[TRAVEL ADVISORY] Philippine Department of Foreign Affairs (DFA): Travel Bans And Restrictions Update

Philippine Department of Foreign Affairs (DFA): Travel Bans And Restrictions Update

#DFAAdvisory: In line with the easing in some countries of their existing travel restrictions and the ongoing preventive measures against the spread of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19), the DFA encourages all Filipinos traveling out from and returning to the Philippines to refer and be initially guided by the following Travel Restrictions imposed by countries across the Americas, Asia and thePacific, Europe, Middle East and Africa.

Please note that this information is subject to change without prior and sufficient public notice.

Travelers, even with valid visas or confirmed flights, should consult with relevant Embassies or Consulates of the destination country and ports of transit before booking the ticket. It is always best to check ahead of travel dates with the airlines that will be used for departure.

The DFA will strive to update this advisory as needed.


#DFAAdvisory: Alinsunod sa unti-unting pagpapaluwag ng ilang mga bansa sa kani-kanilang pinaiiral na mga paghihigpit ukol sa paglalakbay at mga pagtatakda upang patuloy na labanan ang pagkalat ng coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19), hinihikayat ng DFA ang lahat ng mga Pilipinong manlalakbay na sumangguni at isaalang-alang ang mga sumusunod na talaan ng “Mga Paghihigpit sa Paglalakbay”, na nagsasaad ng mga pangkasalukuyang ipinapataw na mga alituntunin ng iba’t-ibang mga bansa sa Amerika, Asya at Pasipiko, Europa, Gitnang Silangan at Africa.

Mangyaring alalahanin na ang mga nakasaad na banyagang pagtatakda at alituntunin ay maaaring mabago nang walang paunang patalastas o pasabi.

Dahil dito, ang mga manlalakbay, kahit na may hawak na wastong visa o may nakumpirma nang mga paglipad, ay pinapaalalahanan at pinapayuhang sumangguni muna sa kinauukulang banyagang Embahada o Konsulado ng patutunguhan na bansa (at kung kinakailangan, maging mga bansa ng daraanang paliparan o port ng transit) bago mag-kumpirma o bumili ng ticket para sa paglipad o paglalakbay sa ibayong-dagat.

Pinapayuhan din ang ating mga kababayan na laging makipag-ugnayan sa kinauukulang airline at tiyakin ng mabuti at ng maaga ang kani-kanilang mga takdang petsa ng paglalakbay.

Sisikapin ng DFA na agarang ipatalastas ang anumang mga pagbabago sa mga nabanggit at ipinababatid na mga alituntunin ng iba’t-ibang bansa.

How to protect yourself from the coronavirus or COVID-19?
With the continual spread of the coronavirus or COVID19, it is better to stay vigilant and follow these simple ways to prevent yourself from getting the disease.
  • Wash your hands with soap or use a hand sanitizer that contains alcohol with at least 70% solution.
  • Sneeze and cough into tissues or the crook of your elbow. If you get mucus or spit on your skin, clean it off right away. Avoid touching your face with unwashed hands.
  • Avoid close contact with people who are sick, especially people exhibiting respiratory symptoms and fever.
  • Stay home when you're sick.
  • Regularly and thoroughly clean surfaces, such as countertops and doorknobs, with a disinfectant. 
  • If you are sick:  You should wear a facemask when you are around other people and practice distancing yourself.  
  • For healthy people wear a mask only if you are caring for someone who is sick or a person with suspected COVID-19 infection. Facemasks may be in short supply and they should be saved for the caregivers.
  • If you choose to wear a facemask make sure it is covering your mouth and nose and leave no gaps between your face and the mask.
