Guam residents get visa exemption for medical emergencies to the Philippines 


Guam residents requiring emergency medical care have been allowed to enter the Philippines on a case-by-case basis.

The Office of the Governor’s Medical Referral Assistance Office, its Philippines medical referral coordinator, PhilMD, and St. Luke’s Medical Center’s International Business Relations Group are working closely with the Philippines Department of Health (DOH), the Department of Foreign Affairs (DFA), and the Philippine Consulate Office in Guam, to coordinate medical emergency care for Guam residents.

“As we continue to respond to COVID-19, we cannot forget that regular medical care is necessary and sometimes patients need more services than what we can provide here on our island. We want to thank our Medical Referral Office, PhilMD, the Philippine Consulate Office, and the Philippines Department of Health and the Department of Foreign Affairs for allowing Guam residents access to crucial medical care during the pandemic,” said Governor Lou Leon Guerrero.
