03 March 2020 — The Department of Foreign Affairs (DFA) informs Filipinos traveling to and from South Korea that there are temporary travel restrictions imposed on them to help curb the spread of COVID-19.

The travel restrictions, which are based on Resolutions No. 8 and 9 of the Inter-Agency Task Force for the Management of Emerging Infectious Diseases (IATF-EID) dated 26 February and 03 March 2020, respectively, include:

FOR TRAVELERS ENTERING THE PHILIPPINES

- Temporary ban of entry into the Philippines of any person who has been to the North Gyeongsang Province (including Daegu City and Cheongdo County) of South Korea within 14 days immediately preceding their arrival in the Philippines.

It is to be noted that Filipino citizens, including their foreign spouses and children, holders of Permanent Resident Visas, and holders of Diplomatic Visas issued by the Philippine Government are exempted from this temporary travel ban but must follow the health protocols of the Department of Health.

FOR TRAVELERS GOING TO SOUTH KOREA

- Temporary travel restriction for all Filipinos traveling into North Gyeongsang Province (including Daegu City and Cheongdo County) of South Korea.

- All Filipinos going to South Korea (with the exception of North Gyeongsang Province including Daegu City and Cheongdo County) are allowed to proceed with their journey provided that they shall execute and sign a declaration signifying their knowledge and understanding of the risks involved in proceeding with their trip. All travelers shall likewise be handed out a healthy advisory pamphlet upon departure.

- Overseas Filipino Workers (OFWs), students studying in South Korea, and those with Permanent Resident status are not restricted to travel into South Korea.

- OFWs (whether returning or newly-hired) as well as dependents of permanent residents are allowed to return to South Korea but they must also execute a Declaration signifying their knowledge and understanding of the risks involved upon their return to the country.

The Philippine Embassy in Seoul is closely monitoring the situation and coordinating with the Filipino community in ensuring the safety of our kababayans.
