Ilocos Sur to welcome tourists from Luzon starting mid-November

Ilocos Sur will soon open its borders to welcome tourists from Luzon. According to the Department of Tourism (DOT), the province will be open to all Luzon residents starting November 15.

In a statement last Sunday, the DOT said that they will start welcoming tourists “once all systems and health and safety measures are in place.”

“The DOT also lauded Governor Singson’s initiative to give back jobs to the tourism workforce from the kutcheros or carriage drivers to the waiters, the souvenir shops, to the tour guides through the slow but sure reopening of the province,” the statement also read.

Prior to welcoming tourists from other parts of Luzon, Ilocos Sur has welcomed tourists through the Ridge and Reef travel corridor initiative. They welcomed tourists from Baguio City, La Union, Pangasinan, and Ilocos Norte.
