ADVISORY NO. 21/2020
ADVISORY FOR FILIPINOS INTENDING TO TRAVEL TO THE PHILIPPINES
In compliance with the Memorandum from the Executive Secretary, Office of the President, dated 29 December 2020 on the regulation of entry for travelers from or transiting through countries that have reported incidence of the new COVID-19 strain, the Philippine Embassy in Warsaw informs and reminds Filipinos in Poland, Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania, and Ukraine as follows:
• All overseas Filipinos are reminded of the limited quarantine facilities in place and are thus strongly urged to reconsider travel plans to the Philippines for the duration of the travel restrictions, which is set to end on 31 January 2021.
• Those entering the country from countries and jurisdiction affected by the new SARS-CoV-19 variant are also reminded that they will be required to undergo and complete a strict mandatory 14-day quarantine at a DOH- approved facility, regardless of negative RT-PCR result.
All travelers to the Philippines are therefore urged to reconsider their travel plans, including postponing their trips until after the end of the travel restrictions to avoid personal inconvenience and possible additional expenses as well as help prevent the incidence of the new COVID-19 strain in the country.
For the given period, non-Filipino nationals, regardless of previous visa status, exemptions granted, or relation to Filipino citizens, will temporarily be restricted from entering the Philippines.
All travelers are reminded to always check ahead of travel dates with their airlines before departure or before booking a ticket as information published could change at any time. END
