Cabinet Secretary Karlo Nograles said the government is taking “calibrated” steps towards fully reopening the country’s borders for international travel.

Nograles said the Philippines is not inclined to accept more foreigners for now amid calls to lift travel restrictions for unmarried foreign partners of Filipinos.

“Right now hindi pa tayo handa. Hindi namin sinasabing no as in no, ang sinasabi lang po natin, step by step process po ‘yan,” Nograles said.

International couples separated due to the COVID-19 restrictions, however, may still have a chance to be reunited.

Nograles said the IATF is already finalizing the protocols for the outbound travel of Filipinos.

The government currently allows foreign spouses and children of Filipinos as well as foreign parents of minor Filipino nationals, including children with special needs regardless of age, to enter the country amid the pandemic.

Foreigners with permanent resident or immigrant visas were also exempted from the inbound travel restrictions.
