LIST of Online QR Code Registration in Davao Region and Soccsksargen

If you're planning a trip to Davao Region and SOCCSKSARGEN, you'll need a quick response (QR) code to enter the provinces and establishments there.

Davao Region is a Philippine administrative region known as Region XI that is located in Mindanao's southeastern region and consists of five provinces: Davao de Oro, Davao del Norte, Davao del Sur, Davao Oriental, and Davao Occidental

Meanwhile, SOCCSKSARGEN is designated as Region XII and composed of four provinces and one highly urbanized city: Cotabato, Sarangani, South Cotabato, Sultan Kudarat provinces, and General Santos City.

Several LGUs in Davao region have created QR Code systems in which residents and non-residents must register to ensure that their movements are tracked for contact tracing purposes and to prevent the spread of COVID-19. In SOCCSARGEN, all the provincial governments are utilizing the South Cotabato COVID-19 Contact Tracing System (SC-CCTS).

The list of the QR Code registration portals in the Davao Region and SOCCSKSARGEN can be found here:

Davao Region

Davao Region has several contact tracing systems developed by some of its local government units (LGUs). The most popular is the Safe Davao QR Code, which is used by over 1 million individuals. Other contact tracing systems include DCIMS, ITRAC SAMAL, and the DavOr QR Code system.

Davao City

Individuals who live, work, or visit Davao City can generate a quick response (QR) code using the Safe Davao QR Code portal. 

The said QR Code system is used to track the movement of individuals in Davao City. Establishments must also register in order to obtain the scanner app, which is used to scan individuals' QR Codes.

Davao Del Norte Province

Local government units (LGUs) in the Province of Davao del Norte (DavNor) are required to use the "DavNor COVID-19 Information Management System (DCIMS)", which is the province's official QR Code system.  Residents and non-residents in Davao del Norte are required to have their own QR code, which they must present when entering establishments in the province.

The municipalities of Asuncion, Braulio E. Dujali, Carmen, Kapalong, New Corella, San Isidro, Santo Tomas, and Talaingod, as well as the cities of Panabo, Samal, and Tagum, are required to use the said app for contact tracing and mitigating the spread of the COVID-19 disease.

Island Garden City of Samal

The official COVID-19 contact tracing system is ITRAC SAMAL, which is used by Samal City. Despite being a component city of Davao del Norte (DavNor) Province, LGU Samal requires individuals to use the said QR code system as their primary contact tracing system, rather than DavNor's COVID-19 QR app.

Davao de Oro Province

The Province of Davao de Oro implemented the South Cotabato Covid Contact Tracing System (SC-CCTS) as its contact tracing system for all local government units (LGUs) under its jurisdiction.

This means that individuals residing in, working in, or visiting municipalities throughout the province (particularly Compostela, Laak, Mabini, Maco, Maragusan, Mawab, Monkayo, Montevista, Nabunturan, New Bataan, and Pantukan) must register for a QR online through the SC-CCTS portal.

Davao del Sur Province

The Province of Davao del Sur also adopted the South Cotabato Covid Contact Tracing System (SC-CCTS) as its contact tracing system, which allows individuals to register online for a QR code to be used throughout the province.

By implementing the SC-CCTS as its online contact tracing system, the Province of Davao del Sur is able to track individuals' movements across the province and quickly locate individuals suspected of COVID-19 risk.

Davao Occidental Province

Davao Occidental is the latest province in the Philippines through Republic Act No. 10360. Unlike the other provinces in the Davao Region, the Province of Davao Occidental uses the official contact tracing app of the Philippines, StaySafe. StaySafe is a joint project of the Interagency Task Force on Emerging Infectious Diseases (IATF-EID) and the National Task Force on COVID-19.

Individuals in the municipalities of Don Marcelino, Jose Abad Santos, Malita, Santa Maria, and Sarangani must use the QR Code generated by the StaySafe portal.

Davao Oriental Province

Davao Oriental has its own contact tracing system, known as the Davao Oriental Contact Tracing System (DavOr-DCTS) Quick Response (QR) Code.

