    Does anyone know the precise details of what happens if you try and fly to Manila? I am currently in BKK, thinking about whether to stay here and then fly to Manila, or go back to HK and they fly back via BKK (or somewhere else that is not greater China). I have two passports (neither of which is Chinese) so wondering if there are any good options and exactly what they check and when....

    IMHO you are seriously taking more risk by flying around countries especially after husband having gone through bit of rough patch.. Also isnt it better to stay away from BKK and go somewhere remote like Koh Samui or any other place away from city!!

    Can't really answer your question. It is not meant to be the passport but the travel history (it is meant to be a non-racial policy). I would stay in Bangkok then travel direct to Manila but that is just my opinion.

    Airports and planes are half empty. Ditto hotels. China has locked down so many cities, very few chinese people are able to leave and go on holiday. So what am I supposed to be scared of? HK has more cases than Thailand now anyway. Anyway, I had a conference to attend so I'm here. And I have a job in Manila that requires me to be there in person, so I need to figure out the best way to get there. If countries blacklist HK (as they may, given our fearless leaders utter incompetance) then I just have to leave to be able to work. Hubby had flu - just like millions of other people around the world, many of whom died. Before this coronavirus scare, nobody would have said "don't travel in case you get flu!".

    Since none of you guys will have HK passport stamps, just don't tell them you are coming from there. You've obviously been in Oz all the time (i think you guys are citizens, aren't you?) and then in BKK and now fly to Manila. Coronavirus? Never heard of that.

    I wonder what the penalty for lying to Immigration officials in the Philippines is, and for trying to cheat a system they've put in place to keep their citizens safe

    Don't think I'd be volunteering to find out, especially in Moving's situation as I assume company directors are registered someplace.

    They blacklist thousands of foreigners every year and are proud of it. Say the wrong thing and not only are you refused entry but you won't be coming back anytime soon. Disaster for Katherine.

    American Airlines, prolongs suspensions.


    American Airlines is extending the suspension of its mainland China and Hong Kong service until late April, citing low demand as coronavirus continues to spread. The carrier said it now plans to resume its flights to mainland China from Los Angeles and Dallas/Fort Worth in April 25, almost a month later than it previously targeted. Dallas/Fort Worth-to-Hong Kong will resume on April 24, and a day later from Los Angeles. The move follows a similar adjustment by partner carrier British Airways.

    Thanks. So far I had been erring on the side of being honest because it's the right thing to do. Knowing that they also blacklist people means I think I will just continue to do that! I'm quite well know in my industry there so it wouldn't take much to get reported.....
