TEMPORARY RESTRICTIONS FOR PH-BOUND TRAVEL FROM 20 COUNTRIES

29 12月 2020

To comply with new Philippine government travel restrictions, we will only accept Filipino citizens from Hong Kong, Japan, Singapore, Canada, South Korea and Australia for the period from December 30, 2020 to January 15, 2021.  

For flights to the Philippines, we will be unable to accept foreign nationals who originated from, or were in transit via, or had visited the following countries within 14 days prior to their supposed arrival in the Philippines.   

1. Denmark
2. Ireland
3. Japan
4. Australia
5. Israel
6. The Netherlands
7. Hong Kong, SAR
8. Switzerland
9. France
10. Germany
11. Iceland
12. Italy
13. Lebanon
14. Singapore
15. Sweden
16. South Korea
17. South Africa
18. Canada
19. Spain
20. United Kingdom

Filipino citizens who had visited any of the above countries are allowed to enter the Philippines but will be required to undergo a strict 14-day quarantine period at a designated quarantine facility. 

However, passengers who are already in transit and arrive before December 30, 2020, 12:01AM, from the 20 countries / areas listed above, and/or who have been in these areas within 14 days prior to arrival, will be allowed entry but will be required to undergo an absolute facility-based 14-day quarantine period, even if their mandatory RT-PCR test results are negative.

The above restrictions are mandated by the presidential approval of the latest Resolution of the Inter-Agency Task Force on the Management of Infectious Diseases (IATF) restricting travel into the Philippines from specified countries, as a protection measure against the new variant of the SARS-COV 2 Virus.

We had earlier announced the cancellation of flights to/ from London until end-February 2021 in view of the tier4 lockdown of the UK government.

Affected passengers may rebook on the next available flights after the restriction period, with rebooking service fees waived. They may also refund the cost of their ticket with refunding service fees waived. A third available option is the conversion of the PAL ticket into a travel voucher for future use.

This is an evolving situation and PAL will cooperate closely with government authorities in support of all measures that seek to curb any potential increase in COVID-19 cases.
