My bad for going off topic, Please accept my apologies.
The link from my previous post? As an old timer my searches revealed little,,,,,,,, the better half told me I was asking the wrong question, slapped yet again. Here is the link/report on the ABC from the CSIRO Australia.


Things to think about.

Cheers, Steve.

AND STILLL MORE TRAVEL CHANGES...Streaming LIVE this weekend on a Facebook Video, (Saturday, October 10th), Philippine Cabinet Secretary Kario Nograles announced that since many foreigners are not yet allowed to travel to the Philippines, the Philippine Government will ease the current Inter-Agency Task Force, (IATF), travel restrictions and allow Filipino's with foreign partners travel authorization to travel outside of the Philippines in order to be reunited with their foreign partners.

The Management of Emerging Infectious Diseases has a few more details to iron out such as; outbound travel mechanisms, testing procedures, airport usage, airlines that will be allowed to participate, Bureau of Immigration and Department of Foreign Affairs, (DFA), input as well as coordinating with other countries that will accept Filipinos leaving the Philippines...

The Palace official asked the general public to please be understanding on the time frame to actually implement this program as there are so many issues that need to be coordinated so the program can operate smoothly. Outbound travel for Philippine Nationals has been suspended since March as a result of the COVID19 pandemic but several attempts, (June and July), prior to this to allow outbound travel due to rebooking issues have FAILED miserably and the fact that only one insurance company agreed to the conditions in the case that a traveler might contract the disease. However, those with confirmed bookings prior to July 20th were still allowed non-essential outbound travel before the process shut down completely, according to Palace spokesperson Harry Rogue.

Bottom line...at least the Philippine Government has recognized that there are couples and families who have been torn apart from each other and it appears that the government is trying to resolve the issue but ABSOLUELY NO DATE has been released for the implementation of this supposed new travel policy. This information was released this morning on Google News Feed. I did locate the Video on Facebook but it was in Tagalog so I have no idea what was actually said and only had this news feed report for this post.

Good that they are letting them out for family reunification.

Now they just need to be going somewhere that will let them in.

I am hoping for domestic rules to loosen up a little.

It looks like they are changing the domestic travel rules.

I am not sure what this will mean in practice but I am hoping that travel will be easy now.
