What you need to know about traveling abroad with your VaxCertPH

What you need to know about traveling abroad with your VaxCertPH

Only foreigners from these 30 countries may present their national/state digital certificate as part of the reciprocity agreement with the Philippines.

If foreigners were inoculated from countries which has not recognized the VaxCertPH, they should present WHO-issued International Certificate of Vaccination or Prophylaxis (ICV) as proof of Covid-19 vaccination.

But if the foreigners are spouses, children, parents of OFWs, and they are traveling with the OFWs to the Philippines, the national digital/physical vaccination certificate where they were vaccinated may be presented even if the host country they come from did not recognize the VaxCertPH. Alternatively, they may also opt to get a certificate from the Philippine Overseas Labor Office.

The VaxCertPH App

VaxCertPH App | Philippine Digital Vaccine Certificate

VaxCertPH App is a web portal that issues digital vaccination certificates for fully vaccinated individuals in the Philippines. 

Fully vaccinated individuals can begin applying for unified digital vaccine certificates issued by the national government by September.

The absence of a unified vaccination card has started to cause hurdles for OFWs who need to travel abroad, the most recent of which is Hong Kong’s refusal to accept vaccination cards issued by local government units.

Recently, the Hong Kong government is refusing to recognize the vaccination certificates of individuals fully inoculated against COVID-19 in the Philippines. The government of Hong Kong won't honor the proof of vaccination issued by local government units and the Bureau of Quarantine because it is not "connected to a single source."

This obstacle delays the departure of over 3,000 Filipino workers who were scheduled to fly back to their employers in Hong Kong starting Monday. The Department of Foreign Affairs said the yellow cards would serve as a temporary solution to the problem.

HongKong is open to accepting the World Health Organization-recognized International Vaccine Certificate or "yellow card" issued to fully vaccinated OFWs. However, the Bureau of Quarantine needs to include the traveler's passport number.

Your digital vaccination card will be available via an app for your smartphone in 3 weeks c/o DICT. Here's an early look.

VaxCertPH relies on the data submitted by local government units (LGUs) through the Vaccine Information Management System (VIMS). DICT urges all LGUs to submit their respective Line Lists of vaccinated individuals through the DICT Vaccine Administration System (D-VAS) to aid the rollout of the upcoming VaxCertPH.

VaxCertPH would be fully implemented to both overseas Filipino workers and workers in Metro Manila; with other areas soon to follow.

DICT will have a dry-run on NCR and OFWs in the meantime to perfect the overall process.

The Information and Communications Technology department (DICT) will launch the VaxCertPH before September ends and will be implemented by October.

The rollout of VaxCertPH will begin in Metro Manila and for overseas Filipino workers (OFWs) for free.

The VaxCertPH is different from the Quarantine Bureau’s (BOQ) Yellow Card, which is mainly for travel.

"Siyempre bago nagka-COVID is Yellow Card. So 196 country members, yellow card 'yan. Yellow fever, measles, and whatever. Ang kumplikado po kasi sa COVID-19, mas kailangan niyan ng datos na may first dose, second dose, anong brand, kailan tinurok,” DICT Undersecretary Manny Caintic says.

Vaccinated persons will just have to register on the portal the DICT will soon launch.

For the meantime, the BOQ has also opened express lanes online for OFWs who wish to apply for a Yellow Card.

Overseas Filipino workers (OFWs) will be using government-issued “yellow cards” while the government works on a unified vaccine card.  The Philippine government was in the meantime implementing Bureau of Quarantine-issued yellow cards (ICV), while working on a uniform digital vaccination card equipped with a quick response (QR) code.

VaxCertPH, a digital certificate, is given to individuals who have been fully inoculated against the virus. It consists of the person's name, the date and location where the jab was administered, and the brand of the vaccine.

VaxCertPH App | Philippine Digital Vaccine Certificate
Dalawang linggo matapos maging pinal ang guidance at accompanying technical specifications ng World Health Organization (WHO) para sa vaccination certificates, ang portal at mobile app na “VaxCertPH” na maglalabas ng vaccination certificates para sa mga nabakuhan ay naghahanda na rin mag-live ayon sa DICT.

Ang VaxCertPH ng Pilipinas ay binuo ng Department of Information and Communications Technology - DICT para sa Department of Health (DOH). Ang datos nito ay manggagaling sa isinumite ng Local Government Units (LGUs) sa pamamagitan ng Vaccine Information Management System (VIMS).

The Department of Information and Communications Technology (DICT) aims to launch in September its VaxCertPH or the digital vaccination certificate for individuals fully inoculated against Covid-19. The system for VaxCertPH was ready and has been integrated with the World Health Organization countries, but they want to finish training the local government units (LGU) first before the launch. LGUs were on their third week of training in preparation for any questions or guidance that the public may have or need once the system was in place.

