The Philippines Eases Quarantine Requirements for Vaccinated Travelers

Vaccinated travelers to the Philippines from Green List countries will now have to quarantine for only 7 days.

The Inter-Agency Task Force has announced new guidance for “Green Lanes,” applicable to travelers from countries that are considered low-risk.

  • From July 26, 2021, fully vaccinated international travelers coming from a Green List country or region will have to complete a 7-day facility-based quarantine and RT-PCR test on the 5th day after arrival.
  • Travelers who are unvaccinated or who are traveling from a non-Green List country or region will have to complete a 10-day facility-based quarantine and a 4-day home quarantine, including an RT-PCR test on the 7th day.
