Philippines entry requirements
Earlier the Philippine government had announced that One Health Pass no longer applies in lieu of the eArrival card.

However, the government would set up special lanes in the country’s gateways for those who want to comply with the eArrival card. Please do refer to our eArrival Card article below for the latest development.