Vaccination certificate, target gamitin sa buwan ng September

The DICT clarified that the VaxCertPH is different from the Bureau of Quarantine's Yellow Card, which is also honored in different countries. 

Vaccinated individuals can apply for a VaxCertPH via the DICT's online portal. The certificate bears the individual's name, the date and location where they received their jab, and the name of the vaccine.

DoH will handle the data, and the DICT will help protect it. The issuance of vaccine certificates will be private key encrypted, and the Health department remains to be the lone issuer of the certificates

WATCH: DICT VaxCertPH app, layuning pabilisin at gawing sentralisado ang lahat ng datos ng mga nabakunahan

THE Inter-Agency Task Force for the Management of Emerging Infectious Diseases (IATF-EID) on Friday moved for the creation of a sub-technical working group (TWG) that will focus on the issuance of vaccination certificates as part of government measures during the Covid-19 pandemic.

"The IATF approved the constitution of a [sub-TWG] to design, deploy, support and recommend relevant policies related to the national certificate for Covid-19 vaccinations, otherwise known as the 'VaxCertPH,'" Palace spokesman Harry Roque Jr. said.

DILG hinikayat ang LGUs na i-upload ang tamang datos sa Vaccine Information Management System (VIMS) sa loob ng 24 oras

Matapos ilunsad ang VaxCertPH program sa NCR ngayong buwan, hinikayat ng Department of the Interior and Local Government (DILG) ang mga lokal na pamahalaan na madaliin ang pag-upload ng kumpleto at tamang detalye sa Vaccine Information Management System (VIMS) ng DICT upang makakuha ng digital vaccination certificates ang mga fully vaccinated na mamamayan.

“Ang VaxCertPH ay kailangan para ma-isyuhan ng digital vaccination certificates ang mga kumpleto na sa COVID-19 doses sa bansa. Kaya dapat siguruhin ng mga LGUs na maipasok ang tamang datos sa VMIS sa loob ng 24 oras mula ng mabakunahan,” sabi ni DILG Secretary Eduardo M. Año.

Sinabi pa nito na ang digital certificates na iiisyu sa ilalim ng VaxCertPH ay magiging patunay sa mga Filipino at non-Filipinos na nagpabakuna sa Pilipinas na may balak maglakbay palabas ng bansa o umuwi galing sa ibang bansa, bilang pagtugon sa requirement ng ibang bansa na magpresenta ng vaccine certification mula sa Philippine Department of Health ang mga nais pumasok sa kanilang teritoryo.

Kasalukuyang nasa soft-launch, ang VaxCertPH ay unang magagamit ng mga OFWs at mga dayuhang maglalakbay sa Metro Manila. Ito ay ilulunsad din sa buong bansa pagkatapos ng pilot period sa NCR.

May 20.9 million Filipino na ang fully vaccinated ng Covid-19 vaccine kung saan 27.1% ang kabilang sa eligible population. Sa NCR, 5.1 million na ang fully vaccinated, kung saan 52.37% ang kasama sa eligible population, habang 8,261,461 (85.50%) ang nakatanggap na ng unang dose.

Binuo ng Department of Information and Communications Technology (DICT) para sa Department of Health (DOH), ang VaxCertPH ay “self-service web portal” na ginagamit ang vaccination data na isinusumite ng LGUs sa pamamagitan ng VIMS.

Mayroon itong request at creation feature ng COVID-19 Digital Vaccination Certificate; gumagawa ng QR (Quick Response) code kung saan authenticated ang certificate; mayroon din itong request feature kung saan ang kliyente ay puwedeng mag-request ng updating ng records kung may maling vaccination details o missing information.

Ayon kay Año, ang VaxCertPH ay sumusunod sa mga guidelines na inisyu ng World Health Organization (WHO) para sa Digital Documentation ng COVID-19 Certificate (DDC).

Sinabi pa nito na dapat kilalalinin ng mga LGUs at ipatupad ang VaxCertPH bilang official proof of vaccination para sa mga lokal na biyahero at magtalaga ng LGU coordinator para sagutin ang mga katanungan at ayusin ang mga record-related issues ng vaccinations.

Sa DILG Memorandum Circular (MC) No. 2021-095, inaatasan ang mga local chief executives (LCEs), DILG Regional Directors (RDs), at Minister for the Local Government ng Bangsamoro Autonomous Region ng Muslim Mindanao (BARMM) na aktibong lumahok at suportahan ang pagsasanay na isinagagawa ng DICT tungkol sa VaxCertPH.

Sa ilalim ng Republic Act 11525 o COVID-19 Vaccination Program Act of 2021, inatasan ang DOH na mag-isyu ng vaccination cards sa lahat ng bakunado. Ang DICT, sa pakikipagkoordinasyon sa DILG at DOH, ay inatasan ding bumuo ng digital process na magsesertipika na ang isang tao ay binakunahan sa bansa.
