If you are an international traveler (that is, an overseas Filipino worker, a seafarer, or a tourist planning to travel post-lockdown), it is best to secure an International Certificate of Vaccine (ICV) for Covid-19 or what is also referred to as the Carte Jaune, Yellow Card, or vaccine passport.
This travel document is an official vaccination report approved by the World Health Organization (WHO) and recognized internationally. With the surge in Covid cases due to the highly transmissible Delta variant, many countries have tightened restrictions to curb the spread of Covid-19 infection. One of the intervention strategies is to require international travelers to present a proof that they have been fully vaccinated against Covid-19 prior to their entry to a country of destination.
Pre-Covid, there were already countries that require vaccine certificates for certain infectious diseases like polio, malaria, meningitis, or yellow fever. In the Philippines, the office tasked to prevent the spread of infectious diseases is the Department of Health’s Bureau of Quarantine (BOQ), which has been around since the 1940s.
Recently, the bureau has made it easy for those who would like to secure or update their ICV through an online booking system that can be accessed thru boq.pisopay.com.ph. BOQ also developed a new format for the ICV with a unique QR code, which allows the verification of the authenticity of the said certificate.
最近，该局为那些希望通过在线预订系统保护或更新其 ICV 的用户提供了便利，该系统可以通过 boq.pisopay.com.ph 预订系统访问。BOQ 还为 ICV 开发了一种带有唯一二维码的新格式，该格式允许验证上述证书的真实性。
Priority is currently given to those who were fully vaccinated for Covid-19 with either Pfizer, AstraZeneca, J&J, Moderna, Sinopharm, and Sinovac jabs and already have overseas contracts or flight booking confirmations.
目前优先考虑那些与辉瑞、阿斯利康、强生、 Moderna、Sinopharm和Sinovac 2019冠状病毒疾病接种疫苗并已获得海外合同或机票预订确认的人。
