The Ministry of Science and Technology (DOST) Region VI has developed a travel management system called Safe, Swift and Smart Passage or S-PaSS to speed up movement control in the country.
The main purpose of this new travel monitoring system is to create a seamless journey for local travelers to return or visit various places around the country.
It also serves to assist authorities in monitoring the movement of persons and in developing information mechanisms to prevent the spread of COVID-19. Don't know how to register? Continue reading below.
Through the application, LGUs can make it easier for incoming and transit passengers to coordinate with their location. The movement of visitors entering the local destination registered under the S-Pass will be tracked through their unique S-PaSS QR code. When scanning the QR code, the traveler's record is automatically logged into the system and will serve as an electronic logbook. Please note that S-PaSS does not replace the contact tracking system such as StaySafe.ph. However, it serves as an additional application that is used to assess the state of travel restrictions.
S-Pass key feature includes:
- Travelers can check the travel policy of their destination LGU
- Apply for a Travel Coordination Permit* (TCP) to the LGU with travel restrictions
- Conveniently track travel history
- Quickly access, store, and print travel documents
*TCP replaces previously requires Travel Authority
(UPDATED) How to register to S-PaSS?
Note that there are multiple registrants who have access to the link at the same time. If the registration link is not available, try the link later.
Step 1: Go to https://s-pass.ph/ via browser (Chrome, Mozilla, Safari, Android Browser, etc.)
Step 2: Check your destination LGU requirements and contact details. If you’re going to other province, make sure to check if you need to use S-PaSS, and your destination LGU requirements and contact details before travelling.
Click “View Details” to see the LGU’s travel requirements (see example below).
You can check out the requirements and phone directory inside the “Are You Travelling” box at the lower left of your screen (for desktop).
You have to register to S-PaSS to be able to generate the Travel Pass-Through Permit (TPP).
Step 4: For new users, create your personal S-PaSS account using your phone number to generate your unique quick response (QR) code. By registering you can also monitor your travel history, which is useful in case you need to conduct contact tracing.
To register, scroll down the home page and select “Create an account.” Provide your phone number and fill in your personal information (see image below).
Note: Do not include the first 0 on your number, just proceed with e.g. 9057 […]
Make sure to review your information before submitting.
Step 5: Once registered, you can now generate your document or permit QR code. Check on whether your destination LGU requires travel documents and its current restriction status by clicking the “Are You Travelling?” found on the left menu bar on your account home page.
Answer the Travel Protocol questionnaire, including whether or not you are an Authorized Person Outside Residence (APOR), lived in an ECQ or MECQ area, your current location, and your destination.
If your destination LGU is unrestricted, the only travel document you will need to generate is the TPP.
However, if you’re travelling to a restricted area such as Cebu City, you will have to apply for a Travel Coordination Permit (TCP) of your destination LGU. Note: Requirements may vary depending on destination LGU.
Note: The DOST is not responsible for the pacing of the LGU’s approval of the traveler’s TCP.
For concerns regarding your travel, see the LGU contact directory at https://s-pass.ph/visitors/contact.
The Intergovernmental Task Force for Emerging Infectious Diseases (IATF-MEID) approved the adoption of S-PaSS on February 26, 2021 as a one-stop application and communication for passengers.
DOST is currently working with the LGU to activate their accounts and to completely overhaul the management system. In addition, the user orientation is in the area of preparation for its full implementation.
The official launch of S-PaSS will take place this Friday, March 26 at 3:30 pm via the DOST Philippines Facebook page with senior DOST officials, the Ministry of Interior and Local Government, the League of Provinces of the Philippines, the League of Cities of the Philippines, local governors, the media and other partners; stakeholders.
