    So you pay thousands of dollars to travel book hotels and then get to the airport and get turned back, would you get any refunds?

  3. Nick Smith says:

    Nice idea and a practical solution

    So how about flight purchases ?

    When to purchase that?

    Prior or after the test?

    Not all people can afford to pay for a flight to then be told they can't fly because tested positive, and not all people can afford to pay for flight cancellation insurance, which I imagine would be part of the flight purchase package and requirements

    I received a covid test recently and was told if did not hear anything back within 24 hours then carry on because results are negative

    So no need to drag ourselves to the airport to gamble on a positive or not

    Still seems a complex solution once taking a look at the bigger picture

  4. Norris Bethke says:

    Thx fir the vid..I work for an airline and fly standby, so that could complicate things, but we’ll see..like the test then board concept..but, once again, things wiil become more definitive as we go..🤞👍🏻✌🏻🕊

  5. Scott Spence says:

    Hi Rekay, I would 100% take a swab prior to departure and would have no issue with being re-tested upon arrival. I am a healthcare professional and will get the US vaccine when its available. Thank you for keeping us updated. Aloha

    It won’t matter you get tested in NYC when arriving to Manila you will get tested again then you get a false positive in Manila then you get a go to your room card if you are connecting to Cebu you get another test I doubt this will change local Philippines governments are paranoid it all comes down boosting your immune system with vitamins and minerals instead of eating Cheetos, Ding Dongs and sitting watching tv with no exercise

    Definitely, I'd say this is good news also. I had planned to visit the Philippines in late March so needless to say, I'm ready for some good news. My only concern with this….what happens when I, or someone else travels abroad, tests negative, only to subsequently contract the virus in the country we visit, and with little means to afford the indefinite amount of time we have to spend in that country before testing negative again are essentially forced to stay and reschedule flights, alert our employers…ect? It seems like a great way to get people traveling, but i know that many people have been greatly effected in terms of not only finance, but mental health from the isolation created by the pandemic. It would seem that the countries may have to set up designated hotels that would essentially be strictly for those who may run into this situation. Also, expecting it to be free of charge is not rational for the traveler, but also not going to be a budgeted expense for the trip so expecting the traveler to pay at the time they're required to stay isn't really rational for the establishment either. That is the one flaw i see in this idea…but if there were a way to potentially attach the debt from the covid stay to the passport, only allowing additional travel once paid, then that's an idea. Also, perhaps some governments would supplement the stay of the the few people that had this unfortunate situation simply because they still would benefit far greater from the money brought in from having tourists free to visit once again. I'm interested to hear your thoughts on this matter. Also, id be interested to know if you've learned of the potential breakthrough made by the University of Pittsburgh regarding isolating the very smallest molecule that "completely and specifically" neutralizes the virus.

    Good video Reekay, I belive CEB is doing a covid test now. But cost is P5,000. Test within 36 hrs.of flight. Family of 4 is P20,000, then we need to see if you have to test when you also leave the country you visit. If so could be another P20,000 witch is way to expencive. Hope testing will be cheaper so famlies can travel.

  9. Kim Wetteland says:

    Not Thailand. Because the corrupt Thai officials needs to fill up their own hotels or part ownership hotel owned by family members.

    Anybody that thinks reasonably and logically would choose to test before a flight.. I need to travel back to the states, and right now there are three airports you can connect at to onward flights.. Hong Kong, Narita Japan, and Manilla, you only have to have the temperature certificate, and you connect to the states.. The rest of them you must have the PRA negative with differing days since the negative came back.. Incheon, Doha, and a few others, but those are the main hubs to get out of Asia… I have read on FaceBook that Vincente Sotto has a drive thru testing with appointment, and the test is free.. Thanks for this good news, Henry… Bruce

    I think the idiots running things like to run things like shit. I don't see how this will help them run things like complete shit any more than they currently are. So why would they do it?

    Clearly I live in America. Seattle……
