La Union's local government on Wednesday released guidelines for non-residents and visitors ahead of its reopening to tourists as travel restrictions ease a year after quarantines.

The new guidelines will take effect on Mar. 8. For now, only tourists from Region 1 and Baguio City are allowed entry in La Union. A separate Executive Ordering detailing specific requirements and guidelines for non-residents on leisure travel will be issued.

While that's not out yet, you can prepare forms and documents beforehand.

Here's what you need if you're traveling to La Union.

NAPANAM QR Code

You'll need a NAPANAM QR Code, which will be presented at border control points. You can register on the NAPANAM website to get your unique code.

The code may take 48 hours to generate and be sent to you. Citizens are encouraged to fill out the form at least three days before their travel date to ensure that their one-time registration pushes through.

Government ID

A government-issued ID needs to be presented to ascertain your identity. Examples of these are a passport, driver's license, SSS ID, GSIS ID, PRC ID, or a voter's ID, to name a few.

Other things you need to know:

Wearing of face masks plus shields is required in the whole province of La Union. Physical distancing, frequent hand disinfection, and cough etiquette are also mandatory.

If you're from a high-risk level area—GCQ or higher quarantine classification—you'll be required to present a negative RT-PCR test issued within the last 7 days.

Only RT-PCR test results will be accepted. Rapid tests and antigen tests will not be honored.

Much like everywhere else in the country, travelers need to submit themselves to a clinical assessment at border control points. Medical personnel onsite will check temperatures and possible symptoms.

Those who exhibit COVID-19 symptoms will be confined for testing, isolation, treatment, and monitoring.
