Camiguin, Boracay scrap swab test for fully vaxxed guests
MANILA – Camiguin and two different destinations are rejecting the swab test necessity for completely inoculated guests, the Department of Tourism (DOT) said Saturday.
In an assertion, the office said Camiguin will begin tolerating immunization cards in lieu of a negative converse record polymerase chain response test result beginning Monday, November 15, while Boracay and Guimaras will execute a comparative approach the following day.
As of Saturday, DOT said the accompanying objections have postponed the swab test necessity for completely immunized visitors:
- Nueva Ecija
- Oriental Mindoro
- Camarines Norte
- Negros Occidental
- Southern Leyte
- Zamboanga del Sur
- Zamboanga Sibugay
- Misamis Oriental
- Cebu Province
- San Vicente, Palawan
- Naga City, Camarines Sur
- Baguio City, Benguet
- Cebu City and Mandaue City
- Clark Freeport Zone
- Subic Bay Freeport Zone
- Dingalan, Aurora
- Maasin City, Leyte
- Ormoc City, Leyte
- Calbayog City, Samar
- Mati, Davao Oriental
The developing rundown of homegrown objections facilitating their entrance conventions is an “sign that the country’s travel industry is gradually financially recovering.” the DOT said.
“With the lifting of the testing requirements for completely immunized guests to these objections, travel has become more reasonable and available for homegrown vacationers, particularly with the coming Christmas season,” Tourism Secretary Bernadette Romulo-Puyat said.
She encouraged sightseers to keep noticing the base wellbeing and security conventions when voyaging.
“As we expect more sightseers going to Boracay Island, and different objections that have facilitated travel necessities for completely immunized people before long, we keep on reminding voyagers to notice least wellbeing and security conventions when visiting the spots,” she said.
She moreover reminded the travel industry organizations, laborers, and different partners not to be smug to forestall Covid-19 cases from expanding and support the business’ recuperation.
“Perceiving how the resuming of the travel industry all around the nation is assisting Filipinos with getting back to their positions, we can’t bear the cost of another flood of Covid-19 diseases and a re-visitation of the limitations forced by a stricter quarantine,” she said. “Allow us to do our singular parts to guarantee that there will be no flare-ups in our objections.”
