I recently travelled to a country with known COVID-19 cases. What should I do?
Please be guided by the below protocols for Filipinos arriving from abroad:
Fully vaccinated passport holders from non-visa required countries, HK and Macau SAR passport holders (for stay period not exceeding 14 days), diplomatic and official/service passports with existing visa waiver agreements, and foreign nationals with valid visas shall be allowed entry into the Philippines provided they:
(1) Are holders of passports valid for at least six (6) months at the time of arrival;
(2) Have a return or outbound ticket to their country of origin or next country of destination;
(3) Have any of the following proofs of vaccination against COVID-19 recognized under existing IATF regulations: (i) World Health Organization International Certificates of Vaccination and Prophylaxis; (ii) VaxCertPH; or (iii) National/state digital certificate of the foreign government which has accepted VaxCertPH under a reciprocal arrangement (unless otherwise permitted by the IATF); and
(4) Update: Foreign nationals aged 18 and above who have received primary series COVID-19 vaccine and at least one (1) COVID-19 booster shot, foreign nationals aged 12 to 17 who are fully vaccinated with primary series COVID-19 vaccine; and foreign nationals below 12 years old, regardless of vaccination status, accompanied by parent/guardian who have received a complete primary series and one booster shot NO LONGER need to present a pre-departure RT-PCR/ART test. Those who do not belong to any of the mentioned categories shall present a negative Reverse Transcription – Polymerase Chain Reaction (RT-PCR) test taken within forty-eight hours (48hrs) or laboratory-administered antigen/ART test taken 24 hours prior to departure from the country of origin
(5) Have filled out the OneHealthPass Health Declaration Form.
Prior to Departure
While Inflight: Fill out the Arrival Card and Customs Declaration Form provided by the flight attendant.
Once admitted into the country, fully vaccinated foreign nationals are no longer required to observe mandatory facility quarantine but shall self-monitor for any COVID-19 signs and symptoms for seven (7) days, with Day 1 as the date of arrival in the Philippines. They are required to report to the local government unit (LGU) of their destination should they manifest any symptoms.
Those who fail to fully comply with the conditions set forth shall be denied admission and shall be subject to appropriate exclusion proceedings.
