The Philippines introduced a new electronic traveler registration entry system on 5 December 2022
The government of the Philippines launched a new platform on 5 December 2022 that will replace arrival cards and the One Health Pass. As a result, travelers entering the country will be required to register through the eTravel platform no more than 72 hours prior to departure for the Philippines. Travelers will be required to provide the following information when registering:
- Biographical information
- Travel details
- Health declarations, including information on vaccination history.
Travelers will then receive a green QR code that can be used for express entry into the country. If the traveler receives a red code, the traveler will be required to undergo an interview upon arrival and may be required to undergo a quarantine period.
