Theres a special level of bureaucratic a$$#holery involved in this one... 

 

I get the need for a health certificate, that makes sense. 

But for Thai’s to need a letter from their Embassy to travel home involves a degree of dumbfv<kery usually reserved for the requirements placed on foreign retirees in Thailand.

 

And now how much has it cost this airline to fly a nearly empty plane ?

they are effectively passing responsibility for Thai citizens over to other countries and disowning their own citizens 

 

forgive them for they know not what they do

This can never be forgiven, what a huge blunder this is...the only thing Prayuth can do now is to send a plane and pick them  up, when they arrive he should be on his knees next to the landing strip prostrating himself to all those citizens and ask them for forgiveness...

a letter from the Thai embassy or consulate where they are announcing their intention to return home. 

 

This part I totally don't understand. A Thai national wants to travel back to their home country. Why should they haved to get a document from the Thai Embassy/Consulate wherever they're staying confirming that they want to return home...

 

What's the point, other than needless bureaucracy...

How dare these Thais be allowed overseas to seek a better life or improved earning opportunities. They should be punished and not allowed to return to their home nation under any circumstances (including global pandemics)!  Thai Rak Thai?

Just remember Thai officialdom treats most Thais almost equally as bad as Foreigners

I wonder if the poor Thais are being force to run between NZ immigration and the Thai embassy to get letters requesting that the Thais stuck in NZ to be granted a 30 day extension of stay.  And force to stand in long lines potentially exposing them to Covid-19.  And forcing them to travel when they should stay put.  You know, like Thailand does to NZ citizens stuck in Thailand. Talk about being stuck between a virus and two bureaucracies.
