Filipinos who plan to travel abroad no longer needs to present a negative antigen test before leaving the country, as per the recent amendment of Resolution No. 79, says Presidential Spokesperson Harry Roque.
Filipinos who wish to travel abroad are no longer required to present a negative antigen test for the novel coronavirus before their boarding, Presidential Spokesperson Harry Roque announced on Friday.
The Inter-Agency Task Force for Emerging Infectious Diseases (IATF-EID) has amended in its meeting last Thursday Resolution No. 79 which previously required outbound travelers to present a negative antigen test result as a requirement unless the destination country requires a negative RT-PCR result.
According to Malacañang, the authorities aim to boost the economy after it fell into a slump.
“Wala na pong antigen requirement sa lahat po na bibiyahe sa labas ng bansa,” Roque said in a Laging Handa public briefing on Friday.
The country’s authorities have allowed the non-essential travel of Filipinos beginning October 21.
The Philippines is gradually opening its economy in order to allow more businesses to return its operations, so more people could go back to work, and revive the economy. Restrictions and minimum health protocols are still in place around Metro Manila to keep the spread of the virus in control.
