5 Reasons Why Philippines Is Best Virtual Assistant Source
Map of Phillipines


You’ve probably heard of the Philippines as a great place to source virtual assistants. But what makes it such a great country for finding good VAs? In this article, I’ll share with you five reasons why the Philippines is my favorite country to source VAs from:

Highly-educated workforce.

Unlike other countries, Filipinos are highly educated. With a literacy rate of more than 90%, it is no wonder why they are excellent at learning and picking up new skills. This means that Filipino virtual assistants can be trained to handle complex tasks with ease!

Excellent quality of work.

You should be prepared to find a VA that has excellent quality of work. In the Philippines, there is a high standard for quality and it’s easy to find someone who can meet your needs.

The Philippines has a strong work ethic, so you’re unlikely to have any issues with VAs being unproductive or unreliable.

Strong work ethic.

Filipinos are known for their strong work ethic. In fact, it’s one of the reasons why we are considered to be one of the best virtual assistants in Asia. Our workforce is highly motivated and will stay late if needed to get a job done, no matter how tedious or monotonous it may be. They have an incredible work ethic, which makes them perfect for clients who need someone who will get the job done quickly but with excellence.

Good command of the English language.

If you’re looking to hire a virtual assistant from the Philippines, then it’s essential that they have a good command of the English language. That is because most of your clients will be from the United States and other parts of North America.

Filipinos are exposed to the English language at an early age. As such, they speak English fluently. Many VAs in my team can converse with me and my clients without any problem whatsoever!

Cultural similarities.

In the Philippines, you can easily find virtual assistants who speak English fluently. This is because over half of the country’s population speaks English as a second language, which makes it easier to communicate with them.

In addition, Filipinos are known for their strong work ethic and dedication to their jobs. They’re also known to be highly intelligent and have an above average education level compared to other countries in Southeast Asia.

The Philippines is a great place to find VAs because they are easy to train, friendly, well-educated, and hard workers on top of all of that!

The VAs there have the ability to multitask and work with many clients at once. It’s not uncommon for them to have more than one client at a time. They’re also able to learn new things quickly as long as they have access to instructions or videos online. Unlike other countries in Asia where English isn’t the first language (e.g., China), most Filipinos speak fluent English because it’s taught throughout their education system starting in grade school. Due to this fact alone makes training less difficult for both you and your VA(s).


We hope that you’re excited to start building your own team of Virtual Assistants. This is a great opportunity for anyone who has been looking to expand their business while also taking advantage of what the Philippines has to offer. We’re confident that you will be pleased with this decision, and know that you will have success going forward!
