Waiver to enter Thailand

Recommended Posts

How and where do I apply for a waiver to enter Thailand? I've contacted the Thai embassy in Stockholm, but they do not deal with it. 

UbonJoe, do you know?

On what basis would you get the waiver? Most likely you will need to be immediate member of a Thai family such as married to or the parent of a Thai.

I would think the Thai embassy would be able to help or least inquire about it.

I have 2 children in Thailand, 3 and 8 years old, shouldn't that be valid reason to obtain a waiver? Yet, the embassy claim the only way to enter is by having a wp. 

Is there any other way to go forward?

the only way is to have a work permit, or be a thai national.

Perhaps you could point out this from the entry requirements to the embassy and state you case for being a parent of Thai children.

"This does not apply to passengers with a waiver from Prime Minister or People In Charge of State of Emergency."

That same line appears in CAAT restrictions.

The embassy should be able to contact the MFA in Bangkok about it.

I already done what you proposed, both by myself and through an agent, but the Thai embassy seem very reluctant to help. And the Swedish embassy in Bangkok is not if any help.

 

Is there any other way to contact MFA, like through an agent in Bangkok?

Not sure who you would contact.

And what are the odds that Prayut himself would sign off a waiver for a person like OP? Somewhere in the ballpark of 0.00001%?

Where does it say he would have to sign it off.

First I've seen of this. Married to a Thai with a Multi O - when flights are available will I be able to apply for a waiver? If so, will I be subject to quarantine?

 

Wouldn't have thought this was possible whilst the outbreak is so bad in the UK.

In the order. But i think i know why you are missunderstanding it.

This translation from your previous post is ambiguous:

"This does not apply to passengers with a waiver from Prime Minister or People In Charge of State of Emergency."

 

I guess you understand this like:

Does not apply to passengers who have a waiver, either from the prime minister or people in charge of state of emergency.

 

But actually it means:

Does not apply to persons who have a waiver from the prime minister and does also not apply to people who are in charge of state of emergency.

 

So the "people in charge of state of emergency" are allowed to enter Thailand, but they can not issue a waiver for other people.

A waiver can only be issued by the prime minister himself, so if OP wants one, this is the way to go.

No need for a translation it is written in clear english that understand very well.

This everything it states.

- This does not apply to passengers with a work permit.
- This does not apply to passengers with a waiver from Prime Minister or People In Charge of State of Emergency.
2. Nationals of Thailand and those who can enter and transit Thailand must have a letter from the Embassy with the ‘fit-to-fly' health certificate.

And you don't think this wording is ambiguous?

(1) This does not apply to [passengers with a waiver from Prime Minister] or [People In Charge of State of Emergency.]

(2) This does not apply to passengers with a waiver from [Prime Minister or People In Charge of State of Emergency.]

You understand this as (2), but actually it means (1)
