The Philippines will no longer stamp its visas on Chinese passports with a map of disputed areas in the South China Sea also called West Philippine Seas. The move protests the inclusion of the 9-dash line map in the passport which covers areas claimed by China, Taiwan, Vietnam, Brunei, Malaysia and the Philippines. DFA says the Philippines will stamp the visas on a separate visa application form.  Senator Miriam Santiago wants Chinese citizens carrying the passports barred from entering the Philippines.
