Travel to the EU

Nationals of the European Union (EU) and Schengen Member States in need of consular assistance in the Philippines should contact the Embassies/ Consulates of their respective countries. 

The emergency contacts in EU/ Schengen Embassies in Manila are listed below. 

You are also invited to consult the travel advices available on the websites of those Embassies or their Ministries of Foreign Affairs, which are regularly updated.

EU citizens are entitled to seek help from the embassy or consulate of any other EU Member State if they find themselves in a situation where they need assistance outside the EU, with no embassy or consulate from their own Member State effectively in position to help them. For more information on Consular protection outside the EU click here

In the Philippines,  there are 14 EU Member States resident embassies. 

EU and Schengen Member States cooperate closely locally on consular protection matters through constant exchange of information, crisis preparedness and collective action when needed in case of consular crisis such as natural disasters. The EU Delegation assists actively this cooperation.

The Schengen Visa

1. What is the Schengen Visa?

There are currently 26 European countries in the Schengen Area, 22 of which are member states of the EU. These 26 countries share a common visa policy, meaning that there are no checks on the borders between them.

The 26 "Schengen States" are: Austria, Belgium, the Czech Republic, Denmark, Estonia, Finland, France, Germany, Greece, Hungary, Italy, Latvia, Lithuania, Luxembourg, Malta, the Netherlands, Poland, Portugal, Slovakia, Slovenia, Spain and Sweden – plus the four associated countries Norway, Iceland, Switzerland and Liechtenstein.

If a person receives a Schengen Visa for any of the above mentioned states, he/she will be able to travel freely to all of the 26 participating countries without the need for acquiring individual visas.

For more information on the Schengen visa policy click here.

2. What are the types of Schengen Visas?

There are two types of Schengen Visas. These are:

  • Short-stay visa (Type "C") This visa is issued for one, two or several visits. Its period of validity varies. It allows stays which do not exceed three months over a six-month period.
  • Airport transit visas (Type "A") This visa is required for nationals of certain third countries who are flying to another third country but need to make a transfer in an airport of a Schengen State.

You will find that non member states use the same two categories of visas.

3. Where can I get a Schengen Visa?

You can apply for a Schengen Visa at any participating country consulate in the Philippines.

If you plan on visiting more than one country in your travels in Europe, you should visit the embassy of the country that you plan on spending the most time in. In the event of there not being a particular country where you would spend a clear majority of you time, you should apply for the Schengen Visa at the embassy of the country you will travel to first.

4. What do I need in order to apply for a Schengen Visa?

The minimum requirements that need to be met in order to receive a Schengen Visa are as follows:

  • Complete and sign the visa application form. It is available for download and free.
  • Possess a valid passport with an expiry date that is later than your intended stay.
  • Specify the purpose of your trip.
  • Be able to show sufficient means for the time of stay.
  • Provide proof of travellers' insurance for the amount of at least 30,000 EUR.

5. What does it cost?

A typical short stay visa fee is 60 EUR. There are however circumstances where this fee can be reduced or waived.

No fees can be charged for third country nationals who are family members of an EU citizen or of a national of the EEA Agreement, who exercises his/her right of free movement.

In addition, fees are waived for children under six years of age, school pupils, post graduate students and accompanying teachers who undertake trips for the purpose of study or educational training and for researchers carrying out scientific research as defined in Recommendation 2005/761/EC.

For more detailed information you should contact the embassy of the destination of your choice. For a listing of EU country embassies in the region follow the "Embassies" link on the navigation bar.

Erasmus+ is the European Union’s programme for education, training, youth and sport. Between 2014 and 2020, it will provide opportunities for four million people to study, train and gain life experience abroad.

Erasmus+ replaces a number of older programmes, including an international exchange programme called Erasmus Mundus.

See the Erasmus+ web portal’s Resources section for information about linguistic support, documents for applicants and the management of proposals.

The European Documentation Centre (EDC), covering an area of roughly 300 sqm., is currently located at the ground floor of the De La Salle University Library, Philippines. It was conceived as a project of the European Commission in collaboration with the European Studies Consortium of the Philippines.

The European Studies Consortium composed of De La Salle University (DLSU), Ateneo de Manila University (ADMU), and the University of the Philippines (UP), signed a Memorandum of Understanding with the European Commission (EC) to promote European studies among a number of high level academic institutions in the Philippines, and to reach out to the Philippine business community in creating an improved awareness of the EU as a business partner. It started work in June 1997 but was formally inaugurated on June 25, 1998.

The official status as a documentation centre for the EDC was granted in January 1998.
