BAGUIO CITY, Philippines — Travel requirements for visitors from Metro Manila and nearby provinces remain even as this city has reopened to essential travelers and tourists.

Mayor Benjamin Magalong said essential travelers are still required to register online through hdf.baguio.gov.ph and tourists through visita.baguio.gov.ph and should undergo reverse transcription-polymerase chain reaction (RT-PCR) or antigen testing.

Antigen testing is conducted at the Baguio Convention Center triage, saliva test in Burnham Park on Tuesdays for those with advance online registration, and RT-PCR swab testing at the Baguio General Hospital. Travelers pay for the tests.

Staycation is allowed only in establishments accredited by the Department of Tourism.

Magalong said contact tracing interoperability and compliance with minimum health standards still apply.

This city remains under general community quarantine until the end of the month.

City officials said tourist arrivals started to pick up this month with the easing of travel restrictions in Metro Manila and nearby areas.
