Philippines lifts travel ban on India, 9 other countries from today

The Philippines decided to welcome travellers from India and nine other countries from September 6, according to a Presidential Palace announcement. The announcement came even as the country recorded its second highest number of COVID-19 cases with 20,310 infections on September 3, pushing the national tally to 2.04 million, The Manila Times newspaper reported.

President Rodrigo Duterte approved the recommendation of the Inter-Agency Task Force (IATF) to lift the current travel restrictions on India and nine other countries starting September 6, Presidential Palace spokesperson Harry Roque was quoted as saying by the newspaper.

The other countries are Pakistan, Bangladesh, Sri Lanka, Nepal, the United Arab Emirates, Oman, Thailand, Malaysia and Indonesia, the official said.

International travellers coming from the 10 countries shall, however, comply with the appropriate entry, testing and  quarantine protocols, depending on their approved ‘listing,’ Roque said. (source
