So the Philippine government will allow outbound travel now for Filipinos. What about inbound travel to the Philippines by other nationalities? have they said anything about that? If allowed what requirements will be in place?

The Philippines Department of Tourism has announced that later this month they will begin allowing foreign tourist into the country to a few select locations but dates and details have not been released yet and as usual...this information is subject to change again...and again...and again...(?)...

If Filipinos can leave and come back... there is no real reason not to allow foreigners to come in. It is pretty much the same exposure risk.

I agree...there is absolutely NO additional exposure risk separating the two circumstances! Letting anyone out of a particular location or area and then back in again with regards to potential risk factors has absolutely no bearing on ones nationality...

The problem is that the people are dirt poor here so they can't afford to be hospitalized and end up dying from the disease, example my brother in-law had high blood pressure but the hospital will only take him if he has a 30,000 deposit.

The other issue is that if a single person comes here they don't have family or good tracking and will be all over the place.

So either the government has to accept the fees and potential fallout from allowing foreigners in the country or they block them until a vaccine is available, I don't think there's enough funding for more Covid cases or room the Health Care in the Philippines is challenged at best.

Well., That isn't sure.
Even IF I haven't found a new presumtive wife instead of the one, who gave up waiting, I have a rather big network and Filipinoi contacts, who can solve things for me, if they don't want to do the work themself - which they often do or hand it over to some family or friend.
Rather often they tell me things, which many foreigners living there don't know (iwhen living in subdivisions away from common people) . And I sure know more about provinces than most high educated rich Manila Filipinos do by they don't coimmunicate with common Filipinos as I do. E g one such bank employee in charge of reeal estate adds had put many of them at wrong islands!!! : heh:
(E g Bukidnon at Bohol and Aklan at Cebu.)

People, who don't know me, can believe I'm messy by I look bohemic, which I am private, but I'm very organiced concerning business and planning of mportant thngs as e g living solved WITHOUT using hotels normaly (except perhaps for a night if I arrive late to new pllace and I want to look myself first before I deciie which option I chose of them I have prepared.

(E g I have prepared plan done long before traveling. Booked a studio room in a rather nice boarding house so cheap so I will probably keep it some months just to sleep first nights and leave most of my luggage there when I leave, so I don't need to carry things around until I have decided whiere - far away from city - where I will rent first, which I have asked some Filipinois to prepare objects for me. This was before covid. Everything is put on hold now though. The boarding house was done by I know the handler, but I hadn't asked others to look for objects yet.)

advised concerned parties to file a request for exemption from the travel ban before an appropriate embassy abroad.

Looks good Hey Joe! And so it appears it's possible for someone to get here if they have a serious relationship and it will still be on a case by case basis here's a quick posting from the link above.

[Translation: For inbound travels, those with fiances, it’s still a case-to-case basis. If their wedding is already scheduled, then why not?]

I hope a friend of mine and later I can get in by it took check a business opportiny.

Some extra risks now for businesses in the world,
but on the other hand there are more opportunities to get (part of) businesses cheap if having cash enough.

And I like gambling - if the odds are good
'and not to much money so can manage a scam/failure/loss.

So I looked at such opportunities even before I saw this news, actualy I were in first steps of negotiiations allready since a week with two different of which I will probably take the chance and chose one of them if we can reach an agreement.

But even if neither I or a friend will get in, I will send 1-2 Filipinos, who don't know the others, to check before I decide. Plus there is a very friendly foreigner close to one of them, who knows about that one allready and he say they are good although that REDUCE his chances to get what he have sold to me which add trustworthyness
