Philippines Removes Covid-19 Test For Fully Vaccinated, Boosted Travelers

The Philippines no longer requires Filipinos and foreigners from abroad to submit a pre-departure Covid-19 test when arriving in the country, provided that they are fully vaccinated and have had one booster shot.

They are, however, still required to show proof of vaccination from either of the following: World Health Organization International Certificate of Vaccination and Prophylaxis, VaxCertPH, national or state manual or digital vaccination certificate of the country or foreign government, other proof of vaccination permitted by the Intern-Agency Task Force on Emerging Infectious Diseases or IATF.

For those who haven’t taken their boosters are mandated to present a negative RT-PCR test taken within 48 hours or a remotely supervised or lab-based rapid antigen negative test result administered and certified by a healthcare professional in a healthcare professional in a healthcare facility within 24 hours prior to date and time of departure from the first port of embarkation.
