  2. YouTuber Roaming Hogan went home to Dublin Ireland because of so many restrictions. Even when he was leaving there was so much paperwork and departments to go to.

  3. ~~~I guess it’s okay to take the vaccine if you aren’t planning having children.. You have no idea what that fast track vaccine will do to people… I’m frickin NOT taking it… A Filipina GF or wife does me no good if I am debilitated or dead….

  4. The world wide law might become that, you take the vaccine & you’re free to travel overseas. You don’t take & you’re not.
    Then the decision will be made on how much, how desperate the individual wants, needs, to travel.

  5. Yes no vaccine for me
    Doubt if I’ll return to the Philippines now that I’m building a home in the Caribbean. I’m back in Arizona since May and guess what no mask and no being stopped by Philippine military asking for my papers. It’s too bad but the Philippines is actually moving in reverse and I didn’t think that possible.

  6. I will take the vaccine, I just had 10 friends close to me that are covid positive & I am really trying to escape the states & even though I do speak almost fluent Spanish the Philippines is the only place I want to live. I would live in costa rica if I cant get back to the Philippines soon enough but I will leave CR to return to PH ASAFP

  7. I have been here for a little over a year and have no plans to go back to the USA or anywhere else for now. I am an old guy, have a great house and yard. I enjoy watching the birds and insects, etc. learning all the tropical plants, etc. There are many places here in the islands that I want to visit when this pandemic has ended. So I will just hang around until I can travel again.

  8. I’ve always considered latin america but not seriously until this hit and now it’s getting cold and dark in US and it’s the only option so I’ll be giving it a go soon.

  9. Im confused. Yesterday they said after December 7 there is a change. Some say you do not need a visa issued by the embassy in your country. It is like it was a few months ago. Show your marriage certificate upon arrival is good enough like it was months ago. Who knows what is true. Do you need a visa before you travel ??? Are no visa before you travel ?? Why is this important? If your married and here on a 36 month tourist visa. If your time is up. Instead of a long international flight, you could do a overnight visa trip to Hong Kong and return the next day. Show your marriage certificate from PSA and inter=== thats if no visa required ???

  10. A lot of these exodus if there’s one is about the moronic policies that are being implemented by Philippine officials, the west have a different view about this pandemic than in the Philippines,to me its all about ignorance and perception about these covid 19,soon they will realized this mistake and make amends by allowing foreigners to travel back to the country again.

  11. I was interested in a SSRV VISA in the Philippines but since the covid situation I realized that at 65 I would be a prisoner in my home and if I was out of the country they would not make it possible to enter the country even with the RSSV.

  12. Hi Gio thanks for the info, my GF told me today by 1/21 I should be able to travel there with no restrictions but i don’t think she is taking into consideration my white skin and money, we paid the skin tax there, now it will be the skin fines if my hunch is right. No plans on coming back there anytime soon, I don’t want to be a prisoner of their corrupt system. Hope you and Ging are doing well.

  13. Was announced here today that it’s theAirlinesthat will require you to have
    The vaccines
    To fly anywhere…
    We’re going to get the shaft
    No vaccine for me…
    It could be when you GET the China 🦠 virus
    🥵🥵🥵🥵🥵🥵

  14. I recently read that retirement visas were all being voided, is that true? The article stated it was due to the discovery there were 35,000 Chinese (males only) 35 years of age all ‘retired’ here. It was stated there was concern these were actually military personnel placed here by Ch gov. and that’s why the voiding of all such visas.
    Sounds far fetched, do you know the truth?

  15. I have been allowed out for about a month and even when there was a lockdown I went shopping a couple times. The security guards knew my age and hesitated but let me in.

    I think several airlines and individual states will eventually require a vaccine or like Hawaii was requiring a 14-day quarantine. Many states have been overly oppressive with prohibitions – much illegally.

    I’m here for the long haul but do miss some of the foods I could easily get back home, so I have started to learn how to make them myself like cheeses pretzels and a lot more…

  16. So happy I chose to move out in June of 2019 and make my home in Thailand. I do miss the Pi women for sure, but that is all I miss. Plenty of playmates in Thailand but that is all they are. Comparing the two countries, as many like to do on YouTube, is a silly exercise.It is like comparing a Jeepney to a BMW.. Thailand wins in all categories, by a long shot.

