MESSAGE | FROM THE SECRETARY OF DOT
On behalf of the Department of Tourism, I am extremely elated to unveil this much anticipated travel incentive program dubbed, Bisita, Be My Guest.
This promotional campaign could not be more timely as we welcome back the world into our shores, and herald the unique Filipino brand of service excellence.
Bisita, Be My Guest is the Department’s invitation to our Overseas Filipino Workers (OFWs), Overseas and Former Filipinos to invite their foreigner friends, colleagues and relatives to travel to the Philippines, and experience our country’s beauty and people’s love of country.
To echo our President Ferdinand R. Marcos, Jr.’s words, “there is no warmer, more poignant sight than the smile of a Filipino,” and it is the same genuine smile that we hope our foreign guests would hope to witness in their next trip here.
As we foresee greater participation from our fellow Filipinos overseas and foreign friends, we look to the future with optimism, where tourism is a major pillar for recovery, a source of pride for our people, and a real turning point for the Philippines.
Thank you, and Mabuhay!
