Oh so SRRV not married to Filipina/without kids in the Philippines are NOT allowed to enter the Philippines???
Wasn't it allowed earlier for foreigners with SRRV living in the Philippines to come back home to the Philippines?
I had understood it as ALL with long stay VISAs as SRRV and 13a were allowed to enter.

It all changed around the second week of August.

I do not think SRRV was ever on the list of approved visa for reentry.

Not watching that closely as I am here and do not intend to leave for a while, until the situation clarifies.

As soon as the travel restrictions were in place the PRA issued a letter to all SRRV holders saying that they were NOT on the approved list to re-enter but could stay if they were in country.

So far I have seen nothing to change that and the SRRV is not on any approved lists for re-entering the Philippines unless you are married to a local or have dependent Filipino children.

It would make sense if it was approved for re-entry but IMFITP.

The PRA confirms to me weekly the ever same things:
- no, a SRRV does not qualify for re-entering the Philippines
- yes, we know that this is a problem and we are trying to solve it.

Needless to say that in the course of more than only "a few weeks" nothing did change. So, once again: A SRRV does definitely not qualify for re-rentering the Philippines at present.

It is everyone's guess whether, when and how this ever will be changed.

This is absolutely correct! I just completed the renewal my SRRV ID Card this week online and the PRA sent me an updated email with that exact same information in it on Monday, September 7th...they are aware that certain SRRV Visa holders are NOT currently allowed to enter back into the Philippines and they said they are working on this issue to get it resolved as quickly as possible...however, as was already pointed out...it's everyone's guess when this will actually take place.

Renewed online and an email update? For some reason that really impresses me! LOL

What did they do about your card or do you have to wait until you can get to a PRA office to get that?
