A TOP government official announced today that foreign travelers from the “Green” countries list will be allowed to enter the Philippines starting December 1 until December 15, subject to certain conditions.
Cabinet Secretary and acting presidential spokesperson Karlo Nograles noted that these conditions, as stated in Resolution No. 150-A of the Inter-Agency Task Force for the Management of Emerging Infectious Diseases, that the traveler must present a negative RT-PCR test result 72 hours prior to departure from country of origin.
“Upon arrival of the traveler, there will no longer be facility-based quarantine or RT-PCR required. The passenger is also encouraged to do self-monitoring for any possible symptoms until the 14th day with the first day being the date of arrival,” the resolution continued.
The resolution also stated that “travelers merely transiting through non-Green list countries/territories/jurisdictions shall not be deemed as having come from or having been to said countries/territories/jurisdictions if they stayed in the airport the whole tie and were not cleared for entry.”
Finally, the resolution further stated that “testing and quarantine protocols of minors shall follow the testing and quarantine protocol of the parent/guardian traveling with them.“
