Updated: Feb 2, 2022

Tabuk City, Kalinga – Around 83 individuals who wanted to enter Kalinga were denied entry from January 1 to January 31, based on data provided by the Kalinga Police Provincial Office.

Acting Kalinga Police Provincial Director, Police Colonel Peter Tagtag Jr., reported that these 83 individuals were not allowed to enter the province due to incomplete travel documents and requirements enforced under the protocols set by the Provincial Inter-Agency Taskforce.

With this, he is reminding travelers to read guidelines and comply with the needed documents when coming to Kalinga in order to avoid being sent back to their place of origin.

“Kapag pumunta kayo dito sa Kalinga, tignan niyo lang ‘yung mga requirements natin at mag-comply,” he said.

Tagtag likewise asked the constituents in the province to refrain from going out if it is unnecessary, “kung hindi naman importante yang lakad niyo, ‘wag kayong masyadong naglalabas kasi nga mataas na ‘yong rate ng infection natin at tsaka sumunod lang tayo sa health protocols.”

Kalinga has been under high risk this month of January and the border checkpoints have been tightened specifically when the province was placed under Alert level IV this January 21 to 31 due to the increasing number of Covid-19 cases.

Meantime, now that Kalinga was lowered to Alert Level III from February 1 to 15, travelers entering Kalinga need to register to; they need to show a vaccination certificate; negative rapid antigen test result within 12 hours before travel if not vaccinated; and if they do not have a rapid antigen test, travelers will be required to undergo the said test.
