  1. I doubt it since now they have officials at the intersection of Thai/Foreign entry telling folks which way to go. Also... They want to scan the Thai Passports & there is not that scanner at foreign line also Thai's no longer fill in the TM6 arrival/departure cards
  2. About this whole issue of turning away folks with METV etc... Thailand can do as they please but, They should get their $#@! together with their foreign consulates that sell these visa's. IF not a tourist should be able to file a claim for the wasted airfare if turned around at BKK After all the Thai Consulates in which ever country is selling the Visa & can see the passport that they are inserting visa into. Why should the right hand of Thailand not know what the left hand wants? How is this the applicants fault AFTER they spend thousands to travel & many hours in the air. I really think those refused should have recourse if up to that point the followed official channels
  3. This is no longer possible Because the Thai Que has a simple scanner for Thai passport only entry, but the foreigner ques now have full finger printing equipment that is needed for entry. The Thai Que does not have such
  4. I have to admit I do not login & read often as it is pretty depressing. But when in the USA I do not watch or listen to the News either for the same reason. Over the years TVF has also been a resource for official visa steps/info etc. Other than that I do not view it as a relaxing social type platform
  5. But according to article.... "Deputy Minister of Public Health Satit Pitutecha said Wednesday (October 9) that the Thai government's long-implemented medical policy for tourists had led to a rise in foreigners seeking medical treatments in the country. " So as usual TIT & rules/Laws etc make no sense at all
  6. I have no idea but, Would make absolutely no sense at all to "be applied to immigrants applying for Non-Immigrant Visa “O-A” , who will stay in the country for no more than one year. " These so called medical tourist have the money & are coming for medical procedures. "They" are not the risk "Deputy Minister of Public Health Satit Pitutecha said Wednesday (October 9) that the Thai government's long-implemented medical policy for tourists had led to a rise in foreigners seeking medical treatments in the country. " Yet the longer than a year folks need no proof of insurance? I would say without scare mongering that the trend of reducing unfunded liability is obvious.
