1. Pa-deploy na ako. Paano mapapabilis ang pagproseso ng International Certificate of Vaccination (ICV) ko sa Bureau of Quarantine (BOQ)?

Magbook lamang ng schedule sa Pagkatapos nito ay maaaring magwalk-in ng mas maagang petsa sa Bureau of Quarantine. 

Kailangan ring dalhin ang mga sumusunod: 

(a) valid ID; 
(b) passport; 
(c) vaccination card, at; 
(d) proof of deployment. 

Maaaring employment contract ito na may deployment date at flight details. Kung wala pang kontrata, maaaring magrequest ng sulat sa inyong manning agency na nagsasabing madedeploy ka na sa nakasaad na petsa.

2. Bakit may bayad na P370 ang pag-issue ng ICV?

Ayon sa BOQ, ang P300 ay bayad ng standard documentation fee, at ang P70 naman ay convenience fee sa paggamit ng online platform. Ang yellow card na ito ay parte ng international convention na napagsang-ayunan ng mahigit 200 na bansa. May format na sinusundan ang BOQ, base sa agreement nila sa iba pang naturang bansa, kaya may bayad ito.

3. Paano kumuha ng ICV kung nagpabakuna ako sa ibang bansa?

Kapag fully vaccinated ka sa ibang bansa (first dose at second dose, kasama na rin ang single-dose Janssen), doon ka rin sa bansa na yon makakakuha ng ICV. Pero kung nasa Pilipinas ka na, mas mainam nang magpabakuna ulit para makakuha ng ICV sa BOQ.

Kung nakapag-first dose ka naman sa ibang bansa at second dose sa Pilipinas, maaaring kumuha ng ICV sa BOQ. Dalhin lamang ang proof of vaccination sa dalawang lugar, kasama ang ibang requirements na nasa #1.

BOQ warns ‘yellow card’ applicants on submitting fake documents

August 16 - Individuals who are planning to get a yellow card or International Certificate of Vaccination and Prophylaxis (ICVP) will face penalties if they submit fake documents, the Bureau of Quarantine (BOQ) warned. “Mahigpit tayo. Meron tayong mga pinapatupad na ways para masigurado na hindi talagang makapag submit ng peke na dokumento yung mga gustong kumuha ng yellow card (We are strict. We have implemented ways to ensure that those who want to get a yellow card cannot submit fake documents),” said BOQ Director Dr. Roberto Salvador in an interview over radio DZBB on Sunday, August 15.

“Pinapaalala natin kapag nag forge kayo, nag submit ng peke, pwede po kayong mademanda at ma-revoke po ang passport niyo o matanggal sa trabaho (We are reminding the public that if they forge or submit a fake document, they can be sued, their passport could be revoked, or they could be fired from their jobs),” he added. The yellow card provides details of the vaccination history of an individual. This can be presented by individuals—who need to travel abroad—to their country of destination.

On Saturday, the BOQ appealed to the public to refrain from applying for a “yellow card” if they do not have a scheduled trip abroad—to ensure that those individuals who have an immediate schedule to travel overseas will have a slot in getting the said document.
