Fly to PH for the holidays! The country reopens tourism to 44 countries, territories, or foreign jurisdictions in the Philippines’ “green” list.

STARTING December 1, fully vaccinated nationals coming from non-visa-required “green” countries will be allowed to enter the Philippines.

In a press briefing, acting presidential spokesperson and Cabinet Secretary Karlo Nograles announced Resolution No. 150-A of the Inter-Agency Task Force for the Management of Emerging Infectious Diseases.

Under the new policy, foreigners who wish to visit the Philippines must have passports valid for at least six months at the time of arrival as well as outbound tickets to their country of origin or next destination.

“Right now the IATF is just prepared to release a resolution that says up to December 15 pero ‘pag makita naman po natin na maganda ang implementation nito, ie-extend natin ang dates,” he said.

Also, among the requirements is proof of vaccination from World Health Organization's International Certificates of Vaccination and Prophylaxis, VaXCertPH, and the digital vaccination certificates issued by foreign governments which accepted VaxCertPH.

For travelers coming from non-visa countries, a negative RT-PCR test taken within 72 hours prior to departure from the country of origin is required.

Finally, the traveler should have stayed exclusively in green countries, territories, or jurisdictions tagged as low risk for Covid-19 for 14 days.

Should the fully vaccinated individual fail to comply with the requirements, they shall be made to follow the protocols for unvaccinated individuals coming from green list countries.

The protocols include facility-based quarantine until the release of a negative RT-PCR test taken on their fifth day in the Philippines and self-monitor until their 14th day of staying in the country.
