Re: Mandatory quarantine for14days

There is no greasing of palms to choose the hotel you would like to be quarantined at. The hotels are allocated to flights by the MoH well before the flights arrive, it is all very well planned, organised and executed.

He didn't get "stopped". He checked with the immigration office prior to travel and was told of the requirement for the mother to be travelling with them for the first time. Now I understand. He should have checked with multiple people. You can't just ask one person and assume the answer ...

My current visa is linked to my former visa, which is... etc etc. I feel you underestimate the efficiency of the DoI. In 2011 I (ignorantly) entered ...
