When November arrived, many destinations in the Philippines were reopened to tourists. Alongside the lowering of alert levels and easing of quarantine classifications, domestic travel—of the leisure kind—was also allowed to resume. 

Among the places that now allow the entry of travelers is the island of Camiguin, which sits just 10 kilometers from Mindanao and within the Bohol Sea. 

The province is well-known for its impressive natural landscapes—topped, of course, by its white-sand beaches and clear blue waters. 

If you’re interested in visiting, here are the things you need to take note of:

Travel Eligibility and Requirements

  • Fully vaccinated – at least 14 days after receiving the final COVID-19 vaccine dose
  • Negative RT-PCR Test Result – 72 hours from swab if coming from NCR or Luzon; 48 hours from swab if coming from the Visayas or Mindanao
  • If staying in a private home, the passenger will need an LGU clearance instead of a confirmed reservation. Ask the host to process the clearance and have them send a copy
  • Fully vaccinated parents may bring their unvaccinated minor children
  • Adult (18 years old and above) children must also be fully vaccinated
  • RT-PCR Test is not required for children five years old and below
  • Register and get the CleanCamiguin QR Code at www.cleancamiguinqr.com

Currently, Camiguin is at Alert Level 2 and will stay that way until November 14. This means that the present travel requirements and eligibility will remain unchanged until after that period.

It’s also important to note that the requirements for travelers going to Camiguin could be subject to changes depending on the commercial airline you’re going to book a flight on. So, be sure to double-check the requirements.
