Visa implications of a 24 hour curfew

Recommended Posts

Rumblings of a possible 24 hour curfew. What would this mean as far as visa extensions go? Online applications? Blanket extensions?

How do 24 hour curfews work anyway? People have to leave their house to get food and water. Or are they planning on dropping off supplies to everyone?

i am not sure.  that is why i have a months worth of everything at my house.

 

it maybe that only grocery stores, pharmacies, hospitals and banks are open.

all other businesses are closed and you must be going to get food and nothing else. 

the hours may not be reduced. or maybe only while the sun is up.

In Thailand, a 24-hour curfew would not be practicable anywhere. However, in Wuhan in China, it was imposed on the population for over two months. It required highly efficient organisation that ensured daily deliveries of necessary supplies to every building in the city. There were designated delivery drivers from each warehouse, and those warehouses were supplied from outside. In the event of a medical emergency, specially equipped ambulances were sent to collect people. Even in China, imposing something like that nationwide would have been virtually impossible.

Delivery services exempt from the curfew is a possibility.

The logistics are not in place for a full 24 hr lockdown.

Like I said many times already,a large chunk of the population has no money for stockpiling

Feeding programs for the poor will take a lot of time and effort to set up.

Plus those poor will have to travel to those feeding places somehow

Yadda..yadda

Not gonna happen

If it does happen (TIT), prepare for the 'day of the machete'

I believe they would let one person per household leave once a day for supplies.

But, another thread talked about having government handing out or supplying food.

Not sure if that could work unless they took over the Makros, etc. and managed the distribution.

Need some organisation. Our village now no deliveries pass road block. Lazada drivers call us we have to go to control gate pick up delivery.

So now we there with about 10 people instead of 1 driver.

I going order a 100 small things I buy at shop usually that keep them busy. Lol

Don't even think about it, is just absolute nonsense. Imagine seeing everyone shopping in the same few hour time window? Nope. 

Statistics are not really making the situation worse in Thailand either and the entire world is already standing still.

Anyway, either we would get exempted or forced on overstay. 

If we use the Chinese model as an example, it would work like this. 1 person from each household must register online to be the one that goes out to do the shopping every second day. As for the visa stuff, the answer is obvious.
