Cebu Pacific announced on Monday that four more local destinations have relaxed the policy for visitors and no longer have to show a negative RT-PCR or antigen test result.
In a statement, the airlines identified such areas as Bohol, Cebu City, Mandaue City, and Roxas.
Beginning Oct. 25, trips to such areas will only need to be fully vaccinated.
In Bohol, the vaccination certificate from vaxcert.doh.gov.ph must be presented instead of a negative RT-PCR test result.
Government-issued ID and S-Pass approval are also required.
Meanwhile, in Cebu City, the vaccination card must be presented with a QR code and valid ID with a picture and signature.
Suppose the vaccination card does not have a QR code. In that case, visitors can show an official vaccination certificate from the local government unit concerned or vaccination certification from the Department of Health (DOH) -BOQ.
Passengers heading to Mandaue City must present an official vaccine card or vaccine certificate.
