6 PHL destinations simplify travel–CEB


Cebu Pacific (CEB) has announced that there are now 6 destinations in its network that have simplified their travel requirements, namely, Cebu, Pagadian, Negros Occidental, Guimaras, Tacloban and Butuan which no longer require RT-PCR or antigen test.

Travelers bound for Cebu Province must present a medical certificate stating that they do not exhibit symptoms of Covid-19 issued within 24 hours of before arrival in Cebu.

Pagadian City-bound travelers are required to present a valid government-issued ID, which states that address is in Pagadian City, while transiting passengers do not need to present any requirement.

The four other destinations—Negros Occidental (except Bacolod City), Guimaras, Tacloban and Butuan—accept vaccination cards of fully-vaccinated persons as travel requirement for entry. A passenger is considered fully-vaccinated at least 14 days after having received the second dose in a two-dose series, or at least 14 days after having received a single-dose vaccine.

Here below are the other requirements for the four provinces aside from the vaccination card:

Negros Occidental—Travel coordination permit (TCP) from S-Pass and complete registration to StaySafe.ph

Guimaras—TCP from S-Pass

Tacloban—Passenger must register under the Balik Tacloban Project through www.baliktacloban.tacloban.gov.ph. A passenger bound for Tacloban may also present certification of Quarantine Completion with vaccination status in securing the Acceptance Letter when travelling to Tacloban City

Butuan—TCP from S-Pass, and upload a valid, government-issued ID on the system. For a passenger bound for cities or municipalities outside Butuan City, he/she must show approved Travel Pass-Through Permit from S-Pass

“We are encouraged by the efforts of these LGUs [local government units] to open up their borders and simplify travel requirements. We share the goals of the national government that we do not contribute to the spread of the virus, by implementing safe and risk-based approach to travel,” said Candice Iyog, Vice President for Marketing and Customer Experience at Cebu Pacific.

“Travelers are strongly urged to always check with the LGU of their destination for the latest updates.”
