  • Visa 101 for Family Travel

    Visa applications shouldn’t discourage families from traveling to nearby countries. In fact, applying for visas to Asian countries such as Japan, Korea and China can be fairly easy – especially with today’s fast communication and quick access to information.

  • Read on about travel blogs and securing visa requirements.


    Make the blogging rounds

    If completing necessary requirements become a hurdle, look for active bloggers who willingly give helpful advice covering both the basics and the nitty-gritty details.

    Travel bloggers who are already familiar with embassy protocols remind applicants not to wear headbands, jewelries, caps and hats when getting your passport photo taken because you need to have a full-face front view. More importantly, they also advice you to glue the photo on the application form because there are embassies that do not accept stapled or scanned photos.

    Bloggers also advise travelers to submit photocopies of certain documents—not counting the NSO-certified ones—since these won’t be returned to you. They also highly suggest first-time applicants to provide supporting documents, such as a photocopy of the return ticket or a bank certificate, aside from the ones required by the embassy. Letting them know you have a valid visa to another country such as the United States, Canada, United Kingdom, Australia or New Zealand would make you an even better candidate. Having these files can make your visa application process possibly faster – even as fast as three days.

    Once you’ve completed and reviewed your documents, finding the most reliable travel agency is the next step. Friends who’ve undergone a visa application through travel agencies, or bloggers with detailed lists of expenses, can give their recommendations.

    Find the right agency for you, submit your complete requirements and wait for the feedback.
