An Affidavit of Support with Undertaking is a document wherein a person (the "affiant") takes an oath that they will pay for all the travel expenses, including subsistence and accommodations, of another person (the "traveler"). It is a travel document that is required to exit the Philippines if a Filipino traveler does not have the financial capacity to support their own travel. It is not always asked for but it is better to be ready with one.
This document can be used either if the affiant is already residing in another country and is inviting the traveler to visit them or if the affiant is travelling with the affiant.
In an Affidavit of Support with Undertaking, it is important to show the financial capacity of the affiant so it's better to include any documents evidencing the financial capacity of the affiant such as bank statements or a salary verification from the affiant's employer. It's also better to have other supporting documents, such as proof of relationship, ready when presenting the Affidavit of Support with Undertaking.
Take note that having an Affidavit of Support with Undertaking does not guarantee that the traveler will be cleared for departure.
If the traveler is a minor (below 18 years old) and is traveling alone or with someone who is not their parent, an Affidavit of Consent and Support should be used.
How to use this document
The user should enter all the information required to complete the document. Once completed, the affiant should review the document.
If the affiant is in the Philippines, the affiant should personally appear before a notary public with a valid I.D. to swear an oath to the truth of the contents of the document and then sign the same.
If the affiant is a Filipino outside the Philippines, the affiant can choose either to personally appear in the Philippine Embassy or Philippine General Consulate with a valid I.D. or have the same notarized at a local notary public. If the document will be notarized in a local notary public, the same should be apostilled, if their country is part of the Apostille Convention, or authenticated by the proper authorities of their country and then authenticated by the Philippine Embassy or consul, if their country is not part of the Apostille Convention.
If the affiant is not a Filipino outside the Philippines, the affiant should go to a local notary public and, once notarized, have the same apostilled, if their country is part of the Apostille Convention, or authenticated by the proper authorities of their country and then authenticated by the Philippine Embassy or consul, if their country is not part of the Apostille Convention.
Once notarized, the document should be given to the traveler so they can present the same to travel authorities when exiting the Philippines, if required.
The Inter-Agency Council Against Trafficking (IACAT) Revised Guidelines on Departure Formalities for International-Bound Passengers (Memorandum No. 036 dated 15 June 2015) specifies the requirements for departures for international-bound passengers, including the contents of the Affidavit of Support with Undertaking.
