Philippine passport(travel restriction with and without)

5 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

I am a bit confused of the difference having restriction of a passport and no restriction stated in the passport. Because i saw someone's renewed passport that has no restriction anymore... would that cause some problem in the future? Mine has restriction anyway.

A new regulation states that all new passports issued after July 2011 shall no longer bear this limitation, and the stamp on existing passports will become void. Although the community will still be advised not to travel to Iraq, those wanting to travel for employment and other purposes will be able to do so at their own risk, according to an official at the Philippines Embassy.

"The practice of stamping passports will be discontinued," he said. "Newly issued passports will not bear the stamp and holders will not be subject to the travel limitation. However, the travel advisory will remain in place.

In a statement, the Philipines government clarified, "The discontinuation of the practice is not tantamount to allowing travel to Iraq for employment and other purposes. There are countries in which deployment bans have been imposed, such as Nigeria, Lebanon, Afghanistan and Jordan, and Philippine passports do not reflect these.”

It added that it will continue to adhere to the labour and employment policies against the deployment of overseas Filipino workers to Iraq. The travel ban had been in place since 2004, when two truck drivers from the Philippines were kidnapped in Iraq.
