Note: An Overseas Filipino Worker or OFW is a person from the Philippines who is living and working in another country, typically on a temporary basis. This includes land-based OFWs and seafarers/sea-based OFWs. Families traveling together with at least one OFW will be considered all OFWs. Non-OFWs refer to Returning Overseas Filipinos (non-OFW students, non-OFW Balikbayan, non-OFW tourist, etc.), spouse and children of Filipinos, diplomats, foreign officials accredited by the Philippines, and eligible non-Filipino/foreign citizens.

In compliance with Philippine regulations, the Inter-Agency Task Force on the management of Emerging Infectious Diseases (IATF-EID) has revised the arrival and quarantine protocols for passengers arriving in the Philippines. Eligible travelers are required to undergo a facility-based quarantine while waiting for their RT-PCR test administered on day six (6). Day one (1) starts on the day of the passenger’s arrival.


1. Fill out the Health Declaration Card, Case Investigation Form, and the Affidavit of Undertaking. Click on each form to download a copy:

2. For non-OFWs and foreign nationals, ensure to have a confirmed booking at a hotel accredited by Tourism and Health Agencies and for at least 6 nights. Passengers arriving before hotel standard check-in times are encouraged to book an additional night to ensure room availability. You must stay at your booked hotel for your scheduled test and until  the test result is sent and a BOQ medical certificate is issued. Please click here for the list of DOH-Inspected hotels in Clark.


3. During your flight, accomplish the Arrival Card.


4. At the BOQ Desk, submit the Health Declaration Card to the Bureau of Quarantine Personnel.

5. For non-OFWs and non-Filipinos, proceed to Philippine Airport Diagnostic Laboratory (PADLab) desk for CIF verification and payment (Php 4,000.00).
6. Proceed to your designated desk for your hotel verification and assignment:
  • For OFWs, proceed to the Overseas Workers Welfare Administration (OWWA) Desk 
  • For non-OFWs and foreign nationals, proceed to the DOT Desk.

7. Clear with Immigration and submit the Arrival Card.

8. Claim your baggage at the designated carousel and clear with Customs Check.

9. Proceed to your quarantine hotel.
  • For OFWs, a shuttle/bus provided by OWWA will take you to your assigned hotel.
  • For non-OFWs and foreign nationals, only pre-arranged airport-hotel transfer services or airport taxis are allowed to take you to your assigned hotel.


10. Check in at your hotel and wait for your scheduled test, which is on day 6 of your quarantine stay. Wait for an e-mail of your swab test result, which you will receive in 24- 48 hours.

Day 1 starts on the day you arrive in the Philippines. If you develop COVID-19 symptoms (e.g., dry cough, shortness of breath, loss of taste and/or smell, etc.) at any time before your scheduled test, please inform the hotel you are staying in so a medical or BOQ officer can assess and check up on you immediately.

11. For OFWs, your accommodation and food during your stay will be shouldered by the Philippine government. For non-OFWs, your accommodation and food during your stay will be at your own expense. Delivery of food and other essentials to your room are subject to the rules and regulations of the hotel.


12. If you test positive, the Bureau of Quarantine will transfer you to a designated hospital for further medical management.
If you test negative, the Bureau of Quarantine will send you your test result together with a Medical Clearance Certificate. Present this together with your test result for clearance from your hotel.

13. You may call your relatives or respective Local Government Units to pick you up at your hotel or arrange your own transportation.
  • For Land-Based OFWs, you may coordinate with OWWA or use the OWWA Uwian Na portal for further transportation needs.
  • For Sea-Based OFWs, you may coordinate with your Local Manning Agency (LMA) for further transportation needs.
  • For non-OFWs and foreign nationals, if your ticket’s original destination is in Manila or outside Clark, Philippine Airlines shall accommodate you on a shuttle/bus that will take you to NAIA Terminal 2. Please coordinate with your hotel so that they can notify us that you are ready to be transferred to Manila.

You may also wish to be accommodated on the next flight available to your final point of arrival (e.g., CRK-DVO). Call our Reservations Hotline at +6328855-8888 (8AM to 8PM) for changes on connecting flight/s.

To avoid inconvenience, please prepare the PSC in Philippine Peso currency prior to check-in in Clark. For OFWs, the airport terminal fee shall be shouldered by OWWA or your LMAs.
