November 19, 2021By Reuters

The Philippines has approved a plan to allow entry soon to foreign tourists vaccinated against COVID-19, its tourism ministry said on Friday, following moves by other Southeast Asian countries to relax travel curbs.

In a statement, the ministry said the coronavirus task force “approved in principle the entry of fully vaccinated tourists” from countries with low COVID-19 cases, adding that guidelines will have to be finalised.
