Here’s the Philippine Holiday guide for 2021 as per PROCLAMATION NO. 986 signed by President Rodrigo Duterte on July 30, 2020.
This will guide you if you have important travel plans for this year. If there are unavoidable travel, please be aware of Covid19 safety and health protocols in the respective areas you will be visiting. It pays to be cautious all the time.
Leisure travel has been affected by the pandemic since last year. With the development in vaccines to combat Covid 19, we hope to be back to “normalcy” by the end of the year.
