    Roque said the Inter-Agency Task Force for the Management of Emerging Infectious Diseases (IATF-EID) likewise resolved that the option of presenting Philippine Overseas Labor Office (POLO) validations as proof of vaccination status is exclusive to overseas Filipino workers (OFWs), and the POLOs shall start accepting applications for validation starting July 5, 2021.

    OFWs who can present international certificates of vaccination (ICVs) may already avail of the green lanes beginning July 1, 2021, provided they comply with other requirements, he added.

    On Tuesday, Roque announced that arriving passengers who have been fully vaccinated against COVID-19 in “green” countries will only have to spend seven days in a quarantine facility upon their arrival in the Philippines.

    The IATF-EID, in its Resolution 123-C, approved on June 28, agreed to shorten the quarantine period for arriving passengers from “green” countries, so long as they have already received the two COVID-19 shots.

    Fully vaccinated travelers in “green” countries must carry their official documentation of full vaccination validated through the POLO or present their ICVs, whichever is applicable, the resolution states.

    Those fully vaccinated in the Philippines are still directed to carry their vaccination card, which should be verified before their departure by a certification issued through the Department of Information and Communications Technology’s Certificate of Vaccination Record Portal or the City Health Officer of the local government unit that administered the full vaccination.

    The Bureau of Quarantine (BoQ), according to the IATF-EID’s latest resolution, is mandated to ensure the strict symptom monitoring of fully vaccinated individuals amid their stay in an isolation facility.

    Fully vaccinated individuals are likewise required to undergo self-monitoring for another seven days after their quarantine period.

    They must also take a reverse transcription-polymerase chain reaction (RT-PCR) test on their fifth day in the quarantine facility for purposes of gathering local data on breakthrough infections, according to the IATF-EID resolution.

    Those who are not covered by the latest testing and quarantine protocols need to stay in a quarantine facility for 10 days and observe home quarantine for another four days.
