All foreign nationals, except tourists, with valid visas are now allowed to enter the Philippines, according to Malacañang.

Only those with visas issued as of March 20, 2020 were previously permitted to enter the country.

On Friday, Presidential Spokesperson Harry Roque announced that the Inter-Agency Task Force on Emerging Infectious Diseases deleted the reckoning period of March 20, 2020, in reference to the visas issued to foreigners allowed to travel to the Philippines.

“Sa aking pagkakaalam hindi pa rin po pinapayagan ang mga turista bagamat case-to-case basis puwede silang kumuha ng exemption,” Roque said in an interview with PTV-4.

“Pero sa ngayon, ang pinapayagan lang lahat ng mga visas ng mga namumuhunan, nagtatrabaho, mga kamag-anak ng mga Pilipino, ‘yung may mga asawa na mga Pilipino at may mga anak, halos lahat ng dayuhan except ang mga turista,” he added.

The secretary, however said, entry of foreign prospective spouses is still prohibited.

“Ang ‘love is not tourism’ kasi is tourist visa pa rin, so antay-antay lang tayo. Mukhang malapit na ‘yan pero hindi pa po. Lahat ng mga long-term visas na naissue natin eh pupuwede na pong pumasok, so antayin na lang natin kung kelan papayagan ang mga turista,” Roque concluded.
