  • The Tourism Promotions Board (TPB) and the Department of Tourism (DOT) released a decision to suspend 50% OFF RT-PCR for tourists until August 31.

    The announcement was made in accordance to the Inter-Agency Task Force for the Management of Emerging Infectious Diseases (IATF-EID) resolution to move the National Capital Region (NCR) from Enhanced Community Quarantine (ECQ) to Modified Enhanced Community Quarantine (ECQ) that is effective from August 21 to 31, 2021. 

    Aside from the discounted RT-PCR being on hold, the DOT still halted the flights for leisure purposes.

    They emphasized that Authorized Persons Outside their Residences (APORs) are the only ones allowed to go in and out of NCR Plus.
