REYKJAVIK, Iceland (The Adobo Chronicles, Berlin Bureau) – Until recently, Filipinos wanting to visit Iceland needed a travel visa. Not any more. The Nordic country has just announced that it has added the Philippines among countries whose citizens are not required to obtain a travel visa.
The announcement came just weeks after Iceland sponsored a U.N. Resolution calling for an investigation of President Rodrigo Duterte’s war on drugs which has allegedly killed thousands. Extra-judicially, that is.
There’s one caveat, though. Filipinos wanting to avail of this no-visa policiy must prove they or members of their family must prove they are EJK victims.