  17. In the usa we cam go anywhere but maybe some places are closed. I could never be in a place that limits age or need pass to go somewhere. Keep safe
    Am in Washington state. Bye

  18. Good — force those dumbasses to have the vaccine. Conspiracy nutcases and red hats can go/stay home — we don’t need ‘em embarrassing the rest of us.

  19. U know I would be out of here if it wasn’t for Ne (GF). It is way too restrictive & I kind of doubt it ever completely goes back to normal. The only reason I would take the vaccine is I believe it will be less restrictive if U take it not because I am afraid of getting the virus.

  20. Most all of those who did NOT buy a home in their Thai wife’s name are packing & leaving Thailand including teachers. Thailand’s Immigration Laws are becoming way, way, way to unreasonable. Tourism into Thailand is now days abusive to say the least. Seems like the Philippines is following Thailand’s lead ….problem is, they’re both shooting themselves in the foot. The economies of both Thailand & Philippines are going down the toilet fast. USA has it’s problems …but living & survival is possible in the US if one is prudent & uses common sense. Thankfully, some of us are single, don’t have baggage and can go where we want.

  21. Google Dengvaxia vaccine Philippines – Philippines to charge Sanofi officials over dengue vaccination deaths. Philippine Dengue Vaccine Criminal Indictments Includes President of Sanofi Pasteur & their FDA. ITS A FACT NOT A CONSPIRACY. 100s of children have already died after taking the shot, the reason, it was banned.

    Still Philippines haven’t learned its lesson. RESEARCH ON YOUR OWN.

  22. Qantas has already set policy that will require vaccination for international travel. All the other International airlines will follow. And then countries.

  23. Duterte is an authoritarian. Any place that responds to a pandemic by putting everyone out of business, cannot be trusted! This is why I left. But things will be back on track. Costa Rica / Colombia / Mexico are open and becoming more appealing, with literally no travel restrictions!

  24. The vaccine could be used to kill people don’t rule it out people, and other issue I don’t believe it to be true age discrimination can be an excuse to refuse entry of someone into restaurant. However I do believe the Philippines Government are making more enemies than friends with their innuendo campaign. Hint of advice do not take your guard down when it relates to the Philippines authorities. Be safe.

  25. yeah.. Roaming Hogan just left the Philippines for Ireland.. home country… he got tired of all the paperwork and being harassed everywhere he went.. Cebu area is tough… I might have gone home if i had to do that long of a lockdown! Here, i know another Australian leaving after 22 years.. selling his house here in La Union Philippines.. he is done! I too follow Vern in Turkey.. or now.. soon to be somewhere else… good video.. if you ever go to La Union.. hit me up! can take you surfing!

  26. Nice topic in video and Im living in Uruguay 🇺🇾 southamerica and here we have little bit restrictions but almost normal life and freedom for people over 60 is normal life
    I suggest you take a look about here ☀️

  27. Personally, i will try not to be carried away ànd will not be dessuaded by the experience of others to fulfill my dreàm. Some people’s action are influenced by media and other people’s perception. I refrain doing that because if i did that, i will never have what i have today. This time it is pandemic and i know nothing will stay forever. All countries are unexperienced handling this kind of issue, therefore i will give the country a chance to recover. So….before you leap out , you better think many times especially if you already had financially and emotionally invested in the country. Patience is a virtue that all westerners has to learn. Do not go with the exodus because you might end up with no home and no country. Every country has their own flaws, there is always going to be issues like pandemic, flood, typhoon, earthquakes, political unrest. The world is always changing. There is no perfect place.You can run but you can not hide. Living in fear is man’s worst enemy.

    Good luck to all of you! I am sure the Filipinos will miss you.

  28. This immigration spokesperson Dana Sandavol is so out of touch with reality her head is buried in the sand. How can someone in immigration be so out of touch with foreign visitors? Typical of the Philippines.

