A foreign national traveling to the Philippines who needs to bring prescription drugs (e.g., tablets and ampoules) is advised to check or verify compliance requirements as announced by the Philippine Drug Enforcement Agency (PDEA). Depending on the type of drug and the amount to be brought into the country, the international traveler will be required to submit a number of documents. In general, visitors taking prescription drugs should bring a letter from their physician stating the condition for which they are receiving treatment as well as the prescribed dosage. The amount of drugs brought into the country should also be sufficient for the duration of the visit. For those who are traveling onward to another country, they are advised to have a separate quantity of drugs sealed and declared again before exiting the country.
