The Department of Tourism has signed a deal with the Philippine General Hospital to subsidize the COVID-19 swab tests of qualified tourists, the agency said on Tuesday.

The DOT said it will subsidize 50 percent of the P1,800 cost of RT-PCR testing cost administered by the PGH.

A negative RT-PCR test result is a requirement to visit many destinations around the country.

About 11,000 qualified domestic tourists will be able to get their RT-PCR test from the PGH, the DOT said.

The program is meant to restore confidence in safe travel and support the gradual reopening of specific domestic travel destinations, the DOT said.
