Filipina Traveling on Green Card

8 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Timeline

Perhaps someone can shed some light on my situation. If all goes without a problem, I will have a green card soon. Other topic sites on VJ confirmed that I am able to travel to both Mexico and Canada once I have a green card and with my Philippines passport.

Does anyone know if I can use my US green card to obtain a transit visa for long layovers going to and from Philippines in Nagoya and Narita in Japan?

Thanks.

Once you have your GC, you can travel anywhere in the world, at anytime. (except Iraq right now).

That makes you little bit special.

Note: You are still a citizen of the Philippines, you will need all visa's normally required by a Filipino to travel to the mentioned countries. However, having US Resident status will enable you to get a visa much easier.

I have traveled with before to Mexico,, and it did take a while for the local office to validate and issue a visa for the Philippine passport holder before we could travel to the interior.

Hope this is helpful.

We were told it would be no problem traveling back and forth between the Philippines, which it wasn't insofar as immigration was concerned.

But the airline gave us a lot of trouble despite having certified copies of every legal document pertaining to marriage and immigration. It was China Air.

Going there was no problem. It was coming back, at the Manila airport. Layovers in Japan and Korea were no problem, but we stayed in the transit areas of the airport overnight.

For our trip to Mexico,,, we drove over the border and the Mexican Agent issued the Visa. It took awhile I suspect because he did not know the rules regarding a Philippine passport and US immigrant Status. Reading another port. Looks like the procedure is similiar crossing the Canadian border. I would always check with the Consulate for the country you are wanting to travel to.

Has anyone actually used their Filipino passport and green card for a transit visa in Japan?
