The City Government of Baguio has recently released new TRAVEL PERMIT GUIDELINES for those traveling within the City. This is not to confuse with the travel guidelines for OFW’s and Residents of Baguio stranded in the provinces. These travel permit guidelines are for those who are delivering goods, relief goods, APOR shuttle among others.
The new travel guidelines stemmed from recent events where people are using fake vehicle permits just to get past the checkpoints. So in order to curb the proliferation of fake permits the city has come up with the following guidelines:
1. Private unmarked vehicles being used as service vehicles for (a) food delivery services, (b) errand services, (c) APOR shuttles, and (d) relief goods from private citizens and organizations shall be required to secure a Travel Permit from the Office of the City Mayor;
2. Persons applying for Travel Permits in the food delivery services and errand services must present their Business Permit, or any proof of legitimate business in the absence thereof;
3. Persons applying for APOR Shuttle Travel Permits must present a Certification of Engagement as shuttle service from the business or establishment to which they are providing shuttle services;
4. Persons applying for Travel Permits for relief goods must show any proof to substantiate that they are truly ferrying relief goods to front liners and health workers;
5. All applicants must present a copy of their vehicle OR/CR
6. For purposes of this Advisory, the following need not secure a Travel Permit
· Labelled and marked company service vehicles;
