Travel Advisory No. 223

 

FILIPINOS RETURNING FROM 'RED LIST' COUNTRIES ALLOWED TO ENTER PH

 

To our valued passengers:

 

We wish to reiterate the following guidelines enforced by the Philippine governmental Inter-Agency Task Force (IATF):

 -- Passengers who have been to, or are originating from, a 'Red List' country within the last 14 days will be ALLOWED TO ENTER THE PHILIPPINES, provided that they are RETURNING FILIPINOS traveling on government-initiated, non-government-initiated, and Bayanihan repatriation flights.

 

 -- Returning Filipinos must undergo a fourteen (14)-day quarantine period (10 days at quarantine hotels/facilities plus home quarantine for the next days until completion). They will have to undergo an RT-PCR test on the seventh day (the date of arrival being the first day).

 

 -- Passengers who merely transited via a 'Red List' country (i.e., stopover at the airport only without immigration admission into a red list country) will not be deemed as having been to this 'Red List' country. Such passengers will need to present their ticket or boarding pass upon arrival to the Philippine Immigration officials.

 

From the period November 16 to 30, 2021, only Faroe Islands and The Netherlands respectively are included in the list of 'Red List' countries.

 

To be clear: Returning Filipinos who originate from a green or yellow listed country but only transit via Amsterdam airport (airport layover, no entry into the Netherlands) will be accepted for travel to the Philippines. This includes Filipinos flying via Amsterdam and Japan with final leg on a PAL Japan-Manila flight.  

 

We will continue to monitor and comply with any new updates from the IATF and immigration authorities in the coming days.

Thank you.
