The Batanes government has implemented a temporary travel restriction to prevent the further spread of the coronavirus disease (COVID-19).

Acting Provincial Governor Ignacio Villa said travel to the province of Batanes will be restricted. However, the travel restriction will not cover persons who are residents of Batanes Province or who are employed in the province and its constituent municipalities.

Also exempted from the travel restrictions are persons “who require entry to the province to fulfill a law obligation or address an urgent issue of national interest: provided that such persons must not come from areas with documented local transmission of COVID-19.”

The travel restrictions would also require persons to present their documents of residency if they wish to enter the province.—AAC
