    We were in the process of relocating the DI website to a new server when we lost power overnight. Unfortunately we were unable to restore the server until now. The transfer has been completed and currently 2 web servers are serving the DI site - the old server displays this message. As DNS caches update, users will begin to filter onto the new server - you will know this has happened by the absence of this notice. Please note - any new posts posted to this server will not make it onto the new server.

    Hi guys: Has anyone done the run to Mandaue from Dumaguete for the data capture at the immigration office recently? Would be very grateful for any info on the documents required for travel there and back! Plan on taking my own car. Many thanks!

    Can't answer you really, but I imagine it might make a difference if you intend to drive back the same day (not sure that's doable with the current ferry schedule).
    However, a quick search turned up a brand-new regulation signed yesterday by the provincial governor, which says anyone above 65 can't travel (the exception for obtaining "essential services" might come to your rescue though, assuming the 13a visa stuff qualifies as essential):

    This latest edict sounds more strict than the ECQ at the start of the pandemic. They haven't made any provisions for issuing passes of any sort.
    During the ECQ last year a directive came from Manila that prevented a single municipality from stopping people from passing through.
    Hopefully revision 2 will be issued soon.

    I think the
    I think the link posted is old. That was the rules at the beginning of the pandemic. Here is a recent post from Yes Thee Best Dumaguete FB page:

    Effective Oct. 23, 2021, travelers will no longer be required to show an S-PASS (Safe, Swift and Smart Passage) to enter Negros Oriental, an advisory from the Provincial Inter-Agency Task Force said tonight, Oct. 20.
    However, negative test results are still required prior to entering the province.
    Unvaccinated travelers are required to present a negative RT-PCR test result valid for 72 hours. Fully vaccinated individuals need to present a negative antigen test result valid for 48 hours along with their vaccination card.
    Governor Roel Degamo is expected to release a new executive order
    (EO) on this development. Airlines, sea and land transport companies have three days to adjust to the new order.

    I hope that post on the 14 day quarantine is the old one as I have two relatives in Mindanao currently who soon will be returning to NegOr.

    I don't get too involved with S-PASS and other documents because I don't go anywhere (unless I have to have one to travel 12 inches to my dustbin) but do you know why they make the region Alert Level 4 on the 20th and then remove the S-PASS 3 days later?

    Having a higher number of cases per capita than its neighbors, Negros Oriental is less concerned about people who travel into the province.

    The surrounding neighbors should be concerned but they are relatively lax. Negros Occidental only requires a vaccination card to travel into the province. In my opinion, now that Negros Oriental is worse than anywhere else the travel restrictions should be reduced to anyone who has been vaccinated.