It is a province-wide QR code system used to track the movement of people in Davao Oriental, particularly in the cities and municipalities of Mati and Baganga, Banaybanay, Boston, Caraga, Cateel, Governor Generoso, Lupon, Manay, San Isidro, and Tarragona.


SOCCSKSARGEN is a Mindanao region with its own unified contact tracing system, the South Cotabato COVID-19 Contact Tracing System (SC-CCTS), also known as Region XII CCTS. 

The Regional Inter-Agency Task Force (RIATF) and Regional Task Force on COVID-19 have approved using the contact tracing system in the region.

The South Cotabato - Covid-19 Contact Tracing System (SC-CCTS) registration portal.

SC-CCTS is also used in other LGUs, particularly in the cities of Bacolod, Butuan, Bayawan, and Antipolo; municipalities of Jose Abad Santos, Passi, Manapla, Cadiz, Bayombong, Himamaylan, Pilar, and Silay; and the Province of Maguindanao.

Cotabato City

Cotabato City in the Bangsamoro Autonomous Region in Muslim Mindanao, or BARMM, used to have its own contact tracing system, but it is now one of the cities geographically located in SOCCSKSARGEN that uses the SC-CCTS. 

Individuals in the city must register through the SC-CCTS portal. After completing their registration, they will be able to easily obtain their QR Code.

Cotabato Province

Just like its namesake, Cotabato City, the Province of Cotabato also uses SC-CCTS as its official contact tracing system.

General Santos City

General Santos City, the only highly urbanized city (HUC) in Soccsksargen, is one of the cities in the Philippines that has adopted the South Cotabato COVID-19 Contact Tracing System. Although General Santos has its own QR Code system, TAPAT QR, SC-CCTS is still used in the city and can be used in conjunction with it.

A non-resident entering the city should register their QR ID, such as CCTS, MDTC, or Cotabato QR, with TAPAT for Contact Tracing and Health Monitoring.

Those who do not have Contact Tracing IDs can generate TAPAT QR instead. The TAPAT-registered QR ID will be scanned upon entering any border checkpoints, establishments, or offices.

For non-residents/returning individuals:

Glan, Sarangani

The municipality of Glan in Sarangani has its own contact tracing system called DVYCARES, which stands for Data Vault for Your Covid-19 Assistance Response Emergency System.

Its goal is to provide residents of Glan with a contact tracing tool. Residents and public or private establishments in Glan, Sarangani, are required to use the application.

Malungon, Sarangani

Malungon is one of the towns in SOCCSKSARGEN QR, specifically in the Province of Sarangani, with its own contact tracing system known as the Malungon Tracking Data and Control (MTDC) System. It is used by both Malungon residents and non-residents upon entry to the town and its establishments.

Meanwhile, travelers who have not yet registered with other systems that can be scanned by MTDC can register for a Malungon QR Code.

Register here:

Note: If the Malungon QR Code registration portal is unavailable, you may register with SC-CCTS because the QR Code generated by SC-CCTS can be scanned by MTDC scanners.

South Cotabato Province

The South Cotabato-COVID-19 Contact Tracing System, or SC-CCTS, was created by the province of South Cotabato. From a province-wide contact tracing system to a regional platform for contract tracing, the SC CCTS is now used by several LGUs throughout the Philippines.

Individuals who live, work, or visit South Cotabato must register for a QR Code using the SC-CCTS portal. They must provide complete information and a mobile phone number, and a valid email address when registering.

They will receive their QR code as soon as they register. They can also apply for a personal CCTS Card.

Sultan Kudarat Province

Sultan Kudarat, like its sister provinces, has adopted SC-CCTS, and residents must register for a QR Code in order to enter establishments in the LGU under the province's jurisdiction.

Sarangani Province

Although some towns in Sarangani have their own QR code system, the province utilized South Cotabato's CCTS to provide a province-wide system for contact tracing.


Surprisingly, contact tracing systems such as the Safe Davao QR Code and SC-CCTS are well-established in regions or areas far from the center of the Philippines. Whereas some of the systems, specifically SC-CCTS, are also used in other parts of the Philippines to ensure proper contact tracing.

This simply means that the government should allocate funds or implement programs to further strengthen the country's digital infrastructure. Especially remote areas can manage to build a platform that can be used by all Filipinos. —iTacloban
