More destinations drop RT-PCR travel requirement

  • Many destinations now accept vaccination cards for fully-vaccinated travelers in lieu of RT-PCR or antigen tests
  • Some others require fully immunized travelers to simply present their certificate from VaxCertPH

Cebu Pacific Airlines announced that 24 domestic destinations in its network no longer require negative RT-PCR test results for fully vaccinated passengers.

In an advisory, the airline said destinations that accept vaccination cards for fully-vaccinated travelers in lieu of RT-PCR or antigen tests include Bacolod, Bohol, Boracay, Camiguin, Cebu (Mandaue City and Cebu City), Cotabato, Dumaguete, General Santos, Iloilo, Kalibo, Legazpi, Naga, Ozamiz, Tuguegarao and Zamboanga.

Other requirements include vaccination certificates, government-issued ID cards, travel permits from S-Pass, confirmed accommodations, and registration to specific contact tracing applications.

Cebu Pacific said some destinations require fully immunized travelers to simply present their certificate from VaxCertPH like Roxas, or upload their vaccination status to S-Pass such as Butuan, and Cagayan de Oro.

Pagadian only requires a valid government-issued ID stating that address is within Pagadian City, regardless of vaccination status, while guests bound for Masbate are required to present the S-PaSS QR code, valid for 15 days from approval, it added.

Lapu-Lapu City, Clark, Davao, Manila, and Tacloban do not require arriving guests to present any travel documents for entry.

“We are happy with the various LGUs’ efforts in safely reopening their borders especially for fully vaccinated individuals. Not only does it simplify the process but also reduces the overall cost of travel. We would encourage a further review and simplification of requirements and for other destinations to follow suit,” said Xander Lao, chief commercial officer at Cebu Pacific.

Travelers are strongly urged to always check with the local government units of their destination for the latest updates, the airline said.
