      Good afternoon.
      Requirements may vary depending on your destination and their Alert Level. You may contact your airline for requirements. In Dumaguete City: Children below 11 years old will only need to present their birth certificates. Children 11 years old and above will need a negative antigen test.

      Hope this helps!
