Getting the swab test is too much trouble and too much expense for a week long vacation. With all the hotel cancellations... it seems I am not the only one that feels that way. Travel is a questionable activity right now to begin with. Add to that the swab test and it is just not worth the bother.

Yes! Swab tests are required for tourists to get in to Bohol at this time; according to the Provincial Governors Office...of course things might change tomorrow or the next day! It seems like they are always changing or adjusting the rules every time I turn around...

Part of the requirements and restrictions are set by the DOT Travel Bubble Program.

Actually there are two tests required here in Bohol...one test is required just to get travel authorization to come to Bohol and then another test is required upon arrival! Quarantine is limited to just as long as it takes to get the results from your arrival test, generally two days or less...then the tourists are free to roam the entire island.

I totally agree with you about the situation...its just not worth the hassle!!

At Clark airport coming in 4500, we had exit swabs in San Fernando and paid 6500. In Balanga Bataan they wanted 9000. I have heard of them as low as 4000.
