The Philippines Entry Regulations

(Updated November 20th, 2023)

The Philippines has lifted all COVID-19 measures for international travelers. This means that tourists or temporary visitors no longer have to present proof of vaccination to enter the country. This allows individuals to visit the Philippines regardless of their COVID-19 vaccination status

The Philippines, however, requires travelers to register for an eTravel card within 72 hours before departure. This browser-based system features an easier and shorter registration process so travelers no longer need to download and install an app on their phones. Follow the Philippines Department of Tourism or contact the Philippines Bureau of Immigration for the latest advice. With the easing of COVID-19 restrictions, this tropical paradise awaits you with exciting adventures, unmatched natural beauty, and a wide array of aquatic activities.
