Poll -- Record your "Long Stay" health insurance requirement predictions

Health Insurance Requirements Prediction Poll

It has been announced that people applying for O-A visas in their home countries will have a health insurance requirement starting this July. O-A visas are a one year visa for people age 50 and over.

 

There is currently controversy and lack of clarity about whether other visas / annual extensions in Thailand will be included in this requirement. Either starting in July or at a later date.

 

This topic is a MULTIPLE CHOICE poll for people to record their predictions. 

In other words, choose either one choice or as many as you like.

I think there should be a requirement even for short term tourists to prove on arrival that they carry travel insurance 

lol! the immigration line ups would extend to saraburi!

The only issue I see on that is expecting the immigration official to vet insurance documentation in a multitude of languages.

Oh, so you have moved the queue to the check in areas at London, Delhi and Beijing? But surely there would be no point checking for them there, if they were not going to be checked at Bangkok?

No passport, no board, no ticket no board, no insurance no board.

Save the line up at Thai entry point.

Harder to police at land crossings but can be done with modern communication systems
