    Hi, my wife and I arrived on 11th March, originally planned to return back to the UK on 8th April via Clark - Dubia to Birmingham on an Emerates flight.
    We did try to find a flight back when it was announced that all flights would end on 20th but couldn't find one from Clark and as we are in the Bulacan area couldn't travel to Manila as this area was in lockdown.
    I sure there are a number of members who are in a similar situation although I couldn't find any on the site.
    Does anyone know if there is any group on this site or any others that are discussing how to get back to the UK?
    The British Embassy don't seem interested, maybe because they don't know how many UK citizens are affected.
    Any ideas?

    Saw something similar on sky news earlier, brits trying to get back to UK from Bangkok, lots of cancelled flights, they have ended up paying around £2500 each for business class from Bangkok, the other alternative was just hunker down and sit it out, but no timescale on that.

    That's what we are thinking of doing, we have our own house and it's on a fairly large plot, so not much chance of meeting someone who could infect us if we stay in our house.
    We have been under quarantine and providing temperature readings twice a day to the local barangay, who was concerned, as we've recently visited Tenerife. They asked us to fill in a questionair when we arrived. We've passed the temperature checks and due to get certificates that show were clear tomorrow.
    Not sure if the checks we had prove anything!

    To be honest mate, you are probably as safe there as anywhere else at this moment in time. I wouldnt be wanting to be cooped up with anything between 200/300 others for 15 or so hours at this time, so my advice would be to stay as you are, if you have work back here Im sure your employer will be fully understanding about your predicament. So sit tight stay safe.
