Boracay Island

METRO MANILA – The Department of Tourism on Wednesday announced that top tourist destination, Boracay Island, to soon open doors to local tourist even from areas under general community quarantine (GCQ) after six months of closure.

Tourist from areas under the GCQ classifications will be allowed to visit the island while foreign tourist will still remain prohibited.

Boracay Inter-Agency Task Force (BIATF) endorsed this proposal to the IATF for the Management of Emerging Infectious Diseases. Environment Secretary Roy Cimatu and Co-Vice Chairs including Interior and Local Government Secretary Ed Año and Tourism Secretary Bernadette Romulo-Puyat met with Aklan Governor Florencio Miraflores on Tuesday to discussed the proposed guidelines.

Under the proposed guidelines, travelers from GCQ areas would still be required to undergo  real-time reverse transcription-polymerase chain reaction (RT-PCR) test result 48 hours to 72 hours before the departure.

Travelers will also be advised to go on a strict quarantine after the pcr test until the time of the departure to Boracay Island.

Last July, IATF the age restrictions to local travellers age 21 below and 60 above to visit the island.

The airlines will be allowed to use Godofredo P. Ramos Airport in Caticlan as the only airport to limit and monitor the entry.
