*Visa on arrival
SAR – Special Administrative Region (of China)

Last November 2017, Taiwan allowed Filipinos to travel there visa-free. The visa-free privilege, which runs until July 31, 2018, for Filipinos covers stays of up to 14 days of activities like tourism, business, and attending events.

Meanwhile, Japan is still the most powerful passport, with visa-free access to 189 countries. The lowest ranked passports globally are Iraq and Afghanistan with visa-free access to 30 countries.

But before you decide which visa-free country you should visit next, make sure that you get travel insurance to cover unexpected (and unwanted!) expenses because of travel inconveniences and mishaps.
