There’s No Entry For Foreigners — Until Further Notice.
(Updated 12 May 2020)
I keep hearing a lot of conflicting rumors and questions fly about travel into the Philippines.
The situation is fluid and may change at any time, but this is the way things are today, 12 May 2020 (Philippines Standard Time) (e don’t serve that idiotic Daylight Time nonsense here in the Philippines)
First, let me give you the latest status quote from the NAIA Airport official Facebook page
Allow us to clarify to everyone that only repatriating Filipinos and their immediate family members will be allowed entry in the country. (My emphasis)
Kindly note that last week, international inbound flights for OFWs and other overseas Filipinos were ordered to be temporarily suspended by the National Task Force (NTF) Against COVID-19 to ramp up the readiness of our country’s international gateway in handling arriving repatriates in so far as COVID-19 testing capability and quarantine facilities’ availability and readiness are concerned.
Let it be clear that the ban on foreign tourists and non-residents, except diplomats and heads/members of international missions, will continue to be enforced in the country, until further notice from the IATF.
Thank you. https://www.facebook.com/DOTrPH/
Foreign Nationals except for diplomats are not going to be allowed entry to the Philippines until further notice.
Other Notifications Require Airlines To Inform All Passengers Before Boarding
Now, on the other hand, I notice there are now a lot more outbound passenger flights originating here.
So that’s the news of the day on Philippines arrivals for foreigners. For now,
You Can’t Come To The Philippines.
