PHILIPPINES :: Itinerary in Bohol and DIVING in Alona Beach
Are you already imagining yourself under a palm tree, drinking coconut water and getting up just to take a dip in the crystal clear sea? We love it, but in order to make it happen you first need to know the necessary information about the Philippines visa and travel vaccinations.
Like all other Southeast Asian countries, the Philippines is closed to tourism. Unless you are a resident or an essential worker with an entry permit, you will still have to wait for all this to happen before you can travel to the Philippines.
The requirements are that your passport be valid for more than 6 months and proof of your flight out of the Philippines. To make sure that your nationality is visa exempt, you can check this link.
If you want to stay more than 30 days in the country (like us), you will have to apply for a 59-day visa. For this, you will have to go to the nearest Philippine Consulate or Embassy and present the following documents:
Mexico: Rio Rhin 56, Colonia Cuauhtémoc (I always liked this name, it reminds me of the great Cuauhtémoc Blanco), Mexico City. Where citizens of Costa Rica, El Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras, Nicaragua, Panama and Belize apply.

As for mobility within the Philippines, we are gradually returning to pre-pandemic levels. Being vaccinated (a requirement to enter the country), there are hardly any restrictions. Only for some islands it is necessary to fill in a form.
In addition, this policy is the best for the Philippines because it covers you in case you have an accident not only while walking around Manila, but also while practicing one of the many adventure sports the country has to offer. We will be there for you if, for example, you have a problem while scuba diving or snorkeling or if something happens to you while canyoneering at Kawasan Falls.
It is not necessary to keep any quarantine if you comply with all the steps we have told you about. However, the Philippine government requires you to monitor your symptoms within 7 days of arrival.
Please note that these requirements may change at any time. At IATI we are constantly updating our articles, but before you jump in, it is essential that you consult official sources.
