MANILA — Travelers are required to submit negative test results for the novel coronavirus before they are allowed to board flights to 4 international destinations, the Manila International Airport Authority said Tuesday. 

The 4 destinations requiring negative nasal swab test results include the following, said MIAA: 

  • Abu Dhabi
  • Dubai 
  • Hong Kong 
  • South Korea 

"All affected passengers are strongly advised to get in touch with their respective air carriers to get the details on the implementation of the new regulation," said the agency. 

Passengers without a test certification "may not be allowed to check-in for their flights even if they have confirmed bookings," it added. 

Malacañang earlier this month lifted a ban on overseas travel, as the country geared towards further reopening its economy.
