Travel from NCR to GCQ, MGCQ areas allowed starting Sept. 16: DOT

Leisure travel from Metro Manila to areas under general community quarantine and modified GCQ are allowed subject to local government guidelines until September 30, after the region was placed under Alert Level 4 in the pilot Covid-19 alert levels system.

Tourism Secretary Bernadette Romulo-Puyat said leisure travel may resume in these areas and only “if LGU allows” as she cited some specific restrictions by the likes of Baguio City that is under GCQ and Batanes province already under MGCQ but it recently battered by Typhoon Kiko.

NCR residents below 18 and over 65 years old, on the other hand, are not yet permitted to leave their residences for the purpose of leisure travel following alert level 4 guidelines.

The DOT said, “Travelers will also be subject to reasonable restrictions based on age and comorbidities as may be determined by their respective LGU and the reasonable regulations of their destination’s LGU.”
