“Bermuda is the only country in the Red List, while there are 49 countries in the Green List,” presidential spokesperson Harry Roque said in a statement.

According to previous guidelines issued by the Inter-Agency Task Force for the Management of Emerging Infectious Diseases (IATF), inbound travelers coming from territories under red list are prohibited from entering the country regardless of their vaccination status.

Below are the 49 countries under green list where fully vaccinated travelers qualify for seven-day facility-based quarantine instead of 10 days:

  • Burkina Faso
  • Cameroon
  • Cayman Islands

Roque said “all other countries/jurisdictions/territories not listed above are in the Yellow List.”

According to IATF guidelines, inbound travelers from those in the yellow list or areas that are moderate-risk for COVID-19 must undergo a 14-day quarantine composed of a 10-day facility-based quarantine and four-day home quarantine.

They will undergo RT-PCR on the seventh day of isolation and must complete the 10-day facility based quarantine even if they get a negative test result.
