    Exemptions include emergencies while en-route, cargo flights, air ambulances and medical supplies flights, weather mitigation flights, maintenance flights as well as repatriation flights. Outbound flights are still available upon approval from the CAAP. Domestic flights remain suspended at Ninoy Aquino International Airport (MNL). Issuance of visas and visa-free entry services for all foreign travellers are suspended. Previously issued visas to foreign travellers have been cancelled. Visas that have been issued to foreign spouses and children of Filipino nationals, as well as Foreign Government and International Organisation officials, remain valid. Foreign nationals are temporarily barred from entering the Philippines. This includes foreign nationals under Visa Waiver Agreements, Special Visas, Executive Order No. 408, holders of Hong Kong (SAR), Macao (SAR) and British National Overseas passports and Immigrant and Non-immigrant visas. Exemptions will be granted to overseas Filipino workers, Philippine passport holders and foreign spouses of Filipino citizens, as well as foreign crew members.
    All Filipino citizens returning from areas where there is community-based COVID-19 transmission will have to undergo a 14-day mandatory quarantine period at designated facilities. All incoming passengers will also need to undergo a COVID-19 swab test. While awaiting results, passengers shall stay in the government designated facilities. Those tested positive will be transferred to a hospital for medical treatment. The Department of Transportation has advised that all persons, regardless of nationality except for Filipino tourists, may now fly out of the country at any time. Inbound international travellers are allowed entry subject to strict immigration and quarantine protocols. Only one person is allowed to transport passengers to the airport and the driver must carry with them a copy of the passengers’ airline ticket. The authorities banned Filipino overseas foreign workers from travelling to Hong Kong, following the lifting of earlier restrictions on such travel. The Department of Tourism has created a Tourism Airport Team that provides a 24-hour service to stranded tourists at airports. Travellers may contact the Department of Tourism or the regional government for further information.
    Ports will continue to be open to cargo ships, no embarkation and disembarkation of crew will be allowed.

    Internal restrictions:

    Until 31 May, Cebu and Mandaue cities (both Central Visayas region) will remain under Enhanced Community Quarantine (ECQ); the National Capital Region (NCR), Angeles City, Bataan, Bulacan, Nueva Ecija, Pampanga, Zambales (all Central Luzon), and Laguna (Calabarzon) will be under ‘modified’ ECQ; and the rest of the county will be under General Community Quarantine (GCQ). The implications of ECQ are: Restricted air, land and maritime movement, except for cargo and essential business. People may only leave their homes to conduct essential business such as purchasing basic necessities. Mandatory wearing of facemasks when outside of residence. Nightly curfews may be put in place by local government units, these vary according to locality. Mass gatherings are prohibited. Mass public transportation as well as taxis and ride-hailing services are suspended during the quarantine. Those with private cars are only allowed to drive for essential purposes such as purchasing essential goods and accessing healthcare services. Private organisations allowed to operate are only those related to food and medicine production and distribution as well as health services. Banks, money transfer services, utilities, telcos, and outsourcing and export firms are also exempt. Under the modified ECQ restrictions, limited reopening of businesses and transportation services will be allowed. While domestic flights and most public transportation remain suspended, public shuttles for essential workers will be permitted. Private vehicles will be allowed, limited to two passengers per row. Only one rider is allowed on motorcycles, bicycles and e-scooters. The government also encourages the use of non-motorised transportation. Gatherings will be limited to a maximum of five people, subject to health guidelines. Movement will be mostly limited to either obtaining essentials or travelling for work in industries that are allowed to resume. Limited outdoor exercises such as jogging and cycling will be permitted only if masks are worn and a social distancing of two metres is practiced. Inter-island travel remains prohibited. The implications of GCQ are: Select workers will be allowed to leave home quarantine and work in phases. Those under 21, above 60, and those in high health-risk will still be required to remain under home quarantine. Mandatory wearing of masks will remain in place. Priority and essential construction projects will resume, as will classes in higher education institutions. Public transportation will resume at reduced capacity. Non-leisure stores in shopping malls will be allowed to resume operations. Other than as listed above, areas under GCQ will be subject to the same restrictions as those under ECQ, until further notice. Inter-island movement between two GCQ areas is permitted. Hotels and other hospitality businesses may only operate during the lockdown under the following conditions: They have guests who booked their stay on or before 17 March. They have guests who have existing long-term leases. They are housing employees of establishments exempted from the lockdown.
    The Department of Trade and Industry has stated that hotels in GCQ areas will be gradually allowed to resume operations. Further guidelines will be issued in the coming days.
    Curfew exemptions will be granted to those involved in providing basic necessities, food preparation and delivery services, energy and telecommunications, as well as healthcare workers, water refilling workers, financial services workers, media personnel, and people transiting to and from work, with necessary identification and certificate of employment.
    Security posture will be heightened to enforce quarantine.
    Several other cities have also implemented further restrictions. At least 82 different localities have imposed differing restrictions and quarantine measures. Below is a partial list of these restrictions:
    Palawan province: Domestic and international flights, as well as travel between municipalities in the province, are suspended.
    Pampanga province: All domestic and international commercial flights via Clark International Airport are suspended until further notice.
    Visayas islands

    Mindanao island
