Travel rules for Filipino kin eased further

Foreign spouses and children of Filipinos traveling with them will now be allowed to enter the country starting Dec. 7, according to an order issued an inter-agency task force.

Former Filipino citizens may also come to the Philippines as long as they have pre-booked a quarantine facility and undergo coronavirus testing, the task force said in a resolution.

“They, too, must be subject to the maximum capacity of inbound passengers at the port and date of entry,” presidential spokesman Harry L. Roque said in a statement on Friday.

The task force ordered the Bureau of Immigration to come up with the rules for its enforcement, while the Tourism department must issue guidelines on accommodations.

It also allowed some companies to increase their shuttle services for employees as long as passengers are a seat apart. The Labor and Trade departments will come up with protocols for private shuttles.

The task force also adopted the StaySafe.ph app for contact-tracing and asked private companies to use it as well. — Vann Marlo M. Villegas
