  2. It’s hard to believe those high Philippine vaccination rate figures from anecdotal evidence. Certainly not in Subic or Angeles. Maybe in the capital region, but given the amount of people who live on the street, I doubt it.

  3. Just as long as it’s open by July I will be happy. Very hard to make plans when you don’t know what the future holds. Thanks Gio for the updates mate.

  4. What about individuals who have had, and recovered from, COVID? I can’t take any vaccinations due to autoimmune disease but have had COVID and recovered. Any news on that?

  5. Hey there Gio. This year I’ve merely had trips within Western Australia. I couldn’t even travel easily to other states of Australia. We have been free of covid19 for much of this year and hence the hard border. Cheers from Perth! πŸ‡¦πŸ‡ΊπŸ¦˜

  6. Hi there, as long as any SE Asian country opening doesn’t have quarantine I will be on a plane. I don’t care what country, I just want to experience the joys of travelling again.

  7. Nope! Not even in March 2022.. They even don’t have any plan yet on how.. Its always those useless words from “Harry” like last night he said “In due time”…

  8. Thailand pass is shit right now. 65K? Lol. May be 20K real applicants. The system is so bad everyone applied multiple times. Going by that experience, I don’t think Philippines is opening positively by before mid 2022. The process itself will take 6 months to smooth out. Thiland still have an experience of handling tourists for the last few months. Philippines don’t.

  9. Gio. Thank you 😊for your update. Watching from Windsor. Ontario. Canada πŸ‡¨πŸ‡¦πŸπŸ‡¨πŸ‡¦. Looking forward to see my Filipina girlfriend in July 22. Will be the best news when the Philippines πŸ‡΅πŸ‡­open to foreign tourists.

  10. I believe to get on any airline you have to be vaccined. All of Europe requires you to be vaccined and with a vaccine from approved for only some countries, not all countries ie the Russian vaccine is not accepted.
    Denmark and Germany has the highest percentage of their population vaccined. They are also the most well educated and literate countries. They stopped wearing masks a long time ago after most of their population was vaccined. They will allow vaccined tourists in. And you can go anywhere without a mask.
    Fyi…Denmark is always in the top 5 best countries to live in the world even since they have been rating countries on ‘happiest people in the world’ scale. They were one the first few countries that went into lockdown even before the United States took the virus seriously. They were also one of the first countries to open up and stop wearing masks as their people, being highly educated, trusted the science and immediately got vaccined. You can Google the facts. I have a fellow Dane who told me the same.
    ps For the record I did get the vaccine but for those looking to get a booster or the may still be waiting to get the vaccine i would not…yes NOT recommend the J&J vaccine! You are better off with Moderna or Pfizer vaccines.
    I have suffered from GBS about 10 years ago, woke up on day and I couldn’t stand, could barely pick up the phone, dragged myself to the hospital near me barely being able to press the pedals. Was hospitalized costing over $100k with 30k treatment every month. Lost everything I worked hard for, my sweat and blood all gone as I couldn’t walk for years. But this was before Coronavirus. And it did not happen after a flu shot either. They have no real idea how one gets GBS. I do remember that I loved to each Chinese food for lunch, especially seafood and I did have some digestive problems a few days prior. The Shrimp Lo Mein was my favorite. I would eat it 3 or 4 times a week for lunch. Shrimp are bottom feeders.
    I also suffer from autoimmune conditions. Never had a problem with the J&J but i would not recommend it because barely 4 months later i got Covid. My mouth is still busted up, my saliva grands don’t work as well. Affecting teeth..nasty virus!

  11. Yeah its going to open. They are under a lot of pressure. If they weren’t milking foreign aid it would already be open. Its all political and corrupt.

  12. Quite frankly I don’t pay attention to any updates regarding the Philippines. They have this ability to take one step foreword and two steps back. They always find a way to “F” things up

  13. The analysis depends on the virus!
    The timing will be determined by the virus. Is like this, on December 15, world wide virus cases trending level or decreasing, yes things open the following 3 to 6 months. If virus cases are trending up on December 15, evaluate in 3 to 6 months
    This is the process that is being used now that the virus has been around for 2 years.

