People who want to travel to another country or territory will often be required to get a visa before their planned trip. It would be wise to check with the embassy or consulate of the country they would like to go to and check if there are any special documents or requirements that would need to be submitted in order to be given a visa or be given permission to travel to that country. There are some countries which do not ask particular nationalities or passport holders of other countries to get a visa in order to be permitted to enter their territory.
Philippine passport holders can travel to the Co-operative Republic of Guyana if they have a valid passport and a Guyanese visa. A visa is required for people who will go to Guyana as tourists or on business trips. The duration of the visa that will be given will depend on the length of stay they applied for.
In order for a Philippine passport holder to obtain a visa to Guyana, they must apply for it through the Guyanese Consulate in Japan. They can send their visa application by registered mail. If they do get an approved visa to travel to Guyana, this does not give them a guarantee that they will be permitted to enter the country once they arrive there. They will still need to pass the scrutiny of Guyanese Immigration officials. Once in Guyana, travelers must remember to comply with local laws and not overstay the permitted time given to them to stay in Guyana. They will be arrested and deported if caught.
