Where Pattaya farangs stand now!

4.-Pattaya-beach-and-its-charms-are-stil

 

PATTAYA:--It has been a very confusing time for those foreigners still in Pattaya, whether by choice or by necessity.  What follows is a summary of the various regulations and advisory notices issued by both the government and by the Chonburi provincial governor.  Remember that claiming not to know about the restrictions will not protect you.

Your visa

Most reluctant stayers in Thailand can now get visa relief until April 30 at your local immigration office.  This is the subject of a separate and detailed article on the Pattaya Mail website.  One year, longstay foreigners do not have to submit their address for the 90 days report if their due date falls before the end of this month.  Nobody is sure what will happen in May.  Many people think the discretion in the prime minister’s proclamation of April 8 will simply be extended until the end of that month too. We will have to wait and see.

Wearing a mask

It is now compulsory to be wearing a mask in all public places with the attendant fines and worse for miscreants.  It is no longer true that masks are impossible to obtain locally though you may have to shop around in the obvious places such as superstores and pharmacies.  Recent advice from the World Health Organization is that wearing a mask, even if a cotton one, is better than no cover at all.  At many outlets you will likely have your temperature tested with a hand-held machine.  The maximum usually permitted is 37.5 or you may be refused admittance or referred to a medical facility

Problem of Pattaya is that people are used to ignoring rules and law, and paying for their way out of trouble.

 

The time of ignorance is gone now, and reality may come down hard on many people. Especially if 40k fines and 2 years jail terms start getting enforced.

 

It might actually become a really nice place when all of this is over. During the daytime and early evenings with the view of the sunset from rooftop pool it already is, actually.

Pls let me know when you know of either a 40K fine or 2 year sentence actually being enforced.

 

I'll be waiting....

40k yes - saw a receipt from police for 40k for violating curfew in Bangkok. 2 years jail - no, don't know of it. And given how much regulations are respected here, Thailand doesn't have enough space in jails to lock 10% of violators up.

Pls explain what the 40K fine was for exactly, being out beyond curfew hours? where did this happen BKK? Expat or Thai?

Well, it will certainly be a farang!  Thai's do not have enough money to pay these fines but certainly the rich farangs do!

Did the fine have to be paid on the spot, given a time period to pay?

 

If you can it'd be interesting to see the receipt.
