Cagayan Economic Zone Authority (CEZA) Visas

A Cagayan Economic Zone Authority (CEZA) visa is a multiple entry visa issued to foreign nationals employed by enterprises registered under the Cagayan Special Economic Zone and Freeport.

The CEZA grants the following visas:

  • CEZA Working Visa
  • CEZA Investor’s Resident Visa
  • CEZA Dependent Visa

A CEZA Working Visa (CWV) is a temporary working and residency visa with a validity of two years for new CWV holders and is renewed every year thereafter. This visa allows the foreign national entry to all Philippine ports of entry. The CEZA visas are company specific, thus, the company and place of work of the visa holder must still exist in order to validate the use of the visa.
