Thirty-one countries and territories across the Americas, Asia and the Pacific, Europe, and the Middle East/Africa, have lifted their inbound border restrictions on Filipino travels.

The Department of Foreign Affairs (DFA) released the travel update on July 5, 2020, allowing Filipino travelers inside 31 countries subject to medical protocols for arriving passengers amid the COVID 19 global health emergency.

Before the lockdown to stop the spread of coronavirus disease which closed country borders across the globe, Filipinos enjoyed visa-free travel to 67 countries.

DFA also reported that despite inbound border closures, 78 countries give entry exemptions to Filipinos who are citizens of the destination country and returning residents, OFWs with work visas and contracts, diplomatic or UN passport holders going to post or on official travel.

A total of 138 countries also now allow Filipinos to return to the Philippines, subject to flight availability and other special arrangements.

The DFA also advises travelers to check travel and airline updates given that the Manila International Airport Authority (MIAA) has announced the resumption of international flight operations in NAIA Terminal 3 beginning 12:01AM of July 8.
