The “No authentic negative RT-PCR test result, No Entry” policy remains to be the gold standard FOR ALL INBOUND TRAVELERS regardless of reason or purpose of travel, as stipulated in Executive Order 674-2021.
The free random rapid antigen test conducted at the city’s borders since August 11 is focused on essential workers who are allowed unhampered movement across all borders. It is only one of the measures to curb the spread of COVID-19 and the more transmissible delta variant.
It is likewise compulsory for all inbound travellers to register with S-PaSS for the issuance of a travel coordination permit, 3 days prior to travel date.
Zamboanga City will continue to tighten the fight against COVID-19 with the threat of new variants of concern for the safety and protection of Basilan, Sulu, Tawi-tawi and Zamboanga Peninsula.
