Passengers just transiting the Philippines will not be required to undergo quarantine if they have been from banned countries, said Bureau of Immigration (BI) Commissioner Jaime Morente.

“They will be considered transiting if they merely stayed in the airport, were just there for a layover, and were not cleared for entry by immigration authorities in the said countries,” said Morente in a statement.

The government currently banned the entry of foreigners who have been to 28 countries where the variant of the COVID-19 virus has been found to be present.

The ban imposed by government will last until Jan. 15.

On the other hand, Morente renewed his assurance to Filipinos who have been to these 28 countries that they will be allowed entry into the Philippines during the period.

However, Morente reminded that returning Filipinos will have to be referred to the airport’s one stop shop to “undergo an absolute facility-based 14-day quarantine period, notwithstanding a negative RT-PCR result.”
