THE Department of Tourism (DOT) announced that starting today (Dec. 2), the current eArrival card shall be migrated to the eTravel platform which may be accessed through etravel.gov.ph.
In its official Facebook Account, the DOT said the move is part of the Philippine government’s continuing efforts to streamline its entry procedures into the country and data collection processes.
“We respectfully inform you of the launch of the 𝗲𝗧𝗿𝗮𝘃𝗲𝗹 platform, an online registration system for travelers to the Philippines and returning residents,” the notice to the public posted on its FB account reads.
Passengers who will be using the former www.onehealthpass.com will be redirected to the new eTravel domain, it added.
On December 5, the old domain of the One Health Pass will no longer be accessible to the public., the DOT said.
The eTravel platform will host the electronic version of the paper Arrival Card that travelers are required to submit upon arrival in the Philippines for immigration clearance.
Starting 05 December 2022, the Bureau of Immigration will discontinue the use of the paper Arrival Card.
All travelers will be required to provide their arrival information and health declaration through the eTravel portal.
Registration on the eTravel platform is free. The public is warned against transacting against any entities or websites soliciting payments and fees of any kind as these are in no way related to the official eTravel platform of the Philippine Government.
