Leisure travel, mall sales now allowed

Filipinos can travel abroad again.

This after the country lifted restrictions on non-essential travel in a bid to reinvigorate the economy which took a big hit from the Covid-19 pandemic.

The government’s Covid-19 taskforce likewise allowed malls to hold sales and promotional events as part of efforts to revive declining businesses.

However, the lifting of non-essential travel effective October 21 doesn’t mean it’s suddenly safe to travel abroad.

The government’s Covid-19 taskforce said any Filipino wishing to travel again could do so as long as they submit negative antigen tests a day before their departure and show confirmed roundtrip plane tickets and adequate health and travel insurance.

They must also execute an immigration declaration acknowledging the risks involved in traveling.
