What is One Health Pass Philippines?
One Health Pass is a digital solution that simplifies the process of obtaining and managing travel processes and data collection, including health insurance for people travelling to and from the Philippines. It was piloted in August and is now fully implemented.

As a result, keep these items on hand for both your departure and arrival.
