Starting November 16, fully vaccinated Filipinos from the UAE can finally fly back home without having to undergo facility-based quarantine.
The UAE, as well as India, Pakistan and Oman, has been added to the Philippines’ green list, government authorities announced on Friday.
Upon arrival, no facility-based quarantine will be required but the passenger is enjoined to self-monitor for any symptoms until the 14th day.
Arriving Filipinos and foreigners will just have to present a negative result from an RT-PCR test taken within 72 hours before their flight.
Fully vaccinated Filipinos who won't be able to present a test result may opt to get screened upon arrival and undergo facility-based quarantine until they get a negative result.
Hotel quarantine will still be required for the following Filipinos:
• Partially vaccinated
• Individuals whose vaccination status cannot be independently verified
• Those vaccinated but failed to comply with the test-before-travel requirements
