Filling out eArrival card before flight to PH no longer required

MANILA, Philippines — Filling out the electronic arrival card (eArrival card) before boarding a flight to the Philippines will no longer be required as a "scan-and-go" system will instead be implemented, Malacañang announced on Wednesday.

In a statement, Undersecretary Cheloy Garafil, the officer in charge of the Office of the Press Secretary, said the government would set up special lanes in the country's gateways for those who want to comply with the eArrival card.

"This is no longer mandatory. Lanes will be set up in airports for this system," she said in a mix of Filipino and English.

This move supersedes the Department of Health's earlier announcement that starting Nov. 1, the Bureau of Quarantine (BOQ) would require all inbound travelers to have an e-Arrival Card within 72 hours prior to their departure from their country of origin.

However, during a Cabinet meeting, officials have agreed to lift this requirement, meaning travelers can fill out the eArrival card at their own convenience — prior to departure or upon arrival.

According to Tourism Secretary Christina Frasco, special lanes will be set up by the DOH in coordination with the Bureau of Quarantine for those who have not had the opportunity to fill out the e-Arrival Card.

MANILA — Passengers bound for the Philippines will no longer be obliged to fill out the electronic arrival card (e-arrival card) before boarding, Malacañang said Wednesday.

In a statement, the Office of the Press Secretary said that lanes will be set up in ports of entry nationwide for those complying with the government requirement.

"Hindi na ito mandatory; lanes will be set up in airports for this system," Office of the Press Secretary Officer-in-Charge Undersecretary Cheloy Valecaria-Garafil said.

The Department of Health (DOH) and Bureau of Quarantine (BOQ) earlier announced that starting Nov. 1, e-arrival cards will be required for inbound passengers 72 hours prior to their departure from their country of origin.

The e-arrival card replaced the "One Health Pass" requirement.

But in a press briefing Tuesday, Tourism Secretary Christina Frasco said that it was approved during the Cabinet meeting that filling out of e-arrival cards would not be made mandatory as a prerequisite for boarding.

This means that travelers can fill out the said card at their own convenience, before departure or upon arrival.

Frasco added that special lanes will also be set up in the country's gateways for those who have not had the opportunity to fill out the e-Arrival Card.

"The overarching direction of the Marcos administration is to allow our country to convey an openness and a readiness to the world to receive tourists and investments so that we would give our fellow Filipinos an opportunity to regain all the livelihood and losses that were incurred during the pandemic," she said.

Frasco also said that the Marcos administration's lifting of travel restrictions will help reinvigorate the country's tourism industry, which was among the sectors hardest hit by the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic over the past 2 years.
