Philippines Citizen flying to Manila from USA, No quarantine

8 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Had two sets of parents leave last week, they are friends. 

 

Only one I have followed up on is staying with relatives in Pasig or Pasay.  They can't fly home to Davao City due to no Public transportation at the moment.

 

So I guess the 14 days quarantine at specific hotel when arriving internationally is bunk or Fake News, or another rule has been implemented.   So confusing

Its a fluid situation at best.   Last week my wife's cousin did 4 days until the swab test came back negative,  and then flew to cebu where he was allowed to go home.   


YMMV

Well I was told again yesterday after my wife having lunch and doing an eyeball with her group of pinays, that in fact the parents are in a hotel under quarantine for 14 days.

 

Heck they can't even have communication in the USA, this is one of my pet peeves about Philippines and their culture, Communication breakdown is part of life anywhere they live

I was supposed to go in December to spend Christmas with my wife and daughter, so I contacted the Philippine embassy here in Houston. What they told me was when I arrive in Manila I would be given a test for Covid-19 and I have to wait 1 to 3 days for the results, if the test comes back negative I can travel to her island where I would be put in a 14 day mandatory quarantine. We have decided to delay my trip until April 2021 or possibly December 2021 since the whole process seems to change from day to day.  

 

Also, you have to arrange for your quarantine approved places to stay that you pay for on your dime. You will need to show proof you have made arrangements where you are going to stay for your 1 to 3 days for the test and then when you arrive at you final destination island.  I honestly have no idea how you are supposed to find approved places to stay.

That link has the approved places.  Its over 200 and is a range of different budgets.  The prices per night should also include 3 meals since you are not allowed to leave the room waiting for your test result.  Prices will be obtained from the hotels directly.  This is for Manila upon arriving.  

 

For your final destination its normally just a home quarantine however different provinces/cities/barangay's tend to have different rules on how strict it is.  Some areas nobody cares and no one will check on you, other areas someone may come around 1-2 times a day and take your temperature, others wont.  Your fiance/spouse will need to give you those details.  However, domestic transportation is restricted.  One option is to rent a car while there so you at least have transportation if another strict quarantine comes into place.

I was thinking the same thing and not 100% sure but the feeling I have is the 1-2 days quarantine in Manila you could not as I don’t think anyone is allowed to the room. Even your food is placed outside the door. 
 

however the quarantine at home you could have.
