Gov’t merges quarantine and immigration arrival requirements for int’l passengers
Pursuant to the Philippine government’s efforts to streamline its entry procedures and data collection processes, the eTravel platform was launched Friday. eTravel is an online registration system for travelers to the Philippines and returning residents.
Beginning December 2, passengers using the www.onehealthpass.com.ph will be redirected to the new eTravel domain as the Health Declaration Checklist of the Department of Health-Bureau of Quarantine may be directly accessed through etravel.gov.ph.
On Monday, December 5, the old domain of the One Health Pass will no longer be accessible to the public.
The eTravel platform will host the electronic version of the paper Arrival Card that travelers must submit upon arrival in the Philippines for immigration clearance.
Also starting December 5, the Bureau of Immigration will discontinue using the paper Arrival Card. All travelers will be required to provide their arrival information and health declaration through the eTravel portal.
Registration on the eTravel platform is free. The public is warned against transacting with any entities or websites soliciting payments and fees of any kind as these are in no way related to the official eTravel platform of the Philippine government.
The eTravel platform is a joint initiative of the Department of Information and Communications Technology in partnership with the Bureau of Immigration, Bureau of Quarantine, Bureau of Customs, Department of Tourism, Department of Health, Department of Justice, and Department of Transportation.
