Philippines has added Thailand and Malaysia to their red-list country bans... for 7 days.

 

Thailand and Malaysia have been added to the list of countries covered by the Philippines' travel ban, due to the spike in COVID-19 cases there believed to be fueled by the Delta variant.

Travelers from these two countries are barred from entering the Philippines from July 25 to 31, announced Presidential Spokesman Harry Roque on Friday, July 23.

Also barred from entry are persons who have been to Thailand or Malaysia in the past 14 days but are arriving from a different country.

the Philippine consulate page has very clear guidelines on who is/is not currently allowed in. Their site, Visa – Philippine Consulate General Los Angeles California (philippineconsulatela.org),  lists the categories of travelers allowed in and  TOURISTS WITHOUT ANY FAMILIAL CONNECTIONS, or DUAL CITIZENSHIP ETC ARE NOT ALLOWED. The sites telling you how to apply for a tourist visa are either outdated or  private companies looking to make a buck handling your visa request

Non Filipinos are generally banned from entering Philippines at present. I have been in Manila for a few months and see quite a few foreigners in the area where I live - I received a Travel Ban Exemption from the DTI which allowed me to return; clearly there are a lot of others in the same boat. 

The TBE wasn't easy to obtain and took me about 4 months to process with the help of a lawyer. The cost was around $1000 for their services, but in retrospect I think I could probably have  processed it with the assistance of my company's HR.

Thanks!

 

As far as I know tourists are not allowed yet. Though I've spoken to someone who have been there business purposes, apparently pharmaceutical. 

I lived in Manila full-time since 2009 as single. I left in April 2021 to travel to USA and Colombia, knowing I wouldn't be able to return on tourist visa soon, but I never thought covid would make a come-back to Phils after a year and a half and lock the country down again. borders are still closed and have been closed since 2020 and  I'm "stuck" in Medellin/Colombia for 4 months..but it's not bad.I ain't complainin'..just bought a airbnb studio here and planning to stay until Phils re-opens

Due to Covid yes.  But you can't even apply for one now unless you are married to a Filipino, retired, etc.  With no end in site, if you have a loved one in the Philippines we're hoping for possibly meeting in Thailand.  Because I can't go there and she can't come here.
