PH recognizes COVID-19 vaccination certifications of Laos, Rwanda
MANILA, Philippines — The Philippines will now recognize the national COVID-19 vaccination certificates of Laos and Rwanda.
The Inter-Agency Task Force (IATF) for the Management of Emerging Infectious Disease approved the acceptance and recognition of Laos and Rwanda’s proof of vaccination “for purposes of arrival quarantine protocols, as well as for inter-zonal/intrazonal movement,” acting presidential spokesperson Sec. Martin Andanar said in a statement.
“This is in addition to other countries/territories/jurisdictions whose proofs of vaccination the IATF has already approved for recognition in the Philippines, and without prejudice to such other proofs of vaccination approved by the IATF for all inbound travelers,” he added.
With Laos and Rwanda added to the list of countries with accepted proof of vaccination, the Philippines now recognizes the vaccine certificate of 79 countries, territories and jurisdictions.
