Work Permits in the Philippines

A Work Permit is the official, legal, and authoritative document that grants a non-citizen the right to engage in gainful employment in the Philippines. Through a work permit, foreign professionals can practice their profession in the Philippines through reciprocal immigration agreements with the home country. Whether a foreign national is coming to the Philippines for temporary or long-term assignments, or whether he or she is about to or has commenced work, a particular valid work permit must be secured.
