The Quezon City Office of the City Administrator released a set of guidelines concerning the use of travel passes now that the city is under a modified enhanced community quarantine (MECQ).

In a memorandum dated May 18 and signed by QC assistant city administrator for fiscal affairs Don Francis Javillonar, a travel pass is needed if a motorist or resident wants to enter or leave Quezon City from another local government unit for indispensable and emergency purposes.

The memo also clarifies that a travel pass is NOT required for the following reasons:

  • Going to work – A company ID is needed, and if self-employed, a Baranggay Quarantine Pass
  • Delivery – Delivery, courier and cargo service personnel do not need a travel pass
  • Re-opening of QC Business – No pass or certification is needed to re-open a Quezon City business provided that it is under the list of permitted establishments under the MECQ Guidelines released by the Office of the Mayor dated May 15, 2020. Just present a QC business permit.
  • COVID-19 responders or APOR – Healthworkers and frontliners can present their medical ID or any national government-issued ID like the IATF Authorized Person Outside Residence (APOR) ID.

Under the guidelines, a motorist/resident not covered by exemptions must first secure a travel pass and send the application via email.

Applicants are instructed to e-mail [email protected] and submit a request letter with scanned copies of photographs of the following supporting documents and relevant information: contact number, place of destination, place of origin, date of travel, reason for travel, vehicle model/license no., driver’s name, passenger name, government issued photo-bearing ID of requester and health clearance from a medical doctor.

Processing time for travel pass is three working days from submission of complete application. Applicants will be notified on the pick-up date. A representative or a private on-demand delivery service may also pick up the travel pass on behalf of the applicant.

The city government may deny travel passes for high-risk persons (children, elderly, etc.) not traveling for indispensable reasons, or got those in special concern lockdown or extreme quarantine areas.

For questions, the public may call the City Administrator’s Office at 988-4242 local 1106 and 8405.
