Puerto Princesa, Palawan no longer requires the mandatory facility quarantine and home quarantine under Alert Level 2 for inbound travelers. However, they would still need to coordinate with the S-PaSS system and comply with the required documents. [1]

Just recently, the whole Palawan province and Puerto Princesa has been downgraded to Alert Level 2, which took effect on February 16 until the end of the month. Under this lower alert level, indoor capacity has been increased to a maximum capacity of 50% and outdoor capacity at 70%.

Travel restrictions have also been updated to less strict regulations and protocols.

Airline travel restrictions have been eased, and inbound travelers are no longer required to undergo the mandatory quarantine mandated by the city’s Inter-Agency Task Force (IATF). Whether inbound travelers are fully vaccinated, unvaccinated, or partially vaccinated, they are no longer required to stay in a quarantine facility nor undergo home quarantine. But for the unvaccinated and partially vaccinated, they shall be exempted from staying in a quarantine facility or undergo home quarantine only if they can enter the travel ports of their area of origin.

Negative RT-PCR test results administered 48 hours before travel will still be required from inbound travelers who are unvaccinated or partially vaccinated, added Yap in a live briefing. As for the fully vaccinated, a negative antigen test result is also required taken 24 hours before their travel date.

Under a more relaxed alert level status, Alert Level 2 includes eliminating the liquor ban and updating the curfew hours from 12:00 AM to 5:00 AM. Contact sports, cockfighting, gatherings, and entertainment activities are also allowed under Alert Level 2.
