All overseas Filipinos can enter the Philippines during the pandemic. This has been the standing rule since travel restrictions were first implemented in mid-March and remain in place today.

For Filipinos to enter the Philippines, citizens will need either of the following:

  • Valid Philippine passport
  • Valid (one-way) travel document which is issued in emergency cases (such as when a passport is lost)

I am a Foreigner, can I travel to the Philippines ? 

“The entry of foreign tourists, non-immigrant visa holders, and other categories of aliens are still prohibited. They will be turned back if they land in any of our ports of entry,” BI Commissioner Jaime Morente said in a statement.

Entry restrictions to the Philippines are currently in place and issuance of visas at the Embassy is temporarily suspended. Likewise, visa-free privileges are temporarily suspended. Only spouses and children of Filipino nationals, foreign airlines crew, and officials of foreign government and international organizations accredited to the Philippines are exempted from this temporary suspension.
