In an advisory Wednesday, the Manila International Airport Authority (MIAA) said that Inter-Agency Task Force on Emerging Infectious Diseases has allowed “all persons, regardless of nationality, except for Filipino tourists,” to enter and leave the country, “at any time.”
MIAA, however, said that international passengers coming into the country are still “subject to strict immigration and quarantine protocols.”
Passengers coming from Italy and Iran, where there are already thousands of recorded coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) cases, will have to present medical certificates of good health from their respective embassies before being allowed entry.

“Sweeper flights for foreign nationals to bring them to airports will be allowed to continue operations,” MIAA said.
MIAA said only one person can drop off a passenger in NAIA, and must immediately depart after doing so. “The driver should carry with him/her a copy of the airline ticket of the passenger as proof of conveyance,” it said.
Meanwhile, passengers affected by the lifting of the ban were advised to wait for their respective carriers to inform them about the resumption of flights.
