Visa Requirements for Filipino Citizens

I have been scrapping and scrapping over informations from different sites to gather so far the paper work Filipino Citizens need to do when it comes to visiting different countries all over the world. I even contributed that information to one of the most reliable site, but some people just don't know how to appreciate and he just deleted everything I typed for hours and hours.

Enough with the rant. So instead of editing everything all over again, I'll just post this up here. Hehe Atleast we have a little fresh air from the vigorous US and European visa applications.
