To help flyers prepare for travel in the Philippines, specifically foreign nationals, Cebu Pacific has released an advisory reminding would-be passengers of new rules that will take effect come February 10.
According to the airline, fully vaccinated foreign travelers coming for business and tourism are no longer required to quarantine upon arrival.
This is in line with the new measures released by the Inter-Agency Task Force (IATF) on Emerging Infectious Diseases issued on February 3 under IATF Resolution 160-B. (Click here to read it in full.)
Under the new guidelines, they can now enter without visas as long as they present their negative RT-PCR test results performed 48 hours prior to departure and evidence of complete vaccination.
But besides that, the following are also being required:
- Valid tickets for their return journey to the port of origin or next port of destination not later than thirty (30) days from the date of arrival in the Philippines.
- Passports valid for at least six (6) months at the time of their arrival to the Philippines
- Travel insurance for COVID-19 treatment costs from reputed insurers, with a minimum coverage of USD 35,000 for the duration of their stay in the Philippines.
Under the new regulations, an individual is deemed fully vaccinated if he or she received the second dose in a two-dose series or a single dose vaccine more than 14 days before the date and time of departure from the point of origin.
Cebu Pacific flyers are also required to register for One Health Pass and save the unique transaction number once registration is complete.
