Wouldn't the passport info stamps tell the story of your travels no matter what you want them to believe? :scratch_head:

Show your ticket.

Last time I checked the fine print you would need to have been in Taiwan for 2 weeks. Taiwan does not presently allow transit. Taiwan does not allow tourist entry from USA, for example, either.

Previously, 2 weeks was stipulated but that was the old rule.  Don't see it here.  Currently, but I think that rule ends the end of the year.  I think Delta is still flying through Japan though.  Not to Cebu but Manila.

Their entry / exit rules and regulations are about as clear as mud in a beer bottle!! When are the ruling clowns going to realise that they are stuffing up the one industry that could pull the Ph

I think most people use the term tourist in reference to just a random person and not someone with a spouse or child in the RP.

It is all getting rather old, wife has not been home in long time.  I am hoping she can go this summer and been looking at flights.  Prices are up and I see no flights into Cebu only Manila.  I will feel very bad if she cannot go home this year!

We are looking at the May time frame as well, Philippine Airlines is flying from LAX-CEB direct on Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday.

You don’t want to come here, it’s hot, you’ll sweat, and have to eat Bbq. Take a shower and relax in the evening with a nice martini, absolutely horrible I tell you!  :cool:

I believe I have a way in soon, but I won't claim it works until I'm in Manila. Probably in quarantine in Manila, but still in Manila, by God.

Haven't seen that the requirement for a visa BEFORE entering has been lifted, has it?

Still waiting on EED  - Chicago office said about a week to approve after it's granted.

I have not done much shopping for flights but have seen no direct to Cebu flights.  I tried connecting flights from FL and out of LAX.  No luck.    I would rather go to a Russian gulag than have to quarantine in Manila.  That is like cruel and unusual punishment for me.

Try the Heritage Hotel in Pasay. They're a sanctioned quarantine hotel. 6k a night and you can get whiskey and girls delivered. Problem solved.

That's the problem, I think, for Brits and others trying to sneak their way in via a green country. You can probably fly with Turkish Airlines from e.g. Kosovo or Morocco to Manila, but who knows if the Philippine embassy in the green country would give you a visa? No doubt people desperate to see their girl friends will be researching all the possible ways to sneak in.

I don't believe so. Tourists still can't get in as far as I know.

not strictly true.  Tourists CAN get in, but in limited circumstances.  You would need to be married here or have children here, and would need to apply for and receive a 9A (tourist) visa in your home country before boarding your flight.  Once you are insde PI, you can extend the 9A (tourist) visa in same manner as before the pandemic.

So, basically nothing has changed Visa wise.

Health protocols have changed in regards to testing, quarantine etc… depending if your coming from a green, yellow etc country.
