What is IATA Travel Pass?

The IATA Travel Pass is a digital health app that validates and authenticates all country regulations regarding COVID-19 passenger travel requirements. It aims to establish and regain the confidence in travel through an accessible digital platform.

The IATA Travel Pass app allows passengers to:
  • Create a digital version of their biometric passport
  • Find information on travel, testing and vaccine requirements of their destination, powered by IATA Timatic
  • Access a global registry of testing centers and laboratories at their departure and/or arrival location that can conduct COVID-19 tests in accordance with the type of test required for their travel
  • Receive digital copies of their verified test result, and share these with relevant authorities to facilitate travel

I can’t set up my digital passport. Can I still complete the trial?

Setting up your digital passport is a requirement for you to complete the trial process. Please ensure that you remove your phone and passport cases during the scan. If the NFC scan fails, please try again after ten minutes.  The location of the NFC chip may be different depending on your device.

If the scan is successful and the passport is not yet added, it may be due to a mismatch of your passport photo and your profile photo in the app. Please uninstall and reinstall the application to upload a new profile photo. Ensure that glasses and head coverings are removed.

Why is my flight not in the options?

Only a select number of flights and dates are available for the trial. Please ensure that your booking belongs to the list of flights found in this page. Please note that due to changing regulations in the Philippines, the status of your flights may be changed. Check this page regularly for updates on the list of eligible flights.

Please check your test result that was sent via email and contact our Testing Facility Hotlines at +639685539214 (Smart) or +639062613074 (Globe).
