DFA suspends e-visa system in China

/ 05:10 AM December 01, 2023

The operations of the Philippine e-Visa system in China have been temporarily suspended until further notice, the Department of Foreign Affairs (DFA) announced on Thursday.

It advised visa applicants in China to contact the nearest Philippine embassy or consulate for further inquiries.

The DFA provided no explanation for the suspension, but the move came weeks after Justice Secretary Jesus Crispin Remulla said he would recommend to President Marcos to remove it from the DFA and contract the private supplier Visa Facilitation Services Global, stressing that the service provider has more efficient ways of validating information submitted by visa applicants. —TINA G.
