Cebu Travel Requirements For Arriving Passengers

Cebu is one of the most historical and beautiful places in the Philippines, offering plenty of breathtaking beaches and heritage sites. And with the easing Alert Levels in the country, tourists can now visit Cebu, whether for business or leisure trips. Nonetheless, the local government units (LGUs) still implement health and safety protocols to ensure everyone’s well-being.
