Work permit returning to Thailand

Recommended Posts

Hi do we still need health insurance and a covid 19 test to return to Thailand? Even with a work permit. I’m reading on Korean air they only want a fit to fly to enter Thailand. Very confused I want to return but I can’t obtain a covid test but if they changed it just to a fit to fly that’s easy enough with my work permit.
 

All foreign nationals are not permitted to enter Thailand. (as of Mar 26)
   [Exemptions] special permit from Thailand authority holders, diplomats, work permit holders with a health certificate (FIT TO FLY)

   - Nationals of Thailand can enter with a health certificate and a letter from the embassy/consular general/foreign affairs dept

even on iata it doesn’t require it

Fit to fly health certificate is all you will need. Latest CAAT Notification cancelled all previous Notifications. see No. 6 https://www.caat.or.th/en/archives/48998 (negative COVID test and health insurance was as a result of 19 March CAAT Notification).

 

This info was in the Notice To Airmen (NOTAM) that was sent to airlines this evening.

Agreed, but what exactly are the requirements for a certificate.
 

The previous requirement to be fit to fly was a negative test with 72 hours.

Wasn't the fit to fly certificate when leaving Thailand and while transit up to 24 hours? And for homecoming Thai nationals. 

I read that even with a work permit you need the health certificate. I might be wrong,though.

You see, that is how a challenged mind thinks. You really feel that the person who can show a Bank Book with $1m in it needs to buy expensive insurance - he is self-insured FCS.

How many have $1m in a Thai bank? Please give me a number.

Someone sent me this today as an easier way to read the requirements. I called the embassy as well no longer needing the covid 19 test. Just a fit to fly from your physician is what they told me saying your healthy and not sick.

If you have a work permit and pay social security, you have public hospital health cover included.

Unless you own the business, in which case you are screwed.

Good and clear info.

I paid 3,800 Baht just 2 months ago for my multiple re-entry permit to use with my non immi O marriage visa which now won't permit me to leave and return to Thailand. The permit was issued based on non immi O visa not a contingency of having a work permit.

What do you call issuing a permit that legally can't be used now again?

Oh that's right. A scam.

What’s the deal with insurance companies only insuring those who have a work permit? People that work are higher risk than those that don’t. What’s the science behind this?
