I am planning to take some medicines when I visit the Philippines. Are there any advisory or limitations as to the quantity and amount?Please be guided by the following guidelines of the Bureau of Customs for foreign tourists who wish to bring medicines, prescription medicines and restricted drugs for personal use during their sojourn in the Philippines: (1) Over the counter drugs are available in pharmacies or drug stores in the country. However, if visitors insist on bringing their own prescriptive drugs, they may do so but only in quantities sufficient for the duration of their stay in the country. (2) Visitors taking prescription drugs (tablets and ampoules) should bring a letter from their physician stating the condition for which they are receiving treatment and the 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 that separate quantity of drugs should be sealed and declared again before exiting the country. Link to this info
