To easily locate and contact customers, Philippine Airlines asks its passengers to register online and complete its Passenger Profile and Health Declaration (PHHD) Form. It will be easier and safer as you will probably skip writing on paper and using pens at the airport. If you don’t know how here’s our guide on how to accomplish a Passenger Profile and Health Declaration (PHHD) Form for Philippine Airlines.
Please note that this is for domestic passengers of Philippine Airlines; we will update you as soon as other airlines like Cebu Pacific or Air Asia also have these features. Please note that having this would not automatically let you fly with PAL as you have additional requirements needed, which we will also tackle below.
Requirements Needed in Getting your Passenger Profile and Health Declaration (PHHD) Form
- Valid E-mail Address
- Flight Details
How to Accomplish your Passenger Profile and Health Declaration (PHHD) Form
As much as possible, do this 3-5 days before your flight:
STEP 1: Proceed to this link and enter the details needed. Review it and click ‘Next.’ On the next page, you will click ‘Submit.’
STEP 2: Check your e-mail as there will be confirmation for pre-registration as well as the instructions for the next process. Take note of your Unique Reference Number.
STEP 3: Click the link provided on the e-mail so that you can use the PAL Passenger and Health Declaration Form. Your Unique Reference Number will be used.
STEP 4: You will be asked questions like your personal information, address, and activity for the past 14 days. Click ‘Submit’ if you are done.
STEP 5: Check your e-mail for the confirmation that you have already done the form. A QR Code will be sent to you. Please save a soft copy of this on your phone or print this so that it will be presented upon check-in.

- You may need a Negative Test Result before coming to your province

What to do at the Airport or Before Your Departure
STEP 1: Register and fill up the Passenger Profile and Health Declaration (PHHD) Form at least 3 days before your flight.
STEP 2: Secure the required documents so that you could go home, especially requirements by your LGU and/or a Negative Test. There are facilities all over the country that are accredited testing partners of PAL or DOH.
STEP 3: Proceed to the Documents Check Booth at the Airport. You will be asked to scan your QR Code, and your documents will be checked. You will receive a stamp that you are okay to go.
If you are not in Manila, you will pass your documents to the check-in agents who will assess your documents and scan your QR Code. You will receive a stamp that you are okay to go.
STEP 4: Check-in for your flight.
STEP 5: During your flight, facemasks are required as well as face shields that are of good quality. Please also be aware of protocols such as social distancing.
STEP 6: When you go home, please follow the protocols of your Local Government Unit.
That’s our guide for PAL’s Passenger Profile and Health Declaration (PHHD) Form and their requirements. It’s a bit of a hassle, but it is more convenient than writing your name and your contact details over and over; just one typing of code and scanning of the QR Code and you are done. It’s handy for contact tracing as you can see some penmanship are hard to read; some even put on aliases like ‘Bruce Wayne’ or ‘Optimus Prime.’ Good luck on your journey home!
