Are you heading to the Philippines soon? If so, you need to register for One Health Pass.
This online system was put in place to safeguard the public health of Filipinos and visitors during COVID-19.
What is the One Health Pass (OHP)?
One Health Pass is an online platform geared towards people who are visiting the Philippines. Also called OHP, this was introduced amid COVID-19 to ensure that everyone traveling to the Philippines is free of the virus.
Before taking a flight to the Philippines, incoming travelers must register their flight information and personal details on their OHP.
This also includes a mandatory electronic health declaration card where they will provide health data, contact details, and other information about their trip to the Philippines.
Thanks to the One Health Pass System, travelers don’t need to worry about accomplishing tons of paperwork at the airport.
This also helps to limit their exposure to people in the area and keeps everyone safe from contracting the virus, especially for travelers visiting friends and family.
The digital platform of OHP is very easy to use. All you need is an internet connection. There is no need to download an app.
The OHP platform provides seamless tracking, monitoring, and record-keeping through a cloud, which is automatically transmitted to your LGU.
Therefore, you won’t have to repeat any of the processes that involve data gathering and verification. All you need to worry about is keeping yourself safe.
Who Needs to Register for One Health Pass?
Foreign visitors and Filipino nationals (OFWs and non-OFWs) returning from overseas must get their One Health Pass settled before they head to the country in all airports.
In short, no one is exempt from getting the OHP regardless of their profession or nationality.
When Should You Register for One Health Pass?
This depends on whether you need to get tested for COVID.
Those exempted from pre-departure test are:
- 18yrs old and above = must be fully vaccinated with at least 1 booster shot
- 12–17yrs old = fully vaccinated
- 11 years old and below = none
For these people, it is advised to complete OHP registration 2 days before your departure. This way, the pass will be ready to use and you can have a seamless travel experience.
Meanwhile, unvaccinated travelers are not exempt from testing and must settle their OHP after receiving their negative test result.
