Philippines’ travel ban in India covers returning overseas Filipinos


- Advertisment -

The Department of Health confirmed that the temporary ban imposed on travelers from Indian covers returning Filipinos. The ban takes effect starting April 29 and will end on May 14. 

Passengers who are already in transit and those will arrive in the Philippines before Thursday are exempted. 

“Napag-desisyunan that even our fellow Filipinos, hindi muna natin papapasukin for this temporary period,” Health Spokesperson Maria Rosario Vergeire said. 

She added that this was imposed to ensure that borders are guarded. 

Several countries have already banned travelers from India, including the US and UAE, as the South Asian country sees record-high Covid-19 cases and the death toll for the past couple of days. 

“Mag-iingat tayo kasi nakikita na natin ‘yung nangyayari sa kanila at ayaw na natin na magkaroon pa ng enabler ang ibang variants na pumasok dito sa ating bansa para makapag-cause pa ng further transmission ng sakit,” she further added.

The Global Filipino Magazine is the only Filipino magazine in the UAE that prints on a monthly basis. Its goal is to champion the success of every global Filipino across the globe.
