Can I tavel to Khon Kean and Back?

Recommended Posts

Hello all,

 

I need to fly my son back to Khon Kean as Yai and my ex want him in the village for a bit, I have had him for the last month as I took him to the UK, however he is with me in CM now slowly going insane as he has been kept in doors most days. 

Anyway I am wondering, will I be allowed to fly to KK and back to CM the same day? the village leader has agreed to let me son into the village, half of me thinks he is best off in the village out in isaan with his gran as opposed to in a busy condo in chiang mai, then I dont know how the villages will deal with it if they get it?

 

Question is, is he better off in isaan, more so in a village where he spend half the year (other half with me), I send him to a privrate school but thats now closed down so even less reason to need to go, but I do get Yai as she is worried and I can see her point tbf.

 

Can I even fly though?

 

What would you do?

 

Thanks

Isaan folk in BKK, who now have no job, are scampering back to their Isaan families, some for sure taking the bug back with them....Tricky situation....

Take care of your family first, worry about the virus and other people's opinions later.  Your best bet and safest is to drive in your own car and avoid people where you can.  get to the village and drop off the kid.  Stay there if you can, if not, just drive back. 

He may not have a car.Also have they stopped domestic flights,i am not sure.

No!

Domestic flights might have been cut back but still operating.

Thai Air Asia flight CNX to KKC at 7:15 today operated as normal.

No health documents or the like needed for domestic flights.

Car travel around our area (not KK city) this morning without any checkpoints or the like.

At first sight you would not feel anything of a state of emergency.

Will he be picked up at the airport?

Today:

Air Asia CNX - KKC arrived 8:05 (ahead of schedule)

KKC - CNX departed at 13:17 (ahead of schedule)

 

Of course take passport with you (mandatory for domestic flights).

What date did you arrive from UK?

Do you have some proof that you are residing in Thailand?

But might still be safer than in a city (like CM).

No need for close contact, no need to use public transport.

What part of "STAY HOME" is so difficult for people to understand?

If you travel you're being selfish and irresponsible.   

 

and idiot.

Personally, I would have sorted this issue out earlier but my take is...a cramped shoebox apartment in Chiang Mai is no place to be spending the next few weeks...what if there's a total lockdown and you can't even get out of your apartment to buy food? Of course, it may never get that bad but it's always best to assume the worst.

 

In a village where your son can run around the house in the garden getting some sun, is definitely much better for his immune system than a tiny apartment. If absolutely necessary - drive to Khon Kaen but be prepared for checkpoints at every provincial boundary OR take a domestic flight. Consider whether you can bunker down in the village until the end of April or just drop him off and fly back the next day.

yep, I can see how looking after your family first is selfish. Get real ! 

The OP has had his son for a month as he took him to the UK. He never said how long he’s been back in CM. He could just have returned and hasn’t self quarantined for 14 days therefore still a potential carrier. 
If he doesn’t have a car then he has to hire one, fill up with fuel, stop for food etc. Don’t you think that puts him, his son, yai and others at risk. It’s selfish people like you who are helping spread this virus and causing untold misery to others.
