My guess is that when they open that people with SRRV and similar visas (SIRV?) or work permits will be allowed to return first before tourists can come in.

I thought of writing an example in my earlier post but erazed it. But I write it now

Several Americans living in USA, wanting to live remote not bothering anyone, have told me they are very frustrated at in many American states there are laws againsts living ecofriendly!!! In many cases much harder restrictions in USA than believed to be byrocratic Sweden
E g at one thingy concerning waste water from other than from water toilets I needed to spend almost no money to get an approved system,
while in American states they demand "homesteaders" to spend much money at a system worse for the environment than mine... The expensive in USA demanded system is even forbidden in a few Swedish municipalies of environment reason...
I'm not a "homesteader" but my house is remote as these frustrated Americans live or want to live but get stoped or have to waste much money because of American state laws...

The above is in some different American states. The following is in parts of Alaska.
An other frustrating law for some such Americans are some, who have lived remote a lifetime, dieing out now by old age, the last generation allowed to live there are their kids, but their grandkids are not allowed to live there. As I have understood it the grandkids even lose their inheritance right to these houses. These houses will become worthless anyway by it will become forbidden to live there...

So USA is not so free as many Americans claim/believe not even for tradtional "homesteading" which the main period of happened much more recent than in Europe, which make it extra odd USA have hard restrictions against them...

(Although Sweden have some similar false claims/believes but that's concerning social security systems. It was true Sweden was in top many years ago, but has droped down at that list.)

Hey Lunkan

So USA is not so free as many Americans claim/believe.

I NEVER SAID AMERICAN IS SO FREE!!!! I was making a statement how so many here think. That is why we are leading the WORLD right now with protesters and rioters. they don't want to be told they can't do it. The freedom here is changing rapidly and so many can't accept it.

WHAT?! USA is a big economy and have a big military now and then FORCING small countries,
but USA is definitly NOT leading the world concerning protest. There are many protests iun the world AGAINS American actions...

And neither Sweden nor USA are good examples for the wqoild concerning how we handle covid safety, both are among the WORST countries concerning covid safety rules/recomenations...
(I have written twice to the Swedish authority concerning safety distance, but they continue saying the arm length crap

Well. The examples I wrote were decided several years ago.
And I know many much worse older examples about USA concerning freedom, but I don't write them now because we are far from the Arriving in the Philippines subject allready

OMO but it's sometimes better to let go and sleeping dogs lie and bite your lip/tongue, post a new thread or another aligned or different site for a b*tch, there are plenty out there if you want to vent.
I have seen so many opposing political beliefs on different sites today and all are off topic. Stir crazy with all our current situations?

Arriving in the Philippines is the topic. I am already here so cannot add to the OP's ask.

Cheers, Steve.

It wasn't I, who moved it off topic by claiming something, which isn't true, but many Americans believe/ want to be true

Similar as many Swedes believe/want to be true Sweden is in top concerning social security, which isn't true neither.

The test can only be paid for with cash.

I wonder when the government will allow people to fly into the country on a tourist visa? They are killing the economy by not allowing tourist back into the country. I don't understand why they are not allowing them back in if they also are quarantined and tested.

I was looking at the Houston PH Consulate just the other day. If you look under Visas the conditions under which a visa can be obtained are spelled out in exact derail.

While I won't like/agree with your submission I believe a new thread is in order as it seems to be off topic. Go for it Lunkan.

Cheers, Steve.
