Baguio opens to more tourists to boost local economy

Updated: Nov 30, 2021

Baguio City, Philippines – From the 2,000 daily limits of tourists allowed to enter the city, Baguio allowed 1, 000 more to add activity in reviving the city’s economy.

The public Information Office of Baguio City revealed this in a press release this November 27, 2021.

According to Supervising City Tourism Operations Officer, Engr. Aloysius Mapalo, the city is also accepting tourists with blue QR-coded tourist passes (QTPs) issued by local hotels that are permitted to operate in their own triage. These, he explained, passed the standards imposed by the City Health Services Office (CHSO).

However, the Supervising City Tourism Operations Officer said that some days these coming days were already blocked due to the significant number of registrants in the city’s tourist registration platform,

November 27 to 30 are no longer available, the same also with December 3, 4, 10, 11, 17, 18, and 24.

Mapalo extended apologies to “those who we cannot accommodate anymore, we’re still making it safe for everyone.”

Those without QTPs, he warned, will be turned down by the personnel manning the border checkpoints, for it is a must for the tourists to register to the Visita Baguio platform first and wait for their QTPs to be issued.

Baguio City started reopening its borders to fully vaccinated travelers in October this year to spur economic activities which were heavily affected by the COVID-19 pandemic.
