The other day there was a Canadian from Alberta who persuaded the PAL crew to let him board the plane based on his provincial health insurance. I don't know how things worked out once he got to Manila. Maybe I missed some posts. Covid insurance is required to enter the Philippines but is it required to renew a tourist visa? Maybe the BI hasn't considered that. A One Health Pass caught me by surprise at the Toronto airport. Fortunately one of the air Canada counter people helped me get registered. The One Health Pass is a bit of a joke. You can enter any data for vaccination and get the big green checkmark and a QR code.
