I O and many Thais, just can't get their heads around the fact that some people can take half a year off work if they want, maybe by working all hours they can, and that other thing called SAVING money for a long break from work or is it just jealousy. or like me many years ago, work all year without a holiday hand my notice in before Xmas got all the holiday money + the money from the first week money in hand,plus what i had been saving all year and take off on my travels,for as long as i could make the money last, go home and get a new job or in some cases was taken back on.

Exactly, Im working in a Oil and Gas on a 21 days on  and 7 days off shift. And with working about 6 months per year I bank enough overtime to get paid 40 hours per week for the rest of 6 months I am not working.

Easy to have a half a year holiday like that. And I couldn’t take this 21 and 7 schedule for more than 6 months straight anyway.

Digital nomads aren't really tourist, that's called 'working online' and the real purpose should be conveyed to immigration .

Working online (for a business outside of Thailand) isn't considered as working in Thailand, so these persons are still considered tourists.

For example here we had a case where the person told the IO that he is working online and the IO still allowed him to enter Thailand: https://forum.thaivisa.com/topic/1128028-i-was-given-a-warning-by-an-io-at-dmk-thoughts/

Whether immigration will create another visa category for 'working digital nomads' is another story.

Immigration doesn't create visa categories, this is the job of the Ministry Of Interior.

In the case that you mentioned, the immigration officer doesn't know how to read English invoices beyond the elementary so he didn't really understand that he was working online in Thailand most of the time and not in other countries.

 

Working online is a relatively new phenomena in Thailand and few Thai know of the details.

I would imagine very soon these airlines are going to get <deleted> off with the Thai immigration the amount on a daily basis they are rejecting,

One way around this would be dont fly long haul into Thailand maybe to Malaysia at least it's a short flight and spend your money there

Good point. I usually fly Air Asia from Perth, change planes in KL, then on to Don Muang. So if I was refused entry I'd be returned to KL. No worries at all, I'll get a bus from the airport to the lovely city of Malacca and have a very nice time dining on Chinese/Indian/Malay food and satay & cold beers in Jonker Street at night.

I would think the airlines would be very happy to sell a vacant seat at full price.

The logistics of carrying a rejected person are more complex than of a regular passenger, not too sure they need the hassle.

Depends on how many percent of denied persons agree to pay for the ticket back.

If they refuse to pay the airline has to pay for transporting them back.

I wonder, if that person boarded with a valid visa and flight  out they may balk at giving him a free ride home. Wasn't one person refusing to pay for a ticket told he would be taken to a jail.

100% pay for their tickets back.

Else they stay in the immigration cell.

Do not forget still pay for the immigration cell as well, around 700 baht per day if I am not mistaken and it’s not Pattaya 500 baht room standards either

Can not recall where I read but if airline accepted someone without proper visa and a valid flight out , they could be responsible to fly that person back for free but unsure if it works when it comes to Thailand

They are telling him to get a non-O when they almost certainly know that he won't qualify for one! Very scummy behaviour.

 

Oh well, that's a few thousand Euros that Thailand won't be getting - do as others say and go somewhere else where you will no doubt be welcomed!

 

These reports are becoming almost daily now, something needs to be done about getting it out into the public domain.

"These reports are becoming almost daily now..."

Even if they were reported almost daily, which they are not, it would amount to how many? Four or five personally reported here, i.e. when it actually happened to them?   Hearsay stories about something that they, or their friend, heard don't count.
