OA insurance - the issues

Recommended Posts

I do not fully grasp all the details in this thing with insurance and Non Immigrant O-A VISA but to my own understanding I thought that if I have (like you have) an insurance covering the demand from the Imiigration, I do NOT need to issue/apply for another new one?????

 

I am wrong??

This is a constructive list that hopefully will be read by, or forwarded to, the decision makers.

It's not a moan session, a place to ask questions, or to write your life story.

Please post the issues you see with the compulsory insurance, in a brief manner.

I don't know which card you have, but most travel insurances associated to credit cards have strong limitations, and mainly rarely work for trips longer than 30, 60 or 90 days at best.

They are "travel" insurances, not "expat" insurance.

Mine is 6 months, it used to be 12 months. Expat insurance?? The matter at hand is health insurance, which is more than adequately covered by my card insurance, plus I get travel parts as well.

Ok, what we want here are issues based on facts. Not speculations, guesses, questions etc.

Plenty of other threads on the topic for those.

Travel insurance of any kind Will be only valid on a tourist visa.

This is a significant issue.

The purpose of the exercise is to ensure OA visa holders are not a burden on the Thai medical system, through supposed non-payment of bills.

If that requirement is satisfied, then how it is satisfied should not matter.

Who among us truly retired  here have travel insurance? Not any my guess and it’s no different to self funded anyway. The fact is it’s not acceptable so what’s your point to the topic
