India, UAE, Oman Have Been Placed On Green List Of Philippines; Here’s Everything To Know

The Philippines recently amended and updated its “red, yellow, and green” countries agenda. On October 29, the Philippines’ Inter-Agency Task Force for the Management of Emerging Infectious Diseases (IATF-EID) announced the addition of 45 new countries to the “green” list. This means that travellers travelling in these nations do not need to go through a facility-based quarantine. However, until the 14th day, travellers must self-monitor for any symptoms. With the arrival date as the first day. From November 1 to 15, the new roster will be in effect.

Options To Undergo Facility-Based Quarantine

Any other country or territory that is not listed on the green list is placed on the yellow list, according to the authorities. The Philippines has only one country on its blacklist: Latvia. A facility-based quarantine is also an option for fully-vaccinated overseas Filipino workers or non-OFWs from green countries. Until their negative RT-PCR test result obtained at the quarantine facility upon entry into the country is released. Furthermore, people may choose not to be quarantined. So long as they receive a negative RT-PCR test result within 72 hours of leaving their home country. They should, however, check themselves for any symptoms until their 14th day in the nation.
