Philippines: 10-days quarantine for returning OFWs from countries without ban


Returning overseas Filipino workers (OFWs) coming from countries without a travel ban are mandated to undergo a 10-day quarantine. 

Meanwhile, according to the Palace, those OFWs from the UAE, Oman, India, Sri Lanka, Pakistan, and Nepal must undergo a 14-day quarantine protocol. They are also required to take a PCR test within 48 hours before departing from these countries. Filipinos from these countries are only allowed to enter the Philippines subject to strict preventive measures or those who are part of repatriation programs being organized by the government and non-government organizations. 

Presidential Spokesperson Harry Roque said that fully vaccinated OFWs will only undergo a seven-day quarantine. This rule only applies to Filipinos vaccinated in the Philippines. 

He cited Inter-Agency Task Force (IATF)’s Resolution No. 119 that all arriving fully vaccinated individuals, who have been vaccinated in the Philippines, will be required to undergo a seven-day facility-based quarantine upon arrival. 

“This does not cover foreign nationals, overseas Filipino workers (OFWs) and Filipinos who have been fully vaccinated abroad. They have to undergo the regular quarantine and testing protocols, which is, to complete a 10-day facility-based quarantine,” he added.
