MANILA, Philippines — Despite the downward trend in COVID-19 infections and the easing of some mobility restrictions, foreign tourists are still not allowed to enter the Philippines, Malacañang said yesterday.


“We still do not allow the entry of foreign tourists; only long-staying visa holders,” presidential spokesman Harry Roque said in Filipino during a press briefing.


The Inter-Agency Task Force for the Management of Emerging Infectious Diseases (IATF) recently approved the revised guidelines for passengers from countries, territories or jurisdictions in the “green” list or those classified as low risk.


For fully inoculated foreign nationals, a negative RT-PCR test will have to be taken within 72 hours prior to departure from the country of origin. Upon arrival, there is no need for them to undergo facility-based quarantine but the passenger should self-monitor for any symptoms until the fourteenth day.