    There may be spots in the world that do not fit this but likely not many. Once travel begins to resume it will take some time to refine policy. 2022 will have a lot of ” rules”, 2023 less rules.

    I setting my sights on May 1, 2023, my reason is I want to be there in May and June for starters and I think May 1, 2022 may be a bit chancy. I coming 10,000 miles, want a successful trip.

  14. I’ve been in Thailand for the last 7 months waiting for Philippines to open. And they’re just now looking into Thailand’s process? πŸ™ They’re always behind on everything. They could’ve had a quarantine situation like Thailand since last year. No one comes in with it, and they’re insured in case they get it. Simple and makes sense. Too bad people in charge everywhere can’t get anything done right.

  15. if Philippines wants to copy Thailand sandbox like everyone else is, they are already to 6 months too late to make march, 2022. it takes more than 7 months to set it up, that is if you are experienced and did it before. Thailand spent a year getting it ready to open an island in July, had lots of problems really did not work, they thought they learned, in july they try to expand the same system to other parts. thought they could do it in. 3 months and open in September, missed the date move to October, missed the date move it to November, was at point open ready or not, it is not ready having lots of problems. Vietnam started theirs a year ago, it too is starting as one small island.we will see how it goes. the good news is Thailand had 7,000 Foreign tourist arrive on November 1st. some problems but it is getting better. one problem was airlines were not ready and not enough flights. Philippines is too late to get enough flights by march. airlines would already have to be setting up the flights now. it takes months to set up new flights.

  16. You dont need to be vaccinated to enter Thailand Gio. But you will need to 10 day quarantine. The airlines will most likely stop you from flying unvaccinated before Thailand does. Some airlines are undecided, some are not.

  17. Unless the population of the Philippines is 70% vaccinated that is when they will reopen it’s what I have heard from some people in the Philippines.

  18. All well and good for the reopening of SEAsia. However the one very big sticking point (fly in the ointment) so to speak is the Covid or health insurance requirement. Right now the premium cost for $50,000 worth of coverage for a senior traveler is relatively prohibitive. If this practice continues almost all tourists will be under the age of 60. Forget about retirement in SE Asia and look to Latin America instead.

  19. i think your being a little cautious by saying open by march. i think we will see significant moves over the next tw months. First they will remove quarentine for all fully vaccinated returning filipinos maybe even this month. the next step, if there is no serious uptick in cases, will be So called gateways, Lapu lapu and Boracay are definately preparing fr this. and other places i am sure. then as long as these are reasonably successful and the vaccination rate continues i am thinking general opening late jan or early feb. i hope so cos i am planning to arrive on 26 january and we are going to join my family who will be vacationing in Thailand.

  20. In some respects it makes sense to wait for the Philippines to open before visiting Southeast Asia. As the last country to open, The pandemic will be winding down, masks will become less mandatory, and businesses will open back up. Visiting now is not the best way to see the Philippines.

  21. I would like to go but the vaccine mandate will not allow me to do so.
    The vaccine is just too dangerous to do.
    I would have to see what happens to the rest of you with the experimental jab

  22. Last time i came to Philippines was November 2019 . I don’t hope these days will come. But still iatf says in due time . Thailand opened sandbox they open for 63 countries. I hope at least sandbox for Philippines.

  23. A note on Cambodia: at the moment limited to Sihanoukville in the south and an outer island. However, no one flies there. They clearly did not think this initiative through. For my part, I’ll be leaving for Oaxaca state in Mexico shortly. SE Asia is still too restrictive for my taste and it seems that it will remain so for the foreseeable future.

  24. Don’t copy what Thailand did before, copy what it is doing NOW. The complicated sandbox idea is over with. The sandbox data showed the people arriving were testing positive less than 1% of the time, so all the sandbox stuff wasn’t really necessary, and Thailand is moving on with only 1 night quarantine, test and then let them go. Learn from what Thailand learned, don’t go backwards and do sandboxing of islands, its not necessary.

