Wow two land lines. Hope there is a panic many farang ringing, get used to congestion audio. I prefer the live interaction online with Airlines. You type in your issue and get instant responses you read. Last two times I have spoken with my visa agent Thai rep and BBL rep their pronunciation and slurring words into one sentence made no sense to me. resorted to emailing their bosses for an answer.

Something is setup to help and you have to be sarcastic about.

Just be grateful that something is being done and think about how you might be able to contribute in a useful way.

What the heck is the problem with the word foreigner??

I don’t even have a problem with the word Farang, as it just describes what you see. You cannot know if someone from Germany, France, Netherlands or what else.

In my country we say „Asians“ too, because we don’t know if Japanese or Korean or Chinese when we see them. They never had any problems with that.

And when someone is from Nigeria for example and we don’t know, we say black or African.

 

I can’t believe how some people can see a problem in everything. Take care about the real problems instead!!

But that would mean that @Justgrazing would need to stop posting.

At least it is in place.

I think I was lucky to go to NZ b4 it got to bad, my Canadian friend cut his plans and went home.

Now both countries are in full lock down.

The most cases here and in VC, seem to be coming through Arab countries from people returning from holiday.

I wonder what will happen to expats in LOS if they do get sick and need hospital assistance.

I think NZ is providing assistance to Overseas Nationals and arranging special flights for their return.

Those that test positive are treated and isolated , some in Hotels.

If Boris, Prince Charles and Tom Hanks and wife contracted it, and now 8 Air NZ long haul attendants diagnosed , means it's airborne and may be traveling through the plane air-con.

The incubation period may be longer than 14 days and up to 28 days.

That why there is a Lag (pm NZ's words).

So people that came into NZ and LOS and other countries may have slipped through with no symptoms and after a month are coming up with C19, thats why the daily increase is happening, hence they are hoping to stop that with the lockdown.

None the less stay safe you guys and I certainly hope that the PM puts lockdowns in place and looks after overseas resident as we do for them.

I think a primary question that will jam the lines is one continually asked on here.....my visa, how can i extend it if i am locked down, and why is immigration still making me stand in groups and not social distance as being asked.  I may be wrong, but I could care less as it will work itself out folks, Your stuck here, and if you can afford to fly out using whats available and pay the fees that it will cost, I would do it before that is not available anymore.  For us that live here, I can not think of a reason to call the number.  You always need a back-up plan, never rely on what is in your pocket, and never live from one day to the next like the Thais do, well a large portion that is.  Stay safe and I hope you all have some amount of food to cover a longer period if it comes about.

I suspect most queries will be visa-related.

If I had the symptoms, I would be hesitant about reporting unless I was seriously ill, because I could be hauled off to an expensive hospital stay against my will. Every cell phone in Thailand is traceable.
