Hi! I am JM, an ongoing DOST JLSS scholar under RA 10612. I would just like to request for information regarding:

1) What's the process and what are the requirements needed of an ongoing scholar in order to have a travel clearance? Just for a short vacation only.

2) If there's a process, is it quick to apply?
