Travel Advisory


25 Jun 2020


To all our passengers flying to the Philippines:

If your flight is arriving in CEBU, please book your hotel accommodation in advance, prior to departure from your current location. You may choose from the list of hotels accredited by the Philippine health authorities. Please click this link for the list as of June 18.
(The authorities will add more hotels to the list as they continue with their inspection and accreditation process. Please check for further updates.)

We suggest that you book your hotel for at least two (2) nights, in line with the expected 24 to 48 hours processing time to receive the COVID test results (to be administered upon arrival at Cebu Mactan airport).

Please show a copy of your hotel reservation as you check in for your PAL flight to the Philippines.

These requirements are in line with the testing and quarantine procedures mandated for all international arriving travelers by the Philippine Government, as conducted by the health authorities.  Please note travelers will bear the cost for the COVID tests and the quarantine hotel, whether the tests and quarantine take place in Cebu or Manila (except that, for Overseas Filipino Workers - OFWs, the government will shoulder the cost of tests and accommodation).

Thank you.
