On Wednesday, the Department of Tourism (DOT) announced that the Philippines looks forward to Chinese tourists returning for leisure travel, demonstrating its preparedness to welcome the highly sought-after market.

The announcement followed a clarification from the Chinese Embassy in Manila that the Philippines is not on the travel ban list due to offshore gaming operations.

Before the pandemic, China was the nation’s main source market; in 2019, the Philippines welcomed over 1.7 million visitors from China.

According to Christina Frasco, secretary of tourism for the Philippines, these numbers alone show the “friendly relationship that exists between the Chinese people and the Philippines, particularly on the aspect of tourism.”

In light of its current outbound travel limitation on its residents, China has not yet reopened its borders to outbound leisure travel by its nationals, according to the spokeswoman. As a result, only 17, 454 visitors to the Philippines are expected in 2020, 6,615 in 2021, and 23,482 in 2022.

“We look forward with excitement to restoring Chinese leisure travel to our Philippine locations,” she continued. “As the Department of Tourism continues to work on supporting the Marcos administration’s mission of enhancing the enabling mechanisms for tourism in the country.
