The Philippine government recently replaced the One Health Pass with a new eTravel platform.

Key Points:

  • As of Dec. 2, all travelers must register through the eTravel platform at least 72 hours before arrival in the Philippines.
  • To register, travelers are required to provide basic biographical information, travel details and health declarations, including vaccination details.
  • Once registration is completed correctly, travelers will receive a QR code that must be shown to appropriate authorities before departure and upon arrival.
  • Travelers who receive a green QR code qualify for express entry upon arrival; travelers who receive a red QR code will be interviewed upon arrival and may have to undergo a facility-based quarantine and take PCR tests.

Additional Information: Travelers who are unable to register through eTravel before departure or are unaware of the requirement can register upon arrival. More information regarding the Philippines’ COVID-19 entry and health requirements is available here.

BAL Analysis: Philippine authorities replaced the One Health Pass with the eTravel platform to streamline the entry process and simplify data collection for the those providing health declaration and arrival information. The response to the COVID-19 pandemic continues to develop, and BAL will provide additional updates as information becomes available.
