Philippines – The Southeast Asian island nation has announced plans to reopen its borders to international tourism on Feb. 10, 2022, after about two years of entry bans. The first step will be the turn of nationals from 157 countries, which includes Austria. To enter the country, people aged 18 and older must show a vaccination certificate and a negative PCR test, which must not be older than 48 hours.

The Philippines is opening its borders to international vacationers for the first time since March 2020. Starting Feb. 10, fully Corona-vaccinated tourists from 157 countries, including Germany, Austria, and Switzerland, will be able to enter the country without quarantine with a PCR test no more than 48 hours old.

For nearly two years, the Philippines’ borders were closed to travelers.

Already at the end of last year, the Philippines announced the first opening steps, which were temporarily suspended by the emergence of Omicron. Now it’s official: starting February 10, fully vaccinated tourists from countries with high vaccination coverage can enter the country. The previously required seven-day quarantine is no longer necessary. The regulation applies to persons 18 years of age and older. Accordingly, children under the age of 18 do not need to be vaccinated, but must also submit a PCR test.

Unvaccinated persons can also come to the Philippines but are subject to quarantine. They also need a PCR test for entry, spend five days in a quarantine facility, and then take a second PCR test. This is followed by private quarantine until day 14 regardless of the test result.

“This will allow the tourism industry to recover and thus contribute significantly to the livelihood of the people and the economic growth of the country,” says government spokesman Karlo Nograles on the February reboot. The Philippines Department of Transportation says the World Travel & Tourism Council Global Summit international travel trade show is scheduled to be held in Manila from April 20-22.
