Philippines eTravel Information

The eTravel is the latest entry form for passengers traveling to or from the Philippines.

It replaced the One Health Pass previously introduced during the COVID-19 pandemic.

The simple online registration includes a health declaration designed to help authorities protect public health.

The information provided also allows Filipino authorities to:

  • Screen incoming passengers
  • Track and contain outbreaks of disease
  • Be aware of who is entering and leaving the country

The eTravel application for the Philippines must be completed within 72 hours before the trip. It is not possible to fill out the online form more than 72 hours before departure.

Once processed and approved, you receive an eTravel Pass QR code sent by email. You need to present this upon arrival at a border checkpoint in the Philippines.

The Philippines eTravel is an extra obligation for travelers and does not replace any other required documentation, such as the Philippines eTA.

Passengers must still show all standard paperwork to enter the Philippines, such as a visa. If you are not eligible for an eTA, you may need to apply for a visa from a Philippines embassy or consulate.
