The Ninoy Aquino International Airport (NAIA) clarified that starting June 1, all returning overseas Filipino workers (OFWs) and overseas Filipinos who are residents of National Capital Region (NCR) will be allowed to go on home quarantine after being swabbed in airport.

Meanwhile, for non-NCR residents, the same process are required. They will still go through the RT-PCR test.

As of now, the cost f the test is being shouldered by the Philippine government.

“From NAIA, OFWs will be brought to a government designated quarantine facility,” the statement read, noting that non-OFWs will be brought to an accredited hotel of the Department of Tourism, accommodation will be at their own expense.

“OFWs and non-OFWs shall stay in the facility/hotel until the test result is issued,” the comment added.

If test result is negative, a Quarantine certificate will be issued to them. If positive, the person will be picked up by the Bureau of Quarantine who shall assume jurisdiction over them for close monitoring and/or treatment.

For those who tested negative and has been issued a certificate, they can leave hotel and go home to their residences to continue quarantine. The results of the PCR test will be posted online by the PCG:
