In a move to further increase visitor arrivals to the Marianas Islands from key source markets, and to support the new PAL Express non-stop flights between Manila and Saipan, the Marianas Visitors Authority (MVA) has opened its representative office in the Philippines.
The office will be operated by AVIAREPS which also represent MVA in Japan, Korea, China and Taiwan. It will carry out trade marketing, public relations, and consumer promotions.
The Northern Mariana Islands of Saipan, Tinian, and Rota are a chain of idyllic islands in the West Pacific, offering fun and adventure activities. Just three hours from most cities in Japan, and 4 hours from Asia and Australia. Adventurous travelers from Asia, Australia, and Europe looking for new travel discoveries will find them in the Mariana Islands.
The Philippines is one of the rapidly growing Asian markets for the Northern Marianas and represents an opportunity to further diversify the visitor base, strengthened by the sentimental ties between people of the Mariana Islands and the Philippines. The Mariana Islands looks forward to developing travel partnerships to increase the number of visitors from the Philippines.
Tour packages for Mariana Islands are offered by Luxus Pacific Travel and Tours Manila office. Presently, visitors to the islands need a US visa; but, there is a move to exempt Filipinos from the visa requirement along with 13 other countries.
