INCOMING TRAVELERS TO THE PHILIPPINES NEED TO SECURE EARRIVAL CARD STARTING NOVEMBER

 International passengers entering the Philippines will need now to secure an electronic arrival card as a requirement in the country, the Department of Health announced on its Facebook page.



The move will replace the existing One Health Pass, done via app or website following complaints on the screening system.




Starting November 1, 2022, pre-registration on the e-arrival platform will be mandatory prior to their departure from their country of origin.



The e-Arrival card scan-and-go system aims to ease the travelers processing time. All you need to do is register within 72 hours prior to your departure via onehealthpass.com.pm or by scanning the blue code.




Only travel details, profile, and health declaration will be required from travelers.


The agency said, after registration, a QR code is generated as a scan and go mechanism to reduce processing time at points of entry. This is a free of charge for all travelers and may be temporarily accessed through the official website onehealthpass.com.ph as the new platform is under process for launch.




"Compared to the previous OHP system, the eArrival Card also removes unnecessary information fields, allowing the easier and faster completion of the traveler registration process. For instance, tourism-related fields were significantly cut by half, from 20 items under the OHP to now less than 10 items in the eArrival Card," the DOT said.


One health Pass was implemented in September 2021 as mandated by a resolution from the IATF.
