Filipinos and other tourists headed for the newly-renovated Boracay Island should now prepare their hotel and bookings prior to being given access to the island.

Cebu Pacific has released an advisory that the guests will be required to show proof that they will be staying at hotels which are deemed compliant with Department of Tourism, Department of Interior and Local Government and the Department of Environment and Natural Resources.

Here’s the full advisory:

“We would like to remind guests booked for flights to Caticlan and Kalibo that they will be requested to show proof of confirmed hotel and bookings before entering Boracay island. Only guests with confirmed reservations at any of the accommodation establishments that are compliant with the requirements of the Department of Tourism, Department of Interior and Local Government and the Department of Environment and Natural Resources will be allowed to enter Boracay Island.

“To avoid any possible inconvenience, we strongly advise guests who are travelling or planning to go to Boracay Island starting October 26, 2018 to check if their chosen hotel or resort has been certified compliant and permitted to operate.

“Further information regarding accredited establishments on Boracay can be found at facebook.com/DepartmentofTourism or @TourismPHL on Twitter

The Philippines’ top tourist spot is currently running its 11-day dry run that started last October 15. The dry run is until October 26, which will also be the day of Boracay’s grand re-opening.

The island opened exclusively for Aklan and Western Visayas residents who were given the privilege to experience the rehabilitated area during the dry run.
