Filipinos can Leave the Philippines fronm Oct 21.
BI Commissioner Jaime Morente has said:
“Starting October 21, the BI will be allowing the departure of Filipinos with non-essential travel.”
Initially, only foreign nationals, overseas Filipino workers, permanent visa holders, students enrolled abroad, participants accepted in exchange visitor programs, as well as those who had essential travel, were allowed to depart.
The new ruling, however, expands this to include non-essential travel.
“Outbound tourism is now allowed for Filipinos, subject to compliance with protocols set by the IATF,” said Morente.
IATF Resolution no. 79 requires outbound Filipino tourists to present a round trip ticket, health and travel insurance, and a negative antigen result at least 24 hours before departure.
However, according to the ruling, if the country of destination requires an RT-PCR test, then the same must be presented instead.
Departing Filipinos shall also be required to sign a declaration acknowledging the risks of their
travel, to be provided by airline check-in counters. “Afterwhich, passengers will still undergo regular immigration assessment.”
