    It simply means that, if you had left your Filipino family and PH before or after 0001H March 22, 2021, you must wait until after 2359H April 21, 2021 to be able to reenter PH, if you have a valid visa.

    Should an emergency situation occur in your Filipino family that requires your immediate return to PH before2359H April 21, 2021, then you may write a request for humanitarian consideration to the NTF COVID-19 Chairperson or his duly authorized representative pursuant to Rule B.1.b.v of IATF Resolution No. 103 (March 18, 2021). This option has also been made known thru the media.

    By the way, Philippine Air Lines sought clarification and it was confirmed that only the foreign spouse of a Filipino citizen whose marriage is in accordance with provisions of the Family Code of the Philippines shall be allowed entry as an exception. Further, foreign adopted child/ren of Filipino citizens are included among the exception.

    There is really no need to try to fathom out or make sense of any country's rules if you are not its citizen. In the same way that Our Maker's thoughts and ways are higher than that of all peoples', so are governing authorities' policy thoughts and ways higher than that of constituents'. Either you follow the rule or you do not follow it.

    Yes! If you are a person described as an 'alien' in the Philippines you are second (or lower) class - and don't forget it! If you are a Filipino in many countries of the World (there are exceptions, of course) you are not called an alien as these civilized countries avoid using derogatory terms for their guests and Filipinos are treated as equal or, in many cases (by law), as superior.

    I strongly disagree with your unfair perception and opinion of derogation on our part.

    Being non-native speakers of the English language, we as a nation of 170 languages simply differentiate between citizens and non-citizens using the traditional legal words "alien" or "foreigner" borrowed from British-derived American laws, no derogation intended, mainly because our legal system operates by the principle of stare decisis, with precedents from our colonial past. Ours is a commonsensical use of borrowed foreign words with no offense meant.

    Unlike developed countries to where people from all over immigrate like ants to the cake only to wake up to realities of racial or social injustice, Philippine society is not "woke" even though it tries to keep up with the world's legislation trends. We do not feel excited need to be as discrimination-sensitive or discrimination-conscious as people are in civilized countries, and so we do not bother to browse an English dictionary to look for politically correct or better-sounding synonyms.

    Yes, definitely! If China successfully invades PH, yet may God forbid it, I believe it will take over the country's local governance. It is the Chinese moral code, Confucius way.

    Oh, I assure you we Filipinos share the thoughts and ways of our leaders and vice versa even though our general public may not necessarily comprehend the crafting and rationale of our public policies in full.

    Most of us, being poor, are not pretentious to fathom out or challenge the sense of changing rules in our country, especially at this time, because our more immediate concern is how and where to obtain tomorrow's meals for our families.

    That we have trustworthy, competent persons willing to serve as governing authorities at this time of protracted public health emergency and calamitous economy when China is encroaching on our shores and a world war is looming in our seas is, in and by itself, merciful and great blessing from the Almighty. The rest of us do our part by praying fervently for God's hand to strengthen and guide them instead of thinking up clever contentions that give delusion of being the better.

    Just takes the stroke of a pen to change it! In my country I would be arrested for calling one of my foreign guests an "alien". But then, we don't deport them for joining a Senior Citizen queue either.

    Russia/Ukraine might just beat them to it! The concept of MAD has served us well but now it merely allows the bullies the freedom to trample over everyone.

    Stroke of a pen, indeed! Over here, it takes bill drafting in two legislative houses, committee hearings, session debates, bicameral agreement, and the top executive's approval to make a change of wording in existing law. If such change is not urgent, the matter takes the backseat to be overtaken by another congress and then to start from scratch all over again. Should it finally merit top executive approval, it will take jurisprudence in the courts, usage by legal professionals, education by the academe, dissemination by the media, and acceptance by the local community before the new legal word becomes part of the Philippine environment.
