More details have been announced on the reopening of the Phillipines to foreign travellers, although we are still waiting for a confirmed start date of the scheme.
The reopening will allow fully vaccinated tourists from designated low-risk “green list” countries visit quarantine-free. They will need to have a negative PCR test taken no more than 72 hours prior to departure but will not need to have additional tests on arrival.
The “green list” currently comprises of 44 countries and territories:
- American Samoa,
- Cote d’Ivoire (Ivory Coast),
- Falkland Islands (Malvinas),
- Federated States of Micronesia,
- Hong Kong,
- Marshall Islands,
- Northern Mariana Islands,
- Saint Barthelemy,
- Saint Pierre and Miquelon,
- Saudi Arabia,
- Sierra Leone,
- Sint Eustatius,
- South Africa,
- United Arab Emirates,
Travellers from “Red List” countries will have to quarantine for 14 days on arrival, the first 10 in a quarantine facility. The “Red List” currently comprises the Netherlands and Faroe Islands.
Travellers from “Yellow List” countries will need to quarantine for 3 days on arrival, reduced from the current 5 days. They will need to show a negative PCR test prior to being released from quarantine. The “Yellow List” is all countries not on the yellow or red lists.
It is hoped that the reopening plan will start before the end of the year.
