packed out?

 

there are 12 tourists in this picture

 

maybe should have a look at CW this week

The office being on the first floor maybe it is crowded, in eight years Ihad never seen this kind of shelter outside there must be a reason.

or see how their citizen are treated with dis-respect in the media from government people

 

but Embassies do very little, except new passports and some easy letters

Some don't even do that!! They use agents!! Bloody job title loving civil servant cronies!!🧐🧐🧐🧐😷😷😷😷

Just in case that anybody want to know what SCIENCE says about the Corona virus:

 

The New England Journal of Medicine [the most renowned Journal for medicine in the World !!!]

Link to the Article: https://www.nejm.org/doi/full/10.1056/NEJMe2002387

 

... This suggests that the overall clinical consequences of Covid-19 may ultimately be more akin to those of a severe seasonal influenza (which has a case fatality rate of approximately 0.1%) or a pandemic influenza (similar to those in 1957 and 1968) rather than a disease similar to SARS or MERS, which have had case fatality rates of 9 to 10% and 36%, respectively.

 

The PANIC is real ... the PANDEMIC is not !!!

Still lots of Bangkok Airways flights arriving and departing Samui all day. But I suppose it's better for the  tourists to stay here than stuck in some hotel in Bangkok waiting for a flight out.

That might well be the case, I know of some foreigners that say that.

The office has only been open for less than 3 years before it was in Nathon so where do you get the 8 years from.

When are Embassies and Consulates here in Thailand from around the world going to pressure the Thai Government to end this madness?

Hmmm, what madness. You are proposing what in the face of illness. I would welcome news from carita le sources how other counties are handling Visa issues.

The UK embassies dose not even do passports now  , they have subbed it out ,you have to go to darkest Sukhumvit to the Trendy building.

is there an agent or service someone can use to send someone in their place so that they personally don't need to go there to get the extension?  there is no amount of money in the world that would bring me out there to stand among hundreds of coughing and sneezing quite-likely virus spewing tourists.

It always someone else isn't it. You couldn't have the virus already could you?

False argument. You suggest that someone who is not from this country MUST have infected it.  Many tourists came here completely healthy. If they now catch it while in country, then your assumption is incorrect.  Do not perpetuate that sort of "all tourists are infected" mentality on these forums. There is enough anti-foreigner sentiment already during this challenging time.

Foreigners complaining about foreigners.

Long term tourists complaining about short term tourists.

Non immigrant visitors complaining about other non immigrant visitors

 

Only on TVF!!
