Unvaccinated travelers, on the other hand, are required to take a rapid antigen test. This is given free of charge by the Puerto Galera Molecular Laboratory at the Batangas City Grand Terminal, where people ride the ferry going to Oriental Mindoro. According to Mayor Rocky Ilagan on October 25, this will help increase tourist arrival in their province and make the operation of public ferries more sustainable.
