We at Barkota, are one with the government’s directives in dealing with the ongoing COVID-19 outbreak. Just recently, IATF has approved the uniformity of travel protocols. As per IATF Resolution 101 Series of 2021, travel authority issued by the Joint Task Force Covid Shield and health certificates shall no longer be required from passengers. It also says that travelers will no longer be mandated to undergo a Covid-19 test except when required by the local government unit (LGU) of their destination However, it is still best to coordinate with the LGU of your destination as this has not yet taken effect to other areas an/or some LGUs may still need other requirements.
