UPDATE: The Third Special Chartered Flight will be pushed through. However, securing clearances and permits will take five days to finish so the next special chartered flight will be moved to July 16, 2020. Bangkok Vista Holiday Co., Ltd. will be sending an email today to everyone who registered. Meanwhile, we will keep the google registration form open until today for those who still want to join.
Following the successful First and Second Special Chartered Flights June 25 and July 5 respectively, a Third Special Chartered Flight from Bangkok to Manila is now being arranged for Filipinos who want to return home and are willing to pay for their one-way air ticket.
Minimum number of passengers is 180 for the third batch to go through.
One-way airfare ranges from 7,500 THB to 9,000 THB depending on the number of passengers that will join the said Special Chartered Flight. If there is enough number of passengers, a tentative flight will be on 13 July 2020. If you are interested, kindly fill up this google form (http://tiny.cc/5uq1rz) with your full name (as it appears in your passport), mobile number and email.
Deadline for the submission of names is on 9 July 2020 (Thursday) at 16.00 hrs (4:00 PM).
Please note that at least 180 passengers are needed to make this flight possible. 250 is the maximum number of passengers that can be accommodated. The special chartered flight will be canceled if the minimum number of passengers is not met.
If there is a sufficient number, Bangkok Vista Holiday will email those who have signed up together with details for the collection of payments. Please also note that a tentative flight will be scheduled after all payments are collected. All the payments will be needed so that a chartered flight agreement can be signed.
Please note again that in case the payments are collected and the chartered flight is canceled for some reason, a refund of payment shall be properly made.

Meanwhile, the quarantine procedures in Manila are as follows:
- Mandatory COVID-19 test (OWWA pays for OFWs, self-payment for those who are non-OFWs);
- Mandatory quarantine to await result of COVID-19 test (OWWA pays for quarantine for OFWs, self-payment for non-OFWs or possible free quarantine at a ship managed by the Philippine Coast Guard); and
- If COVID-19 test is negative, repatriates can go home. Those living in the provinces can already book a flight or ship home. If positive, repatriates will be admitted in a DOH managed facility.
