Bring Home A Friend to the Philippines

Bring Home A Friend to the Philippines

The Philippine Consulate General Vancouver, in partnership with the Philippine Department of Tourism San Francisco, is inviting Filipinos to Bring Home A Friend (BHAF), a new travel program launched this month.

Officially launched on Nov. 4 at the Coast Coal Harbor Hotel in Vancouver, BHAF is a referral incentive program that aims to encourage both Filipinos abroad and expatriates living in the Philippines to invite their international friends to come and visit the country. The program runs until April 15, 2018.

To join, the sponsor can register online at and invite his/her friends through the website. A sponsor must be 18 years of age and above, a Filipino dual citizen living in the Philippines or abroad as residents or overseas contract workers, or an expatriate living in the Philippines permanently or temporarily for a minimum of six months prior to the program period.

An invitee can be anyone holding a foreign passport or dual citizenship living abroad for a minimum of six months prior to the program period and has traveled to the Philippines during the specified program period.

Three sponsors and their invitees will also have the chance to win a selection of big prizes through an electronic raffle draw in April 2018. Sponsors have a chance to win a Le Grand condominium unit in Eastwood, Philippines, or a brand-new Toyota Vios, Duty Free gift certificate worth 200,000 pesos (approx. 3,800-4000 USD). Invitees can win two roundtrip tickets and 6-days/5-nights’ accommodation in Palawan, two roundtrip tickets and 5-days/4-nights’ accommodation in Cebu, or two roundtrip tickets 5-days/4-nights’ accommodation in Davao.
