  1. “This has to be grossly underestimated considering the number of tests being done

     

    Until Thailand gets its testing ramped up based on stats from other countries these figures are way off.

     

    There is only one proven way to estimate virus spread and that is extensive random testing, why Thailand is reluctant to test is quite frankly a gross failure or intentional “

  2. Does anyone know the bus schedule from Pattaya bus Station to Eakami and Eakami to Pattaya ? 
     

    I walked by a few days ago and the schedule looked different than in normal operation with fewer busses coming and going but everything did looked operational and well run . 
     

    I can not find any updated information on the web about schedule changes or if it’s possible to buy tickets in advance to guarantee ticket so you don’t arrive at bus station to travel and find a long wait or busses that are running full or sold out . Thank you for any information, comments or suggestions.

    What is the best company to hire van from Bangkok to Jomtien ? I see Grab has that option but price quite high compared to some of the prices I paid before . The price quoted on the Grab app does that include tolls ? If anyone has a good reliable van service to call for service from Bangkok to a Pattaya please post or PM me thanks [emoji604]

    Do you mean Pib?
     
    That was in regard to extension of stay, which is another long story still being sorted out.
     
    it had nothing to do with re-entry on a re-entry permit.
     
    No IO anywhere that I have seen has suggested a need for insurance entering on a re-entry permit.
     
     A re-entry permit refers to an already granted permission to stay.  Entering in one does not give any additional time.  Your permission to stay period remains exactly  the same as it was. As it is an al;ready granted period of stay new requirements don't come into play.
     
    New period of permission to stay is generated by a new entry under a still valid visa, or by an extension of stay.  Pib's discussion with CW imm (which may have yielded wrong info, time will tell) was in reference to a future extension of stay.
     
    The Police Order explicitly states that already granted periods of stay are unaffected.
     
     

    Thanks for that detailed information Sheryl ....

  5. As it sounds like he is voming on a re-entry permit thete is no need to do this.

     

    Coming in on a re-entry does not generate a new permission to stay. He id still under the same permission to stay already granted which the Police Order makes clear is not affected.

     

    Even if IOs at Arrivals start enforcing this on people whose OAs wrre issued prior to the 31st -- which they hopefully will not -- no implication for someone entering on a re-entry permit.

    So if someone bought a re entry permit when they got their retirement extension and few months ago and was planning to use their re entry permit to get back in to Thailand worry free after going back to the US for Thanksgiving holiday should they now be worried about being denied entry back into Thailand after their holiday even if they have valid retirement visa extension , valid re entry permit they purchased and stamped in passport , 20,000 baht in cash and over 6 months left on passport before it expires if they don’t buy this insurance ?

  6. So you are saying prices have remained the same even after the order for government hospitals to increase fees for foreigners went into place a few days ago ? I had bloodwork and scans done there last year and will do the same tests next month so are you saying that prices will be the same for me next month as they were a year ago ?

    I think the question at this point is, what type was your last actual visa before you switched to getting extensions of stay?

     

    If it was an O-A visa, you MIGHT at this point get hit with the insurance requirement post Oct. 31... meaning they would hit people on retirement extensions today who previously had O-A visas. That's not certain, but is looking likely.

     

    If it was some other type of visa like an O or a B or an ED, then at this point, no sign those are going to be targeted, at least, not yet.

     

    Retirement extension was done and at the same time bought for 1000 and had added a re-entry permit in case I wanted to leave country for vacation or any reason and re enter keeping my retirement visa extension valid .

     

     

     

  8. Big difference in brands a models , there are really only about 4+ top companies making state of the art dental implants and they have been making them and evolving their models for decades . On the other hand there are now not hundreds but thousands of companies making “ similar and knock off products ( some that are ok and some that are laughable ) all over China and other countries-that have very high failure rates and breakage history so to just compare an implant price from two different clinics without the specific makes and model details is almost pointless . How much priority do you put on what will be a vital body part for something as important as chewing and implanted in you head basically as people just look at price and not much else [emoji15]

     

     

     

     

  9. Will this new law possibly stop someone from coming back into Thailand who flew out for a vacation with a valid retirement visa and valid re-entry permit if they arrive after the 31st of October without proof of health insurance and the 20,000 baht in hand that was also mentioned to have if one wanted to be guaranteed re entry ? The requirements for being here along with the exchange rate changes that keep making the Thai baht more expensive to buy seems like it will possibly discourage many from making Thailand their home ?

     

     

     

    I am referring to the Re-Entry Permit I paid 1000 baht for when I got my retirement extension so I could travel out of the country and come back with all my current visa’s valid
