What about the return flight to the states? I am not sure if I understand the restrictions.

Art,

I've found that Cathay Pacific Travel Advisories which are frequently updated are a good source of information. Click on the link below and scroll down to view each country.

I recall reading foreign spouses of Philippine spouses must be with their Philippine spouse during the travel to enter the Philippines. If anyone knows otherwise kindly post it.

Latest update: 08 May 2020 18:00 HKT (GMT+8)

The Philippines - Entry restriction exemptions
Philippine citizens and their foreign spouse/children (including permanent residents, holders of a Recognition certificate and RA9225 Identification certificate) are permitted to enter however must undergo a 14-day home quarantine on arrival

Passengers travelling on a diplomatic passport may travel however will be subject to a 14-day quarantine on arrival

hey Joe

Thanks for the info. I guess flying to the Philippines is out for awhile. I am not coming there and being home confined for 14 days and then I can't travel from 1 area to another.

Coming back to the states is no problem from a citizen after leaving the Philippines unless the person feels sick when arriving. They would make an assessment upon arrival in the approved airport.

What a mess.

Well I wrote to my wife for about 11 month before visiting then another year until we married, then another 9 month until she got her visa. Just take your time and if it's meant to be it will happen.

I have been trying to get there since early May and have rescheduled twice. This was the year I was going to retire there after buying a condo last year. After the information I have received in several emails, I have given up all hopes to be there this year. I'm not even going to think about traveling there until next year or until all quarantines have been lifted there.

Sorry to hear that JRB... so much for retirement. Even if you do arrive you'll be stuck in quarantine for 14 days plus and some people are waiting for a month all on your dime and then good luck finding transportation outside of Manila, check points up and down all highways, I have trouble transiting to my bank and can only go on Tuesdays and Thursdays and we still have no public transportation in Luzon and it's nearly July.

If you need to transit to another island it's gonna be even worse the local government in that region has to have a clearance letter or you'll be sent back to Manila and sitting on the streets.

Hi again JRB, been awhile. Firstly did your condo get finished, ready to move in? Being a slacker I can't remember if you mentioned your country of origin/where you live now, old timers, I did have a quick look at your profile but alas nothing. So perhaps you are in a safer country than us here in PH. where the overall new cases are rising, even my country Australia after getting things under control and no deaths for 4 weeks has this last week seen a rise in infections and threatened border controls and probably suburban lockdowns in hot spots around Melbournes CBD. My plans to go back to work in August are out the window as I very much doubt Oz will let me back in,,,,,,, time will tell.
All we can do is hunker down and stay safe, follow health directives and rewatch the same movies over and again.
Wish you luck with your retirement mate.

Cheers, Steve.

Yeah M.C.A so much for retirement. It's not too bad though just getting bored.... I have been keeping up with what's been going on there more than I have been here. I think even with the 14+ days quarantine check points and everything else. I would still be willing to go. I already had paid accommodations for 2 months. I'm not sure it was "BOQ" approved though. Anyway, it doesn't make any difference now.

Hi BigPearl yes it has been awhile. I've been catching up from time to time just haven't had much to say. They have told me the condo is complete and ready for move in. They just don't have any policy for the "new normal". At least when I get there I can move right in. I also hired a company to start the SRRV process. But of course all that has been put on hold as well.

I think it is safer there than here right now. I am currently in Phoenix Az where they threw all safety procedures out the window weeks ago and now hospitals are close to max occupancy. We are now the hot spot for the US and hospital staff have to make decisions on who will or will not get treatment COVID related or not. Did we not learn anything from NY? Ok sorry for my little rant enough on that.

There's nothing in my profile because I can not update anything on my profile until I reach 5 posts. Which I think this is my 5th post. So, I will be updating all that soon. Stay tuned.
