The famous white sands of Boracay Island are now open. The best part is that it does not require their guests to have a PCR-Test but would need to present their vaccination card. Guests would now need to fill up their health declaration card by visiting touristboracay.com

Once this is submitted and approved, guests will have a Health Declaration Form, which they have to present at the Boracay airport and hotel establishments. We highly advise guests in Manila to travel to arrive 3 hours before their booking since there is a long distance outside and inside the airport.

Fully vaccinated local and foreign tourists visiting this island can walk in and have their booster shots administered by licensed pharmacists, Tourism Secretary Berna Romulo-Puyat said.

Following the reopening of the country’s borders last week, the Department of Tourism (DOT) is optimistic about an increase in tourist arrivals.


Tourism Secretary Berna Romulo-Puyat said the DOT aims to gradually increase tourist arrivals, which will help the local tourism industry recover. “Due to the pandemic, international travel and tourism suffered an unprecedented drop in visitor arrivals; the reopening of the Philippines’ borders to visa-free visitors will undoubtedly help in improving our numbers,” Puyat added.

“We at the DOT are excited to witness a renaissance in our local tourism,” she said, adding that they will continue to support their partners in attaining this aim.

Actual inbound tourist arrivals from visa-free nations were 9,283 as of February 14 2022. According to DOT data, 4,209 people are balikbayans, while 5,074 are foreign visitors.

With 2,227 arrivals throughout the four days, tourists from the United States of America (USA) take the lead, followed by 661 from Canada, 404 from Australia, 344 from the UK, 189 from Korea, 168 from Germany and 169 from Japan.

Puyat also emphasized the country’s preparedness for foreign visitors, stating that more than 90% of the country’s target tourism staff are vaccinated.

As of February 11, 2021, 323,206 people, or 93.09 per cent of the DOT’s nationwide target of 353,075 tourist workers in various tourism-related industries, have received their COVID-19 vaccination.
