Boracay is one of the first major tourist destinations in the Philippines that reopened. But although the country’s most popular beach is now ready to welcome visitors, you still have to make sure you meet all the requirements.

If you are planning to book a trip to Boracay or Kalibo, here are the documents you need to possess to be allowed to travel.

Note: Because travel policies these days change frequently and quickly, make sure to double check the government restrictions and regulations of both the national government and the local government prior to your bookings.

For Tourists or Leisure Travelers

    1. For Vaccinated Tourists: Proof of Vaccination. This can be any of the following:
      – VaxcertPH certification
      – locally-issued vaccination card with contact details of vaccination center
      – International Certification of Vaccination and Prophylaxis (ICV) from WHO
      – vaccination card or certificate issued abroad
    2. For Unvaccinated or Partially Vaccinated Tourists: Negative RT-PCR test. Must be taken within 72 hours prior to departure. RT-PCR tests must be done by any of the accredited laboratories. You can find the list of accredited labs here.
    3. For Children 12 years old or under: Certificate of Undertaking. Here’s a template.
    4. Confirmed hotel or resort booking on the island. Make sure that you book a hotel with Certificate of Authority to Operate/Provisional Certificate of Authority to Operate from the Department of Tourism. You can check the list of hotels here: LIST OF OPERATIONAL HOTELS IN BORACAY.
    5. Roundtrip transportation details
    6. Valid ID (for local tourists) or passport (for foreign tourists)
    7. Online Health Declaration Card (OHDC). Fill it out online. Go to Tourist Boracay website. Accomplish the form. Take a screenshot of the confirmation page because you’ll need it.
    8. Tourist QR Code and copy of your Health Declaration Card. These will be sent to your e-mail if the processing is successful. Print or keep a digital copy of your Tourist QR Code and keep it with you at all times when you are in the island.

    You might also want to get an S-Pass Travel Coordination Permit (TCP). It is NOT a requirement when getting a Tourist QR Code but airports or airlines might ask for this so the provincial government of Aklan recommends securing one for easier, hassle-free journey. To apply for a TCP, go to s-pass.ph or visit this S-Pass tutorial page for more info.

    For tourists coming from Western Visayas: also submit the following:

    • If driving private vehicle, photo of the vehicle plate
    • If taking public transportation, accomplished Certificate of Undertaking. Template here.

    Note: Your Tourist QR Code is valid only up to 12 hours from from your checkout time. If you plan to extend your stay, send an email of a new booking slip to touristboracay@gmail.com prior to your initial checkout time.
