Travel in the New Normal: Bound for Siargao Island Requirements

1. A Negative RT-PCR Result

For cheaper alternative, we opted for RT-PCR (Saliva) from Red Cross Philippines. Advanced booking via is required a day before the date of scheduled testing. The result will be out in 24 hours and should be within 48-72 hours prior to flight, so pick your scheduled date properly. We chose the SM Megamall drive thru for the location; it was more convenient and faster.

2. Flight Details

Self-explanatory though but you have to keep this handy as this is needed as a part of requirements to bet sent to Siargao Island’s Local Government Unit.

Siargao Airport

We decided to spend our first 2 nights at Tarzan's House. This is the Deck area for in-house guests.

3. Confirmed 2-night DOT-Accredited Accommodation

Good thing is, the lgu only requires a 2-DOT accredited hotel or resort booking. If you are planning to stay longer, book a 2-stay stay first and then look for a cheaper option such as homestay or hostel. For list of accredited accommodation, check Siargao Tourism Assistance Center Facebook Page,

4. Valid ID

A valid id such as SSS UMID, Driver’s License, Passport, among others as this is also needed as a part of requirements to bet sent to Siargao Island’s Local Government Unit.
