Manila, Philippines – Filipino and foreign travelers arriving in the Philippines are encouraged to use the One Health Pass system which automates all processes such as medical declaration and pre-arrival quarantine procedures.
On Monday, August 30, Office of Quarantine (BOC) director Roberto Salvador Jr. said the system received positive feedback from registrants during its two-week trial, especially because the time to processing of arriving passengers had been shortened.
“Control of the participation of the native pilot [sa One Health Pass]. More than 2 weeks of trial, ngayon po ay umakyat na po tayo sa more than 80% ang nagko-comply na mag-register, ”Salvador said adding that since the portal is user-friendly, traveling to the Philippines has been made even more convenient .
Arriving travelers can log into the OneHealthPass portal three days before arriving in the Philippines.
A transaction number and QR code will be provided for the traveler to present upon arrival in the Philippines.
“Within 3 days of the trip to the Philippines, log into the onehealthpass.com.ph transaction number to get the transaction number,” the official said.
“Then 24 hours a day at kapag nasa na kayo airport, bago mag-board, dapat po i-fill out the naman ang health declaration checklist,” he added.
Upon arrival, travelers should attend an orientation session and obtain immigration clearance before proceeding to their quarantine hotel.
Once the quarantine is over, they will receive their COVID-19 test result and their quarantine certificate.
The OneHealthPass system will then notify their local government of destination as proof that travelers have been authorized.
“Marami na po tayong magagandang nakukuhang feedback galing po sa mga umuwi nating mga OFW,” said director Salvador.
“Nakikiusap kami with the most yellow cards that you have received, the most of these is, maybe the OEC, or the young people can get tickets,” he said.
