Airports in Luzon were given, as of now, less than 72 hours to assist all foreigners that are seeking to leave the country.
As announced by the Department of Transportation, outbound passengers are allowed to fly out of Luzon within 72 hours from the issuance of the enhanced community quarantine.
As mentioned in the guidelines:
“Outbound passengers intending to depart the Philippines from any international airport in Luzon shall be allowed to travel for a period of 72 hours from the effectivity of the enhanced community quarantine.”
“Inbound international passengers in transit upon effectivity of the enhanced community quarantine shall be allowed to enter subject to applicable quarantine procedures if coming from countries with existing travel restrictions.”
DOTr spokesperson Assistant Secretary Goddes Libiran told reporters that “after the 72-hour window, all airports in Luzon will be closed.”
Filipinos will still be allowed entry in Luzon airports while some foreigners will be exempt, subject to conditions.
