The special chartered flight is under the repatriation category. Although Filipino returnees pay for their tickets, they all get full assistance from the government from Bangkok airport, upon arrival in Manila for their SWAB test, hotel accommodation, food and transportation back to their home provinces. Filipino tourists who are stranded are given the option of paying for their own or availing government funded facilities depending.

The quarantine procedures in Manila are as follows:

  1. Mandatory COVID-19 test (OWWA pays for OFWs, self-payment for those who are non-OFWs);
  2. 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
  3. 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.

Overseas Workers Welfare Administration (OWWA) will pay for the COVID-19 test, accommodation and food of OFW repatriates. OFWs need to register at http://oasis.owwa.gov.ph and Red Cross https://e-cif.redcross.org.ph before their flight.

Maraming salamat po at mabuhay!
