Boracay waves RT-PCR requirement for fully vaxxed tourists

The DOT welcomes the announcement of Aklan Governor Florencio Miraflores on the decision to waive the RT-PCR test for fully vaccinated tourists as a requirement to enter Boracay starting November 16.

Boracay experienced a dramatic increase in tourist arrivals in the last 2 months, with a total of 32,452 visitors in October.

We hope to see even more visitors for the months of November and December, given this positive development, and ensure everyone’s safety altogether now that Boracay’s fully vaxxed tourism workers are at 94%, while its entire eligible population is at 70% vaccinated.

The DOT, in coordination with National Task Force against Covid-19 Chief Implementer Carlito Galvez, Jr. and Deputy Chief Implementer Vince Dizon, initiated the vaccination program for tourism workers in Boracay last July.
