Nigeria Nurses and others can now heave a sigh of relieve as Philippines emassy all over the world will start issuance of Visa for those coming to the Philippines for NCLEX, School among others.
The country will open its doors wider to foreign tourists with the further easing of arrival requirements starting April 1.
Under Resolution No. 164-A issued on Thursday, the Inter-Agency Task Force on the Management of Emerging Infectious Diseases (IATF) lifted the quota on unvaccinated arriving passengers.
Travelers entering the country now have the option of presenting a laboratory test taken within 24 hours before departing from their point of origin.
Before that rule, these passengers were required to submit a negative RT-PCR (reverse transcription-polymerase chain reaction) test taken within 48 hours before departure.
“Previously, they [had] to show a negative RT-PCR test taken within 48 hours. Now, it is either of the two, RT-PCR or antigen,” deputy presidential spokesperson Kris Ablan explained at a press briefing on Friday.
