The quarantine issue for visitors to the Philippines

Postby Alexandoy » Sun Jul 11, 2021 10:45 pm

Incoming travelers with foreign passport are required to undergo 10 days of quarantine. Many of our friends and relatives from abroad are hesitant to come because of the quarantine rules. You have to waste 10 days of your vacation for the quarantine which is outrageous. Perhaps the authorities should be lenient with the quarantine like 3 days is amenable to travelers but not more.

I also believe that compulsory quarantine rules will deter people to visit the country as they will be wasting their 10 days. Instead of quarantine, perhaps the authorities can implement rules like mandatory PRC test for all incoming travelers and allowing them to enter the country only when they are negative or only allowing vaccinated people to enter the country can be better options.

I also think that it is not practical to travel abroad at this point wherein there is still Covid-19, people should just stay at home and wait for the virus to completely go away.

I'm hoping to fly back to the Philippines in December. I'm hoping everything will be better with the virus by then and foreigners won't have to quarantine for so long.

The quarantine and pandemic issue has really caused a lot of traveling problems.

The latest on the quarantine of the visiting foreigners to the Philippines is the quarantine of 7 days only for those with complete vaccine. Take note that you will be quarantined to a hotel at your own choice and expense. That is like being in jail for a week and you have to pay for your jail cell accommodation and food, of course.

Still not worth flying over there now unless I'm going to stay for more than 1 month. I want to travel to the Philippines for only 3-4 weeks this time. I will wait and hope that things get better.
