PAL advises passengers going to PH on use of eArrival Card

Flag carrier Philippine Airlines (PAL) has advised its passengers traveling to the country that a new electronic arrival card or the eArrival Card has officially replaced the One Health Pass as an entry requirement for arrival in the Philippines.

PAL said the new eArrival Card, which is in line with a decision by Philippine health authorities to simplify the arrival process, is easier to fill out and requires less information.

The Lucio Tan-led airline encourages its passengers to fill out the eArrival Card within 72 hours prior to departure from their country of origin to avoid long lines at the airport.

“If you are unable to do so before departure, personnel from the Philippine Bureau of Quarantine and airport staff will assist you in completing and uploading the eArrival Card upon your arrival in the Philippines,” PAL said.

Meanwhile, the flag carrier said other arrival protocols remain the same.
