Retreat Houses: Holy Week In Baguio City

ALERT LEVEL 1 TRAVEL PROTOCOLS IN BAGUIO CITY AS OF MARCH 2022 (EXECUTIVE ORDER NO. 28, SERIES OF 2022).

REMINDERS:

  • All non-Baguio residents coming up to Baguio City are required to register with visita.baguio.gov.ph.
  • For tourists/leisure travelers, you need to wait for your QTPs to be issued before proceeding to travel.
  • For non-resident APORS/essential/medical travelers, registration with visita.baguio.gov.ph is also required but there is no need to wait for the approval of your QTPs before traveling as long as you have uploaded your travel documents.
  • For residents, workers and students, registration with hdf.baguio.gov.ph is no longer necessary. Just show proof of residence/employment/enrolment and vaccination certificates.
  • Why do we need to retain some entry requirement like visita registration, proof of vaccination and negative test results for unvaccinated entrants? We need to monitor arrivals to ensure that there is no overstepping of the city’s capacity limit in terms of traffic and crowd movement manageability and air quality. And as the city has a high vaccination rate, there is need “to ensure mutual protection as a COVID-19 surge is still possible without protection,” according to City Tourism Officer Engr. Alec Mapalo.
