Traze App: DOTr Nationwide & Unified Contact Tracing

Starting 28 November 2020, all international and domestic passengers flying to and from any airport in the Philippines must download and register through Traze Contact Tracing, a unified and automated contact tracing application designed by the Philippine Department of Transportation (DOTr).

 

The use of the app is a directive of the DOTr to make contact tracing easier, in support of the government’s efforts to protect the public during this pandemic.

 

Prior to entering the airport premises, all passengers are required to download and register an account in the Traze Contact Tracing app, available in the App Store for iOS devices and on the Google Play Store for Android devices, or visit traze.ph.

 

Meanwhile, passengers without mobile devices need to proceed to the Malasakit Helpdesk at the airport to secure their personal QR code.

 

The Traze Contact Tracing app complies with Philippine Republic Act 1017 or the Data Privacy Act.
