Honduras newspaper Al Punto reported that the Philippines has been granted temporary travel permits for all its citizens in the country.
According to the newspaper, this is a first for the Philippines and will be followed by permanent residency for all Filipinos who wish to leave.
The temporary permits allow the citizens of the Philippines to enter and exit the country, according to the article.
The Philippine Embassy in Honduras said the country will be operating normally as normal and will continue to cooperate with the Philippines government and the government of Honduras to provide assistance to the country in the event of a natural disaster.
The Philippines has also granted visas to Filipinos wishing to visit their relatives in the Philippines, Al Punpo reported.
This is the first time since the Philippines joined the UN Refugee Convention in 2002 that the country has granted such permits to citizens.
This will be the first permanent visa issued by the Philippines since it joined the convention in 2000.
This comes after the country granted visas for its citizens to the United States in March 2018, according the Philippine Embassy.
The US has been a popular destination for Filipinos wanting to visit the Philippines due to its proximity to many of the country’s islands and large population.
According the US State Department, more than 8,000 Filipino nationals have returned home since the tsunami struck in January.
The number of Filipinos seeking asylum in the US has grown rapidly since the wave hit, as they fear they may not be able to return home due to the current economic crisis.
The country is also dealing with the fallout of the coronavirus pandemic, which has claimed more than 16,000 lives since the pandemic started in early January.
It was the second largest pandemic on record, according Al Pun to tally.
In February, the Philippines’ Department of Health reported that 1,400 Filipinos had contracted the coronovirus since it started in January, the highest number since the outbreak began.
The virus has also claimed the lives of at least 21 Filipino nationals and left more than 3,000 others with severe and fatal illnesses.
The pandemic has caused severe economic hardship for the country as more than 5,000 Filipinos have lost their jobs and other income in recent months.
The government is also struggling to cope with the increase in cases.
More than 5.7 million Filipinos were diagnosed with the virus in the first six months of 2018, a rise of more than 25 percent from the same period in 2017.
The death toll from the virus has surpassed that of the flu, which killed nearly 12,000 people in the United Kingdom.
The new travel permit has been welcomed by many Filipinos, who said they would like to visit Honduras again, Al Mundo reported.
