Pope Francis' visit to the Philippines (Filipino: Pagbisita ni Papa Francisco sa Pilipinas) was a Apostolic and state visit of Pope Francis in the country from January 15 to 19, 2015. Francis is the third pontiff to visit the Philippines after Popes Paul VI and John Paul II. His visit marked the first visit of a pope to the Philippines in the 21st century with the last visit by a pope in the Philippines by Pope John Paul II in 1995.

The pope visited Manila, plus Tacloban and Palo, Leyte, to pay a visit to the victims of Typhoon Haiyan (Yolanda). Pope Francis became the second pope to go beyond Manila during a papal visit to the Philippines, after Pope John Paul II who visited Cebu, Davao, Bacolod, Iloilo, Legazpi, Bataan, and Baguio, alongside Manila from February 17 to 22, 1981. The Filipinos nicknamed him Lolo Kiko ("Grandpa Francis") as a term of endearment, which he commended. Pope Francis' visit to the Philippines had become the largest papal event in history with around 6-7 million attended his final mass at Luneta surpassing the then largest papal event at World Youth Day 1995 in the same venue 20 years earlier.

The theme of Pope Francis' 2015 papal visit is "Mercy and Compassion" (Filipino: Habag at Malasakit).

Viewing hubs that would cover Pope Francis'5-day itinerary include PLDT SSSCs in SM mall such as SM Sta Mesa, SM Southmall in Laspinas, SM North Edsa in Quezon City and SM Marilao Bulacan.
