    There are many things to consider.. It is not only the asq that will be waived. It could also possibly be no requirement for a pre covid test. Also the fit to fly paper should be of no meaning...

     

    Covid insurance for most people is included in the normal travel insurance yearly people have from their home country, but not before its own country lift travel restrictions on that country.

     

    Is a digital doctors print out that you had a vaccine enough or do they require a verifiable vaccine passport that does not exist? There are still tons of question, but I suspect they will be answered by 1. June IF they are still sandboxing Phuket which its seems they will.

    @ 150 TO 200K Per 7 day tourist package you won't need any of the above .. Just stupidly deep pockets

    Can the rose coloured glasses brigade please step forward and tell us all how it was that Thailand avoided the Songkran surge.

     

    Also all those people that told us about the spicy diet and warm weather fending off Covid. 
     

    Please, come forwards and explain to us your wisdom.

    I would like to come forward. It was nothing more than a misunderstanding

    Actually one of my fully vaccinated friends from the US has already booked... so on a factual basis you're wrong. The more important point is it's a starting point to get the Phuket economy moving again but it will be a very slow process.

    Can you share what he booked, was it just a flight or hotel as well? 

    They haven't announced any details yet sounds like he jumped in a bit early

    Hmmm..... the high quality things I liked back at home are sill expensive here.

    Beer, loose women, reckless driving, burning trash, littering, selfish actions.... aren't that appealing to me.

     

    However.... I DO like the food selection here.  Especially the fruit and vegetables.  Easier to eat a much more plant based diet here.

    Fruit and veges great as long as left in a bucket of paint thinners for 48 hours to remove poisons banned in the west.

    You know listening to the news here in Thailand about the school system in the US, I'm not sure that an education there would be better. It's no longer about math and science but more about teaching the different gender classes and how bad and privileged the white man is.  30 yrs ago I sent my US son to private school at a cost of $300/mo, so while the US has free education I wouldn't be using it today especially. I honestly think my daughters future will be happier here in Thailand.

    It's not just education but opportunities. Let's face it you can fail in these west and still get a six figure salary. Failure in Thailand will be probably only lead to a gig at 7/11 and for girls the allure of a side gig can be hard to resist 

     

  6. Most of the guys that trash Thailand give some excuse that absolutely blocks them leaving so having validated their status they continue to bash. 

    I don't believe that nonsense. Anybody can relocate their spouse, family, dog, parrot, ladyboy back to their home country. where there is a will there is a way. 

     

    I feel sorry for the children who's dad refuses to relocate them to first world life and opportunity usually BECAUSE he likes the cruisy life in LOS to much to leave.

    No dispensation.

     

    Next question i don't know. 

     

    Visa-exempt entry (not "visa on arrival") is now good for 45 days, it requires a return ticket. 

     

     

     

    Return or onward ticket? What are people doing now to satisfy immigration? Return ticket is not cheap and I'm heading back to LOS in the next few months

    Nonsense, I retired in Australia have great life, free health care collect my pension every 2 weeks and still have plenty leftover at the end of the months

    Agreed. With a pension card and rent assistance it's doable if you don't smoke $50 per 100 gram of tobacco and don't drink beer $50 for a case of 24 bottles. 

    I'm on the gold coast right near the beach and Cavill Ave paying $800 /month rent minus $280 rent assistance but I have to share with 2 others! I'm looking forward to heading back though to my condo and for me Thailand is a better lifestyle and never boring in Bangkok

  9. Google this as link not allowed. Anyhow both procedures are invasive with a bit of pain involved so why no swabs? 

     

    Siriraj Hospital has introduced a "new normal" for blood testing patients who can now book drive-through appointments via the hospital's "Siriraj Connect" application.

  10. A lot if guys in denial. If you married a dark skinned girl with home made tattoos and perfect non university English then it's 99.9% a BG and NOT worked in a shop or as a cashier but farang will believe anything. 

    Dating  websites are  loaded with girls who are sick and tired of Indian gang bangs and also looks starting to fade  and need farang to rescue them.

    I don't intend to pour sunshine on someone's rainy parade or negative expectations on who will or won't visit Thailand in the near future. But I have some insight into the bookings of packaged holidays in the Nordic countries. They're planning to resume flights into Phuket from October this year and they're almost fully booked. These travellers spend most of their time at or near their resorts so they would probably be fine with the sandbox model and its limitations. They may cancel but right now it looks like they're pretty optimistic. 

    How when a minister a few days ago said tour packages 150k baht 7 days. Are these packages being sold already?
