S-Pass is an online travel management system developed by the Department of Science and Technology (DOST) in line with the Inter-Agency Task Force on Emerging Infectious Diseases (IATF) Resolution No. 101.
If you plan on traveling, this website will allow you to check the latest travel policies implemented by the local government units (LGUs) of your destinations and whether or not you need to secure travel permits.
Your destination may be classified as RESTRICTED, UNRESTRICTED or UNRESTRICTED BUT PASSING THROUGH RESTRICTED.
- RESTRICTED – you need to create an S-Pass account to apply for a Travel Coordination Permit (TCP)
- UNRESTRICTED BUT PASSING THROUGH RESTRICTED – you need a Travel Pass-Through Permit (TPP)
- UNRESTRICTED (but not passing through any restricted area) – NO NEED for an S-Pass account, TCP or TPP.
You can go to the S-Pass website to see the current policy of the province you’re planning to visit. Below is a guide on how you can create an S-Pass account.
