MANILA, Philippines — The country’s pandemic task force has updated the list of countries and territories covered by the “green list” where fully vaccinated travelers qualify for a shorter quarantine period upon arrival in the Philippines.
Below are the 33 countries and territories covered by the updated “green list” of the Inter-Agency Task Force (IATF) for the Management of Emerging Infectious Diseases (IATF-MEID) as of September 4:
Republic of the Congo
Falkland Islands (Malvinas)
Federated States of Micronesia
Northern Mariana Islands
Saint Pierre and Miquelon
Fully vaccinated travelers coming from these countries are qualified to undergo a seven-day facility-based quarantine, instead of the normal 10 days.
Under IATF guidelines, travelers qualified for the shortened quarantine period should have stayed the past 14 days exclusively in the aforementioned countries prior to arrival in the Philippines. Inbound passengers are considered fully vaccinated against at least two weeks after receiving a single-dose jab or the second shot of a two-dose vaccine.
