Travellers heading to Bohol will only need the proof of full vaccination as a requirement and a government-issued identification card for entry.

But local carriers Philippine Airlines and Cebu Pacific said that the proof of vaccination should be a certificate from the website, adding that the document will be in lieu of the negative RT-PCR (Reverse Transcription-Polymerase Chain Reaction) result.

As an additional requirement for Bohol entry, travelers should also secure an approval via the S-Pass which is a requirement of the local government unit.

Cebu City earlier waived the RT-PCR result and decided to accept vaccination card with QR Code and a valid identification card.

If the vaccination card has no QR code, they need certification from their local health units.

In Mandaue City, all arriving guests with vaccination card or vaccination certificate will be exempted from presenting a negative RT-PCR result.

Roxas City also followed suit.

But it was clarified that a person is considered fully-vaccinated at least 14 days after having received the second dose in a two-dose series, or at least 14 days after having received a single-dose vaccine.
