The Philippine Department of Health (DOH) has confirmed that the Philippines has announced its intention to accept a new medical passport on December 15, 2018.
The department said that the passport will be issued to citizens of the Philippines who are over 18 years of age and over 60 years of life.
In addition to this, the Philippine passport renewal fee will be waived for those who need to renew their medical passport annually.
“The Philippine Government has decided to issue a medical passport in 2018,” a department official said.
Currently, a new health passport can be issued once every six years, and can only be used for travel within the Philippines.
The new passport will also have a special stamping, which will allow it to be stamped by a person who has completed a course of medical treatment in the Philippines and is registered as a medical practitioner.
The stamping will include the name and address of the person who is going to stamp the passport.
It is also important to note that the new passport can only take effect for travel outside the Philippines within a 12-month period.
The Philippines has already issued a medical visa for nationals of the United Kingdom, Canada, Denmark, France, Germany, Iceland, Ireland, Italy, New Zealand, Norway, Portugal, Romania, Sweden, and the United States.
