Mandatory quarantine for balikbayan and tourist travelers to the Philippines is finally lifted

The Philippines is finally reopening with minimal restrictions for fully vaccinated travelers. Starting February 1, 2022, balikbayans abroad can come to their homeland—without mandatory quarantine.

Likewise, foreigners or tourists who want to visit the country for business or pleasure will no longer be required to quarantine starting February 10, 2022, according to Cabinet Secretary Karlo Nograles.

  • February 1 – Fully vaccinated Filipinos, regardless of what country they came from.
  • February 10 – Fully vaccinated foreigners from visa-free countries, including the United States.

No more “hotel requirements”

For more than a year, travelers were forced to check-in to only accredited hotels for ten days with no visitors allowed, even if you are a Filipino citizen.

As a result of the strict quarantine procedure, travelers were forced to order expensive food in the hotel for more than a week.

Inconvenient and costly, it discouraged thousands of travelers from coming to the country.

Travel restrictions to Pinoys going to U.S.

According to the Philippine Embassy, Filipino travelers’ requirements to go to the U.S. still stand. All airline passengers ages two years and older, regardless of vaccination status or citizenship, must provide a negative COVID-19 viral test taken within 1-calendar day of travel. There are no mandatory quarantines.
