LIST: Philippine Destinations that accept fully vaccinated travelers [No RT-PCR Test result needed]

More and more countries are opening their economy and tourism industry by rolling out a vaccine passport. Now that vaccination rates have gone up, huge crowds started filling outdoor venues and face-to-face classes have also begun.

As we all know, a swab test is expensive and time-consuming. With the help of a vaccine passport, this will help flyers and business travelers to ease requirements and smoothen passport arrival.

Here is the list of some of our favorite destinations in the Philippines that are now accepting fully vaccinated individuals (without presenting negative swab test results) but are subject to change depending on the IATF’s recommendation.
