  1. Seems like the guy making these FTF certs in Thailand may be a bit of a scam after all. Lots of Thais now posting negative things about him after recommending him previously! I am making other arrangements for my wife now,
  2. From my tgia policy re cancellation :- 7. Refund of Insurance Premium The Company will refund the Insured Personthe insurance premium that has been paidby the Insured Person after deductingthe actual international fund transfer fees and difference of currency exchange rate upon the occurrence of any of following cases: 7.1 The Insured Personhas not been granted a visa and/or certificate of entry; 7.2 The Insured Personchanges the date of departure and/or arrival.

  3. I got my policy via tgia a couple of days ago and it starts on the day I arrive and nothing about any waiting period.

  8. Hi Howerde, thanks. Yes I managed to get a PDF file from them and it is pretty much as you said. Just got to get the COE now. Cheers.
  9. I'm trying to get my head around the minimum US$100k Covid-19 insurance required for a Certificate Of Entry (COE) into Thailand. I understand that it has to be for the length of the visa. So for a 90 day non-O visa (based on marriage to a Thai) then the insurance is only needed for 90 days. I presume that the 100k must be for medical expenses and not just repatriation expenses. Is there a list of approved insurance companies that must be used or can I just go online and get insurance from any company? I am over 65 and currently live in the UK. It
