Nakatakdang bumuo ng bagong polisiya ang pamahalaan para sa mga pabalik ng bansa na kumpleto na ang bakuna, ayon sa Palasyo.
Bubuo umano ng inter-agency group na siyang mangunguna sa paggawa ng bagong protocols para sa mga biyaherong kumpleto na ang bakuna, kasunod ng pinakahuling desisyon ng pandemic task force ng bansa.
Dahil sa mas pinaigting na vaccination effort sa buong mundo, nagpasya ang Inter-agency Task Force for the Management of Emerging Infectious Diseases (IATF) na magsagawa ng bagong polisiya kaugnay nito.
“A small working group is created to study and formulate protocols for inbound international travel of fully vaccinated individuals, and such other protocols that may be applicable to them,” pahayag ni Presidential Spokesperson Harry Roque.
Pangungunahan ng Department of Tourism at Department of Foreign Affairs ang mabubuong grupo.
Kamakailan, nagpatupad ang IATF ng bagong testing at quarantine protocol para sa mga biyaherong papasok ng bansa upang makontrol ang pagkalat ng virus.
Sa kasalukuyan, lahat ng biyaherong papasok sa bansa ay kailangang sumailalim sa 14-day quarantine.
Paglilinaw ng IATF, “The first ten days of which shall be observed in a quarantine facility, with the remainder to be completed under home quarantine in their respective local government units of destination.”
Kailangan din umanong sumailalim sa RT-PCR test ng mga ito sa ikapitong araw at kahit magnegatibo ang resulta, kailangan pa ring makumpleto ang sampung araw na facility-based quarantine.
