More local destinations dropped the RT-PCR test requirement for fully vaccinated tourists as leisure travel slowly resumes with the unwinding of more coronavirus restrictions, the Department of Tourism said.

Instead of swab test results, certain entry points will only require vaccination cards issued by their respective local government units or vaccination certificates issued by the Department of Health.

“As we expect more tourists going to Boracay Island, and other destinations that have eased travel requirements for fully vaccinated individuals in the coming weeks, we continue to remind travelers to observe minimum health and safety protocols when visiting the spots,” Tourism Sec. Bernadette Romulo-Puyat said.
