HINDI puwedeng pumasok ng Filipinas ang mga pasahero mula sa India bunsod ng paglobo ng kaso ng CoVid-19 sa nasabing bansa.
Ayon kay Presidential Spokesman Harry Roque, magsisimula ang travel ban 12:01 pm sa 29 Abril hanggang 14 Mayo 2021.
“All travelers coming from India or those with travel history to India within the last fourteen (14) days preceding arrival shall be prohibited from entering the Philippines beginning 0001H of April 29, 2021, until May 14, 2021,” pahayag ni Roque.
“Passengers already in transit from the abovementioned country and all those who have been to the same within 14 days immediately preceding arrival to the Philippines, who arrive before 0001H of April 29, 2021, shall not be subject to the above restriction, but shall nevertheless be required to undergo stricter quarantine and testing protocols i.e. the observation of an absolute facility-based fourteen-day quarantine period notwithstanding a negative Reverse Transcription – Polymerase Chain Reaction (RT-PCR) result,” ani Roque.
Ani Roque, ang Office of the President ay nagbabase sa rekomendasyon ng Department of Health (DOH) at Department of Foreign of Affairs (DFA), ang magdedesisyon sa mga biyahero mula sa ibang bansa na makapagtatala ng bagong strain ng CoVid-19.
“The Department of Transportation should ensure that airlines are directed not to allow the boarding of passengers entering the country pursuant to travel restrictions imposed by the Office of the President and IATF resolutions except if they are part of the repatriation efforts of the national government,” dagdag ni Roque.
