NON-FILIPINOS MAY NOW TRAVEL TO THE PHILIPPINES (UNDER CERTAIN GOVERNMENT CONDITIONS)  

 

The Philippine government is now allowing the entry of certain foreign nationals into the Philippines under certain conditions set by previous resolutions of the Government's Inter-Agency Task Force on COVID-19 (IATF).

 

Effective May 1, foreign nationals may now be carried on PAL flights to the Philippines, provided they: 

 

- Must have a valid and existing visa at the time of entry, unless they qualify for visa-free travel under the Balikbayan Program set by Republic Act No. 6768;

 

- Must have a pre-booked accommodation for at least seven (7) nights in an accredited quarantine hotel or facility, and they must subject to COVID-19 testing at the quarantine hotel / facility on the sixth (6th) day from the date of arrival;

 

However, each Philippine airport continues to impose a daily maximum number of allowed international arriving passengers, in line with governmental restrictions. 

 

Also allowed to travel to the Philippines are: 

 

- returning or repatriated OFWs and other Returning Overseas Filipinos (ROFs) returning to their places of residence

- members of the diplomatic community

- duly-authorized humanitarian assistance actors

- persons traveling for medical/humanitarian reasons

 

If you were unable to take your flight due to travel restrictions or limitations, you may:

 

1. Convert your ticket to a Travel Voucher (request until June 30, 2021);

 

2. Avail of unlimited rebooking (no rebooking fee) until December 31, 2021. If you will be completing your travel in the same booking class by June 30, 2021 (or ticket validity, whichever comes first), there will be no fare difference charge;

 

3. Refund your ticket without penalties.

 

You may request any of the options via the myPAL Request Hub at https://mypal.vip/url/RequestHub.

 

If your flight is not affected by cancellations or travel ban, you can make voluntary changes to your flight following the new No-Worry Flight Fare Brand. All changes shall be made within ticket validity and applicable change fees shall be assessed on the fare conditions of the route. Please visit https://bit.ly/PALPassengerOptions
