La Union Travel Requirements During the Pandemic

Last Updated on April 19, 2021 by Tina

Due to the alarming increase of active cases in the province, the Provincial Government of La Union released an Executive Order (EO) effective April 10, 2021, implementing stricter border control policies in the province. The EO outlines the new La Union travel requirements. It shall remain in effect unless otherwise replaced by subsequent policies.

As of April 9, 2021, the province has 1,882 active cases. The City of San Fernando and the Municipalities of Agoo, Aringay, Bangar, Bauang, Naguilian, Luna, and Tubao are under Modified Enhance Community Quarantine (MECQ). Under this category, the movement of individuals shall be limited to accessing essential goods and services, and for work in the offices or industries permitted to operate.

With the new EO, travel for tourism and leisure is not allowed. Also, RT-PCR negative test results are required for anyone entering the province, regardless of origin and duration of stay outside the province. Travelers passing through are also required to show negative RT-PCR test results.

La Union Travel Requirements

All individuals passing through the border control points of the Province will be required to undergo the minimum clinical or health assessment (temperature check and detection of symptoms) supervised by medical personnel on-site. Those who show symptoms of COVID-19 will be subject to testing, isolation, treatment, and monitoring.

Below are the requirements for border entry to the province of La Union. You can access the full EO here. I’ll be updating this post every time a new policy is released.

La Union Residents from Work or Business

  • NAPANAM QR Code
  • Company ID or Government-issued ID indicating residence or any equivalent document showing proof of employment and/or residence
  • Travel Order from the company or any proof of official business with the inclusive date of travel and itinerary
    • Only Delivery Manifests shall be presented for delivery cargoes.
  • Negative RT-PCR test result issued within the last thirty (30) days from testing. (This is not a typographical error. The EO requires 30 days, not 3 days.) You can also show a Vaccination Certificate / Card showing that you have completed 2 doses of CoViD-19 Vaccine instead of showing a negative RT-PCR test result.
    • If none, the resident will be accompanied to the nearest LGU isolation facility for testing. The resident is required to undergo isolation until the release of the RT-PCR test result.
