It is the prerogative of every country to impose immigration laws and determine who is allowed to enter. There are a few countries authorizing Filipinos to enter their territories without the need for entry visas, and Suriname is one of them, provided that the purpose of the trip is touristic. Filipino tourists can stay in Suriname for up to 90 days. Upon arrival, Filipinos will be asked to present a passport and return or onward tickets. The passport must be valid for at least 6 months beyond the duration of stay in Suriname, and must have at least 2 blank pages.
Extensions of stay can be applied for at the Aliens Registration Office. However, Filipinos intending to remain in Suriname for more than 3 months must apply for Authorization for Temporary Stay (MVK) at embassies or consulates 3 months before the planned arrival in Suriname.
Proof of vaccination against yellow fever is required if the Filipino visitor is arriving in Suriname from Guyana, French Guiana or Brazil.
