No. Way. No common traveler is expected to have this preparation or knowledge if it is not expected of them. They bought a ticket to Phillipines, not China.

I had a similar experience flying within Schengen. I was denied boarding due to lack of Passport. I went to official government / EU / Schengen websites, but the gate agent steadfastly refused to accept or even *acknowledge* it. [She later grudgingly allowed boarding after clarifying with "management", and the airline issued apologies weeks afterwards].

No printed " proof" would have sufficed in that situation

Sorry about your situation. UA was wrong. They should make it right.
