US Travelers Banned to Enter Philippines until January 15
The Philippines has banned foreign passengers coming from United States, or have been to United States within 14 days, from entering the Philippines from Jan. 3 to 15, 2021.
With the newly discovered COVID-19 strain in United Kingdom, the Philippines has issued 21 travel-restricted countries such as the US, UK, Ireland, Japan, Australia, Canada, Italy and Singapore.
Filipino nationals are allowed entry but are still required to take a RT-PCR test, quarantine and follow the Department of Health’s isolation protocols.
The Philippine Consulate General in Honolulu reminds Filipino nationals arriving in the Philippines during the travel ban to ensure they have reserved their 14-day quarantine at a DOH-accredited facility.
They also urge kababayans to postpone their trips to the country until after the end of the travel restrictions to avoid any inconvenience, additional expenses and to prevent the spread of the new COvID-19 variant.
It is advised to always check airline updates and travel status before booking a plane ticket and departing for travel as information could change anytime.
