The PCG advised travelers to check existing ordinances of their local government of destination as documentary and testing requirements vary.

Travelers must secure a quick response (QR) code or S-PASS and prepare their COVID-19 vaccination cards, antigen test, or reverse transcription-polymerase chain reaction (RT-PCR) test.

From October 29 to October 4, PCG’s districts, stations, and sub-stations were placed on heightened alert to control the volume of port passengers who will visit their families in the provinces.

According to the PCG, tourist destinations are expected to be swarmed by fully vaccinated local tourists as the government gradually relaxes restrictions due to declining COVID-19 cases.