  25. I’m really hoping to meet my gf in digos next year crossing fingers, she got her last doze of Pfizer 5.nov so all good. I’m fully vaccinated from Norway so I’m hopeful na😊😊

  26. The Philippines will have to open in the New Year they’ll take them 10 years to reach or 3 years to reach mass shot 100% they’re going to have to live with it like all the other countries are and open up just like the flu

  27. I agree, it will open by the WTTC summit on March 14-15. Open for vaccinated tourists by that time, my opinion has changed after listening to the WTTC meeting. The question will then be, what sort of torture will they bring upon us foreign tourists with the unnecessary requirements. I also believe the Filipinos living abroad will be able to travel back home for Christmas. So, my guess is Dec 1 for Filipinos abroad and March 1 for foreign tourists. And that is a 180 from what I was thinking, since I was thinking 2023.

  28. There is a question nations is sending everybody on vaccines. If vaccines work why the quarentine ? What is the real reason of quarentine if vaccines worked ? By them doing quarentine on fully vaccinated people is sending a message that vaccines not work. If not work why get vaccinated right ? Either they believe in science or not. It should not matter where a person from if fully vaccinated, if vaccines are real and work.

  29. For me i believe in science in medical. We go doctor to get well and use medicines perscribed. So i firmly believe in vaccines i am fully vaccinated.

  30. By dec people in usa will be fined and lose their jobs if not fully vaccinated. It manatory for usa military also if not get it they get a dishonorable discharge and lose all benefits. By jan 2022 osha kicking in full throdle and can issue $120,000.00 fines to companies per person not complying.

  31. Also philippines president issued warnings to all provinces that who not comply with vaccine mandates he will sanction that province and fine the mayors and governors.

  32. Gio, question about how you pay for your apartment. One of the things I have not heard mentioned by many vloggers is the actual method of payment to apartment landlords. Do most places allow payment by credit card? I would prefer to use my business credit card to pay such expenses. What are the alternatives? Thanks.

  33. Elections in May will be the trigger. An economy rebound will be a good psychological effect for the official party and they will have to reopen by Feb to see the economical impact.

  34. Contemplating Thailand in March, but I really have my heart set on getting back to the Philippines. My biggest concern is how the Philippines will structure their “opening?” My guess is they will have some catch in there, probably 1 or 3 days quarantine for vaccinated travelers, but who knows? The other big worry is waiting on the population in general to hit the 75% herd immunity they have talked about in the past. If that is still a hard number, it will be July or August before they hit something close to that…IMO

  35. Hello Gio, I believe the Philippines will open up most likely between March 2022 and June 2022. My prediction based on the erratic and corrupted behavior of the IATF!

  36. I’ve been here in Cebu for 2 and a half and I’m finally getting ready to get out of here. I was vaccinated here in Aug. with JandJ. Has anyone been successful in getting their Vax Digital Certificate here? I tried online and it tells you to wait 5 days. I don’t know if it’s going to work. Getting that if you’re already here will be your easy ticket in and out of here. If not then you have to get one in the US. You’re going to have to be vaccinated to come here and I’m not sure that the white vaccination cards are sufficient.

  37. Hey Gio. Another great video. I am in Thailand right now. I spent two weeks in Phuket even though I was released after 6 days. I stayed an extra week to get a 60 day Covid extension. I am currently in Koh Phi Phi. I feel like I have the island to myself. Very few tourists here. I would guess 85% of the businesses are still closed but the tour providers are giving deep discounts right now. I am going snorkeling tomorrow on a boat by myself for half price. Scuba diving Tuesday again no other tourists for 60% of the normal price. I’m having a blast and I am glad I chose now verses later when more tourists arrive.

  38. Hey Gio my dear friend, I’m still banking on the Philippines opening up in mid 2022. I’m thinking about purchasing my ticket for May 2022. I guess we will see. Thank you Gio my dear friend for sharing this awesome video. Please stay safe and healthy, and God bless you always.😊 😊 😊 ❀️ ❀️ ❀️ ❀️
