Filipino Virtual Assistants Salary Guide – 2019 Update

It’s been a few years since we last release a salary guide and I have to agree, a lot has changed since then.

Compared to 2018, there’s been a slight increase in the starting salaries for Filipino virtual assistants. There are several reasons for this.

There’s  inflation and the rising cost of goods to consider. The Philippines peso experienced high inflation over the past year and the exchange rate experienced major fluctuations over the past year. What your VA can buy with P500 two years ago is a lot less than what it could but today.

There are more training opportunities now for virtual assistants than ever before. Training facilities and programs have been popping up all over the country. So newbies now have more skills than they did around 5 years ago. More virtual assistants are also choosing to specialize, allowing them to provide more customized services to business.

Virtual assistant salaries will vary according to the skills they have and their experience. The more technical your skill set is, the higher your pay will be.
