Dear Colping, German, Dutch, American, Canadian and other foreign friends who come to us regularly. We always happy to have you in our center where you can have a real grasp of the life in Philippine province and emerce yourself in our apostolate.

Here we can share some useful information which will help you in your way to our country.

To safe your time and money we suggest you to book ticket from Manila to Naga ahead of coming to the Philippines. It will save you from the going out from the airport and spending a night outside of it which is fairly costly.

We will pick you up in Naga airport and bring you to our place. In cause of emergency you can see a small map and travel descriptions which you can find HERE.

Upon the arriving to the Philippines citizens of most European and North American countries will receive visa which is valid for 59 days. In case you would like to stay here longer you can prolong it here which will cost you around 4500 pesos (80.7 Eur 99.66$ US).

Coming here we recommend you to take your cell phones and laptops with you which will make easier your communication with home and friends.

The food in our center is pretty much simple. So if you have some food limitations (vegetarian, ulcer etc. ) please inform us ahead to avoid misunderstanding.

Take with you a anti mosquito spray or creme because the skin of foreigners is quite irresistible to the bites of local insects.
