Filipinos are Now Allowed to Go on Non-Essential Travel

Missed traveling? Well, your wanderlust can now be satiated after the administration has officially lifted its ban on non-essential travel outside of the Philippines.

Filipinos can now begin traveling starting October 21 as long as the following are presented prior to leaving the country: confirmed roundtrip tickets, travel and health insurance, accomplished immigration declaration form acknowledging the health risks involved, and a negative Antigen result 24 hours before the flight. They must also follow the guidelines set by the anti-coronavirus task force of the Philippines for returning overseas workers.

It was back in July when the government first lifted the ban on local and international travel but shortly suspended it once more.

Presidential Spokesperson Harry Roque has also announced that citizens between 15 to 65 years old are now allowed to go out of their homes and that travel between areas under GCQ and MGCQ is permitted.
