The Philippines has updated its COVID-19 travel list classification which will take effect on Sept. 19, authorities said, as the country struggles to slow the transmission of the highly contagious coronavirus Delta variant.

The new classification, which replaced blanket travel bans, will be effective until Sept. 30, Presidential Spokesperson Harry Roque said.

Foreign travelers coming from Red List areas are prohibited entry to the Philippines. Those coming from Yellow List areas however need to undergo a longer quarantine than travelers coming from Green List countries.
