The Police Regional Office-6 (PRO-6) is warning the public against presenting fake reverse transcription-polymerase chain reaction (RT-PCR) test results in order to travel.

Lt. Col. Arnel Solis, PRO-6 spokesperson based in Iloilo City, said Monday, October 25, that passengers travelling with fake RT-PCR test results may face charges if they are caught.

Passengers must make sure that their tests were conducted by legitimate medical institutions, he said.

Passengers must not fall victim to unscrupulous individuals selling negative RT-PCR tests result certifications, without undergoing swab tests, he added.

Solis said that both passengers and institutions selling fake RT-PCR tests will face charges.

In August, the provincial government had intercepted inbound travelers with fake documents.

Provincial Administrator Rayfrando Diaz II earlier said that unscrupulous individuals at the ports in Manila are taking advantage of the situation by selling fake negative RT-PCR certifications for P1,000 to P1,500.*
