As students in the Philippines return to school after their summer break, American students look forward to June and the start of their summer vacation. In the U.S., summer is when we think of taking longer vacations, since children are out of school. In this issue, we provide some resources for those interested in traveling to the Philippines, whether it’s in these upcoming summer months or planning ahead for the popular travel season around the Christmas and New Year’s holidays.

Traveling to the Philippines
Since RemitHome members have strong ties to the Philippines, most of us will find ourselves making a journey to the Philippines. Whether it’s your first time visiting or you’re looking forward to going home after being away too long, it is useful to have up-to-date information to help you plan your trip.
The U.S. and Philippine governments both have official websites with lots of information. The Republic of the Philippines official web portal’s Travel and Tourism section can be a good place to start for general information.
The travel section of the U.S. Department of State website is an important source of travel information, especially for U.S. citizens. And the Travelers’ Health section of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) website provides critical health information for people who are going abroad.
Here are some specific links from these websites that you may find useful:
