> A 10-day facility quarantine, with the arrival date being the first day, will apply to all passengers, followed by a four-day home quarantine.
> The allocation of quarantine facilities at designated hotels will be coordinated by Emirates with the Overseas Workers Welfare Administration (OWWA) and / or the Department of Tourism (DOT).
With the lifting of the ban on travelers from the United Arab Emirates by the Philippine authorities, which went into effect in September, the airline resumed daily services to and from Manila, while five weekly flights to Clark and two weekly flights to Cebu are available for Filipinos and foreign nationals to book.
