Registration Procedure at the Venue

COVID Rules for Entry to the Philippines

Simple entry protocols to the Philippines continue to be in effect. Based on the latest guidelines from the Department of Foreign Affairs, foreign nationals and Filipinos who have received primary series COVID-19 vaccine and at least one COVID-19 booster shot no longer need an RT-PCR or Antigen test. All others are required to present a negative result of an RT-PCR Test taken within 48 hours OR Rapid Antigen test administered and certified by a healthcare professional in a healthcare facility, laboratory, clinic, pharmacy or similar, taken within 24 hours before departure from the country of origin.  

All Proofs of Vaccination Status are now acceptable when entering the Philippines.  

ADB Travelers are advised to register with eTravel - Philippine One-Stop Electronic Travel Declaration System for a smoother and quicker entry process. Without the OHP, entry will take longer since documents will need to be verified manually upon arrival.  Please note that upon completion of your registration, it will issue you a QR code, please ensure to take a screenshot. Registration for eTravel is FREE.
