The Philippines has been my home for over five years, now.
So when I went back to my other home, my childhood home, in the UK at the beginning of the year, I knew I wouldn’t be there forever.
Unfortunately last year I got into a serious medical crisis and had no choice but to go back to the UK for treatment. That treatment is underway, going well, and I am now ready to come back to the Philippines.
I’m in hotel quarantine in Cebu for now, and will be back in my actual home, IE my house, after a week – hopefully!
This video should also provide something of a guide to those wanting to come back to the Philippines at the moment, if you’re allowed! The main points that I missed from this video:
– NUMBER ONE: You HAVE TO HAVE THE RIGHT VISA! So for now, foreigners must be married (entering with their spouse, or if not entering together, with a visa from the Embassy) or on certain visa classes that changes often and is listed on the Immigration website. YOU CANNOT COME IN AS A TOURIST!
– You need a confirmed hotel booking for 7 nights, and it needs to be on the quarantine hotel list
– You have to fill out a form online before you arrive, in Cebu it generates a barcode, not sure about Manila
– A lot of the airline check-in staff won’t have a huge amount of information about entry requirements, so take extra paperwork and proof of eligibility just in case! I saw the guidelines for Philippines entry and it was about 4 lines on a sheet. That is obviously not going to cover everything in detail!
