Traveling to Palawan in the New Normal: A Guide

Heading to the beautiful island of Palawan? Here are the step-by-step guidelines that you should follow for a safe and stress-free trip:

1. Get tested.

Aside from completed vaccination cards, the Philippine government requires local tourists who are 12 years old and above to present their negative antigen test results based on a nasopharyngeal or oropharyngeal swab taken 24 hours before arrival. The antigen test must only be taken in DOH-accredited laboratories. Make sure to have the accredited testing facility email your test result to the city’s Internal Management Team (IMT) at imtppccovidresult@gmail.com.

(*Note: Residents of Palawan are just required to present their StaySafe.ph QR code upon arrival.)

2. Book your plane tickets.

Once you receive your negative antigen test result, it is time to book your flight. Make sure your flight schedule is within 24 hours from the time you took your test to the time you reach Puerto Princesa Airport (PPS).

3. Make a hotel reservation.

You may book your suite in Astoria Palawan through this website. Just add your check-in details in the header above and click “Book now.” You may also send our Sales Team a message via +63 998-9613-419, +63 998-9613-422, or rsvn@astoriapalawan.com.

4. Apply for an S-Pass.

5. Wait for your health declaration card with tourist QR code.

If there is no issue encountered, you should receive your HDC (Health Declaration Form) with Palawan Tourist QR Code within an hour from the time you registered. Have a printed and digital copy with you at all times.

6. Apply for a contact-tracing QR code (QT-ID).

Download the StaySafe.ph app, or visit their website at www.staysafe.ph. Kindly register using your active mobile number or Facebook account. Make sure to have a digital or printed copy of the generated code.
