In my previous post, I wrote about how to get a medical certificate and travel authority in Quezon City. This time I’ll be writing about how to do it in San Juan, La Union. Unlike in Quezon City, doing it in La Union is way easier. You can finish everything in less than an hour.

For those who do not know, when you are traveling outside the province, you need to get a medical/health certificate and travel authority. So we had to secure one when we traveled to Quezon City two weeks ago. Nobody checked our papers though on our way out of the province and when we reached Metro Manila. But even if that is the case, you still need to secure these requirements because you can actually use the travel authority as a coordination letter/acceptance letter of the place you are traveling to when you apply for a travel authority on your way back to the province.

How to Secure a Medical Certificate

To secure a medical certificate, there is no need to go to the barangay hall. First, you need to pay Php 110 at the cashier window 8 or 9 at the Municipal Hall. Tell them it is for the medical certificate. Then go to the health center and show them the receipt. Fill-out the health declaration form. Submit the form, then they will get your body temperature. After that, they will give you a medical certificate.

How to Secure a Travel Authority (Travel Permit/Travel Pass)

To secure a travel authority, go to the police station and show them your medical certificate. They will ask you where you are going, the purpose of travel, travel date, vehicle type, and plate number. And then that’s it. You’ll get the travel authority.

About Author

Hi. My name is Tina and I am a geologist. I quit my job in 2018. Because of the pandemic, I haven't been anywhere since March 2020. I'm currently in San Juan, La Union, the surfing capital of the northern Philippines. Why “I Went Anyways”? Because many times, trips that were planned with friends end up with them backing out but I still go anyway. I set up this blog to share my travel stories and inspire women who desire to go but don’t have anyone to travel with. Just pack that bag and go!

  1. Hello Maam, I just want to ask. Ang situation po kasi is, may susunduin po kami sa Ilocos Sur from SJDM, Bulacan. So before po sana namin sunduin, magsaside trip muna kami sa La Union siguro overnight narin po. Do you know what is the requirements and guidelines for visits lang at meron rin po bang separate requirements kapag tatawid ng Ilocos Sur? Sana po naintidihan nyo yung question ko. Hehe

    I am hoping for your response. Thank you 🙂

  2. Hi, I want to ask when you have to get your med. certificate and travel authority. For instance, I will go to Baguio on January 27, on what date should I secure these requirements?

    1. Im not sure about the validity of med cert in La Union. In Quezon City it is 7 days. Maybe secure the med cert and travel authority the day before your travel date. It takes maybe 1 or 2 hours to secure everything
