Starting September 1, 2021, the Philippine Bureau of Quarantine (BOQ) will strictly require all arriving international travellers to present their ONE HEALTH PASS Quick Response (QR) Code prior to boarding their flights to the Philippines, particularly to Manila, Laoag, and Davao.
The Philippine News Agency reported that all information would be passed on to concerned government agencies such as the Overseas Workers Welfare Administration, Department of Tourism, Maritime Industry Authority, Philippine Coast Guard, and Overseas Shipping Service.
Who needs to get the One Health Pass QR Code?
- All international passengers arriving in Manila, Laoag, and Davao
- Returning overseas Filipinos, Non-OFWs, Balikbayans, and foreigners
- All ages, noting that each child must have his/her own form.
Inbound passengers must first register to the Electronic Health Declaration Checklist (E-HDC) at least five (5) days before the flight to the Philippines to get the One Health Pass QR Code. Continue reading below for the E-HDC registration.
Secure your E-HDC Transaction Number

STEP 2: Fill out the One Health Pass registration form, including your personal information, residence details, travel details, and vaccine information. All the fields in red and with an asterisk (*) must be filled out or answered.
