Kudos to the Bureau of Immigration, BI, in the Philippines. They have issued simplified travel restrictions to the Philippines instead of lengthy confusing paragraphs of information.

Consequently, from the BI Facebook page, I’ll post the new guidelines which are in a simpler visual format.


Green Lane” Express Hopes to Revive PH Tourism Industry

In a June 2, 2021 Press Release, the Philippines Bureau of Immigration, BI, claims the agency supports the vaccinated foreigners program. The proposal, aka, “Green Lane,” is the recommendation of the Philippines Department of Tourism, DOT.

The Tourism Department sees the need to jump start the country’s ailing tourism industry. BI Commissioner Jaime Morente agrees and backs the setting up of a “green lane” for fully vaccinated foreigners.

However, like everything related to the “pandemic” in the Philippines, all COVID-19 issues need approval from the COVID-19 Task Force.

The Inter-Agency Task Force for the Management of Emerging Infectious Diseases (IATF-MEID) has to deem the proposal viable.

Furthermore, ALL Task Force recommendations need a final stamp of approval from President Duterte. Frankly, at this juncture I have not read of any forthcoming decision regarding the “Green Lane.”

Nothing happens at a rapid pace in the Philippines.
