The Department of Science and Technology has developed a travel management system that can facilitate local travel where the public can access information on travel restrictions implemented by different local government units.
Called the S-PaSS (Safe, Swift and Smart Passage), it will facilitate a safe, swift, and smart coordination of travels to the destination LGUs. Travelers can check the travel restrictions of their destination through https://s-pass.ph.
If the final destination has restricted travel policy, the traveler can apply for a Travel Coordination Permit (TCP) through the S-PaSS. The TCP replaces the previously required travel authority.
If the final destination of the traveler is classified as unrestricted but will have to pass through restricted LGUs before reaching their final destination, travelers may also apply for a Travel Pass-Through Permit (TPP) aside from securing the TCP required by the place of final destination.
To use the S-PaSS, travelers just need to register using their personal mobile number. They have to check the documents required by the LGU they are going to, apply for the TCP, and submit it through the website. Most LGUs have contact numbers for easy coordination and verification of the status of approval of their TCP. However, the length of time for the approval of the TCP may vary depending on the LGU where the traveler is going to.
The DOST, as the developer of the system, is not responsible for how long or how fast the LGUs will approve the traveler’s TCP.
The S-PaSS will also provide LGUs real-time monitoring of all incoming travelers and travel history.
S-PaSS was institutionalized by the Inter-Agency Task Force for Emerging Infectious Diseases through Resolution 101 passed last Feb. 26 as a one-stop communication and coordination platform for travelers and LGUs.  DOST is now coordinating with LGUs for the activation of their accounts and for the full roll-out.  Orientation and trainings for LGUs are being conducted for the full implementation of S-PaSS. – Press release
