The Department of Tourism (DOT) on Wednesday reminded tourists that Boracay Island in Aklan still requires a negative reverse transcription-polymerase chain reaction (RT-PCR) test result before entry.

The reminder came after reports circulated on social media that the island has removed the mandatory RT-PCR requirement for travelers.

Aside from a negative RT-PCR test result taken 72 hours before travel, entry requirements in Boracay also include hotel confirmation from a DOT-accredited accommodation establishment issued with a Certificate of Authority to Operate (CAO); a valid ID showing proof of residence in an area under general community quarantine (GCQ) or modified GCQ; and a completed online health declaration form from https://www. touristboracay.com.

While local government units may determine the type of test deemed best to keep their communities and borders safe, the DOT said it defers to the guidance of the Department of Health (DOH) to institute overarching policies and procedures to curb the spread of the disease.

The DOT, meanwhile, noted that a qualified traveler may avail of a cheaper RT-PCR test at the University of the Philippines – Philippine General Hospital (UP-PGH) and the Philippine Children’s Medical Hospital (PCMC).

Through the Tourism Promotions Board, a DOT-attached agency, domestic tourists can avail of the 50 percent subsidized test at PHP900 and PHP750 from the UP-PGH and PCMC, respectively. (PNA)
