Consular issues
Dear all, (Cecilia Fernandes)

Any consular issues related to Portuguese citizens are dealt with by the Portuguese Embassy in Jakarta, Indonesia. None of the honorary consuls in the Philippines have any powers whatsoever to deal with any issues, not even for assistance to Portuguese citizens visiting or living in the country.

Philippines Tourist Visa Requirements for Portuguese Citizens

Portuguese citizens do not need a visa to visit Philippines. Visa exemption or visa-free access applies to Portugal. You are allowed to stay for up to 21 days. Passports must be valid for at least 6 months on the date of entry.

Most countries issue visas through embassies, visa on arrival offices or electronic visa (e-Visa) providers. The cost, processing time, requirements and types of visa issued vary.

It is possible to stay longer than 21 days without leaving the country. You can do it by applying for a visa extension or getting a visa allowing a stay of more than 21 days.

An alternative to the visa extension is a visa run, leaving and re-entering the country for a further stay of 21 days. You are given another 21 days every time you enter Philippines.

We advise you not to overstay your visit at all costs. If you cannot avoid an overstay, however, you will most likely be fined an amount that costs more than a visa extension, visa run or new visa. In most cases, you will not be thrown in jail.

Passport Validation
A portuguese citizen that goes to Philippines need to have his passport valid for more than 6 months following the departure or it accepted just more than 3 months?

This is specially to Bryan.
Don't reply to it!!!
It is a scam and they will try to rip you off.
Unfortunately this is a scam used to get money out of unaware people.
The process to employment in Portugual (or any other EU country) isn't that straight forward as you can think.
You SHOULD contact the portuguese authorities and check what are the requirements, ideally if you're a Filipino, contact the Filipino embassy in Lisbon, they are very helpful and will tell you all you need to know.

Honorary Portuguese Consul in Philippines
Dear all,

I'm in the process to get all the documents to get married with a Filipino citizen.
First, be aware that it is very complicated and time consuming!!
Second, the Honorary Consuls in Manila and Cebu are just representative figures and have no powers whatsoever. Kind like the Queen in the UK :-P
Lucky me I have a fabulous team in the Portuguese Consulate in Manchester and they have been the most helpful bunch.
The solution that we found for all the documents is to liaise with the Filipino embassy in Lisbon. This is simply because they know how the Portuguese documents look like and they can authenticate them fairly easy as long they are authenticated by the Portuguese Foreign affairs office (Ministério dos Negocios Estrangeiros).
Regarding those of you who wish to visit Portugal, you should go to (or contact for guidance) the Portuguese embassy in Jakarta as they are the ones dealing with any issues in the Philippines.
If you want some more detailed information just email me at husoi at hotmail.co.uk I will try to help if I can.
