RT-PCR test result scraped for tourists from Panay Island and Guimaras entering Boracay Island

Good News! Fully vaccinated tourists coming from Panay Island and the Guimaras Province no longer need to present a negative RT-PCR test result when entering Boracay Island.

Effective October 26, 2021, travelers from Capiz, Guimaras, Iloilo provinces, and the regional capital of Iloilo City may submit a VaxCertPH Covid-19 Vaccination Certificate instead of a negative RT-PCR test.

Boracay tourists can download the said certificate at https://vaxcert.doh.gov.ph.

According to the advisory from the Aklan Provincial Government, in case the vaccination certificate is unavailable, travelers must still present a negative RT-PCR test result with a validity of 72 hours from the day of extraction and other requirements.

Meanwhile, authorities don't require a VaxCert from kids if they're traveling with their families since they are not vaccinated yet.

Furthermore, the same advisory said that curfew hours decreased; from the previous curfew hours of 8:00 pm to 4:00 am, it is now from 9:00 pm to 4:00 am.

Earlier, the Department of Tourism (DOT) said RT-PCR testing would be waived for other fully vaccinated travelers once Boracay Island reaches a 100% vaccination rate among its residents, as agreed with Aklan Gov. Florencio Miraflores.

The DOT projected that the entire eligible population of the Island would be vaccinated within October.
