Philippines eTravel Pass

Philippines eTravel Pass Information

The Philippines eTravel Departure Card is a digital entry permit required from all visitors. The new online system replaced the document called One Health Pass. It allows the Philippine Government to monitor the number of travelers entering and leaving the country. It also permits a more complex economic data analysis and is a convenient health surveillance tool.

The Philippines eTravel registration must be completed by both foreign nationals and Filipino citizens. No particular nationality is granted an exemption from the eTravel Pass requirement. You need an immigration card if traveling by air or sea.

With the permit, you can enter the Philippines to enjoy tourism, leisure, business, etc. Remember that once you leave the country, the document becomes invalid. For another visit, apply online again.

To register in the Philippines eTravel system, you must provide your personal data and travel details. You must also provide information about your current health and well-being.

Once you pay the processing fee, wait for an e-mail with the confirmation. You will then receive a personal QR code (red or green).

On arrival in the Philippines, head to the immigration officers. They will check your travel documents and verify your Philippines eTravel QR code. Without a valid entry permit, you won't be allowed to enter the country. Therefore, don't forget to apply online before your journey.

You should register in the Philippines eTravel system 3 days prior to the arrival date abroad.
