

    • Gloria :2016/7/1 4:21:00

      You should prepare your passport, the return ticket, and enough travel fees. It won’t be that difficult. Just relax.

    Good Day, Me and My Sister are going to Macau this Month of May 24 to 29 2016.. And planning to make some tour also in Shenzhen.. Is it possible that we just buy a visa at the boarding gate of Macau going to Shenzhen or should we apply a Chinese visa here in our country, we are a Philippine Passport holder and our flight is Manila to Macau and then back Manila.. Hoping for the Response.. Thank You And God Bless!

    • David :2016/7/1 4:24:00

      I’m afraid you cannot get Shenzhen VOA at the border. You should apply for the entry permit in your home country ahead of your trip.

    Is it wise to go first to hongkong when you want to go to china..to avoid getting offloaded on philippine immigration?

    • Edward :2016/6/11 5:44:00

      Liezel, if you have valid entry permit to mainland PRC, you don’t need to worry about that. Of course, you can go to HK first and then enter mainland PRC from there.

    Hi! I'm from Philippines. Is it necessary to show some cards like debit card, credit card on going to HK? And does the immigration require show money?

    • Peter :2016/6/4 2:41:00

      Shana, if it is not required, you don’t need to prepare the show money. If it is required, you should have at least USD 100 for each day.

    • Dora :2016/6/4 2:39:00

      You can enjoy free entry to HK for a stay of no more than 14 days. And because you have entry permit to mainland PRC, you can go there too. As for the show money, you’d better prepare USD 100 per day.

    Hi,good day :-) i just came from macau last May 4 to visit my husband. I stayed there for only 3 weeks.I am planning to visit him again anytime this month. Is it ok to return to macau again even if I just came from there few weeks ago? Or do i need to spend a couple of months here in the philippines before they allow me to go back again? Thank you so much :-)

    • Jack :2016/6/4 2:38:00

      I think it may be okay. There is no specific requirement for the time gap between you two entries. And on most cases, you should wait for a relatively long time, but it’s not that absolute. You can have a try.

      Hi... im philippine passport holder and planning to visit hk with my fiance this december...Do we need a hotel reservation? Can we just check in in hotel upon arrival?How much show money we needed?Do we need bank statement?

    • Jenny :2016/6/4 2:34:00

      Dear Janlyn, the hotel reservation is not necessary because it is inspected randomly, so you can possibly check in at a hotel upon arrival.As for the show money, you need to prepare it, but there is no requirement for the specific amount. And you need to prepare at least USD 100 per day per person. Bank statement may work.

    I am a filipino and i am here in kuwait i will travel to HK before i come back to philippines. So my ticket will be kuwait to HK and HK to manila. Is it okay to present my return ticket going to philippines a reservation ticket that not yet confirmed? I am planning to settle it when i arrive in HK. It is just reserve in the system but not yet paid it will be confirmed after i pay it when i arrive at HK. The immigration of HK will allow me to travel if i show them my return ticket just a reservation ticket?

    • Jenny :2016/5/27 23:47:00

      MJ, I think maybe you need to provide a confirmed return ticket. Just to play safe.

    Hi. We went to Macau and HK last week but then we we're not able to get a stamp from both countries. We only received a card in Macau upon arrival. How do we put it in our passports? And no HK stamp were stamped in our passports.

      Yang, currently, your passport won’t be stamped when you go there. You can just preserve the card well with you.

    It is possible if I as a Filipino traveler can enter HK from Philippines and exit from Macau to philippines? Will there be any issues from Chinese immigration? Thanks

    • David :2016/5/27 23:44:00

      Mark, don’t worry! You can enter HK from Philippines and exit from Macau to Philippines. There won’t be any issues because Philippines passport holders can enjoy free entry to HK and Macau for a stay of 14 days and 30 days respectively.
