  1. Yes, the URL is valid, worked yesterday (when I checked my on-line application at CW which was approved with a note 'please add your room number next time'). Right now it is also working. 'Normally' if you get can get to the third page -where there is a summary of data before you submit- it is OK. Maybe the fact that there is no previous on-line report confuses the system and data probably have to be added manually? No good advice but suggest giving them a call and explaining the situation.
  2. At least at CW, there is no 'reset' of the 90-day reporting date when extending retirement (this from recent experience, extended end of April, 90 day expires mid May). On the other hand there is no requirement to go there again for the 3-month 800k Baht requirement, though they will check this (from your bankbook) when you go for your next retirement extension.
  3. When doing a retirement extension at CW just go to the big reception desk , ask for a TM.7 and supplemental forms (usually these days if you ask for a TM.7 they will automatically give you the supplemental forms). No need to download them beforehand. You can fill in and sign the supplemental forms in 5 minutes, no special information required. Just make sure that the address on the TM.7 and the separate form where you confirm that you still live at...... is the same.
  4. Even the WHO apparently has reservations on the data pertaining to the safety of Sinovac according to this article: https://www.reuters.com/business/healthcare-pharmaceuticals/sinovac-covid-19-vaccine-effective-some-data-lacking-who-experts-2021-05-05/. Quote from the article: The experts said they had a "moderate level of confidence" that the risk of serious adverse effects was low in people aged 59 and less, but had a "low level of confidence" in the quality of evidence that such risk was also low for adults above 60. "We have low confidence in the quality of evidence that t
  5. It may be too late to stop the Indian variant. In London, almost 40% of sequenced samples now pertain to the B 1.617.2 variant https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-9561595/Coronavirus-HALF-Covid-cases-London-Indian-variant-data-suggests.html. However, the UK has a large Indian population and -until very recently- lots of flights from India which will have exacerbated the situation. Cases have been reported in numerous countries, including Indonesia (https://news.abplive.com/news/ india/indian-covid-variant-detected-in-morocco-indonesia-along-with-17-other-countries-know-why-this-variant-
  6. I do not have specific info on side effects of the Sinovac vaccine but two weeks ago there was a nice article in the Lancet describing side effects (NOT including rare conditions such as blood clots and the like) in people in the UK vaccinated with either Pfizer or AZ (mostly applying to first dose only as few second dose had been delivered). Each group consisted of ca 300,000 persons, so fairly limited. You have to read it for yourself (https://www.thelancet.com/journals/laninf/article/PIIS1473-3099(21)00224-3/fulltext), but some of the main observations: 1. Systemic side effects were
  7. It IS working right now at https://extranet.immigration.go.th/fn90online/online/tm47/TM47Action.do at least for checking the status of your on-line application. Browser: Google (on Win 10). Try clearing cache and cookies, not required to get in though. First tick the box with the red letters accepting conditions at the bottom of the page (you need to scroll down to see it).
  8. Same for the Dutch case: website of the Embassy clearly states that those returning to Thailand on a NON-O retirement and a valid re-entry permit require the 40/400k insurance and I believe this rule is now employed at most European embassies. Quote from the Thai embassy in The Hague: 'When requesting for a COE, holders of a valid Re-entry Permit (Retirement) who wish to return to Thailand using the Re-entry Permit (Retirement), are required to submit a copy of health insurance policy which covers the length of stay in Thailand with no less than 40,000 THB coverage for out-patient treatme
  9. By making an on-line appointment, you can significantly reduce the time you are at CW.
  10. Actually China is also working on an mRNA vaccine, some details here: https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC7377714/. It goes under the name of ARCoV and final trials are supposed to start 'overseas' in May 2021 (https://www.reuters.com/business/healthcare-pharmaceuticals/chinas-mrna-covid-19-vaccine-may-start-late-stage-trial-may-state-media-2021-04-13/).
  11. Let's get some actual data on vaccination coverage and reported deaths with covid (note this does not mean that 100% of these actually died from covid), obtained by plotting data in ourworldindata.com. The death figure is maybe more telling than infections. It is not clear how many of these infections are asymptotic i.e. picked up 'accidently' during contact tracing or random screening. Furthermore, vaccines were originally designed to prevent severe cases (and death) rather than infection. I have chosen a number of countries with a high vaccination coverage (one should include countries with
  12. Just submitted an on-line 90 day report for CW (Win 10, Chrome). Digital form where you fill in details (two pages) is still the same. I always keep a copy of a previous submission to make sure it is identical in terms of address (you can check this on the third page of the digital form before you press accept and do the actual submission). Got the page with the yellow PENDING note immediately. Before the outing of the website, it took 2-3 working days to get approval. We'll see.
