Iloilo City Hall adopts ‘No QR Code, No Entry’ policy


Starting October 15, the Iloilo City Government will implement the “No QR Code, No Entry” policy at the city hall for efficient contact tracing of coronavirus patients.

Mayor Jerry Treñas in a memorandum issued Tuesday said the city government is currently on the soft implementation of the QR code scanning system for all city hall employees and officials.

“As part of the contact tracing system, city government employees have been issued with their front-liners’ identification cards with QR codes,” according to Treñas. (

With the full implementation of the QR system next week, employees and officials will be required to present their QR codes upon entering and leaving the city hall.

Offices shall designate at least two gatekeepers who will take charge of scanning the QR codes through their phones.

“All offices should have internet connectivity accessible to the gatekeepers assigned to scan QR codes. Offices with no internet connection are instructed to procure their own routers and/or necessary equipment,” the order stated.
