On February 16, 2021, the Bureau of Immigration revised guidelines for passengers allowed to the travel to the Philippines. This is pursuant to the Inter-agency Task Force Against Emerging and Infectious Diseases (IATF) Resolution No. 98 Series of 2021.
In addition to the existing list of passengers allowed to travel to the Philippines, the revised guidelines permit entry to the following:
- Valid 9(G) visa holders issued on or prior to March 20, 2020, with unexpired validity at the time of entry.
- Valid 9(F), Special Visa for Employment Generation (SVEG), and Special Investor Resident Visa (SIRV) under EO63 holders issued on or prior to March 20, 2020, with unexpired validity at the time of entry.
- Holders of a valid and existing Special Resident Retirees Visa (SRRV) are required to present a Department of Foreign Affairs (DFA) entry exemption. Failure to present an entry exemption will lead to exclusion and the SRRV holder shall be boarded on the next available flight.
- Holders of a valid and existing Section 9(A) visa are expected to present a DFA entry exemption. However, this doesn’t guarantee the entry of passengers seeking admission on a Temporary Visitor Visa under section 9(A). 9(A) visa holders are able to establish their purpose of travel as stated in their respective DFA entry exemption document.
Immigrants must present a valid Re-entry Permit or validly extended Re-entry Permit, and non-immigrants must present a valid Special Return Certificate (SRC) or validly extended SRC, unless exempt. Failure to present this could lead to exclusion and the immigrant boarded on the next available flight.
