WHAT TO EXPECT WHEN YOU ARRIVE IN CEBU

You will undergo the required COVID testing in Cebu rather than in Manila, and quarantine at a Cebu hotel accredited by the Department of Health (DOH).  Once you receive a negative test result, PAL will fly you from Cebu to Manila at no extra charge.  Usually, test results are issued within 24 to 48 hours, though this is not guaranteed.


Please note that the cost for the COVID tests and the quarantine hotel will be borne by the traveler, whether the tests and quarantine take place in Cebu or Manila.


BOOK YOUR HOTEL IN ADVANCE


IMPORTANT:  Please book your Cebu hotel accommodation prior to your departure from Los Angeles. You may choose from this list of DOH-accredited hotels (please click this link for the updated list).  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.

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


CEBU AIRPORT & PROVINCE ON GCQ STATUS

Cebu airport, Mactan Island and most of the province of Cebu are presently under a more relaxed GCQ or General Community Quarantine status; this includes the many accredited hotels on Mactan Island. Only Cebu City proper has been classified under the stricter ECQ or Enhanced Community Quarantine status.


PLEASE NOTE:


This new option to land in Cebu is one solution (to the quarantine arrival limitations) that we are working on with our airport and health authorities, so that we can serve the thousands of travelers who have urgent and essential reasons to travel home to the Philippines.  



Our aircraft and our crew are ready to fly you home, and we will do what we can to make this possible. Thank you for your patience and understanding in this challenging time.
