So does Taiwan,  which so far is the only country that has successfully eradicated covid

If you mean, not recorded any new cases for a specific period, then look at Laos also.

40 days ....no new cases and no deaths at all from the virus.....

Yet still on Thailands list of dangerous countries.

Total control of borders wanted by Thailand, can be the only explanation.

Thank you. Almost makes me cry to encounter a fellow man who has gone through the nightmare of endless shopping malls and wasting precious time at yet another Thai market to eat yet another Thai dish tasting the same.. Women should have a lot of friends to go shopping and eating with. In the end, the wife does not even buy anything because "it would be a waste of money." What about waste of time? 😢

Agreed. The men here though usually only go as they have nothing else to do.

Why do people keep saying quarantines should be recommended ? The repatriation flights including mandatory quarantine on arrival program have been in effect since the scheduled flights were shutdown. Over and out !

Is that a question or a statement? If its a question the answer is NO. If its a statement you are wrong.

many of these "foreigners" that call Thailand home are offshore oil and gas workers and their shifts are structured to allow them to exploit the visa exempt entry that Thailand immigration allows.

 

On paper they are nothing more than short term tourists.

Yes.  That 'crackdown, shut many guesthouses, etc, and put countless Thais out of work - for exactly no upside.   How DARE they spend their money here like that - sneaking in on visa-exempts (no Thai consulate on the oil rig).  Now they spend their considerable incomes in other countries, instead - where Thais cannot work.

 

Just more proof that govt-policies have NEVER been about what is good/best for Thais - so why would anyone conclude what is happening now is being done in their interest?

Currently, there are no flights out for anyone but there is flights in for Thai citizens only.

 

So Thailand should at least allow flights out at least until the Pandemic improves which will be a long time for certain countries.

 

My predictions are:

April, May, June - no flights in for all foreigners

July, Aug.  - flights in for low risk countries (at the moment is China and South Korea)

 

If your country is on the high risk list, you will have to wait a long time.

 

Before making statements like that you should check your facts. Yes only Thai repatriation flights incoming agreed. However there are a few carriers flying out of Bangkok. Take flights to the UK for example. Non stop EVA flys on a Sunday. KLM and Lufthansa fly most days to the UK 1 stop.

Breaking up families based on racial discrimination, racial hatred, and racial fear of all persons who are non-Thai is the norm.  A Thai-Foreign family as a human-right?

I'm not sure about this but throwing it out there....Have a UK mate who has been married to Thai for several years. Every time she visits UK she has to obtain a visa.

I'm Oz and have Thai partner several years. She has been to Oz many times on tourist visa. Even if I was married to her I can't just bring her along for a visit. I (she) would need a visa.

I like many live in Thailand. I doubt Au would allow Thai to enter even if married.

That of course excludes folk living in Au with Thai wife and have gone down the long and expensive marriage path for the Thai to obtain PR status.
