MANILA, Philippines — The government’s COVID-19 task force on Wednesday released a list of “green” or low-risk countries for COVID-19 jurisdictions where a fully vaccinated person must come from to qualify for a shorter quarantine period upon arrival in the Philippines.

The Inter-Agency Task Force for the Management of Emerging Infectious Diseases (IATF) earlier allowed travelers fully vaccinated abroad entering the Philippines from “green” countries to undergo a seven-day facility-based quarantine, instead of 10 days.


These travelers should have stayed the past 14 days exclusively in “green” countries prior to arrival in the Philippines, the IATF stressed.
