Six destinations in the country have simplified their travel requirements making travel to these areas a little more convenient.
Cebu Pacific has announced that six destinations in its network—Cebu, Pagadian, Negros Occidental, Guimaras, Tacloban and Butuan—no longer require RT-PCR or Antigen test for travelers.
Travelers bound for Cebu Province need only to present a medical certificate issued within 24 hours of before arrival in Cebu stating they do not exhibit symptoms of COVID-19.
Pagadian City-bound travelers are required to present a valid government-issued ID, which states their address in Pagadian City, while transiting passengers do not need to present any requirement.
The four other destinations – Negros Occidental (except Bacolod City), Guimaras, Tacloban and Butuan – accept vaccination cards of fully-vaccinated persons as travel requirement for entry.
A passenger is considered fully-vaccinated at least 14 days after having received the second dose in a two-dose series, or at least 14 days after having received a single-dose vaccine.
Entry in the four provinces, aside from the vaccination card are the following:
Negros Occidental—Travel coordination permit (TCP) from S-Pass and complete registration to StaySafe.ph
Guimaras—TCP from S-Pass
Tacloban—Passenger must register under the Balik Tacloban Project through www.baliktacloban.tacloban.gov.ph. A passenger bound for Tacloban may also present certification of Quarantine Completion with vaccination status in securing the Acceptance Letter when travelling to Tacloban City
Butuan—TCP from S-Pass, and upload a valid, government-issued ID on the system. For a passenger bound for cities or municipalities outside Butuan City, he/she must show approved Travel Pass-Through Permit (TPP) from S-Pass
“We are encouraged by the efforts of these LGUs to open up their borders and simplify travel requirements. We share the goals of the national government that we do not contribute to the spread of the virus, by implementing a safe and risk-based approach to travel,” said Candice Iyog, Vice President for Marketing and Customer Experience at Cebu Pacific.
CEB strongly advises travelers to always check with the LGU of their destination for the latest updates.
