Unless you're married to a citizen or the parent of one, no.  Nothing new yet.

Sadly tourists are the furthest thing on their minds at moment... The Pres is more intent on commenting on a senators hair, thats deemed way more important it seem.

Thailand is taking many steps to be able to attract and keep tourists safe and that seems to be a better bet at moment.

Nothing will happen in 2021 about tourists to Philippines.. but there may well be lots of announcements but as with everything at moment , its the small print that provides the real details of what you can do..not the big important sounding Press Release.

Thanks, so everything is the same but different. I am particularly interested as I have to decide whether to take an extension on my lease in the rental unit I am in.

So my thinking is that I am not going to get back in the Philippines until March/April next year.

Geoff , I hope I am wrong but that is what my crystal ball is saying,

Cheers everyone, please don’t hesitate to prove me wrong.

If you are lucky. If you fly into Bohol you only need a recent test. There is no more quarantine. The rest of the country has restricted entry and quarantines. Back in May I thought the Philippines would open up to tourists by Christmas 2021. Now Christmas of 2022 seems like a better guess.

For the time being,  perhaps those in charge will continue to sail along in their own little Philippines (face-shield protected) parallel universe, until something 'big' happens... like bankruptcy, civil unrest, AND an empty begging bowl ? :89:

"They" are holding it hostage for the upcoming elections?

That begging bowl must be near empty, and perish the thought of visas and all associated tourist cash cows increasing to fill it up again.
