The Mactan Cebu International Airport (CEB) has compiled and published a list of hotels that have been inspected and authorized by the Department of Health (DOH) to accommodate returning non-OFWs and eligible foreigners.

Starting February 2021, non-OFWs and eligible foreign nationals entering the Philippines via Mactan Cebu International Airport need to present confirmed booking at a hotel accredited by the Bureau of Quarantine (DOH-BOQ) for a minimum of seven days (six nights).

Following the new guidelines, arriving passengers will be tested for COVID-19 (RT-PCR swab test) on Day 5 from the date of arrival, and the result should be released 24-48 hours from testing.

For non-OFWs and foreign nationals, the cost of the quarantine stay and the swab test must be shouldered by the passengers.

Here’s the list of DOH-inspected hotels in Cebu as of 11 February 2021.
