  1. I doubt the locals pay that much and the minute you start trying to agree a fare is when it turns into a rip-off charter. I think I'll rent an electric bike instead.
  2. I mean the shared ones that do a fixed route (not the rip-off charter ones) and how much is it to go from Chaweng to Lamai?
  3. Just go to immigration and make the application. What are you afraid is going to happen? The worst thing is they'll decline the application and if they do you can get those Covid-19 extensions through an agency although they're three times the price of the standard route.
  4. You'll need to get tested before departure, isolate at home for 10 days and do 2 home tests at a cost of £210. https://www.gov.uk/guidance/how-to-quarantine-when-you-arrive-in-england I can't see any chance of the vaccine situation in Thailand being advanced enough to get round that by June.
  5. It isn't and is unlikely to become available privately before June. But at the current rate of vaccination and decline in cases plus the warmer weather, there should be very few cases of Covid in the UK by June so you can go there free of worry and get your free vaccination while you're there.
  6. Who said anything about imports? The Astrazeneca vaccines are being made here but still have to be purchased by the government.
  7. What WHO vaccine passport scheme? I can't find any evidence that WHO is working on such a scheme and that kind of thing isn't within their remit. Is the Thai government getting the WHO mixed up with the EU? I suppose they rhyme and such bumbling incompetence is to be expected from this government.
  8. Got everything done (visa transferred to new passport and extended) at MTT, no fine. I did need the letter from the British Embassy that VFS gave me. I'm not sure how easy it would be to get that if you applied direct with HMPO.
