Who should get a travel pass in Quezon City?
On May 18, the QC government released guidelines for travel pass application amid the modified enhanced community quarantine or MECQ. You’ll need to apply for one if you must leave Quezon City for indispensable or emergency purposes or if you have other reasons that are not included in the exemption (list below). This is especially important in case authorities or other LGU’s request you to present a travel pass.
Who are exempt from the QC travel pass application?
The following individuals who will enter and leave Quezon City are NOT required to present a travel pass:
1. Employees & self-employed
If you will report to work or attend to business, you do not need a travel pass. You only have to show your company ID (for employees) or your Barangay Quarantine Pass (for self-employed).
2. Delivery personnel
If you work for a company that’s engaged in delivery, courier, or cargo services, you are exempt from getting a travel pass.
3. Business owners in QC who will resume operation
If you have a QC-based business that’s permitted to re-open, you only need to show your business permit if authorities request for proof.
4. COVID-19 Responders
In lieu of a travel pass, you only need to show your health worker ID, hospital ID, IATF Authorized Person Outside Residence (APOR) ID, or any identification issued by the national government.
To reiterate, if you want to leave Quezon City and are not among those who are exempt, you should get a travel pass.
