The Philippines will bar the entry of travelers from Grenada, Papua New Guinea, Serbia, and Slovenia in the latest update of the so-called red list for travel.  

“This new classification shall take effect on Sept. 19, 2021 until Sept. 30, 2021,” Palace spokesman Herminio L. Roque, Jr. said in a statement. 

Countries on the red list are considered to be “high risk” for the coronavirus.  

Meanwhile, Mr. Roque said that the following places are now on the “green list”: 

  • China 
  • Hong Kong 
  • New Zealand 
  • American Samoa 
  • Burkina Faso 
  • Cameroon 
  • the Cayman Islands 
  • Chad 
  • China 
  • Comoros 
  • the Republic of the Congo

  • Sudan 
  • Syria 
  • Tajikistan 
  • Tanzania 
  • Tokelau 
  • Tonga 
  • Turkmenistan 
  • Tuvalu 
  • Vanuatu 
  • Yeme. 

Fully vaccinated people from green or low-risk countries are allowed to enter the Philippines. They are required to undergo a seven-day facility-based quarantine, Philippine authorities earlier said.  

“All other countries/territories/jurisdictions not mentioned are on the Yellow List,” Mr. Roque said.   

The Philippine government updated its rules for inbound passengers amid the increasing number of coronavirus infections in the country. — Kyle Aristophere Ateinza
