  • New Normal Guide For Tourists Visiting Boracay Island
  • Two months since Boracay re-opened its islands, the number of tourists visiting has increased on a daily basis.

    With the resumption of the tourism business on the island, several health and safety measures are being followed to ensure safe travel for everyone.

    Below is a guide for tourists planning to visit Boracay this holiday season!

    • Visit the website and choose Boracay on the Where To page.
    • Fill out the health declaration form and a confirmation instruction will be displayed.
    • Send an email to using the email subject OHDC-FamilyName, FirstName, and attach a copy of the following:
      • Attach a copy of your RT-PCR Negative Result with the date of extraction within 72 hours to the date of travel
      • A copy of confirmed booking slip/form, roundtrip flight/travel details
      • Proof of identification with Philippine Residency

    Do take note that you have to ensure that you are getting your RT-PCR Tests in accredited laboratories here and your hotel booking in DOT Accommodation Establishments with CAO/PCAO here.

    Multiple tourist documents can be sent in one email. Just include a listing of the names of the tourists. Submit your documents at least 12 hours or more before your flight/travel to avoid delays. Send only valid documents as falsification is punishable by law.

    • Wait for the email response (successful or unsuccessful) of the Final Validator. The validation team processes the QR Code within several minutes from receipt of the email and usually responds within an hour. If you have not received any response within two hours, please send another follow-up email.
    • If processing is successful, a copy of HDC with Tourist QR Code will be sent back. Keep the Tourist QR Code with you at all times. Have a printed or digital copy. The QR Code will be used in the ports of entry/exit (land, air, sea) as well as in accessing services in Boracay Island.
    • If processing is unsuccessful,  an email will be sent to you requesting additional requirements or clarification. Please immediately comply with this to avoid delays in the QR Code release.
    • Your Tourist QR Code has an expiry of twelve (12) hours from your accommodation checkout time. If you are extending your stay in Boracay Island, please send an email with a new booking slip showing the extension to before your original checkout time.

    Tourists should also take note that Boracay is requiring tourists to wear a face mask and face shields around the island except only when swimming.