  29. Filipino’s leaving the country means they have a workng visa abroad. For ordinary Filipino, we don’t need to leave. Very much safer here comparing to other countries. So much foreigners remained in the country like Mactan, Cebu City and in Visayas island. A massive swab testing undertaken by the govt was so effective. We now have passed more than 5 million test Remember we are 115 million but the death are very low at 8,000 compared to natural deaths yearly around Ph at 259,000 in 2018, The massive test purpose is to arrest the infection while its assymtomatic and mild but not in serious condition and high percent recovery was noted.Other countries has different ideas in attacking infections and they have more deaths petcentage The infections found in testings are mostly assymtomatic,and mild at more than 92 percent.The infections reported daily lightly above 1,000, but we are more than 7,650 islands.in the datas, graphs is going down from months of September up to this writing. Above 70 percent of this islands in Ph are covid free. Covid are only in dense areas like metro manila, davao ,laguna, cavite areas in Luzon with huge population.If Ph didnt enforced the mask, distancing and other restrictions at dense areas maybe death may reach 100,000 or over…thanks god bless u…

  30. For anyone contemplating retirement in SE Asia or even Latin America, at this time, I would think very carefully about it as the immigration and insurance regulations worldwide are in a state of flux and you may be in the middle of the process and have the program terminated or modified.   I have been retired in Thailand for 10 years and the retirement process has become more difficult with new financial and health insurance requirements and regulations, erratic or arbitrary enforcement of old rules and increasingly hostile immigration officers. I decided to try Vietnam and initially obtained a one year tourist visa as they have no retirement visa. Shortly after, immigration required that you to leave the country every 30 days! Scratch that. Next, I contacted a visa agent in Malaysia about the MM2H retirement visa. I met the financial requirements but needed to cash in some “hard assets” and let them season in the bank for 3 months. The agent was insistent that I sign up and pay over $2500US to get the process started but I sensed a problem and hesitated. 3 months later Malaysia cancelled the MM2H visa. I doubt I would have seen any of that money back. The Philippines was next on the list and I did not like the way they handled to covid situation and then they cancelled the SSRV. Now I have an agent in a Latin American country who is trying to get me an investment visa for a $40,000 US deposit into a bank there. I have already paid $1550US for services plus several hundred in “fees” due for FBI, Oregon state and Thailand police background checks, certification of documents, certified mail etc. Well today I checked the tracking status of the documents I sent by certified mail for the police checks and they indicated “unsuccessful physical delivery”! All my personal data is in that package including SS number, copy of passport, credit card data etc. Throw in the current restrictions for travel and I have a feeling this is only the beginning of this nightmare.

  31. I suppose if people leave and other people aren’t allowed to enter, the math favors an exodus. Does anyone know how many people left vs entered in 2019?

  32. There is an excemption to the rule of age restrictions; and that is a 65 yr old or older person can go out IF LIVES ALONE, OR DOES NOT HAVE ANYONE, AT THE MOMENT, TO GET HIM ESSENTIAL THINGS. But It really is stupid for the Philippine gov’t to put travel restrictions but not give exceptions, like for those essential travelers, for any traveler with a negative swab test.
    But let’s go the USA. What is it that Americans are thinking that is going to happen to America if people continue ignoring restrictions, and refuse to wear masks, and refuse vaccines.
    It’s simple, deaths will continue up to the millions, until the heard immunity happens, and by then, America will be the only economy in the world that’s very significantly diminished.

  33. I lived in Mexico, Nicaragua and Ecuador and the Philippines is both less expensive and safer. I also lived in Thailand and the immigration is an absolute nightmare. The grass is always “seemingly” greener on the other side. This Covid thing will pass. Life here in Lapu-Lapu has been pretty easy going despite some restrictions and hassles.

  34. I am 100% against the covid Vax!! BUT, if the Airline requires a vaccine to board the Plane to travel to S.E Asia….Guess what!! I am taking the stupid shot:)

  35. In the long run here. It looks like the Philippine government is going to do some back pedaling. Because of the loss of much revenue as they’ll lift their restrictions.

  36. I’m currently living in Cebu City, moved here since February 2020. Came here right before the lockdown starts.,., I’m actually loving it here, not many foreigners around like before and dating is easier. I’m using Tinder app and upgrade to gold member, paying around 850 Pesos for 6 months through G-cash app promo purchase (1 time) in local currency. It’s worth it since everyone are wearing masks and can’t see their faces when out and about, so using the app to find dates is the way to go. Also you can choose the radius in kilometers to find girls near your location, so they don’t have to travel far to come and see you.

  37. I think they will not allow anyone to travel, USA or anywhere else, they wont force you you take it, but they will take away your rights , so you do have to take it, this is the plan of the WHO, this will be enforced in almost every country. If you do not want to take the vaccine, you will not even be allowed even in bars ,, ect…

  38. This is what happen when PH president allies more with CCP than USA. There’s over 4 million + Filipinos living and working in America than China and send their remittances here. We need a new leader who will go for democracy than socialism type of gov.
