DFA advised Filipinos abroad to postpone trips home over new COVID-19 variant


 Overseas Filipinos planning to return to the Philippines must consider postponing their trips according to the Department of Foreign Affairs (DFA).


The Philippine government widened its list of countries with restricted travel due to the fast-spreading new COVID-19 variant which started at the United Kingdom.


The DFA said in statement that it would be better for Filipinos to reconsider travelling to the Philippines until just the end of travel restrictions to avoid any inconvenience.


“The DFA once again calls for all travelers to the country to carefully reconsider their travel plans, including postponing their trips until after the end of the travel restrictions to avoid personal inconvenience and possible additional expenses as well as help prevent the incidence of the new COVID-19 variant in the country,” the DFA statement said.


The agency also reminded passengers of a limited number of quarantine facilities accredited by the Department of Health.
