Stay Visa

Stay visas are a great option for foreign nationals looking to work and invest in the Philippines, or simply visit. We offer Work Visas, Invest Visas, and Stay Visas that are perfect for any situation.

Stay Visas allow foreign nationals who already have a Work Visa or Invest Visa to stay in the Philippines longer than they would under normal circumstances – this mostly caters to foreign nationals who would want to retire and live in the Philippines with either their dependents of just themselves permanently — you can extend your Stay Visa depending on the type you apply for!
